Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume
Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
Translation from Ghanaian to English
In response to an email I have just received ... which shouts the subject line DO NOT IGNORE at me ... I'm not ignoring but providing you with a translation!
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 don't know what you will think of this secret deal
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.
Will you help me launder 3 million illegal dollars?
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.
We won't be found out
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.
This is how we'll do it
If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 30% of the funds while 70% shall be for me.
But I want most of it back for myself
Kindly forward your response to me immediately
