My Dear harry,

I have received your reply and I am thankful for your willingness to partner with me in accomplishing the transfer of the US$ 22,000,000.00. Responding to your mail, I want to assure you that this project will be a very simple and quick transaction an there will be no risk and trace involved. I expect you to keep and treat this project confidential like I mentioned earlier because my bank must not know that I am directly involved in this transaction. Also i have been waiting for your mail for sometime now, however i am very happy to hear from you.

My contacting you is based on the fact that I cannot transfer the fund to any account linked to me here in Ghana and I must ensure that there cannot be trace because of my position in the bank. I need a foreigner I can trust and whose bank account is capable of receiving the fund. I want to assure that I am very honest and peaceful and I hope you are my kind of person too. I want you to declare your interest fully because you have to convince me that you are not intending to deceive me. So, I want us to work with trust. The transaction is urgent and I expect you to know that once I receive your profile, I will have to backdate the deposit in your name and effect the transfer of the fund to your account. I shall keep you informed in details all you need to know so that you can confirm the receipt of the fund after the transfer. I want to assure you that this project is totally risk-free as long as you follow my directives and procedures promptly once we proceed.

I expect maximum co-operation from you as I await your next mail. The information I expect to receive from you include:

1. your name (in full),
2. date of birth and sex,
3. your occupation,
4. residential and office addresses,
5. telephone and/or mobile numbers,

All the above information of yours will be programmed in our bank's systems database officially as a foreign investor operating with the bank. It is my duty to ensure that you are guided in every aspect of the whole transaction which will last only 2 or 3 working days.

Immediately I receive the above details, I shall commence the process without delay. I also hope to see you in person before or after this transaction. Also, you are invited and welcome to Ghana if you wish to see me in person.

Please feel free to call me on this phone number at all times; +233-265-27-0857.
Best regards,
Joseph Kwesi Mensah

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Joseph

I see the reason you have been waiting for my reply is because I responded to your original email which was a different address. Here are the details you require:

1. your name (in full), Harry Ares Butkrak [the name Harry is a giveaway]
2. date of birth and sex, 10/10/63, male
3. your occupation, Entrepreneur
4. residential and office addresses, Level 79, Q1 Tower, Hamilton Drive, Surfers Paradise, Qld 4217 Australia
5. telephone and/or mobile numbers, My home is also my office. I am back and forth to Thailand every week, so if you rang the office you would only have to speak to someone else. I don't think that would be good for the confidentiality you require. Also I don't carry a mobile phone, my secretary takes care of it for me. Plus I can't get a decent reception in Thailand. The mobile network there is not very good.

But I have your number so if I need to I can always call you. I must say the thought of coming to Ghana sounds inviting. Could transfer some of my Thai business there.

The following email comes with attachments:

Please feel free to call me on this phone number at all times; +233-265-27-0857.

I am anticipating your due response.

Hello Joseph

I have received your attachments. I don't quite understand why you sent me your passport and work ID. However the other attachment, the scan of the Swift transaction was a blank file, nothing in the attachment. Thought you would like to know.

We don't have national identity cards in Australia so I can't supply that. Also don't understand why you want my passport photograph. If it's a photo you want, I have a lot that are better and more flattering than my passport photograph. Here are the bank details:

Account name: Butkrak Enterprises Australia Pty Ltd
Bank of Queensland
BSB: 055 778
Acct No: 11865-9966

Am about to leave for the airport to fly to Thailand again, so will be out of touch for about 24 hours. My secretary made some enquiries about flying to Ghana. Pretty good price to your part of the world flying business class.

Have a great day

Subject: Feel free to indicated your intrest fully

Hi Dear, I am writing in response to you email to me, Let me start by making it clear to you that I can not program your data as the receiver of the amount without proper identification secondly I sent you my identities because I want you to be confident dealing with me and I expect you to send across your own identity as it is very important that we build trust before the money will be transferred out of Ghana I want you to send by email attachment any valid identity of yours you can send copy of your international passport or driver license it will help and for proper documentation and identification.

This project is simple if you comply to my instructions because all I need to do upon reaching on an agreement with you is to encode your information into the swift data base system as the beneficiary and receiver of the fund in question then redirect the transfer by the appropriate department here in my bank.

This deal poses no threat against your legal rights and your expected percentage from the total amount is 40% you have to let me know if you are capable to handle this transaction, upon your response to this email, I will give further insight and directives.

I am also expecting scan copies of personal identity proof to me in your next email, Call me immediately after reading this email I will await to receive your call.

Best Regards
Joseph Kwesi Mensah.

