From: Mr. Young Akuapem

Dear friend

My name is Mr. Young Akuapem. I am the regional manager of Standard Chartered Bank of Ghana Takoradi Branch in the western region of Ghana. I got your information on a recent bank account conference with other East African countries held in Johannesburg the capital city of South Africa.

I write you this proposal in good faith, I am a man of peace. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit you and I, as the regional manager of the Standard Chartered Bank it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head office in the capital city Accra at the end of each business year.

On the course of the last year 2012 business report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made seven million six hundred and thirty thousand united state dollars (USD$7.630.000.00) which my head office are not aware of and will never be aware of.

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 money, so my aim of contacting you is to assist me receive this money in your bank account and get 35% 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 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.

Thanking you in advance for your kind and urgent response, more so for keeping our proposal to your self.

Awaiting to hear from you, so we can move money to your bank account.

God bless you,
Mr. Young Akuapem
