From.ADDO.ANTHONY, Manager, International Commercial Bank Ghana Limited. First Light Branch, Accra, Ghana. Attn: Friend I got your contact during my search for a reliable person to entrust this huge transfer project with. I am ADDO.ANTHONY, Manager, International Commercial Bank Ghana Limited, First Light Branch, Accra-Ghana.I write to solicit your assistance in a transfer deal of US$2, 850.000.00. This fund has been stashed out of the excess profit made last year by this branch of
the International Commercial Bank in which I am the manager. I have already submitted an approved end of the year report for the year 2007 to my head office here in Accra and they will never know of this excess. I have since then, placed this amount of US$2,850.000.00 on a Sundry account without a beneficiary. As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request your assistance in receiving the funds as the rightful beneficiary. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do needto stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be
a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response. With Regards, ADDO.ANTHONY,
