Dear frend,
I am lawrence ATINGA the only son of late former Director
of finance, CLEMENT R. ATINGA Sierra-Leone diamond and
mining corporation.I must confess my agitation is real and
my words is my bond, in this proposal. My late father
diverted this fund acquired from the over influencing of
price of sales/purchasing of raw materials, now he has
deposited the money with a bank here in Abidjan BY FIXED
DEPOSIT FORM,and he attached a strict clause to the fund
in bracket (PAY AS RECEIVED), where I am residing under
political assylum with my younger sister MARY, my younger
sister who is 18 years old. Now the war in my country is
over with the help of ECOMOG soldiers, the present
government of Sierra Leone has revoked the passport of all
officers who served under the former regime and now ask
countries to expel such person at the same time freeze
their account and confiscate their asset, it is on this
note that I am contacting you, all I needed from you is to
furnish me with your bank particulars:
1) Account name
2) Account number
3) Bank address, telephone and fax number For you to
assist me transfer this money in your private bank
account, the said amount is US$ 6.7 Million. (Six Million
Seven houdren Thousand Dollars)I am compensating you with
12% of the total money amount, now all my hope is banked
on you and I really wants to invest this money in your
country, were their is stability of Government, political
and economic welfare. Honestly I want you to believe that
this transaction is real and never a joke.My late father
Chief Atinga gave me the photocopies of the certificate of
deposit issued to me by the BANK on the date of deposit,
and he called me closer to his bed side before his call to
glory(R.I.P)that i should pray to god first, before
contacting any foreginer and he warned me stricly that i
should avoid afican men with their greedy and evil mind
since this is the only legacy we are inheriting from
him.Sir, this is for you to be clarified because, I do not
expose my self to anybody I see, I believe that you are
able to keep this transaction secret for me because this
money is the hope of my life, it is important. Please call

offered you 12 % of the total money amount, and in case of
any other necessary expenses you might incure during this
transaction inluding your telephone calls.N.B Try and
negotiate for me some profitable blue chip investment
opportunities which is risky free which I can invest with
this money when it is transferred to your account and you
