From: Mr. Ibrahima Gueye Director of Finance Administration and Finance ECOWAS Commission www.ecowas.int
Subject: Requesting your cooperation to transfer Thirty Million United States dollars investment funds to your bank account.
I am the Director of Finance of the ECOWAS Commission, I got your contact through the West African Free Trade Database internet portal in my search of a reliable and trustworthy foreign partner and I hope we can work closely together if we can reach a mutual agreement between us.
I am seeking your sincere cooperation to move the aforementioned funds to your country for private investment because the ECOWAS Public Service Code of Conduct Bureau highly prohibits any public officeholder from operating a foreign bank account or private investment while in active service. By virtue of my status as the Director of Finance, I would sincerely wish to confidentially establish an investment partnership with you prior to my retirement from public service by mid 2015.
On completion of the transfer of this fund to your private bank account, you will be entitled to deduct 25% of the total fund to compensate your efforts and 5% will cover all expense including tax, while the remaining 70% will be released personally to me on retirement as my private investment capital subsequent to my arrival to your country.
We shall discuss further details as soon as I receive your reply, is rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk-free.The funds will be transferred without any breach of international financial law.