You should not send scammers your real ID because

[The same day:]

Hi Harry,
I was really surprise to here about the rumors,that sound so funny to me but the truth is that Africans are so have to host the whole world, I was only taking my time to think about what I am about to do and must epically trust I am still not comfortable dealing with you I want you to try and give me a call or drop a telephone number where I can reach you as I am eager to speak with you, Do not misunderstand me I am only worried as you already know that the amount involve is not what we both can gamble with we need to build a strong trust between the both of us before I can neutralize the funds into the bank database on your name here in my bank and the amount will automatically be in your name as the depositor and beneficiary of the funds after that transfer of the total amount will commence by the bank international remittance unit.

I can always assure you that you are welcome to this project and I assure you of a safe transaction this transaction is 100% risk free, All i need is you assistance and trust I am ready to proceed with you but I still plead with you to call for more briefing as you know that a lot of things going on in the internet, I want to be sure that I am dealing with a real please do not misunderstand me as you know that a huge amount is involve here.

I will be waiting for your urgent response or call me on +233-265-27-0857.

I make a phone call to him but don't have any way of recording it. It really did sound like I woke him up, it took him 10 seconds to realise who was calling. I didn't say much and he just talked about secrecy and confidentiality of the transaction.

As I mentioned in my last email I am in Thailand this week. We had no satellite communication yesterday so no internet access was available. Yes the swift transaction notice did arrive from the bank. But the bank official told me in his email to wait until 12.00 noon on the 30th, that is today, before even checking my bank to see if the transfer has happened. So that is the other reason I have not bothered to reply yet. Maybe you need to speak to the guy at the ICB and find out from him what his game is. His name is Francis Owusu. He clearly said in his email to wait until 12.00 noon on the 30th. If that is 12.00 noon Ghana time, then it will be 7.00pm in Thailand and by that time the banks will be closed, so I won't be able to check at the bank until the morning of the 1st July. Don't worry I will check first thing and email you straight away.

Dear Sir

The gentleman who originally organised this transfer has just emailed me and he sounds really pissed off. He was demanding that I check my bank for the transfer, despite your instructions to wait until 12.00 noon on the 30th. 12.00 noon Ghana time is still 12 hours away. Maybe you need to get in touch with him and calm him down. Or I guess he may well be banging on your door in the morning. His name is Joseph Mensah.

I am in rural Thailand as I mentioned and was about to get on a plane to Bangkok this morning to go to the bank and find out why the transaction didn't happen. Something about laundry fees. I thought laundry fees was what I paid to Betty to wash and iron my clothes. Lucky for you I got the attached notice before I made an unnecessary round trip. It's from some outfit who call themselves WAMA. It seems they have stopped the transaction and want you to pay a fee to get it going again.

Subject: ACT FAST

Dear Harry Butkrak ,

I have just received your email and I have read the document from the West African Monetary Agency ( WAMA), This is a very serious issue and I want you to know that you are the only person in position to handle this situation at this moment. I have immediately contacted the auditors in the remittance unit to confirm this information and they have made it clear to me that this is a serious and very urgent issue and the client involve should comply with (West African Monetary Agency (WAMA) immediately .

I have gone through the Stop Order forwarded from the West African Monetary Agency ( WAMA) fund Monitoring Agency, and actually, the news is upsetting. First, I have to apologize for what ever inconveniences that this will cost you. I have read this note carefully and I understood that we really need to provide the demanded documents or pay the charges for procurement..

As at this very moment, I am not in a good mood since after I read the notice I don't even know how to respond to you to explain the development. I think my bank management is interested in knowing more about the origin of this funds. I have been in this close door meeting since 8:00am Ghana local time and the auditors from my head office has just arrived and they have sent there response to West African Monetary Agency ( WAMA) informing them that they are investigating the funds and there customer will get back to them soon. This development also affected more than five current transfers of our customers above I Million US Dollar from ICB Ghana. This has led to a situation where they have also ordered the bank Transfer Unit to stop every oncoming transaction outside Ghana until all investigations of all current transfers from the bank is concluded. This has also led to inspection of this very fund and they receiving account on your name over there in Pakistan so you must be very careful and vigilant from this moment.

Now that it is clear that we do not have the documents, all I can assure you is that I have done a proper documentation here in my bank. Therefore, you have no problem with the bank. My duty here is to protect your own interest and I am 100% sure that i have done a perfect job here. You have to understand that this Order is from a West African Monetary Agency ( WAMA) and I am very worried at this moment because I do not wish to involve myself in any form of problem with this Agency due my position as the bank staff, They are working hand in hand with the United Nations Fund Monitoring Agency.

You must be careful at this time, I am advising you to try your possible best to comply with the requirements of the Agency. As an alternative for procuring the documents you have to arrange for the sum of /USD/$3,579 , I want you to try your best to make this money available from your country even if it mean to take a loan with any interest from any source since the transfer is at the verge of completion. This is because my involvement at this point will raise suspect on me. You can contact the bank at once for advice on how you can make the payment because the bank is in a better position to handle the matter perfectly with the Agency. I am assuring you that as soon as this is accomplished, the suspension of the transferred will be lifted and you have the fund in your account without further delay.

