From: Mr. Moosa Adam Jnr Johannesburg- South Africa. Phone: +27 73 213 5526 Dear Sir/Madam, Good-Day! My name is Mr. Moosa Adam Jnr from the Republic of Sudan residing temporary here in Johannesburg, South Africa as an asylum seeker (Refugee). I know this might be a surprise to you. I got your contact through search online from South African Information Exchange (SAIE). I am the son of Mr. Omar Defala Adam Jnr from Darfur-Sudan. My father was the owner of Omar Sea Food Industry & Omar Farm Land in Darfur Region. When the Government discovered that Darfur region is rich on Oil and Mineral Resources, and the Organization Rebel Movement stepped into Darfur to occupied those areas Oil was discovered and those areas happens to be my father's landed properties. You can view; http://www.humanrightsfirst.org/international_justice/darfur/about /background.asp http://sudanwatch.blogspot.com/2005/04/oil-found-in-south-darfuroil- issues.html Government and the Rebels started fighting over who will inherit the Darfur Region because of the Oil discovered. It was unfortunate that my father was killed on the process by the Rebels in order to inherit the land and all my father's companies were burnt down. Before then my father had moved US$18.5 Million United States Dollars to South Africa for establishment of another branch of his companies. The fund was deposited in a private security & finance company in my name Moosa Adam Jnr as the beneficiary. Upon his return from South Africa he was murdered in cold blood by the Rebel Movement. Now the Rebel Movement turned against the remaining family members of my father and my Mother as old as she is ordered me and my younger sister Amina Adam to leave immediately for South Africa to meet with my family Attorney who assisted my (late) father when the funds were deposited and we left without any delay for Johannesburg, South Africa. South African Monetary Regulations on Refugees does not allow us any rights in view of that, we would appreciate your involvement as our foreign partner in order to move these funds out from here on your name. Would you be interested to assist us in moving this money out from South Africa since our status as asylum seekers (Refugees) does not allow the transfer of the funds in my name, the family will offer you 25% of the total amount, 5% will be mapped out to balance any expenses incurred, while 70% will be for my family and will be invested in your country under your management. We would appreciate your immediate response to this message and call me through the telephone number indicated above any day anytime. Thanking you for your anticipated co-operation in advance. Sincerely yours, Moosa Adam Jnr (For the Family)
