We want to transfer to your Bank Account overseas, the sum of
$15,000.000.00 USD (Fifteen Million United States Dollars Only) from a
bank here in Ghana, I want to ask you to provide either an existing
bank account or to set up an entirely new Bank a/c immediately to
receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive this money,
as long as you will remain honest to me till the end of this important
business trusting in you and
believing in God that you will never let
me down either now or in future.
I am Mr. James Smith, Director of International Remittance Department
with a Bank here 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.Chris Marco, a foreigner, and a sailor
and he died since 1993, and no other person knows about this account
or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and
my investigation proved to me as well that Chris Marco was the CEO of
Chris Coy. (Gh). Ltd.
I am only contacting you as a foreigner because
this money can not be
approved to a local person here, without valid international foreign
passport, but can only be approved to any 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. Chris Marco
is a foreigner too, and the money can only be approved into a foreign
You will be introduced to the Bank as the next of Kin to this late Mr.
Chris Marco since you have the same surname with him too. I got your
contact address from my secretary who operates computer and I am
revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me
down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am
contacting for this business, so please reply urgently so, that I will
inform you the next step to take.
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 will give to you, upon
your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable
and will meet up with instruction of a key bank official who is deeply
involved with me in this business.
I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down. With the
influence and the position of the key bank official we can transfer
this money to any foreigner's reliable account which you can provide
with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical
arrival in your country for sharing.
The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction
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 after which 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 look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible if you are interested.
Mr. James Smith

I got your mail and the detailed explanations you have given me on these people you are referring to me including your past ugly experiences which you went through in the hands of some unscrupulous people from Africa here.
I also got copies of your Family picture including the pictures of your ships which you sent to me for my assessment.
I have to be frank with you, I do not blame you if your are very sceptical now about being involved in any financial transaction of this sort which comes to you especially from Africa as you said that you have lost a lot of money in the process. After an elaborate meeting with my colleague whom I am doing this deal here in the Bank, we decided that we will not contact the so-called people you introduced to us because we don't trust them as such.
I am very happy with the way you have just opened up to me about your fears and you past unsuccessful attempts to assist some greedy individuals get out some money without gaining anything out of it. I felt very bad and emotionally hurt after reading this revelation from you.
Its a pity that you fell into the hands of some greedy individuals here in Africa who used you as a tool to get what they want and then abandon you at last after collecting their fund or using your name and details to get some fund approvals. What they have done is that they have milked the cow and leave it to bleed to death. Please count me out of that. I am not one of those people you were referring to.
I am not trying to tell you here that I am a saint or an angel, but when things are properly done and arranged, such extortion and lies will be reduced, if not totally eliminated by both parties. With proper planning and good Contract agreement between both parties, every body will be secured and have a sense of Security while even contributing financially to the success of the deal because at the end of the day, one is sure of getting back all the financial input and expenses done before the fund is released and transferred overseas.
To deceive you and tell you that a dime will not be spent in actualising this deal, and after start asking you for financial assistance in disguise is never in my agenda. I have to lay all the cards on the table and allow you to choose your option and make a decision whether to proceed with me or back off. This is the reason why I am being open to you so that you will know the type of person you are dealing with.
You see, here in Africa, there is a lot of Corruption and this is the reason why we want to use this loop hole to make much money form the weak Banking system here. Its not a question of one being a saint or a devil, but its has not come to a decision of "if you cant beat them, join them". If you donut do this, another person here in our office will cash on the opportunity and carry it out and therefore one will lose.
I am real and Genuine and the successful conclusion of this deal will different the wheat from the chaff if you will agree with me. Out of ORIGINAL, COMES FAKE. If there is no original, there wont be any fake where to be copied from. I know that money is not everything, and that is why I am being honest to you so that you will not regard everybody as the same. THERE ARE HONOURS AMONGST THIEVES. In as much as I am into deal, it does not mean I am a bad person. I am only trying to utilize an opportunity here in our Bank which avails itself. If I don't do that, somebody else might do it and I will lose at last.
You see, I have to be sincere to you, some financial input will be needed from both of us to actualise this dream. I will handle and be responsible for the expenses to be made here in Ghana, while any other expenses overseas will be handled by you. That's the bitter message and I cant hold it back from you. But the question we will have to ask our self is this. Are these expenses justified or not, are they going to be re-coupe at last? The answer is YES. No expenses will be in vain.
This is why we have to enter into a binding legal agreement between us to protect both parties from any breach before we will commence this financial transaction. This will give you a secured mind to contribute to the successful conclusion of this deal.
If the fund is finally approved for you, I am making arrangement to have it moved to any Asia country through one of our FIDUCIARY PAYMENT AGENTS so that you will proceed to the Payment Centres to claim the fund. In this arrangement, the fund will be released to you in cash and you arrange to lodge them in the Bank yourself from there and give them a transfer instructions for the fund to be transferred to your nominated Bank Account in Malaysia.
You willhandle and be responsible for all arrangements on the off shore Release Centres through the Fiduciary Agents in Asia. This is the only area you will play a more prominent role so as to have confidence in the entire transfer process. You will handle everything by yourself there and be more convinced of what we are doing. Once the fund is confirmed transferred to you in Malaysia, I will come over immediately to have my own share and start the investment of my share there under your care and advise.
I have sent to you, a copy of my International Passport so that you will know the person you are dealing with. You can use it tocarry out due diligence on my person before deciding to proceed with me.
Let me hear from you after taking a decision to proceed or not, but please do let me know your decision in your next mail no matter what it will be. I have mapped out some time frame for this deal and wish not be delayed further.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
