From: Evangelist Dube Edward Dear Sir/Madam, I am Evangelist Dube Edward,the first son of late Dr. John Dube. I am a citizen of Swaziland. My late father was the managing director of Aluminum Company in Swaziland but unfortunately he died in the year 2002 after a protracted illness. Due to poor management of the company in my country and for the fact that I am so dedicated to church activities realized that I am too young to manage a large company of that type and most of the director have already began to divert the net profit being generated from the company. I therefore arrange with my father’s lawyer and sold the entire company to Mr. Alan Foster from Poland at the price of US $10,600,000,(Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand Dollars). Due to constant pressure from some of my relatives and also fear of likely attack on my family to hijack the fund, I arrange with my mother to transfer the fund to one of the security and finance company in South Africa, where I am currently staying with my mother and two other sisters. However, I am into pastoral activities now and most of my time is been dedicated to church activities. At the moment, we want to transfer the fund to overseas account for investment because there is no good investment atmosphere here in South Africa. I therefore need your assistance to enable me transfer the fund into your private/companies account overseas so that we can relocate to plan for the investment of the fund through your personal assistance. I need your assistance in investing the fund because I have little experience of investment/management of the fund. It is also my plan that after the successful transfer of the fund into your overseas account, I will first relocate my mother and other 2 sisters to stay with you, while I will complete my theological school. What I need from you is honest and sincerity because this fund is my life and the life of my family. If can assist us in this transaction, I will give you 30% of the total fund for your assistance, while 70% will remain in your account for (2 years) to enable me complete my school and join my family to plan for the investments. Please, be assured that this transaction is 100% risk free. I await your soonest response. Regards and God bless. Evangelist Dube Edward,
