Dear Sir/Madam, Compliments of the day. I know this massage might come to you as a surprise since you do not know me before neither do I know you . I got your contact from the world information network online (WINO), and I want to make this appeal to you with the understanding that any facts or opinions expressed by me are given in confidence and solely for your personal information and use only. My name is Mr Mbombo Bakajika, born on the 5th day of September 1979 in Kananga Democratic Republic of Congo to a Christian mother Mrs Roseline Bakajika now late, and a Muslim father Alhaji Dr Omam Abdulaziz Bakajika who unfortunately died last November while serving dead life sentence in Congo maximum prison. As the former minister of petroleum and energy, my father was accused of conniving with the former Late President Mobutu Seseseko to defraud the countrys treasury of millions of dollars during his tenure. Before his arrest, detention and final sentence some years ago, he confided in me as the only son about the existence of $455.300.000m (Four hundred and Fifty Five million, three hundred thousand dollars), in his foreign account in Europe which he deposited through diplomatic means with a Financial Firm as belonging to his foriegn partner for security reasons to secure the feature of the family incase of any eventualities. As a young man then, my father's stories never meant any sense to me until recently. I am currently been declared wanted by the present government as they want to use me to retrieve the funds from Europe and repatriate it back to Congo. Now I have realised what my father told me some years back, so I had to escape through the west African coastal waterlines to the Gambia for safety where I currently reside. Having just graduated from the University with little or no knowledge in any form of business,investment or fund management , I am soliciting and seeking in confidence a God fearing and reliable foreign individual or company who could be of assistance to retrieve the fund on my behalf from the financial firm into his private bank account The management of the financial institution in Europe is ready to welcome any foreigner who has the correct information/documents and an authority letter endorse by me before attending to you, hence my lawyer will have to interogate you for the safety of my money. On my lawyer findings the fund can be moved successfully into your private nominated bank account for safekeeping and immediate investment in any where we might desire to secure my future. On the successful completion of the transfer of the fund into your nominated bank account, we shall then arrange for my travel trip from Gambia to your country with my lawyer to meet with you and start a new business life.I am offering you 20% of the total fund on acceptance, which is still negotiable, as I urge you to keep the transaction confidential till its concluded. On the acceptance of my proposal please do reply me to my email address provideded below for the progress of this business because of my security, and do forward to my lawyer a copy of any correspondence as regards for his action, hence my lawyer will be reaching you daily on my behalf. firstname.lastname@example.org Best regards, Mbombo Bakajika. --- avast!
