Esteemed Compliments,

I anticipate that you read this mail quickly and let me know your opinion or willingness on this classified information that I will release to you. Firstly, I am a happily married man with 3 kids and therefore I would not want to jeopardize this opportunity to change my financial status that will give my family a secured future.

I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us, as the Branch Manager of the Eco Bank Of Ghana, It is my duty to send in a financial report to my Head Office in the capital city Accra-Ghana at the end of each year. On the course of the last two years report (2007), I discovered that my Branch in which I am the Manager made a proceed of $12,850,000.00 (Twelve Million Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars) which my Head Office are not aware of nor must they know that I am involved in this transaction.

I have since place this fund on what we call SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without any beneficiary. As an Officer of the bank I am not directly connected to the fund, this is why I am contacting you for us to work so that you can assist in receiving this money into your Bank Account for us to SHARE, while you will have 35% of the total fund. Note there are practically no risk involved, it will be bank to bank transfer, all I need from you is to stand as the Original Depositor of this fund who made the deposit with our branch so that my Head Office can order the transfer to your designated Bank Account. If you accept this offer to work with me, I will appreciate it very much. As soon as I receive your kind response, I will give you details on how we can achieve it successfully.

Does anyone actually fall for this stuff? Maybe some elderly that are not in full use of thier faculties, but anyone else that would take this offer up deserves to be parted with thier cash IMO.
 
These letters have been floating around for years. I get one a week. Usually "a relative of mine" has been killed
in a car accident, with all his family. I am the only heir this "barrister" can locate. He, of course, is willing to share
fifty five percent with me. It's called a scam !!

Just remember when you respond to one of these e-mails, even if you are sending them fake information they use that response to confirm they have a live E-mail account and then just send even more and more scams and junk. Best to just delete it without even opening it up and go on your way.
 
Way back in the 80s, when I got my first one of these, it was sent US mail. Back then, they were nowhere near as "sophisticated" as they are now. In other words, they had no or very little ability with English. I remember it because I got a letter from one guy that was 26 lines long and had one comma in it. Talk about your run on sentences, it was a riot. Just kept going and going.
 
Wait a second, are you saying I really won't save $100k on my mortgage or gain 75mm.....err never mind!
