From: Mr. Lawal Olu
Treasury Dept Bank of Ghana
I know this letter will come to you as a surprise because you do not know me before; my name is Mr. Lawal Olu, Treasury Dept Bank of Ghana.
During the airlift of some presidential luggage’s to Europe I and my colleagues in the above department unanimously decided to include additional luggage containing US$4.8Million only for our own benefit though it was labeled “Photographic Equipment” for security reasons. I am obliged to contact you to assist us on getting the luggage cleared from the agent and delivered to you. As we have agreed on the following tames.
(1) All relevant documents to claim the luggage will be procure in your name to enable the agent deliver the luggage to your mailing address.
(2) You will be entitled to a share of 25% of the total amount.
(3) 5% of the total amount will be set aside for expenses on both sides.
(4) 70% of the total amount will be for my colleagues and me.
If this business terms and conditions are ok by you, kindly contact me on this mail address, also, furnish me with your full names, mailing address and your personal telephone / fax numbers, for easier communication for immediate forwarding to the agent in Europe.
Note that this business is 100% risk free, as all relevant documents to back up the claim will be procure on your name, however we advice you to keep the entire transaction close to yourself until you received the luggage. For security reasons other modalities will be discussed as soon as you response to me.
Mr. Lawal Olu
Don’t laugh. Lots of people fall for this crap every day.
