Good Day,
          May I beseech your indulgence to solicit for your Co-operation in a mutual beneficial business opportunity which involves safeguarding funds?
          In a brief introduction, my name is Mr. John Baffour. The chairman, Contract-Awarding Committee of the African union AU with its fund headquarters in Accra Ghana. I am a Ghanaian married with two kids and my wife is currently pregnant. I got your contact during my search for a reliable, honest and a trustworthy person to assist me in the transfer of $ 7.7millionUSD. (Seven million, seven hundred thousand united state dollars). This fund was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by me intentionally for the supply of hard/soft wares, pharmaceuticals/ medical items, light and heavy duty vehicles, apparels and other administrative/logistics for the Sierra-Leone and Liberia during the peace keeping projects.
         I arranged and over invoiced the items supplied by different companies from different countries during the crisis. It is my desire to seek the assistance of a willing foreigner to provide me with the facilities to transfer this money out of West Africa.
        The balance is suspended in the AU grand account awaiting claims from any foreign partner of my choice to receive the fund on my behalf. Now AU is intending to pay all their outstanding balance to 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. I would like you to provide me with your private telephone and fax numbers including your private email address. With this informationís 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
I await your immediate response
Mr. John Baffour
