From The Desk Of Mr Thomas Durger,
The Regional Manager
Standard Chartered Bank Of Ghana
Takoradi Branch.

Dear Friend,

I am the regional manager of Standard Chartered Bank of Ghana Takoradi Branch in the western region of Ghana. I'm writing you this business proposal in good faith, worth eighteen million five hundred thousand united state dollars ($18,500,000.00) accrued from compensations by contractors whom where assisted with loans from the bank without the normal collateral when I was in position to do the business. The compensations were made by the contractors after returning the loan within the stipulated time. This was not detected by the renowned auditors from my head office and I can not keep the amount in my custody as a civil servant.

I have moved the funds into what the bank call (ESCROW CALL ACCOUNT) with no beneficiary. Meanwhile as you know I can not be directly connected to this money for obvious reasons. So my aim of contacting you is to assist me receive the funds in your bank account in your country which I know is possible if you liaise properly with me you will get 40% of the total funds as your benefit.

I want you to stand as the depositor / beneficiary to the fund and apply to the bank international remittance department for the transfer of the fund to your nominated bank account or Via ATM Card for our benefits. I will compute your particulars as the person who made the deposit in my branch, so that my head office will immediately order the transfer to your nominated bank Account. Please get back to me by indicating your interest so that we can proceed.

You should also note that the transaction would only take (5) to seven working days.

God bless you and I await your response.

Mr Thomas Durger
