FROM THE OFFICE OF ENGR.BENSON AGYEMAN
MINISTRY OF WORKS AND HOUSING,
HIGH STREET, MINISTRIES COMPLEX,
First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction,this is
by virtue of it's nature as being utterly confidential and top secret as you
were introduced to us in confidence through the Ghana Chamber of Commerce,
foreign trade division.
We are top officials from the Ministry of Works and Housing,(MWH),Ministry of
Finance and the presidency,making up the Contract Review Panel (CRP) set up
by the Government of Ghana to review contracts awarded by the past
In the course of our work on the CRP, we discovered this fund which resulted
from grossly over-invoiced contracts which were executed for the MWH during
the last administration. The companies that executed the contracts have been
duly paid and the contracts commissioned leaving the sum of US$17.4 Million
floating in the escrow account of the Bank of Ghana ready for payment.
I have therefore been mandated as a matter of trust by my colleagues in the
panel to look for an overseas partner to whom we could transfer the sum of
US$17.4M legally subcontracting the entitlement to your company.This is
bearing in mind that our civil service code of conduct forbids us from owning
foreign company or running foreign account while in government service hence
the need for an overseas partner.
We have agreed that the funds will be shared thus after it has been paid into
(1) 30% of the money will go to you for acting as the beneficiary of the fund.
(2) 10% has been set aside as an abstract projection for reimbursment to both
parties for incidental expences that may be incurred in the course of the
(3) 60% to us the government officials (with which we wish to commence an
importation business inconjunction with you ).
All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for the smooth
conclusion of the transaction within ten to fourteen days of commencement
after receipt of the following information:
YOUR COMPANY NAME,ADDRESS,COMPANY'S DETAILS,TELEPHONE & FAX NUMBERS.
These information will enable us make the applications and lodge claims to the
concerned ministries & agencies in favour of your company and it is pertinent
to state here that this transaction is entirely based on trust as the solar
bank draft or certified cheque drawable in any of the Bank of Ghana
correspondent bankers around the world is going to be made in your name.
