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.
