ECONOMIC COMMUNITY OF WEST AFRICAN STATES(ECOWAS)with Headquarters in
Lome, Togo.I got your contact through Network on line in my search for
a reliable and reputable person to handle a very confidential
transaction that involves a transfer of fund to a foreign account and
I decided to write you.
After discussing my view and your profile with my colleagues,they were
very much satisfied and decided to contact you immediately for this
mutual business relationship.We wish to transfer the sum of USD 9.5M
(Nine - Million,Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only.)into
your personal or company`s bank account.
This fund was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by
us for the supply of
ammunitions,hard/softwares,phamaceauticals/medical items,light and
heavy duty vehicles, apperals and other administrative logistics etc
for the ECOMOG in Sierria-Leone and Liberia during the Peace Keeping
This DEAL was deliberately hatchedout and carefully protected with all
the attendant lope holes sealed off.As the Chairman of CAC,I have the
cooperation and mandate of the Financial Director and the Secretary of
the Organisation.We arranged and over invoiced the contract funds
supplied by different companies from different countries during the
crisis.It was our consensus to seek the assistance of a willing
foreigner to provide us with the facilities to transfer this money out

This is borne out of our beleif in the non-stable and sporous
political nature of this sub-region.The original contractors have been
duely paid by the Banque Centrale Des Etats DeL`Afrique

bankers-INTERNATIONAL BANK OF AFRICA(IBA)UNION TOGOLAISE DE

activities since the aim of returning PEACE to the countries and the
coast as been achieved.Based on the laws and ethics of employment,we
as civil servants working under this organisation, are not allowed to
operate a foreign account.This is the more reason why we needed your
assistance to provide an account that can sustain this fund for safe
keeping and our future investment with your comprehensive
advise,assistance and partnership in your country.
It is how ever agreed,as the account owner in this deal to allow you
30% of the entire sum as compensation, 65% will be held on trust for
us while 5% will be used to defray any incidental charges and
costduring the course of the transaction.This transaction will be

to retire peacefully and leave a honourable business life
