MINISTRY OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES
We write to solicit your assistance for a transaction of mutual benefit;
believing that you will treat this with utmost confidence. We implore you to
excuse us of any embarrassment this letter might cause you, as we have not met
I have the mandate of my colleagues in Ghana to solicit for your assistance for
a business/deal we want to execute with you. We are officials of the Ministry
of Health and Social Services (MHSS) in Ghana. This Ministry awarded a
contract of USD$115,800,000.00 (One Hundred and Fifteen Million, Eight Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars) to a foreign firm for the supply and
installation of Scan machines, X-ray machines, E.C.G machines, Foetus heart and
Fasting blood sugar machines for all the University Teaching Hospitals in the
I and other senior members of my department (Contract Award Committee), in the
cause of writing the contract, we were able to over-invoice the contract sum to
the tune of USD$143,300,000.00 (One Hundred and Forty Three Million, Three
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). And it might also interest you to
know that the original contractor who executed the contract, have been paid
their contract entitlement.
Now we are left with the over-invoiced sum USD$27,500,000.00 (Twenty Seven
Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), for our mutual benefit.
All arrangements have been concluded on how this money will be transferred.
Our constraints lie on the fact that we require a foreign firm to whom the
money would be paid; the foreign firm will be portrayed as the beneficiary of
this amount as a contract sum. In fact, this is why l am writing you this
letter seeking your assistance.
NOTE : there is no risk involved in this transaction, as we have taken care of
all possible loopholes. As civil servants, we are aware that some financial
assistance will be required to successfully effect the transfer of the funds.
For this reason, we have generally agreed to reimburse you with the sum of
USD$4,000,000.00 (Four Million United States Dollars). This would be your
share in respect of your assistance, while the balance of USD$23,500,000.00
(Twenty Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) have been
mapped out for importation of telecommunication equipment, and we also seek
your help in this regard.
Please indicate your position on this matter. If you are not willing to assist
us, kindly keep the deal to yourself and inform us of your position. It is
also important l inform you that the officials involved in this transaction,
are top government functionaries who have put in years of service in this
country (Ghana). Therefore, for the maintenance of personal integrity and
prestige of all persons involved in this transaction, you are implored to
exhibit utmost secrecy through out the duration of this deal. You are strongly
advised to avoid discussing this transaction with a third party as that could
jeopardize the success of this transaction.
Meanwhile, all arrangements for the transfer have been properly organized and
further action awaits your response to this request. I am at the moment on
official assignment in Ivory Coast. In case you wish to speak with me, you can
call me on 225 05 306130. To enable you get through when calling, make sure
you do not exclude any digit from the numbers. (225 is the country code), (05
is the area code, dial the 05 exactly the way it is, do not exclude the zero).
For confidentiality sake, please do not send me email, the email address is not
a private one. Give me a call and we would arrange a better communication.
Thank you very much.
