Good Morning,
 <*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
My name is Mr. Mark Darko, a banker here in Ghana. I write you this proposal in good faith and hope that you will be of assistance. In 2000 Mr. Christian Goetz a German citizen and businessman, made a fixed deposit for 60 calendar months, valued at Fourteen Million, Six hundred Thousand US Dollars (US$14,600,000.00) with my bank. I was his account officer before I rose to the position of manager. The maturity date for this deposit contract was 20th of January 2005. I have tried my possible best to locate Mr. Goetz to notify him about this, but all my efforts proved abortive. I later discovered that Mr. Christian Goetz and his wife were involved in the plane crash of CONCORDE AIRLINE [Flight AF4590], which crashed on 25TH JULY 2000 in France. You shall read more news about the crash on visiting this site, which I got during my investigation;
Now, a new Financial Law, which takes effect in two month’s time, here in Ghana stipulates that any bank account more than $5,000,000.00 [Five Million US Dollars] will be investigated and the bank shall produce the account owner for clearance. This is a Government measure to check money laundering. Since the account has no named beneficiary, I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the legal beneficiary to the account before the time elapses, as you are a foreigner, so that my bank head quarters will release the funds to your bank account. It is only a foreigner who can claim the funds in the account and I guarantee for a risk-free transaction. Let me know how much in percent (%) that you would like to take for us to work together. While I wait for your urgent reply, please, treat as top secret I am the only person having this information.
Mr. Mark Darko.
