John Kojo, Barclay's Bank, Ghana

This scammer "name" appears on several other scams for other Ghanaian banks. This seems to be the first time we have seen a "Barclays" Bank format. Supposedly from Ghana, but the email originated in South Africa.

Dear Friend,

My name is Mr. John Kojo. I am the regional manager of Barclay's Bank of Ghana Obuasi branch in the eastern region of Ghana . I got your information when I was searching for an oversea partner among other names. I write you this proposal in good faith; I am 49 years old married with six lovely kids. I am a devoted Christian and a man of peace.

I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit you and as the regional manager of the Barclay's 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 the last year 2009
business report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made four million eight hundred united state dollars ($4.800m)usd which my head office are not aware of and will never be aware of. I have placed this funds on what we call escrow call account with no beneficiary.

As an officer 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 funds 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 funds who made the deposit with my branch so that my head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account.

If you accept to work with me I will appreciate it very much.
