I know that you will be suprised to receive a
letterfrom me but consider this as a request from a
familyin dare need of your assistance. First, I
mustintroduce myself, I am KELVIN DOUGLAS from Angola.
Iam the only son of the late Brigadier RUFUS DOUGLAS.
Iam presently residing in South Africa got your
contactfrom the South African Information Exchange
(SAIE)here in Johannesburg and on behalf of my widowed
mother, Mrs. MARY DOUGLAS.

I decided to solicitforyour assistance to transfer the
sum of US$25Million inherited from my late father
intoyour personal/company account. Before my
father’sdeath, he was a brigadier incharge of arms
andammunition puncher for the Angola armed forces.
In his ‘WILL’, he specifically drew my attention
tothis sum of US$25 Million which hedeposited in a
safe box of a private Security Companyin South Africa.
Infact, my father said in his willand I quote, ‘My
beloved son, I wish to draw yourattention to the sum
of US$25 Million which I deposited in a box of a
private SecurityCompany here in Johannesburg. Incase
of my absencefrom earth caused by death only, you
should solicitfor a foreign patner to transfer this
money out ofSouth Africa for investment purpose.
I deposited the money in your name and it can
beclaimed by you alone with the deposit code.
Yourmother has all the documents. Take good care of
yourmother and two sisters’.We are now living in
SouthAfrica as political asylum seekers and
thefinancial laws of South Africa do not allow
asylumseekers certain financial rights to such huge
amountsof money.
In view of this, I cannot invest this money in
SouthAfrica hence I am asking you to assist me to
transferthis money out of South Africa for
investmentpurposes. For your efforts, I am willing to
give you25% of the total fund, while 5% will be set
aside forlocal and international expenses and 70% will
be keptfor my family and me. Finally, all modalities
on howto transfer this fund will be conveyed to you
once wehave established trust between ourselves.I urge
you toexpedite action on this issue and sincerely hope
thatyour co-operation abilities will see us through.

Best regards,

I know you will be surprise to receive this but please, consider it a request from a young man in serious need of assistance. My name is as above stated and from the Tutsi minority tribe in Congo Democratic Republic, East Central Africa. Your contact information was courtesy of a business journal, here in South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry,

I was a major in charge of arms procurement in the government of the recently assassinated president of the Democratic Republic of Congo, late Laurent Kabila. As you may be aware, his government has been involved in a fierce civil war with the rebel forces known as Movement for the Liberation of Congo (MLC), which is currently led by Jean Pierre Bemba, over the mismanagement and aggravated loot of Congolese treasury.

Sometime in early November 2000, I was delegated to lead two other officers to negotiate for a secrete arms deal in Pretoria, Republic of South Africa. We were provided with a flat sum of Eighteen Million United States Dollars (US$18m). This money was successfully transferred to South Africa through a diplomatic means. We deposited this fund in a vault of a private security firm. The security company does not know the actual content of the box deposited with them as we declared it to be precious metals. This arms deal was nearing completion when on the early hour of January 16th, 2001; I had this phone call from Colonel Edy Kapend, Congolese Chief of Staff, intimating me on the brutal assassination of the president by his personal aide in a palace coup.

In realizing the opportunities presented by this development, I decided to withhold this money instead of returning back to Congo. I filed an application for asylum status and was just granted it. Right now, I am staying in Johannesburg as a refugee but my colleagues left for fear of being accused of sabotaging and conspiring to the president’s assassination.

I have been lying low since then making perfect arrangements to move this money out of South Africa through an international investor who will help me manage this money religiously for investment purposes. In recognition of your personal executive powers and investment opportunities that abound in your country, I sincerely solicit for your assistance in moving this fund into your country via your personal or company bank account for safekeeping pending my immediate arrival for onward investments. My attempt to invest here would jeopardize my chances due to the volatile and sensitive status of the region.

I will intimate you more on this transaction as soon as you give me the assurance and confidence that this money will be safe and secured when transferred into your account. I have concluded to offer you 20% of the total sum for your assistance and 5% will be set aside to cover all expenses to be incurred through the course of this transaction. The remaining 75% will rest for investments, which you will also help me materialize. I have in mind to establish a genuine business relationship with you in the nearest future if you will help me out of this. Kindly contact me on the above direct e-mail address, should this proposal happen to meet your utmost considerations.

May Almighty God Bless you.
