From: Patrick Udem January 2010 Bangkok. My name is Patrick Udem from the Republic of Sierra Leone, l am the first son of Mr. Silver Udem who was a top manager in the Central Bank of Sierra Leone. My late father was kidnapped by the rebels on the day they attacked our capital city ( Freetown) looting and destroying government offices, although he was later rescued by the soldiers, he latter died of injuries he sustained. Due to his position, he was able to secure some reasonable amount of money ( $11.5m) which he deposited in a private financial house in Thailand after visited Thailand on tourist. The officials of the private financial house have no idea that this is money because my late father registered the consignment box as a (family Diamond). Now after his burial, my family decided to leave the country for two reasons; one for our safety and also to find a way of properly securing this funds and then investing it in viable business ventures, hence l am writing you. I will therefore like you to help me in every possible way in securing this money in your country; you will also assist me in finding a good business I will invest on. In view of your participation, I have made up my mind to give you 20% of this money. You will be required to come to Bangkok for a meeting with me if possible or we find the best alternative by which these fund can be secure without any problem ; this will give us the chance to know each other better before this money will be moved to your country. if you have any question do not hesitate to include same in your reply. You will do well to reply this mail to email@example.com Best regards Patrick Udem.
