A bdul Khalid Zantua camp, Khartoum E- mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Dear Sir/Ma, CONFIDENTIAL My name is Abdul Khalid, a Sudanese national. I succeeded the late leader of the Janjaweed Militia sponsored by President Omar Al-Bashir to contend and roll back rival Islamic Militants backed by the Opposition Leaders fighting for separate Independent State in South-West Sudan ( Darfur ). Lately, our sponsor and leaders of the Opposition Revolutionary Front agreed with the African leaders` call for withdrawal of factional Islamic Militant groups in the conflict and signed a memorandum of understanding with UN Envoy on the deployment of twenty-six thousand strong African Union and UN joint peace keeping force in Darfur, to restore peace and order in the crisis-ridden Sub-Saharan African region. Following the success of this truce that saw the withdrawal of our Armed group, I met with Ali Yussuf, the combat external support coordinator and after deliberating on our expenditure from the presidentâs sponsorship vote for mercenary support services in the five years old civil strife, resolved to fleece the remaining 11 million US dollar left with a fiduciary agent and defect to America with our families. Now my aim in writing to you is to solicit the cooperation of any trustworthy foreigner we can present as a representative of an insurance Brokerage firm so that the money will be released to him or her as guaranteed pensionâs fund for injured mercenaries with a view to sharing the money to our mutual benefit. I and my colleagues have decided that the money will be disbursed as follows- 30% net amount of the unspent 11 million US dollars will go to the foreigner, i.e. after deducting the miscellaneous expenses it costs to get the funds released to you., 20% will be set aside for purchase of property anywhere in the US which my colleague and i will use as a place of abode. We shall give you Power of Attorney to keep the remaining 50% for us in a fixed deposit account ,until we are ready for the planned exodus. In addition, you will be entitled to 20% commission on any interest that will accrue from the fixed deposit. All the necessary documents from the office of President Omarâs special aide in charge of our groupâs welfare will be provided by the combat external support coordinator to back up the request for the release of the funds from the fiduciary agent in Benin Republic . Forward to me your full name, contact address, phone number or fax number to enable us use the information to arrange insurance policy coverage that will guarantee the release of the funds and cover up the fleece. Thanks, Regards El-Hajj Abdul Khalid
