on a recent bank conference with other West African countries held in
Lome the capital city of Togo in West Africa. I write you this proposal
in good faith; I am 42 years old married with two lovely kids. 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 2007
business report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager
made Five million seven hundred and twenty thousand united state
dollars($5,720,000.00) 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 30% 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.If you accept to work with me I will appreciate
it very much. email me if you think we can work together so that we can
go over the details. Thank you in advance and May god bless you and
your family.Yours truly,Mrs Joy Denis
