Mrs. Rebecca Garang 25, smith street, Darfur Southern Sudan Sudan. A Widow’s Desperate Cry for Help. Dear sir/madam, This message may come to you as a surprise, but be assured it is in good faith from a widow in need. I am MRS. REBECCA GARANG the wife of late vice president of SUDAN, DR JOHN GARANG who happens to be the former rebel leader of THE SUDAN PEOPLEC LIBERATION MOVEMENT (SPLM). My husband died on Saturday 30th of July 2005 on a sabotaged helicopter crash just three weeks after his inauguration on the 9th of July in our capital (KHARTOUM may his gentle soul rest in peace. I got your contact through SOUTHN AFRICAN BUSINESS NETWORK though I did not disclose the nature of the business to them during the process of searching for a reliable individual/company who can assist my family in transferring the sum ofUS$22 Million (Twenty Two Million United States Dollars only in a private or company account overseas for safe keeping/investment hence I decide to write you. Originally the money was mapped out to procure arms and ammunitions for the SPLM military wing and my husband was solely in charge of organizing this purchase. Unfortunately, as the news of the peace agreement breached my husband while he was still in South Africa to make the arms procurement, he used the opportunity to divert this money for our family future use. He was fortunate to be in South Africa when the news came and he deposited this money in a sealed consignment (CASH) as a family valuable for security reasons in a sealed metal box containing the fund with a security company in South Africa. After depositing the money he came back and notified the and my son (JEFFERY MABIOR GARANG) about the money ,he also handed over the documents to us before he was inaugurated along with other top SPLM officials, the cabinet of the incumbent president OMAR AL BASHIR has denied any government involvement in masterminding the death of my beloved husband. As a family we have agreed to offer you 20% of the total sum of money for your assistance 5% has been mapped out for both local and international expenses that will be incurred by both of us in the course of this transfer and the remaining 75%will be for my family investment in your country through your advice. You have to understand that continuous existence of my family depends on this fund. That is why I have taken the responsibility of making this initial contact for my family. Therefore on acceptance of this proposal you can contact my son JEFFERY MABIOR GARANG who is currently residing bin south Africa as a political asylum his direct line 27 8 27 79 738 7317 or email firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com for more details on this transaction. Every plan concerning this transaction has been completed. I am assuring you that this transaction is 100% risk free but requires absolute trust and confidentiality. Yours faithfully MRS REBECCA GARANG For the family
