Dear Sir/Madam, RE: ASSISTANCE TO TRANSFER OVERSEAS THE SUM OF US$150,380,000.00 My regards to you and your family. I am Dr Henry Kofi Wampah, Governor Bank of Ghana. I am contacting you because of my experience in the bank and about a dormant account of US$150,380,000.00 (One Hundred and Fifty Million Three Hundred and Eighty Thousand United States Dollars). I got your contact from the Chamber of Commerce of Ghana during my search for a foreigner to assist me in moving the funds overseas and I decided to contact you directly to solicit your assistance and guidelines in making a deal about the transfer of the funds from my bank to your account for our investment. In April 2006, Lu Yunpeng, a Multimillionaire and President of Henan Based Yunpeng Cultural Development Co., Ltd China moved some cash from Europe to my Bank here in Ghana for investment in Gold Business. The Funds arrived during the time Lu Yunpeng was been tried for murder in China and as his Account Officer he instructed that I should put a hold on the funds depending on the outcome of his trial. In May 2006, he was sentenced to death and the funds remained unclaimed till date. As his Account Officer at that time, I was aware that nobody knew about the funds except his Cousin who was also sentenced to death with him. Upon completion of the transfer of the funds to your account, we shall share this way, 30% of the money to you for your assistance to receive the money and 70% for me. I do need to stress that there is practically no risk involved in this transaction, since every necessary documents to back up the claim will be provided. It’s going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. Please reply through my private email email@example.com with your NAME, TELEPHONE NUMBER AND FAX NUMBER. Regards, Dr Henry Kofi Wampah Governor Bank of Ghana
