Dear Friend, Please bear with me for sending this letter to you surprisingly. My name is Mr Nnekwu Ojoh, a young man originally from Liberia in west Africa. Please, i sincerely wish to let you know that this is not the kind of e-mails that you will refer to as "spam" or it's like. i am genuine and i will prove it to you once i hear back from you. My sole purpose of contacting you is for you to assist me in selling in your country or elsewhere of my rough (uncutted) diamonds which weighs 14,220 carats,from (3-45 carats),(3kg gross)on the scale,("H"VS-1 quality), all rough and worths about (US$8Million). I shall map out 10% of the sales proceeds to you for your kind assistance. And 3% will be maped out for any misscelenous expenses that might occur during the process of transfering the diamonds from here to your country. I urgently need to sell my diamonds to acquire funds for my education which have suffered so much and also for the upkeep of my family financially. The diamonds was deposited by my late father in a holding firm here in Dakar-Senegal during the war in my country Liberia. As a result of the death of my father in the hands of the anti government rebels during the war, i and my aged mother have to leave Liberia to a nearby neighbouring West African country Senegal where we are at the moment as refugees. The diamonds is waiting for my order to be transfered as I am the "NEXT OF KIN" to the deposit as it is indicated in all the depositional documents which i can send to you on request. Please indicate your acceptance to this business proposal by sending to me your contact phone and fax numnbers for our verbal communication. Hoping to hear from you soonest. And until then, i remain with the best of my regards to you. God bless. Yours truly Nnekwu Ojoh.
