                                  REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE

Please I am MR: MAX WILLIAMS. The only son of late chief George
Williams from Sierra Leone. I am writing you in absolute confidence
primarily to seek your assistance to transfer our cash of Twenty Five
million Five Hundred Thousand dollars (US$25.500, 000.00) now in the
custody of a private security company here in South Africa to your
private account pending our arrival to your country.

My late father, chief GEORGE WILLIAMS, a native of mend district in
the Northern Province of Sierra .Leone, was the general Manager of
Sierra Leone mining co-operation (S.L.M.C.) Freetown. According to my
father. This money was the income accrued from mining co-operation
over draft and minor sales. Before the peak of the civil war between
the rebels forces of Major Paul Koroma and the combined forces of
ECOMOG peace keeping operation that almost destroyed my country,
following the forceful removal from power of the Civilian Elected
President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah by the rebels.

My father had already made arrangement for his family, my mother, my
little sister and myself to be evacuated to South Africa with our
personal effects. My father deposited the fund at a private security
company in South Africa for the safe custody until after the war when
he will join us. During the war in my country, and following the
indiscriminate looting of public and Government properties by the
rebel in forces, the Sierra Leone mining coop. was one of the targets
looted and destroyed. My father including other top Government
functionaries were attacked and killed by the rebels in November 2003
because of his relationship with the civilian Government of Ahmed
Tejan Kabbah. As a result of my father death, and with the news of my
uncles involvement in air crash in January, dashed our hope of survival.

 From the above, you will understand that the lives and the future of
my Family depend on this money, as such we will be very grateful if
you can assist us. We are now leaving in South Africa as political
asylum Seekers and financial law of republic of South Africa do not
allow Asylum seekers certain financial right to such huge amount of
money. In view of this, I cannot invest this money in South Africa,
hence my asking you to assist me to transfer this money out of South
Africa to your own personal or Company account
overseas for investment purposes

To transfer this money in your name to your country, to make a good
arrangement for a joint business investment on our behalf in your
country and you, the caretaker. To secure a college for my little
sister and my self in your country to further our education. And to
make arrangement for our travel with you to your country after you
have transferred this fund. Most importantly. The whole documents
issued after deposit in my custody. For your assistance, I beg to
concede 10% of this total amount.

Best regards
