Dear Friend, It is with heart full of hope that I write to seek your candid help. I am. Mrs. Doreen Kabila. a woman of 42 years old resident in Democratic Republic of Congo over 25 years ago. I am the 6th wife of the Late Congo President, Laurent Kabila who was assassinated few years ago. You may be surprise to receive my letter, however, I got your contact from my private search on the internet and decided to contact you for confidential business. Since the death of my husband, president Laurent Kabila, there has been incessant hostilities spanning in the family over his 'will. My only son Magnus Kabila. And I have been marginalized by other wives and his first son Joseph Kabila who succeeded him as the new president of Democratic Republic of Congo. Perhaps because of my closeness with my late husband as his last and youngest wife or because I am a foreigner. However, before the death of my husband, Laurent Kabila he deposited the sum of $40.300,000.00 (Forty Million Three Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)in my name in a bank abroad. whose name is withheld for now until we open communication. I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your account for safe keeping. I promise to give you 20% at the end of the transaction. Observe carefully no risk inherent, so, I urge you not to underestimate this vision. My only son Magnus and I shall come over immediately the finacial institution the money to your account to meet with you in your country. As soon as I receive your consent, relevant documents will be prepared in your favour authenticating you as the beneficiary of the funds I look forward for your quick response, to my alternative email; (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more detail information. Best regards, Mrs. Doreen Kabila.
