My Dear, how are you today,i hope fine. This letter was borne out of my sincere desire to establish a business/mutual relationship with you. I got your contact through the international trade and commerc(ITC). My name is ABRAHAM SULE the son of late Chief Abraham P Osagie (the formerdeputy minister of finance under the ousted civilian government)who was killed and mutilated by the military junta led by major,General Paul Koroma after overthrowing the elected government of presidentAhmed KabaTijan. The pressure of war drove my mother and I out of Sierra -Leone into exile in Gana where we have been living under political asylum. Sadly, my mother died of hypertension and was buried in Ghana. Befor her death, she handed to me a certificate meant for a secret deposit, which my father made in a security company in Accra - Ghana (West Africa) the deposit that worth US$25,000,000 ( Twenty five million U.S dollars). This was money paid to his corporation by it's overseas customers in the heat of the conflict. He made the deposit in his name with the hope of converting it to his personal use at the end of the war but was killed when the conflict intensified as a result of his opposition to the rebel forces. I have contacted the Security Company to confirm the deposit and to establish ownership. Due to the death of my Mother and the return of peace in Sierra-Leone, I have decided to solicit for the participation of an honest and trustworthy person or company that will assist in acting as my father's partner who jointly signed the agreement for the safe keeping of the money in the security company as African artefact. The security company don't know the content of the consignment, they believe that it is African artefact. As contained in 2 trunk boxes. Unfortunately, My father's partner who would have signed for the release of the consignment died in a plane crash that is why I am looking for your assistance. I cannot do it alone due to my present social status and total ignorance of the business world. I shall also give you 20% of the funds for your assistance to relocate this fund to your country and for re-investment. If you are interested in the above proposal, contact me immediately through my mail for a meeting so that we can meet face to face and discuss in details. You must maintain absolute confidentiality to ensure success. Please indicate your personal phone/fax numbers when replying by email. email@example.com Best Regards ABRAHAM SULE
