Greetings,From Mr Kofi Mensah
With warm heart I offer my friendship, and greetings, and I hope this mail meets you in good time. However strange or surprising this contact might seem to you, as we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past. I humbly ask that you take due consideration of its importance and immense benefit. My name is Mr. Kofi Mensah. I am the regional manager of Barclays bank of Ghana takoradi branch in the western region of Ghana. I write you this proposal in good faith; I am married with two lovely kids. I am a devoted Christian and a man of peace.
I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit you and I, as the regional manager of Barclays bank, it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head office in the capital city Accra at the end of each business year. On the course of the last year 2007 business report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made five million eight hundred and fifty thousand united state dollars ($5,850,000.00) which my head office is not aware of and will never be aware of.
I have placed this funds on what we call escrow call account with no beneficiary. As an officer of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this money, so my aim of contacting you is to assist me receive this money in your bank account and get 30% of the total funds as commission.
There are practically no risks involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, it will be simply a bank-to-bank transfer, and all I need from you is to stand claim as the original depositor of these funds who made the deposit with my branch so that my head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account under few working days. If you accept to work with me I will appreciate it very much as you are the first and the only person I am contacting for this transaction.
At this juncture, I wish to tell you what prompted me to package this deal. I have a daughter who has leukemia, a disease of the blood, and she needs a bone marrow transplant or she will die. I want this transplanting to be done in any good childrens hospital in your country if there is one. Once this fund is transferred into your account, I shall resign from my job and bring my family to start a new life in your country. I would be grateful if you would help me invest my own part of the money in a very profitable business. I have worked for this bank for the past 15 years yet I have nothing to show for it, I really need your assistance to secure this fund as soon as possible.
Reply back as soon as you receive this message through this email adress( or (+233 272159997)  if you think we can work together so that we can go over the details.Thank you in advance and May God bless you and your family.
Truly yours,
Mr Kofi
