Attention: M/Director First I introduce myself as Mr. ABDULLKAREM M. MAHMOUD the foreign Service manager to LIBERTY SEGUROS BARCELONA ESPAŅA. I have resolved to contact you through this medium based on business proposal that will be of mutual benefit to both of us. I want a trustworthy and established person that understands investment ethic for entering into a life time profitable joint partnership investment and also co-operation with confidence and trust that you will keep the contents secret and divulged to any third party. To be explicit and straight to the point. Some time early 1997, a reputable client of ours deposited a consignment in our company's vault for safe keeping. And since then our client has failed to come forward to claim his consignment, which has accumulated a considerable amount of money in demurrage, Consequently as the foreign operation manager I desided to contact this client to redeem the demurrage which his consignment had accumulated I discovered that our client was the former president of the Federal Republic of Zaire, who died of illness after he was de-throwed in the same year the consignment was entrusted into our care.Since the death of our client President Mobutu Seseseko, 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 box that our client deposited in our vault. And to my surprise I discovered that the box that was registered as DIPLOMATIC ACHIVAL ANTIGUES by our client contained a considerable amount of money in United States Dollars . 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 head of state, you can see to this website (http://partners.nytimes.com/library/world/090897obit-mobutu.html). 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 noble assistance to assist me in transferring this box out of spain for immediate investment with your assistance. Your mode of compesation will be discurse as soon as I hear from you. Upon my receipt of your reply confirming your willingness to act with me in this transaction, I will immediately arrange and transfer all the rights of ownership of this consignment to your name to facilitate your easy clearance of the box and immediately transfer the box of funds to your country or you come for the claim here in spain.You have nothing to worry about, as I will be there to assist you in anyway necessary with all proper documentation. This transaction is risk free. Please maintain absolute confidentiality on this matter. You can contact me through this tel: +34-656-898-475 to enable start the preparation to transfer the consignment to you. e-mail:email@example.com Best Regards, ABDULLKAREM M. MAHMOUD.
