A very good day to you.

I am DR.DAVID OBASI, an accountant and principal overseer with the Ghana Mining Corporation. I got your contact through a friend in my local chamber of commerce in collaboration with the American Consulate here in Ghana. This is in line with my quest for a reliable and reputable person/company to handle a very confidential transaction, which involves transfer of fund to a foreign account.

This said fund (US$20.5m) Twenty million, five hundred thousand United Statesdollars, is reportedly made to be a variation and accumulation of equity investment made in the South African Mining corporation in the period of 1983-1987.

This redeemable investment interest, has now matured and has long been cleared for disbursement but with no apparent knowledge of who the investors are, as most of the investors then, were corrupt government officials and their cronies under the obnoxious apartheid regime who used pseudo names and aliases in the transactions, and could not come up for claims under the present political setting in Ghana.

After due consultative sessions with my colleagues in the account department at the mining corporation, I discovered that none of them knows about the funds. So I decided to confiscate the funds and placed it in a private trust company for safe keeping, awaiting further transfer to a foreign account for further business ventures.
I cannot handle this transaction on my name because we were not allowed to operate an offshore account while still in service. What I need now is a foreign national who can assist me in the transfer of this fund, and also to help invest the fund in a risk free venture.

If you are Willing to assist me in this transfer, I have agreed to compensate y ou with a certain percentage(20%) of the total sum (US$20.5m) through mutual negotiations.
Your specialty is not a barrier to this transaction as I have mapped out strategies to effectively actualize this transaction.

Thank you for your anticipated co-operation, and I hope to hear from you soon, to enable me give you full details of the transactions. And also remember to maintain absolute confidentiality as any leakage of information may jeopardize our chance of receiving this money.

Best regards,
