From: Master Michael Tazah. Dafur- Republic Of Sudan. Dear Friend, Good day.Please this request should not come to you as a surprise. It is because of what is happening to my family urged me to contact you. We have decided to contact you having in mind that friendship starts from a point in time as friends today were once strangers. My name is Master. Michael Tazah , the second son of Mr. George Tazah of Darfur,Republic of Sudan. At the height of the current political crises in my country, in which the Rebel group of the opposition party in my country fights with the government forces in their bid to take over the government of our country., my father and my elder brother were brutally slained to a painful death on the 6th of July 2006, in their struggle to protect some civilians who ran to take refuge in our house and since then, life has not been the same for our family. My father, during his life on earth was a prominent business man who trades on Diamond and Gold from African countries and exports to other countries. He publicly criticized the crude policies and crime against humanity on the civilians by the Rebel Forces, in which they amputate young boys and girls for their failure to fight .I therefore decided to move my mother and younger sister to Central African Republic, for refuge . My Father, before his death, deposited the sum of $6.500 000 million with a Finance Company in the Republic of Togo where he buys most of these Gold and Diamond. In view of this, and as the only surviving son of my father l decided to contact you for your help in accommodating this fund for our family in your country .Myself and my mother will ensure that the Fund is moved safely to your country , with the assistance of the Finance Company in Republic of Togo. Now this is what we actually want you to do for us; 1. We humbly solicit for your sincere assistance to help us accommodate this fund in your country,untill l join you first since our country is not safe again for any Investment. 2. We want you to be presented to this Finance Company as the person we contacted to assist my family to accommodate this fund in your country . 3.To finally assist my family in managing this fund in any lucrative field in your country for at least three years after l must have joined you to start a new life. Please,we hope you will be a very honest and reliable person to deal with, and also grant and view this very request with favor and much understanding of our unexpected bad situation presently.Please we need your urgent response and include your private phone number please.Thank you and Remain blessed.
