I got your contact during my search for a reliable, honest and a trust worthy person to entrust 
this huge transfer project with. My name is Mr. Samuel Kofi, Branch manager of a financial 
institution here in Ghana. I am a Ghanaian married with four kids. 
I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of $ 7,597,864.00 Million United States 
dollars only. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which am the manager made as profit 
during the 2005 financial year. 
I have already submitted annual report for that year to my head office here in Accra Ghana as I 
have watched with keen interest as they will never know of this excess I have since, placed this 
amount of $ 7,597,864.00 Million United States dollars only to an Escrow Coded account without a 
beneficiary (anonymous) to avoid trace.
As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money due to civil service code 
which not permits civil servants from owing or operating foreign currency account coupled with the 
fact that the fund is huge thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money 
into your bank account on my behalf.
I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there 
are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from 
you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be legally processed to 
your name and be transferred to your account.
I will provide more details if you provide me with your private telephone and fax numbers including 
your private email address so I can email, call or fax you the detailed information.If you accept 
this offer, I will appreciate your timely response to my private email:
