Dear Friend,

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. We are currently living in Banjul capital city of The Gambia and in collaboration with some 
top officials of the Central Bank of Gambia have concluded arrangements for the transfer.The money 
involved is eighteen 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

Please, give me your response immediately by return mail.
