Good Day,

My name is Mr Wayne Collins. I am with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

This is to intimate you of a very important information which will be of a great help to redeem you from all the difficulties you have been experiencing in getting your long over due payment due to excessive demand for money from you by both corrupt Ghana Bank officials and Courier Companies after which your funds remain unpaid to you. The IMF is on your side.

IMF Resident Representative Office in Ghana. It may interest you to know that the IMF reports have reached our office by so many correspondence on the uneasy way which people like you are treated by Various Banks and Courier Companies across Europe to Africa and Asia and we have decided to put a stop to that and that is why I was appointed to handle your transaction here in GHANA.

All Governmental and Non-Governmental parasites in Ghana, NGOs, Finance Companies, Banks, Security Companies and Courier companies which have been in contact with you of late have been instructed to back up from your money transaction, and you have been advised NOT to respond to them anymore since the IMF is now directly in charge of your payment.

You are hereby advised NOT to remit further payment to any institutions with respect to your transaction as your fund will be Transfered to you directly from our source. I hope this is clear. Any action contrary to this instruction is at your own risk.

Respond to this e-mail on ( with immediate effect and we shall give you further details on how your fund will be released. Also call me as soon as you send the e-mail so that you will be given an immediate response:
