International Commercial Bank
Kumasi branch Ghana
Top Urgent Message, Pls.
My name is Dr Kevin Kwesi,I am the branch manager of the International
Commercial Bank (ICB) Kumasi branch Ghana. I got your information
during my search through the Internet. I am 45 years of age and
married with 2 lovely kids. It may interest you to hear that I am a
Man of peace and I don't want problem, but I do not know how you will
feel about this because you may have double mind. But I am telling you
that this is real deal and you are not going to regret after doing
this transaction with me. I only hope that we can assist each other.
But if you don't want this business offer kindly forget it and I will
not contact you again.
I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us,
as the regional manager of the International Commercial Bank, it is my
duty to send in a financial report to my head office in the capital
city (Accra-Ghana) at the end of each year. On the course of the last
year 2009 year report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the
manager made five million, five hundred thousand dollar [$5,
500.000.00] which my head office is not aware of it and will never be
aware of. I have since then place this fund on what we call SUSPENSE
ACCOUNT without any beneficiary.
As an official of the bank I cannot be directly connected to this
fund, so this informed me of contacting you for us to work, so that
you can assist and receive this fund into your bank account for us to
SHARE. Mean While you will have 35% of the total fund, Note there are
practically no risk involved, it will be bank to bank transfer, all I
need from you is to stand claim as the original depositor of this fund
who made the deposit with our branch so that my Head office can order
the transfer to your designated bank account.
If you accept this offer to work with me, I will appreciate it very
much. As soon as I receive your response, I will give you details on
how we can achieve it successfully.

low-interest loan, lottery prize,
bargain gold dust / diamonds,
work visa, etc.) in return
