Dear Friend,

I got your contact during my search for a reliable, trust worthy and Honest person to introduce this transfer project with. My name is Mr.Usman Omar I am the manager of the Sg-ssb Bank Ghana, I am a Ghanaian married with two kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of US$

This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit during last year in my Head Office here in Accra and =they will never know of this Excess. I have since then, placed this amount of US$ (Five Million two hundred Thousand United States Dollars) on a SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus, I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved= in this.

It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel safer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer,
I will appreciate your timely response.

With regards,
Mr.Usman Omar
Assalamo Alaykom.Wasalaam to you(GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF GOD),and how are you

I am HAJIA FADILAH FAHAD from Libya. I am married to Late Mallam USMAN FAHAD of
blessed memory was an oil explorer in Libya and Kuwait for twelve years before
he died in the year 2000. We were married for twelve years without a child. He
died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we
were both devoted Muslims. Since his death I too have been battling with both
Cancer and fibroid problems. When my late Husband was alive he made a huge
deposit in millions of US dollars with a Deposit Company in oversea. (I will
tell you the amount as we proceed). Recently, my doctor told me that I have
only six months to live due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is
my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to
either a Muslem organization or devoted Muslim individual that will utilize
this money the way I am going to instructs herein. I want this Muslim
organization or individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund mosques,
orphanages, widow

The Holy Quran emphasizes so much on ALLAH'S benevolence and this has encourage
me to take the bold step. I took this decision because I don't have any child
that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are into some radical
organisations and I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an
Unholy manner.Hence the reasons for this bold decision. I know that after death
I will be with ALLAH the most beneficent and the most merciful. I don't need any
telephone communication in this regard because of my health,because of the
presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know
about this development. With ALLAH all things are possible. As soon as I
receive your reply I shall give you the contact information of the Deposit
Company in oversea where the money was deposited. I will also issue a letter of
authority to the Deposit Company authorizing them that the said fund Have being
willed to you and a copy of such authorization will be forwarded to you.

I want you and the Muslim community where you reside to always pray for me.My
happiness is that I lived a true devoted Muslims worthy of emulation. Whoever
that wants to serve ALLAH ust serve him in truth and in fairness. I will not
stipulate any precise amount to reward you as it will have to be on
pre-negotiated terms,based on your level of involvment.Please always be
prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give room in
sourcing for a Muslim organization or a devoted Muslim for this same purpose.
Until I hear from you my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders.May the
Almighty ALLAH continue to guide and protect you.

Allah Hafiz.
