Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

Subject: Very Urgent Sir
From; Mr Mathew Asare
It is indeed my pleasure and honor to write you this letter, which I believe
will be a surprise to you as we have never met before, my name is Mr. Mathew
Asare. I am the regional manager of International Commercial Bank of Ghana
Ltd Tema branch in the greater Accra region of Ghana. I got your information
on our recent bank conference with other West African countries held in Lome
the capital city of Togo in West Africa.
I write you this proposal in good faith. I have packaged a financial
transaction that will benefit you and me, as the regional manager of the
International Commercial Bank Ghana; it is my duty to give a financial
report of my branch to my head office in the capital city Accra at the end
of each business year. On the course of 2005 business report, I discovered
that I deposited sun of US$31.750 Thirty One million Seven hundred and fifty
thousand united state dollars through the former director of Gold Marketing
Department of Ghana Gold Corporation. Chief, Dr, Engr. Nana Mensah in this
branch which I am the manager. He was facilitated an award of one-year-term
Gold marketing Broker to an Italian broker. He has a mutual understanding to
'TOP’ his shipments above the quantity that was officially granted to him.
This was how he generated this amount US$31.750 as being stated above in his
favor in the custody of my branch. Now Chief, Dr, Engr. Nana Mensah is late
without any beneficiary to this fund and according to the information I got
about him, he was single without any child. And my head office is not aware
of it and will never be aware of it. I have placed this funds on what we
call escrow call account with no beneficiary.
As an officer of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this fund, so
my aim of contacting you is to assist me receive this fund in your bank
account and get 30% of the total funds as commission. There are practically
no risks involved, it will be a bank-to-bank transfer, and all I need from
you is to stand and claim as the original depositor of these funds who made
the deposit with my branch so that my head office can order the transfer to
your designated bank account.
If you accept to work with me, I will appreciate it very much and you can as
well call me on my private telephone number +233246224349 for us to go over
Thank you in advance and May God bless you and your family.
Mr. Mathew Asare.
