Dear Sir Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus! I am Mrs. Joy Garang the widow of late Dr. John Garang who was until his death the vice president of Sudan in Africa. In brief, my late husband was a strong opposition to the incumbent government and for over 22yrs he indefatigably fought for the independence and liberation of the marginalized South Sudan people until he was appointed the vice president on the 9th of July 2005 following the cease fire agreement that was signed on the 9th of January 2005. His appointment was largely welcomed by the International Community and was seen as an avenue to quench the decades of civil war in Sudan. He died on the 31st of July 2005 following a helicopter crash alongside with 12 others just 22days after his appointment as the vice president. What led to the helicopter crash is still unclear but I know that my husband was the target. I want to confide and entrust to you a very important matter and do kindly request that you give this matter the urgency required to help me and my five children who are currently placed on a house arrest by this wicked regime, who have confiscated all my late husband properties and bank accounts.My husband made a deposit with the London Financial Credit Union in the UK , i want you to stand as a trustee to this fund and assist me in claiming it from the bank since i am not allowed to travel or transact business at the moment, moreover i need a foriegn who can manage these funds abroad for my children until we get out of this helpless situation. You have absolutely nothing to worry about, i have the deposit certificate and the Account details which you can access online . you for more confidential explanations. Yours sincerely Mrs. Joy Garang Juba South Sudan EMAIL:email@example.com EMAIL:firstname.lastname@example.org EMAIL:email@example.com
