“George Nduka” is the manager of the International Commercial Bank of Ghana. Or maybe he isn’t since his email address is in Canada. He says he’s been skimming money for a while, and wants to cut you in on the profits if you’ll help him cash out. The message is a standard advance fee scam, but suppose it wasn’t: do you think getting involved with international financial criminals would be a smart thing to do?

Pardon me for not having the pleasure of knowing your mindset before making you this offer and it is utterly confidential and genuine by virtue of its nature.
I write to solicit your assistance in a funds transfer deal involving US$3.5M.This fund has been stashed out of the excess profit made last 2years by my branch office of the International Commercial Bank of Ghana which I am the manager.
I have already submitted an approved end-of-the-year report for the year 2007 to my head office here in Accra-Ghana and they will never know of this excess.
I have since then, placed this amount on a Non-Investment Account without a beneficiary. Upon your response, I will configure your name on our database as holder of the Non-Investment Account. I will then guide you on how to apply to my head office for the Account Closure/bank-to-bank remittance of the funds to your designated bank account.
If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 30% of the funds while 70% shall be for me. Kindly forward your response to me immediately
