APPROVED/DESIGNATED OFFICE FOR
FOREIGN DEBT VERIFICATION, RECONCILIATION, SETTLEMENT/PAYMENT
RE: PAYMENT OF US3, 800,000 TO FOREIGN BENEFICIARY AS INITIAL PAYMENT
FOR OVERDUE FUND
I am Mr. Thomas Ankra I have the mandate and full authority from a
super ceding authority to verify your transaction and subsequently
release/transfer your overdue funds into your nominated bank account
if no irregularity is uncovered during the process of verification.
As you may rightly want to know, this development was necessitated as
a result of massive outcry/complaint from bona fide foreign
beneficiaries globally on the issue of delay, hindrances and repeated
problems on foreign payments which also includes attachment of
difficult and unfavourable conditions from agencies, authorities and
financial institutions within ECO WAS region which in no small
measures contributed as an obstacle to foreign beneficiaries in
receiving their funds.
In order to proffer a lasting and sustainable solution to these
problems the ECONOMIC COMMUNITIES OF WEST AFRICA STATES(ECO WAS) had
to wedge into the matter by setting up a panel to review and submit
report on this sensitive issues in order to remedy the situation and
also to redeem the lost image of ECO WAS region.
In line with the report of the panel, all charges, fees and
unnecessary payments which beneficiaries were liable to for one reason
or the other have been cancelled and a total sum of US$3,800,000(Three
million, eight hundred US Dollars) have been earmarked as initial
payment for every affected beneficiaries. Therefore, the only thing
you need to do as a foreign beneficiary of the said funds from any ECO
WAS country is to procure a TAX IDENTIFICATION NUMBER(TIN) in
accordance with the new directives.
Further, note that Ghana has been appointed as the only authorized
payment centre because of its position as a sanitized and peaceful
nation, this means that all payments originally sourced and accrued
from all countries within the ECO WAS country have been channeled to
Ghana for onward transfer to qualified foreign beneficiaries.
We have been instructed to conclude the entire exercise on or before
the 1st quarter of year 2016. Any beneficiary who fails to meet up
within the stipulated period would have his/her funds paid into the
ECO WAS treasury as unclaimed fund.
Finally, to help us commence with the process of transfer in
accordance with the new directives you will be required to send us
