Subject: FROM MR.DAVID ASANTE APEATU THE NEWLY APPOINTED INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE
G ood Day Mr.,
This is the Ghana Police, we are working very hard to eradicate internet scams and fraudulent activities on the internet from our country Ghana. We are now aware that our youths and youths from neighboring African countries like Nigeria and Benin are into internet scams and have ruined the lives of most of their victims. So we are now at war with these boys until we clean up the mud they' ve robbed on the face of Africa.
Everyday we receive letters from different people around the world, crying and complaining to us about how they have lost their money to these fraudsters who pretend to be white men but they are not, they are young black boys. They pretend to be elderly white men searching for a wife or wanting to give you money as a bait or stranded overseas, so they trick their victims into sending them money to enable them travel back home or to transfer money to them but they never do, instead they spend the money on cars and expensive clothes and clubbing and the victims suffer.
So everyday we go out into the city of Accra to raid the hideouts and homes of these scammers, during one of our raids we arrested a young man named Olusola Adeniyi (24 years old ). After interrogation he confessed that he scammed a man named (Mr. ,
for thousands of US dollars, we recovered from him the sum of $826,000 ( hundred and twenty six thousand ) and a Toyota Camry,and Toyota Highlander Jeep so he gave us this email believing it belongs to the man. The boy is still in our custody and will soon be going to jail.
Please Sir if you are Mr.
, then we are very sorry for what happened. We urge you to contact us. reply back to this email:(email@example.com )
to answer some questions before your money can be given back to you. Below is a photo of Olusola Adeniyi who calls himself ( William ) on the internet and he will be going to jail soon after trial.
