Subject: Urgent attention needed/ Kindly view the message for more details
I am Mr. Gregory K. Akuffo, an Accountant and presently the director of currency operations in our Apex bank. I decided to contact you for a business relationship which shall be of great mutual benefits to two of us. I searched and got your contact/profile which attracts and convinces me that you are a foreign partner I can trust to have a business relationship with.
Recently, there was order from my government for immediate change of faces and domination's of our local currency notes. This is to checkmate fake currencies injected into our economy by some group of Chinese and Lebanese business men. A deadline was given to all citizens to pay in all the cash with them into their commercial banks to enable the central bank release its equivalents to the concerned commercial banks with the new currency notes already in circulation.
Probably due to high rate of illiteracy in my country, many local business men/women did not comply with government orders/directives until after the deadline when they brought their out the currency note bills in their possession.
Unfortunately, the money is no longer considered as our legal tender, so it is now wasteful and useless. But all the money now considered waste have been brought to apex bank by commercial banks for destruction by burning in accordance with government directives. But I have included the total wasted value in my statement of account to the presidency to be among cash recovered and changed to the new currency notes. The total value in cash is (Fifty Five million US dollars only) after changing it to US dollar Bills in the black (Parallel) market.
For obvious reasons, I cannot spend this money here or place it in any commercial bank in my country to avoid suspicion, notice or exposure to my authorities, so with my influence and contacts, I succeeded in moving the money to a destination that would be disclosed to you later. It is my friend who works with International Monetary Fund(IMF) that quickly assisted me in moving the money out of my country to enable me have enough time to seek a trusted foreign partner who will
receive the money on my behalf for safe keeping and investment.
As I said earlier, I am contacting you on trust to help me receive this money over there. I want to invest it over there in any good business you may advise on. I have agreed to give you 30% of the total money as your commissions for helping me receive the money and you are expected to advice on how/where to invest the money.
In-fact I have concluded arrangements to make delivery of this money to you as it is contained cash in a bank save trunk box within 48hours after receiving your positive response. Of course, I do not expect you to discuss this matter with any body no matter who the person is to you. It is a 100% risk free as you can already understand. For confidential reasons, reply me through this private email address: email@example.com
and I shall get back to you with more details
on the logistics.
Thanks & Best Regards,
Mr. Gregory K. Akuffo.
