From: Mr.Henry Kwesi
Plot No.7-Flat 4 Kweku Innocent Crescent,
Labadi district
Accra - Ghana.
(RE: TRANSFER OF ($ 42,000.000.00 USD}
We want to transfer to overseas ($ 42,000.000.00 USD) from a prime bank here in Ghana, I want to ask you to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who
will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a 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.Henry Kwesi, Director of International Relation 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 2001 and since 2002 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
The owner of this account is Mr. Louis Kennedy, a foreigner, and a sailor, and he died since 2002. 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 Late Mr. Louis Kennedy was the manager of K.Louis.(Gh).
LTD. We will start the first transfer with Twelve Million USD [$12,000.000.00] upon successful transaction without any disappoint from your side, we shall
re-apply for the payment of the remaining amount to your account, The amount involved is (USD 42M) I want to first transfer $12,000.000 [Twelve Million
United States Dollar from this money into a safe foreigners account abroad before the rest, but I don't know any foreigner in my life, 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.
Louis Kennedy was a foreigner too, [and the money can only be approved into a foreign a/c. Arrange your A/c and send it to me as follows for the processing
of the payment:
Bank name.....................
Bank address...................
Account name...............
Account no.......................
Routing no..........
Swift code...............
Bank phone/fax..........................................
Your telephone number home, office or Mobile.
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. Send also your private telephone and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit as started above. 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 helping us 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 to 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 will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive this fund in your account. I will apply for the
legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and Foreign Exchange Departments.
At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 30% of the total amount, 60% will be for me,5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred
during the process of transferring and 5% will be for orphanage homes. I look forward to hear from you as soon as possible if you are interested.

Hi Stephen just got through reading Live fire at long last. Loved the Thailand setting. Glad to see the spectre of Richard Yokely lurking in the background once again he's a great character in my opinion.

Just wondering if these scammers are the subjest of some research for a new book.

Love your work.
