Here's his (I assume) trusty worthy offer:
Subject: Waiting your response

Head Office :
FromThe Foreign Operations Manager:
International Commercial Bank Ghana
Makola Shopping Mall P. O. Box 425 Accra, Ghana.
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. Sadiq Abbas.
I am the manager of the International Commercial Bank Ghana, Makola Shopping Mall Accra. I am a Ghanaian married with two kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of US$4.500.000.00. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit during this 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$4.500.000.00 (Four Million Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars) on a SUSPENCE 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.
Mr Sadiq Abbas
So the question... do I start a long and entertaining ruse with Mr. Abbas?
Chime in, dear reader(s).
