FROM:MR. ALEX NDEBA DIRECTOR,DELIVERY/OPERATIONS TRANSWORLD SECURITIES. Tmail; email@example.com SOUTH AFRICA./ASIA . Dear sir/ madam I do foresee the surprise this letter may bring you as it comes from a total stranger must also apologize for contacting you in this manner but due to the nature of the proposal I am about to make I consider E-mail the safest means of contacting you. However,it is my decision to solicit your understanding and co-operation in this transaction, as it will be beneficial to the both of us involved. Well,first and foremost my name is MR. ALEX NDEBA,I am a South African and the Director of Delivery/Operations of Transworld securities here in South Africa. Our firm is a security company of high repute with years of outstanding service to the people of Africa especially top government officials and military leaders here in Africa. I have resolved to contact you through this medium based on business proposal that will be of mutual benefit to both of us. I have not discussed this transaction with anybody because of it's nature. To be explicit and straight to the point. Some time in early 2000,a reputable client of ours deposited a consignment in our company's vault for safekeeping. And since then this client of ours has failed to come forward to claim his consignment, which has accumulated a considerable amount of money in demurrage. Consequently, in our bide to contact this client to redeem the demurrage which his consignment had accumulated I discovered that our client was the former first vice-president of the Federal Republic of Southern Sudan,whose death was as a result of helicopter crash after he was dethroned before his death the consignment was entrusted into our care. Since the death of our client vice-president Dr John Garang, none of his benefactors has come forward to claim the consignment with us, which means that non of his relatives or aids had any knowledge of this consignment. Hence out of curiosity I decided to secretly open the two boxes that our client deposited in our vault. And to my surprise I discovered that the two boxes that were registered as treasure by our client actually contained a considerable amount of money in United States Dollars amounting to about USD$10.5 Million, Since this development I have been nursing plans secretly. I also found out from enquiries and the foreign media that our late client siphoned a lot of money from his country while he was in office as vice-president of the country. It is my conviction that the consignment in our vault was part of the money that our client siphoned and now that he is dead there is no trace to this money in our care. I am now soliciting your assistance in transferring this money out of South Africa to your country for immediate investment with your assistance. I have also decided that you will generously be entitled to some percentage of the total amount,which we will discuss as soon as you accept my offer. Upon my receipt of your reply confirming your willingness to assist me of this transaction, I will immediately arrange and put all machinaries in motion to facilitate the easy clearance and transfer of the complete funds to your country for onwards investment with your assistance. This transaction is 100% risk free.You have nothing whatsoever to fear because I have planed out the strategy to best effect a smooth transaction. Please I'll urge you to maintain absolute confidentiality on this matter. I await your most prompt response. Regards
