If you telecommute, you may have to send copies of your identification to your new employer. Hopefully before you take this step, you’ve done the research, been interviewed, and have a firm offer of employment or a contact. If someone like “Andrew Okai” asks for you identification so you can split ill-gotten gains, don’t do it. This type of offer is not legitimate in any way and it’s illegal.

RE: INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP PROPOSAL.
Andrew Okai is my name. the Executive Officer of Standard Chartered Bank Ghana,Ltd.
This year, I have been able to offset most Overdue
contract sums owed by the Government of Ghana to Foreign contractors in
2013-2014 . In the process of these payments, I discovered through investigation
that my late colleague who passed on May 2015 secretly secured ($USD 15,000,000.00) in the bank (ESCROW ACCOUNT) but was unable to conclude the transaction before his sudden death. The fund originated from the balance of over-invoiced sum and
inflated government contracts of which the principal sum had been paid to foreign contractors that executed their Oil contracts here in Ghana in 2013-2014
This fund is now floating in a suspense account of our bank escrow and will be moved by telegraphic transfer within 48
hours of perfection of your account coordinates.
I have concluded all necessary Arrangements for the TRANSFER of the money to an account .Contacting you on this became imperative to the fact that, the transfer cannot be effected without a second party account and receiving Bank Code and SWIFT numbers.
Therefore, what is required from you is Trust, Confidentiality and Honesty. No
travel is required, I will forward an account where my share will be further transferred to when the funds reaches your bank in your country. At the moment i can only give information that are reasonable to assist this business without failure of any nature. Our sharing terms goes like this (60% to me, 40% to you)
