Dear Sir/Madam,

It is my pleasure to write this letter to you. First, I must ask your utmost confidentiality in 
this transaction by virtue of it  being utterly confidential. I am Mr. Steven Appiah a member of 
the Ghana Export Promotion Council (GEPC) who was with the government delegation to europe during a 
bilateral trade conference. I have decided to seek your assistance and co-operation in the 
execution of a business transaction described here under for the benefit of all parties and hope 
that you keep it confidential because of the nature of the Transaction. We basically seek your 
assistance to front in the transfer of US$30,500,000.00(Thirty Million, Five Hundred Thousand 
United States Dollars Only).

Source: I work as a Director of Project Implementation within the Ministry of Energy and Mineral 
Resources and with co-operation of three other top officials, we have in our possession an overdue 
payment in US funds. The said funds represents certain percentage of the contract value executed on 
behalf of my Ministry by a foreign contracting firm, which we the officials over-invoiced by a 
total amount of US$30,500,000.00 (Thirty Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). 
Though the actual contract cost has been paid to the original contractor, leaving the excess 
balance unclaimed. But by virtue of us being civil servants we cannot acquire this fund in our 
names, Therefore I was delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues to look for an overseas 
partner into whose account we would transfer the funds hence we are writing you this letter.

Our government is determined to pay foreign contractors all debts owed so as to maintain continued 
good relations with both the foreign governments and non government financial agencies. We have 
decided to include our bills for approval with the co-operation of some officials at the Department 
of Finance and the Central Bank of Ghana (CBG).We hereby  seek your assistance to act as the 
beneficiary of the unclaimed funds since we are not allowed to operate a foreign account. You will 
provide us with a good front and partnership to process the remittance of the money to you as a 
form of contract payment. This process will be an internal arrangement with the departments 
concerned and we will handle this here, your duty is to act as the contractor and have the contract 
sum paid to you. I have the authority of my partners to invite you into this matter and with your 
acceptance of our invitation, your share as compensation will be 30%, and 70% will be for us.

The business itself is 100% safe, fail proof and risk-free, provided you treat it with utmost 
secrecy and you follow my instructions carefully and religiously. Your area of business 
specialization does not matter as it cannot hinder the successful execution of this transaction. I 
hope I can put my confidence in you in this matter. Please contact me on my private email: to indicate your willingness and capability to assist us.

Thank you for your anticipated co-operation and I await the receipt of your message to enable me 
bring you into the complete picture of the transaction. 

Yours faithfully,
Steven Appiah.
