Mr. Madiba Tutu
Johannesburg, South Africa.
Dear respected friend,
How are you and your business? I am very interested in doing business 
in your country, therefore i would like to seek your assistance and 
help. I am particularly interested in properties but your advice on 
other areas of private sector would be appreciated.
I got your contact at the business bureau office here in South Africa 
and i am of the belief that you would be of great help in guiding me to 
a successful exploration of the investment potential of your country 
which guarantee good capital returns and financial security. As a 
result of this, i can take you in confidence basically because of the 
source of my fund, while believing that your assistance will be of 
profitable advantage to us.
I am Mr. Madiba Tutu,  formerly of UNITA and a senior cabinet member 
under the military leadership of Gen. Jonas Savimbi. My comrades and 
i,  envisaging the weakness of our liberation movement and loss of 
confidence in facing a better trained and well equipped federal 
government army towards the last one year, decided to escape with some 
fund under our care which we deposited with a fund fiduciary manager. 
More detailed information would be supplied to you for verification if 
you respond favourably.
I  am planning to relocate to your country where i can be better 
established with my money,  as Angola is not  safe for me because of 
its closeness to South Africa. I would therefore like you to assist me 
in every possible way in securing this fund to your country since i 
intend to live and run my business there. The amount involved is, 
fourteen million five hundred thousand united states dollar {$14.5m}. 
Sir, i would like you to understand my modesty in imploring for your 
help which is basically due to my lack of business experience and 
exposure in your country. 

This fund being the basis of my future and business ambition, your 
friendship, assistance and advice will be immensely appreciated while 
your effort will be rewarded by parting with some percentage of the 
total fund to you. You should be also assured that you stand no risk of 
any kind as it was an event accruing from a war situation and i look 
forward to your urgent response. Please kindly respond if you are 
interested through my  email address:
Thanks in advance  for your cooperation.

Best regards,
Mr. Madiba  Tutu.
