Good day sir/madam, My name is Mr Roger Thompson I am a retired banker of Standard Chartered Bank of Ghana Ltd. I do not want problems but I just hope you can assist me, I write you this letter in good faith, I have a transaction of three million seven hundred thousand dollars:($3,700,000.00). I realized this fund from bank excess profit after trading with the capital sum and I deposited the funds in escrow call account. Where nobody will have access to it. Even the bank does not have access to this account because it cannot be deducted, until after the transfer. Finally I did not declare this fund to the bank before my retirement. I am contacting you, to stand as the beneficiary of this fund because only a foreigner can stand as the beneficiary. Can I trust you to hold this money for me until I come over to your country? After the transfer, I will give you 30% of the money as your commission. If you accept my offer, but if you do not accept this offer kindly forget that I contacted you, all I need is for you to get a good current account where this fund can be transferred into and for you to stand as the beneficiary of the said amount, within three days the funds will be transferred to your designated bank account. There are practically no risks involved, it will be a bank-to-bank transfer. I hope you understand my situation, I am critically ill that is why I contacted you to finalize this transaction to enable me have a very good medical treatment. It will be my pleasure doing business with you, My regards, Mr Roger Thompson
