I feel quite safe dealing with you in this mutual beneficial
transaction. Though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I
choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest,
surest and most secured medium of communication. However, this
correspondence is purely private, and it should be treated as such. I
also guarantee you that this deal is hitch free. I am Mrs Patricia Ann from New York.I work at the New York University as a lecturer. My dad was one of the former president of Zaire presently known as Democratic Republic of the Congo. His name is Sese Seko Mobutu who die in morocco in 1997.
There is a company owning my dad in London when he was in power about US$60Million and they are willing to pay now with interest and the total amount of everything now is about US$67Million.Presently, this fund has just been deposited with Barclays Bank UK LONDON. the company just wrote me a notification letter to come forward for the release of this fund. i have been given authority over this fund ever since and i dont want this fund to be traced to me because of my position at the New York University 'WAR AGAINST CORRUPTION IN AFRICA' and it might jeopadise my office and as well affect me, hence i contact you for your assistance. i am looking for a representative from a reliable country who is trust worthy and God fearing person who can work with me to get this fund out and i will be willing to give you 30% for your candid assist.
My attorney in Washington DC, USA is already aware about the whole process and he will be making all necessary documents for claim. Pls i want you to maintain the absolute secrecy and confidential that is required in this mutual transaction for the safety of my family and my attorney in WA.Let me know if you are interested so that we can proceed to the next agenda.
Have a nice day and God bless. I would appreciate a reply through my private email address: email@example.com
