Hello Dear , I got your contact from the Ecowas Infomation Center here in SENEGAL. My sources of your contact gave me the courage and confidence to contact you. It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I intend to establish in your country, though I have not met with you before and you may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally but I believe one has to risk confiding in success sometimes in life. I am Miss RITA NGOYA , the only daughter of MR.FRANK NGOYA , the director or the ANGOLAN diamond mine,and a wealthy business man who was murdered in the land mine dispute in ANGOLA a few year ago, which i have no doubt you may be aware if you listen to either BBC or CNN. Some documented pictures of this incident, you can view at <http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/1082425.stm> <http://www.american.edu/ted/ice/angola.htm> <http://www.iss.co.za/Pubs/BOOKS/ANGOLA.HTML> I got your contact through network on line hence decided to write to you for a business proposal that will benefit both of us. Before the death of my father, he deposit the sum of US $8, 500,000(EIGHT MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS) in one of the Private Security Companies here in DAKAR SENEGAL as if he foresaw the looming danger in ANGOLA. This money was deposited in a box as gemstones to avoid much demur rage from the Security Company.This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines, chemicals for the farms and establishment of new farm in Swaziland. This land mine problem came when Dr.SAVIMBI the Rebel leader UNITA collected the land mine from miners , which wholly affected the rich white miners and some few black miners. This resulted in killings and REBEL attack actions by the UNITA rebels in ANGOLA,In fact a lot of people were killed because of this land mine problem by rebels of unita,of which my father was one of the victims. They murdered my lovely dad and mum at about 10.45am in our white color's E Class Mercedes Benz and born our houses. I was the only person left because i was in the at a friends place during the time of this incident in which i later flew to The Republic of Senegal with tears, where my father's friend arranged for me to stay in the united nation high commission for refugees camp for a Security reasons. This money he intended for 2002 politics and the opening of the new hectares of farm land in Shiselweni Village near Umbuluzi in Swaziland which my father negotiated to buy with the help of the Swaziland Monarch King Suboza Mswati (lll) as well as buying tractors for the new site which my father had made all the enquiries from NEW LONDON TRACTORS & EQUIPMENT ROUTE. It is against this background that i am currently here in Senegal and decided to transfer my fatherís money to a foreign country since the law of Senegal prohibits refugees from opening any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zones of Senegal. As the only child of my father, I am saddled with responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred into without the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking everything. All I seek for is an honest businessman or woman, whom I can entrust my future ; I must also let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free. If you accept to assist me, we will embark without further delay on the next step for the transfer of this money to your Private account in your country, based on the arrangements I have made so far with the security company which the money is been saved. This money I intend to use for an investment and growth in your country. I have two options for you; firstly, you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your account for this transaction. Or you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your country. Whichever options you want feel free to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of expenses we might incur in the process of this transaction. If you do not prefer a partnership, I am willing to give 25% of the money while the remaining 70% remains for me. If you are really capable and willing to assist me please email me with this email address above email@example.com While reply please, i need your private telephone number and fax number for an easy and effective communication. Finally, please treat this matter as urgent as possible. I am in a daring need to leave this country since I cannot invest the amount here in Senegal due to their restrictions on Asylum Seekers. But if on the contrary you cannot assist, please keep my having contacted you confidential.Thank you in anticipation of your kind understanding and immediate response. BEST REGARDS, MISS RITA NGOYA
