My dear friend Mr. Stephen Abase says “I will be very appreciative if you can return to me with urgent dispatch to enable me advise you on the modalities.” Real poor phrasing for a banker if I may say. Just another scam. Trash it.

Agricultural Development Bank.
Attention: Dear friend,
My name is Mr. Stephen Abase. I am the regional manager of Agricultural Development Bank of Ghana Kumasi Branch in the Ashanti region of Ghana . I got your contact when I was searching for an overseas partner to assist me through banker’s seminar held recently in London.
I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit you and I, as the regional manager of the Agricultural Development Bank it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head office in the capital city Accra at the end of each business year. on the course of report and submission of the end of the year (2006) financial activities of my branch to the head office. I discovered that my branch in which I am the head and the manager made an outstanding profit of US$4,550,000.00 (FOUR MILLION FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS) which is unaccounted and undeclared and of which the head office is not aware and will never be aware of.
I have placed this fund in what we call escrow call account without a beneficiary. As the branch manager of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this money, so my aim of contacting you is to assist me receive this money in your bank account and get 30% of the total fund as commission.
There are practically no risks involved, it will be a bank-to-bank transfer, and all I need from you is to stand claim as the original depositor of these fund who made the deposit with my branch so that my head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account.
I will be very appreciative if you can return to me with urgent dispatch to enable me advise you on the modalities.
I await in anticipation to receive your immediate response.
