RE: TRANSFER OF $280,000.000.00 USD (TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY MILLION DOLLARS
We want to transfer to overseas ($ 280,000.000.00USD) Two hundred and Eighty
million United States Dollars only) from a Bank in Africa, I want to
ask you to
quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to
provide either an existing bank account or to set up anew Bank a/c immediately
to receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as

trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down
or in future.
I am Mr. Ethelbert Okon, the Auditor General of a bank in Ghana, during the
course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in
the bank in 1990 and since 1993 nobody has operated on this account again,
after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner
of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do
not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.
The owner of this account is Mr. Arthur Coleman , a foreigner, and an
Industrialist, who died since 1993 and no other person knows about
or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my
investigation proved to me as well that Arthur Coleman until his death was the
manager of Coleman Co.ltd. Ghana.

successful transaction without any disappointment from your side, we shall re-
apply for the payment of the remaining amount to your account. The amount
involved is ($ 280,000.000.00USD) Two hundred and Eighty million United States
Dollars only) . I want to first transfer $100,000.000 (One Hundred million
United States Dollars) from this money into a safe foreigners account abroad

without valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to a
foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c
because the money is in US DOLLARS and the former owner of the a/c Mr. Arthur
Coleman is a foreigner too, and the money can only be approved into a foreign

agreement that will bind us together before transferring the money to any
account of your choice where the fund will be safe before we fly to your
country for withdrawal, sharing and investments. I need your full co-operation
to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment
to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I
to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are
capable and will meet up with instructions of a key bank official who
involved with me in this business.
I need your strong assurance that you will never, never let me down. With my
influence and the position of the bank official, we can transfer this money to
any foreigner's reliable account which you can provide with assurance

immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place and to build
confidence you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face
I will make this remittance in your presence and three of us will fly to your
country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account.
I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you
are ready to act and receive this fund in your account. I will use my position
and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money
to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and
foreign exchange departments. At the conclusion of this business, you will be
given 10% of the total amount, 85% will be for me, while 5% will be for
expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring.
