Dear friend,
I write to solicit your assistance in a project of mutual benefit and regret any inconveniences 
contacting you this way with my proposal. I am Lamin Kebba, former Head of Accounts Department at 
the Diamond Mining Company of Sierra Leone.

I and my partners (two others) are in urgent need of a foreign associate to work with us to 
facilitate the transfer of a large sum of money which we intend to invest into profitable areas of 
business in your country. The funds currently secured with a security company is legitimate money 
rightfully belonging to me and my partners, which was earned from private diamond business deals 
during our time as top officials at the Diamond Mining Company of Sierra Leone. Due to unstable 
political and economic environments in Africa, it is not quite
safe investing ones financial future in this part of the world. 

Weare currently living in Banjul capital city of The Gambia and in collaboration with some top 
officials of the Central Bank of West Africa have concluded arrangements for the transfer. The 
money involved
iseighteen million five hundred thousand US Dollars. However, as a result of the regulations here, 
we cannot transfer the funds to your country without having an associate there.

I am writing to know if you could be our overseas associate to handle the transaction privately at 
your end, whereby the funds shall be transferred through your bank account, for mutual benefits. 
All aspects of the transaction will be done legitimately from here via the banking process. We 
propose your commission shall be 20 per cent of the total money been transferred, in view of the 
importance your role as our overseas partners will be, without which we cannot transfer the funds. 
Please consider this proposal seriously and handle with utmost
confidentiality the information I have provided you with here. If you are in a position to assist, 
then get back to me immediately so I can give you details. If you cannot help us, do not respond 
and I apologize for taking your time.
