Good Day, Remittance of $15.5 Million Compliments, My name is Mr Ignatius Acheampong Kofi, a Ghanaian national, married with a wife and two children,I got the information concerning you from my search for a reliable Person and after having prayed over it, I decided to contact you believing that you will accept to be my partner in this business. Following the approvals received by this office for the onward transfer of the above referenced fund, you are by this notice informed that your urgent assistance is required in receiving the approved fund floating in an offshore payment Account. This is as result of grossly over invoiced contracts which were executed by a (Deceased) national of Foreign country on the Oil Refineries in Sao Tome and Principe.This contract was deliberately over invoiced to the tune of 15.5 Million US Dollars.This was a deal by my committee to benefit from the project. I have therefore been mandated as a matter of trust to look for a foreign partner into whose account we could transfer the sum of USD 15,500,000.00 (Fifteen million, five hundred thousand Us Dollars only). We have agreed to share the funds once you have received it in your account.If you are interested, please contact me urgently through this email, and you can as well forward to me your FULL NAME AND CELLPHONE NUMBER For easy conversation. As soon as we have been able to reach an understanding, payment of the funds will be activated by feeding of your data into a payment system, followed by a signal that will be sent to the paying bank to remit funds into your nominated bank account within 7 official working days of commencement.I send this mail with a high degree of urgency and will await your kind and speedy response.PLEASE KINDLY GET BACK TO ME WITH THE FOLLOWING (FULL NAME AND CELLPHONE NUMBER) ITS IMPORTANT Thank you, Mr.Ignatius Acheampong Kofi
