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 hereby believing that your assistance will be of 
profitable advantage to us.

I am Mr. David Makeba, formerly of unita;and a senior cabinet member 
under the military leadership of gen. jonas savimbi. my comrades and is 
ensing the weakness of our liberation movement and loss of confidence 
in facing a better trained and 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. Further, detailed 
information would be supplied to you for verification if you are 
interested and respond favorably.

This was actually made possible under an arrangement.i am planning to 
relocate to your country where i can be better established with my 
money and angola however not being 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.i also want you to acknowledge the fact that i am a 
career public ervant who by virtue of the war in angola was opportune 
to posses the amount of money with me.

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. be also assured that you stand no risk of any kind 
as it was an event during a war situation and i look forward to your 
urgent response .please kindly respond if interested or not through the 
email address:

Thanking you for the needed cooperation.
Best regard,
Mr. David Makeba
