Dear Friend ,
First, I must solicit your confidence in this letter. I am Dr John Mensah, the director of treasury and bill exchange at the foreign remittance department in the ministry of Mines and power where I work. Myself and three other colleagues in this department are currently in need of a foreign partner who will present a designated safe foreign account where we can transfer into the sum of ($7,700.000.00). This fund accrued legitimately to us as commission from foreign contracts, through our private connections. The fund is presently waiting to be remitted by the UBA bank to any foreign bank account presented by us for this remittance.
I have been delegated as a matter of trust by my colleague, to look for a honest foreign partner in whose account we will transfer the sum of $7,700,000.00 us dollars for mutual benefit and further investment projects in your country. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to your own share of the total sum as gratification. We have agreed that 30 % of this money will be for you as our foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign bank account for the transfer, 5% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the transfer process and 65% would be for me and my colleague.
And other necessary information will be sent to you as soon as possible you get back to me.
Here is my information below:
Dr. John Mensah.
