Dear Sir/Madan ,
My name is Mrs Finda Kula, a citizen of Sierra-Leone and the wife of late Mr.Tamba Kula, who before his death was the manager of Sierra-Leone Goldand Diamond Corporation ( SGDC). I hope you are aware of the war going on in my country for the past five years now. It was in one of the attacks bythe rebels that led to the killing of my dear husband leaving me and the six children as the only survivors, because we went to a funeral when weheard of the killing of my husband so we felt unsafe in the country and managed to escape Sierra-Leone through the help of a fisherman who operates a fishing vessel through and fro a coastal river in Sierra Leone,
and finally got into London (UK) through the help of another good Samaritan.
Please, with us is TEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS (USD10.5M) presently deposited in a Security and Finance Company in Africa. My aim ofcontacting you is to seek your able assistance as a front in transferring this fund abroad in your account, then as a business developer, you will also help us to wisely invest the money in areas you deem lucrative and
finally obtain a residential permit for us to stay comfortably there in your country.
Please for God's sake, be merciful to us and help us transfer this money into your account abroad. We agree to give you 20% for your help to see this done for us. I will send you the proof of this transaction as soon as we favorably hear from you. And please we implore you to treat this transaction with all secrecy and confidentiality for security reasons.
This is because my late husband secretly deposited the funds in a coded account with the Security and Finance Company in the West African region.
Please Contact me through this Email email@example.com
Mrs Finda Kula and Family.
