Hello Sir,
 
Please, may i ask for your patience to go through my story below and let me know if I will have your confidence to help me achieve the desired success of what I am going to disclose to you in this message?

My name is Thomas Peprah, I am contacting you on behalf of my elder brother Dr. Kwame Peprah, who is being incarcerated by the ruling party of Republic of Ghana , my father is politician under the platform of National Democratic Congress (NDC) executive committee. He along two other members, Alhaji Ibrahim Adam former Minister of Food and Agriculture, George Sipah Yankey, former Director of the Legal Sector, Private and Financial Institutions Division of the Ministry of Finance, were sentence to various jail terms, by the current ruling party New Patriotic Party (NPP).
 
My aim of contacting you is to crave your indulgence to assist me in securing some funds abroad for safe keeping on behalf of my elder brother, which he incidentally kept to finance the forth coming elections in 2008. Fortunately my elder brother were able to deposit the money (anonymously) with the security company's vault here in Accra-Ghana pending when the fund would be needed, which he told the security company authorities that it was precious item belonging to his foreign business partner in abroad for safety of the money not to be tampered until when he will be ready to ship it abroad.
 
The need to contact you arose from the fact that the present government is bringing down on the opposition and trying to trace all the funds that belong to it, which if they succeed in tracing this fund to my elder brother, they will seize it and thereby incapacitating his campaign abilities. Here my elder brother advised me to look for a foreigner that will be reliable and trustworthy to assist me to stand as my elder brother's foreign business partner abroad whom my elder brother made the deposit on his behalf, to claim the box of money from the security company and ship it overseas for your safe hand keeping in other to avoid any trace from the ruling party in government.
 
All I need from you is an assurance that you can handle the amount involved fifty two million United States dollars only (US$52,000,000) comfortably and that I can also trust you with this arrangement.
 
My elder brother is promising 25% of the whole amount for any assistance, so please get back to me as soon as possible if you will assist me in doing this business so that i will update my elder brother at the prison and get more details to give you.
 
I am not going to contact anybody else until i am satisfied that you are not going to be part of this project, please reply quick on willingness to enable me give you further details, since time is in essence.
 
Also I want you to carefully read this websites bellow and understand more about my father and his colleagues.
