FROM: TIMOTHY ADAM CAMBRIDGE HOUSE #I3 RANDPARK RIDGE, JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA TEL:+27-73-30007921 Attn: SIR CONFIDENTIAL STRICKLY I know you will be surprised to read a letter from me, but please consider this as a letter from a family in dire need of assistance. I am Mr. TIMOTHY ADAM, the son of the late Brigadier Arnold Adam of Angola. I am writing to you from South Africa. I got your contact from world online in e-mail data service here in South Africa in my search for a reliable individual company who can assist me in transferring a reasonable sum of money abroad to a company or private account. I on behalf of my late father and my only sister, Gene, Decided to solicit for your assistance to transfer the sum of $US25M (Twenty Five Million United States Dollars) deposited by my late father in a private Security Company in South Africa. Before the death of my father he was a brigadier in charge or arms and ammunition procurement for the Angolan Army. In his will be specially drew my attention to the above-mentioned sum, which he had deposited in the safe box in a private Security Company in Johannesburg, South Africa. In fact he said and I quote “ My beloved son, I wish to draw to your attention to the sum of US$25 Million. I deposited the box containing the fund in a security and Finance Company in Johannesburg, South Africa. During the war I was very dedicated and committed to winning the war against the rebels until recently when I found out that some senior arm officials and Government functionaries were busy helping themselves with Government funds and properties and sending them to foreign countries. Due to this, when I and a former special advisor to the President were assigned by the President (Jose Eduardo dos Santos) to purchase arms in South Africa, we saw this as an opportunity to divert this money for our personal use, when we divided the money, my share was US$25 Million. I did that in case of my absence due to death so that you, silvester, your sisters Gene wouldn’t suffer. Do not disappoint me bye for now and God bless.
Thanks and God bless=2E Regards=2C Mr=2E TIMOTHY ADAM =28for the family CONFIDENTIAL STRICKLY
