The Regional Manager,
Standard Chartered Bank of Ghana,
This will interest you.
My name is Joy Mensah (Mrs), I am the regional manager of Standard Chartered
Bank of Ghana Temale Branch. Am writing you this mail for something very
important; I am happily married with four lovely kids. I have been a banker
for almost 10 years.
I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit you and I, as the
regional manager of my branch 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 2009 business report, I discovered that my
branch in which I am the manager made Five
million five hundred and twenty thousand united state dollars
($5,550,000.00)USD. I have placed this funds on what we call escrow call
account, this account is strictly for onward transfer, with no beneficiary.
As an officer of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this money in
any way, so my aim of contacting you is to assist me receive this money in
your bank account and get 40% of the total funds as commission, while 60
percent comes back to me. I placed you on 40% because I believe this
business now belongs to the both of us, and your efforts and support is
highly going to be involved as well.
Up till date, no one has the knowledge of the $5,550,000.00USD you are about
to receive in your bank account, and no one will ever know of it.
All you need to do is stand and claim as the original depositor and
beneficiary of the fund in my branch so that my head office can order the
transfer of the fund to your designated bank account. There are practically
no risks involved, it will be a bank-to-bank transfer.
From the day you applied, within 6 days the money should have been
transferred and cleared in your account if all things work out well. Then I
will get back my 60% through any means we find best to do so.
Please note that all I need from you is your trust and sincerity as to
seeing this through.
am expecting your soonest reply as to enable us start doing something about
Await your swift response.
Mrs Joy mensah.
