My Friend Nicolas (I used the name ‘Nicole’, not ‘Nicolas’)
Greetings to you and your family.
In-fact to tell you the truth,i am so delighted about your message to me may the good Lord in his infinite mercy enlarge your coast for good this season Amen. If you can go through my message again you will understand my plight and why i contacted you,i explained myself and i left with you my private number for oral conversation +233 548 271 006. The attached file is my international passport for you to know whom you are dealing with.
Remember i am only doing this business with you in confidants hoping that nobody will betray each other at the end of this transaction,let me reassure you that there is no risk practically involved in this,all i want you to do is to stand claim as the original depositor of the funds as a staff of this bank i don’t have direct access over the funds that is why i contacted to assist me.
Like i told you in my first message,this funds is generated in my branch after the annual account of my branch(2012),as the manager of the branch i placed it in what we call( ESCROW)call account, in brief escrow call account is an account without a beneficiary. All i want from you is to apply to my head office demanding them to close your account and transfer your funds into your designated bank in your country or your business area as the case maybe it is a bank to bank transfer.If you agree to work with me i will send to you an application from my bank demanding my head office to transfer your funds before you send it to my head office you will send to me first a copy of the (FILLED)application to enable me store your information in our data base here in my branch where this fund is generated as the original beneficiary before you send it to my head office remember don’t mention my name to my head office for them not to raise an eyebrows on the fund.
I have the deposit slip the bank will request of you, i told you the source of the fund and everything about this business should be confidential. Just call me for more details i will appreciate your call.when i hear from you i will send to you a text of application for us to proceed, here in Ghana it will only take three working days(72hrs) to transfer the funds depending on our seriousness.
After our success i would like you to introduce me into a lucrative business in your country as i cannot come back here with such amount because the authority here will question me on the source of the money,i promise to offer you 40% of the total fund. Please,don’t mention my name to my head office or to anybody for the sake of my life,job and for them not to raise eyebrows on the fund,there is no risk practically involved i promised, i have paid for the transfer charges before contacting you,just stand claim and apply to my head office,i will provide the deposit slip my bank will demand of.
I wish you the best as we are about to start a life relationship,Please furnish me with all these information`s for us to proceed immediately:
Your name in full……
Country and state…..
with a copy of your identify card and working id card….Scanned
Await your urgent response.
