Dear Friend,

Permit me to inform you of my desire to go into business with you. I got
your name and contact on the Internet during my search for a sincere
partner. I prayed and to choose your name among others due to its nature of
estimation and on recommendations given to me as someone honorable and
worthy of confidence whom I can do business with. And, by the
recommendation, I must not hesitate to confide myself to you for this simple
and sincere business.

I am (Joseph Koroma), the only son of the late Makalala. Koroma that my
father was a very rich Businessman dealing on Gold Farmer equipments in
Zimbabwe and also the exporter of gold to Europe and America, the economic
capital of Zimbabwe, my father died in hospital of heart attack. My mother
also died when I was just a baby and since then it was my father who was
taking care of me until his death.

Before the death of my father, in January 2002, in private hospital, he
secretly called me to his bedside and told me that he had the sum of Eleven
million, five hundred thousand United States American dollars (S$11,500,000)
being in a two trunk boxes and he  deposited it  in a security company in
Europe. That he used 
my name as that of his only son.

Then because of this political crisis that started here, it's why I seek a
foreign associate, I am presently in the Europe where I am seeking political
asylum for the security of my life,

Dear friend, I honorably seek your aid in the following manner:

(1) To serve as the guardian of these funds since I am only 24

(2) To make arrangements for me to come to your country to continue my
education and for me to obtain residence papers in your country.

Besides this, sir, I am disposed to offer you 20% of the entire sum as
compensation for your effort to have helped me after the transfer succeeded
of these funds in your account, and I will give you 5% for the other

Moreover, you indicate your options for helping me and I believe that this
transaction could be concluded as soon as you accept to help me. I urgently
await your sure response.
Thanks may God bless you.

Sincerely yours,

Joseph Koroma.
