ACCOUNT PROVISION FOR USD45.5MILLION

I am Dr. Kwesi James. The chairman, Contract-Awarding Committee of the Economic
Community of West African states (ECOWAS) with its fund headquarters in
Accra Ghana . I got your information in a professional database when I was
searching through Internet for a reliable, honest and trustworthy person
to entrust this business with. I was simply inspired and motivated to pick
your contact from the many names in the list of the directory. After discussing
my view and your profile with my colleagues, they were very much satisfied
and decided to contact you immediately for this mutual business relationship.We
wish to transfer the sum of USD45,500,000.00 (FORTY FIVE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED
THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY.) Into your personal or company's bank
account.

This fund was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by us
intentionally for the supply of hard/soft wares, pharmaceuticals/medical
items, light and heavy duty vehicles, apparels and other administrative/logistics
for the ECOMOG in Sierra-Leone and Liberia during the peace keeping projects.
This deal was deliberately hatched out and carefully protected with the
cooperation and mandate of the financial director and the secretary of the
organization. We arranged and over invoiced the contract funds supplied
by different companies from different countries during the crisis. It was
our consensus to seek the assistance of a willing foreigner to provide us
with the facilities to transfer this money out of West Africa . This is
borne out of our belief in the non-stable and porous political nature of
this sub-region.

The original contractors have been duly paid by ECOWAS banker through the
central bank of Ghana and finance ministry. The balance is suspended in
the ECOWAS grand account awaiting claims by any foreign partner of our choice
to receive the fund on our behalf now ECOWAS is intending to pay all their
outstanding balance of their contractors this year as the organization is
winding up its activities since the aim of returning peace to the countries
and the coast has been achieved. Based on the laws and ethics of employment,
we as civil servants working under this organization, are not allowed to
operate/own a foreign account. This is more reason why we needed your urgent
assistance to provide an account that can sustain this fund for safe keeping
and our future investment with your comprehensive advise, assistance and
partnership in your country. It is however agreed, as the account owner
in this deal to allow you 30% of the entire sum as compensation, 65% will
be held on trust for us while 5% will be used to defray any incidental charges
and cost during the course of the transaction.

This transaction will be successfully concluded within 14 days if you accord
us your unalloyed and due cooperation.You should provide the following for
immediate kickoff of this deal if it interests you;

*YOUR COMPANY'S NAME WITH COMPLETE ADDRESS,
*TELPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS
*NAME OF YOUR BANK, ITS ADDRESS WITH TEL.,FAX AND TELEX NUMBERS,
*THE ACCOUNT NUMBER
*THE COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS OF THE BENEFICIARY WITH TELEPHONE AND FAX
 NUMBERS.

Upon the receipt of this information, application for claim will be sent
to you to fill and return back to the organization in pursuit of the claim
legally and then be forwarded to the organization for ratification and subsequent
payment As with the case of all organized (sensitive) and conspired deals,
we solicit for your unreserved confidentiality and utmost secret in this
business.

We hope to retire peacefully and lead honorable business life afterwards.There
are no risks involved. Kindly expedite action if you are interested as we
are behind schedule to enable us utilize this golden opportunity pay out
this fund immediately which we might stand to loose, if we fail to provide
a safe account for this transfer on time at the expiration of this year
ECOWAS has mapped out for payment of all their outstanding contractors and
the dissolution of our committee. Please urgency is needed as we do not
know the time our organization will start the payment hence it is necessary
to start on time to forestall any hitch while transferring the fund into
your designated account.

Hoping to hear from you.

Dr. Kwesi James Regards,
