Greeting From Mr Anthony Owusu

Isn’t it amazing how much unclaimed money there is (allegedly, according to the scammers) lying around in African countries.  Comfortably enough to solve their debt and other problems.  Why, I wonder, do so many African scammers think I will believe that there is all this spare money in such poor countries???  That’s your thought for the day.

Meanwhile, ignore this scammer, who clearly doesn’t have access to millions of dollars.  His aim is to get you to send him your own money.

Your Attention:

I am Mr Anthony Owusu, chairman of the contract-awarding & auditing committee of the economic community of west African states (ECOWAS) with its fund headquarters in Accra Ghana. I am making this contact with you based on the committee need for an individual/company who is willing to assist us with a solution to a money transfer.

This amount $23M (Twenty Three Million United States Dollars) represents the balance of the total contract value executed on behalf of ECOWAS for supply of hospital equipments from foreign contracting firm, which we the officials over-invoiced deliberately, of which the actual sum has been paid. You will be required to.

(1) Assist in the transfer of the said funds
(2) Advise on lucrative areas for investment

Should you be willing to assist us in the transaction? Your share of the sum will be 30% of the $23 Million, 65% for us and 5% for taxation and miscellaneous expenses. To enable us commence, you should provide the followings for immediate kickoff of this deal if it interests you; your company’s names with complete address, tel. And fax numbers.

Thank you and God bless, as i wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.

Mr Anthony Owusu
