The sender was "Ya Kuffour"<yakuffour@SIITEGABRENSES.NET>, although it may have been spoofed.
I pray that this mail meet you in very good health. I also pray that I wont be disappointed as assured by the person that gave me your contact.
My name is Mr. Barry Kuffour, a bank manager with Ghana Commercial Bank LTD, and I got your contact from Mr. Ichiro Yoshida who was part of United Nations Trade Organization (UNTO) delegation that visited Ghana recently. He emphasize on your wide connections as well as relaibility. He told me that you are well known in Japan and that you can be of help to me.
Well my aim of searching for a reliable partner in you is that I urgently and sincerely need your help to transfer the sum of US$18.2M into your account as my foreign investment partner. The money is part of the profits made by our bank last year in the branch where I am the manager. I have already submitted annual report of last year to my bank head office in Accra - Ghana, and they did not notice the excess profits. I have deposited the $18.2M in a coded account to avoid any trace. I cannot be directly connected to this fund because I'm still working with the bank hence my request for your involvement.
So, I need your help to get this money offshore to your country as your interest will be protected too with a share of the fund, though I have the desire to invest my own share of the money in any good business venture over there in your Country. This fund is mine, but considering your help and involvement, i proposed the sharing to be in the ration of 40% of the money will go to you as my foreign partner and 60% for me.
There is no risk involved because it would be done either by cash delivery payment to avoid any form of trace afterwards or by online bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as my foreign partner and I will present you as the owner of the money and i shall prepare all necessary legal documents to back it up in order to legitimize our claim of the fund.
However, if this business proposal offends you, do accept my sincere apology. If on the contrary you wish to achieve this goal with me, please kindly get back to me with your interest for further clarifications. Thanking you in advance for your anticipated cooperation, but note that this transaction is for someone that can be trusted because i cannot risk been denied my share when the fund finally gets to your custody.
Send your reply to my email: (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details.
