From: Franklin Abdul Kabba 117 Namib Place, Pritchard Street Northriding-Pretoria South Africa Telephone: +27-63-0087-243 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Attention: The Director/CEO, PRIVATE BUSINESS PROPOSAL!! With regards to your esteem, I write this proposal and hope it reaches you in good fate. My name is Franklin Abdul Kabba, the son of Johnson Ibrahim Kabba, the former security attachÃ to the late president of Libya-Muammar Gaddafi. I am 24 years old and currently seeking asylum in the Republic of South Africa. I got your contact details from your countryâs trade journal hence I seek your sincere assistance for the transfer of Fifteen Million Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars ($15,550,000.00) into your foreign account for our mutual benefit. Before the crisis in Libya in 2011, my father was sent by Gaddafi to go to South Africa to purchase arms and ammunitions because Russia and United States have failed to sell to them, fortunately the first batch of consignment was shipped to Libya but before the second and final batch was shipped, the rebels had captured and killed Muammar Gaddafi, on hearing the news and the state of turmoil in Libya, my father and I immediately came back to South Africa to cancel the remaining supply and asked for a refund which was swiftly done and I deposited the box of money at a private security and finance company in Pretoria-South Africa for safe keeping on the instruction of my father and I stayed back while my father travelled back to Libya. Unfortunately, since then till now I have not heard from either my father or mother and my only sister who is married to one of Gaddafiâs son is in prison with her husband. Life in South Africa is devastating and a living hell plus the continued xenophobic attacks on foreigners is tormenting me hence I seek to move the fund out of this country for a better life and investment. Knowing that the law in South Africa does not allow asylum seekers to operate any form of banking activity, I wish to seek your help to come and assist me to carry out the movement of this fund from here to your country for our mutual benefit. I have made a very concrete arrangement with a top bank official who has promised to help me with the transfers without any hitch. He has also assured me that this is a 100% risk free activity and I would be very glad that you come to my rescue. Having considered the fact that all works require reward, I have therefore concluded to give you 30% of the total sum for your assistance, while I set aside 5% for any expenses that may occur during the course of this transaction, and I shall keep 65% for myself. Please if you are interested, kindly contact me via email or call me with the above telephone numbers for more details and procedures. Please treat with utmost secret for our safety. Regards, Franklin Abdul Kabba