You must have in mind that this is a deal between only the both of us you must not let them investigate the origin of the funds for security reasons. I will advise you to contact the agency and tell them you will need to get back to them and request them to provide you with the information where you will have to transfer the amount .

Do whatever you can do to solve this problem urgently as I am scared because I don't want the government to look into the origin of the fund this will also affect your personality in Pakistan. Please be careful at this time for security reasons try you best to comply urgently.

Try and get back to me urgently.

Regards,
Joseph Kwesi Mensah

[I reply to all of them. I am already hatching my next plan]

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Joseph

This is a worrying set of circumstances and like you I am also mindful of the fact that this is a serious and urgent issue. Never mind about the inconvenience, it won't cost me anything except time and fortitude to clear this matter up. I have been in touch with both parties and asked that they provide evidence of the required forms so that I can make sure I get the correct document to them.

I am writing this email while in the Red Carpet Lounge at Bangkok Airport and will soon fly back to Queensland. As soon as I return home I will speak to my bank about the necessary documentation that is required by WAMA for the transaction. I am on very good terms with my bank and I have no worries that I can obtain the laundering forms. I am certain that you have done all that you can to create the perfect documentation for the transaction. And so will I. As for needing a loan to get the fee of USD $3,579 that will not be a problem, it won't come to that, because I really will obtain the document required. So you do not have to worry.

You said you had been in a meeting all morning with the bank and "there customer will get back to them soon". I thought the customer was dead, the Late K.S.Malayappan, that is why we are getting the funds out of the country. From what I can tell from what you wrote, the bank who you work for are investigating the funds and the transaction, and are being investigated by the agency WAMA. But the bank are happy to receive a payment to get the transaction moving again while dealing with the agency investigating them? At least that's how I read it.

The next thing that puzzles me is why you are talking about me being in Pakistan and my reputation there. I have never said anything about being in Pakistan. I wouldn't do business there if you paid me, if you know what I mean. I am from Australia and most of my business is in Thailand. So I don't understand why you are talking about me being in Pakistan. Have you got me confused with someone else you are dealing with about this same business?

The boarding call has just been given so I must finish. Joseph be sure and do not worry, I will do everything necessary when I get back to Australia to get the required documentation.

Sincerely

Hello Harry,

I received your email and the content was well noted, without any further delay i wish to look into your questions you must understand that your personal data has been replaced before redirecting the transfer to your own bank account and you now stand as the beneficiary of the fund I must let you know that all documentation was made on your name before proceeding with the transfer process.

Today was public holiday here in Ghana and tomorrow a working day you must not let the bank notice that I arranged for this transaction they must not find out that I am directly involved in this transaction I have explain this to you before now and I am surprise that you are sounding as if I have never told you before try, I advice you to contact the agency to demand for the procurement of the documents I think the document will only come from the agency here in west Africa is the anti money laundry certificate and you can only procure the document from the (WAMA) office.

I am so sorry for writing Pakistan in my last email it was just a mistake and I hope you accept my apology for that verry mistake.

Regards Joseph

HARRY BUTKRAK

Hello Joseph

I'm not quite sure what you meant in the first paragraph of your last email, it didn't make much sense. I know Engrish is probably not your first language so I can make allowances. That is why you have to write everything in shorter sentences. I speak a number of languages, unfortunately French is not one of them.

It has been a long and frustrating week, but I arrived back on the Gold Coast this morning and went straight to my bank manager. As I have mentioned we can trust him implicitly. He assures me that the Bank of Queensland can provide the laundry certificate that will satisfy the authorities in Ghana. He told me in confidence, that he has produced similar certificates for other clients. Some in West Africa and some in Malaysia. All is above board and no trace can be found. He assures me that he will work on this over the weekend and have it ready for me by Monday morning.

Please be assured that your good name will not be mentioned in any of these documents or dealings.

Happy Republic Day.

I have a productive Saturday morning having a lot of fun coming up with my fake notice from the Bank of Queensland. It's only been produced in Word, but I think it looks a hell of a lot better than their attempts. The bank official's name is real in case they Google it. They will claim that the certificate is not acceptable but I will spend time and waste theirs arguing the point.

It's Saturday afternoon Aust time, Ghana have been knocked out of the World Cup. I bet the lad is not going to be happy about that and I may not hear from him for a few days.

Dear Joseph

I have good news indeed. My contact at the Bank of Queensland was more than happy to come in to work on a Saturday to organise the required certificate to revoke to stop order notice from WAMA. I've done David many favours and he was happy to return one. I have emailed it to Mrs Falamoh so I assume when she gets back in the office on Monday morning, WAMA will get the transaction moving again. Do not worry your name was not mentioned in any of my dealings or in the certificate.

Sincerely
Harry Butkrak

As of 3pm 4/7/10 this is where I am up to. Waiting for the response to me certificate.
