Dear Mr Harry Horsburgh,

Greetings from Nayak Holiday Service,Accra-Ghana to all our valued customers.We greatly appreciate the fact that we are contacting you for the first time. A client by the name, Miss Maryam Osman was here in our office yesterday on the 24th day of October 2005 at 11:23am GMT for traveling enquires to Canada (Manitoba) and we have the name in our data for all visited customers. This morning at about 9:15am, she was her to hand over your informations to us as she claims she will be traveling to you and will be residing with you and you want us to contact you in person.

However, according your girlfriend Miss Maryam Osman, you will want her to come and spend a longer time with you so therefore, we will be securing her, The H1B VISA when she is recgonized as a successful clients(paid applicants).

Here, the H1B VISA, is the primary method for bringing in level foreign employees to Canada and with this type of visa, it enables Canadian employers to hire foreign professionals for a specified period of time which is can enable your partner to work during the stay with you. The H1B program allows workers in specialty occupations to work in Canada for up to a total of six (6) years. One of the things that makes this visa so desirable is that, unlike many other nonimmigrant visa categories, it is a "dual intent" visa. This means that a visa will not be denied simply because a person has intentions to become a permanent resident. The assumption is that if for some reason the permanent residency petition is denied, the person would still have the intention to return home.

Another advantage to the H1B visa category is that the recipient in Canada does not need to demonstrate that there is a shortage of qualified Canadian workers and, consequently, a labor certification process can be avoided. Aside from documenting that the position offered is in a specialty occupation and that the employee has the appropriate credentials for the job, the recipient need only verify that the H1B visa worker is being paid the prevailing wage for the work being performed and that employment of a foreign worker is not harming conditions for immigrant workers and also to the non immigrant. Further more, your girlfriend is going to engage with as the fiancee and we will show a sufficient financial resources of our firm to support your partner to secure her, a Canadian H1B visa.

However, when she came here to our office this morning, she has given us the assurance and with a great concern that she wants us to facilitate her traveling documents to you in Canada Manitoba. But in securing the H1B Visa, it will be within a period of 14 to 18 working days.

Aside from documenting, the position offered is in a specialty and that is Miss Maryam Osman has the appropriate credentials for the travelling. Mr Horsburgh, it was made known to us by your girlfriend Miss Maryam Osman that, you will help in the facilitating of her travel documents. We therefore inform you that, the total cost of her travel from Ghana to you in Canada (Manitoba) would be $2923.23, all charges includes Vat (12.5%). The total breakdown are as follows : Visa processing fee, processing of document to the embassy, Round Trip Ticket Reservation, Travel Insurance,Traveling itenarary,travel and tour charge,30 kilograms luggage weighing and any extra kilos would be taken care of by the client, vaccination and Innuculation card,and Aids Test Confirmation.

If you had listen to BBC news lately you would have heared that Ghana Airways is not at the moment in service due to some circumstances beyond their control. Beside Ghana Airways,we have KLM, LUFTHANSA, AIR ALITALIA, BRITISH AIRWAYS, SWISS AIRLINES ,AMERICAN AIRLINES ETC. We would give particulars of flight she would use, which is under our commodity.The travel itinerary of Miss Maryam Osman would depend on the time of booking the flight. We are assuring you of giving her an ecconomy flight,because her safety is our concern. We are affiliated with organisation that assist us in facilitating all documents in the shortest possible time which has been stated above in the fifth paragraph.

As a matter of fact, we have some list of clients that we are working on their documents for the presentation to the Canadian Embassy before the end of next week, and we would therefore be pleased if we can add her to the list, since we are going to apply for the Tourist Visa and a H1B type of visa for a client and this is the same type of visa your gilffriend seeks. We will therefore be pleased if you will e-mail us your details of informations that is, ( Your Full Name, Address, Fax and Phone Numbers) so we will enter all this informations in the applicants visa form to the embassy since you would be the recipient to welcome her in Canada.

Due to the problems we have faced in the passed with international correspondence, and also since that has ruin the company down and most of our money has been lost.

Less we forget, when she came here this morning to the companies premisses, she brought forward an amount of $620USD as down payment to be used in all documentations covering her travel but we had to turn her off since we will like to hear from you first before we can allow that.
