Dear  Friend,
 It is my honour to request your assistance on this business proposition which if pursued to its 
conclusion will be of inmerse benefit to both of us, this request may seem strange but I hope you 
will view it with all serioussness in appreciation of your esteemed contact received through a 
reliable source and the choice of your country. I wish to introduce myself to you as Mr. Mohammed 
Sanko from Democratic republic of Congo the son of the former leader of Congo, FODAY SANKO, my 
father was the leader of the revolutionary United Front in my country before he was dethroned and 
arrested by president Joseph Kabila who just took over the government. Also there was a grand 
conspiracy to systematically destroy all that is owned by my father, that is why I am seeking your 
immediate assistance.
   Moreso, my mother Mrs Sanko and myself tried and eventually succeeded in securing some of these 
assets, which include a mansion and some physical cash. This is to avoid the present government 
from confiscating his whole property. We left  Congo with the total amount of  fifty five million 
united states dollars only, which we brought to Spain and deposited same sealed with a security 
company as value diplomatic documents belonging to our foreign affiliate.
 After the deposition of the money, we were left with no other option than to run back to my mother 
homeland of Kenya, after my mother was asked to leave Canada, which made the national headlines in 
the news, I came back to Canada inorder to move this money out immidiately to avoid being 
confiscated. I got into Canada through a good contact and applied for a refuggee statues as asylum 
seeker, which is being pending in foreign affairs department of the Canadian government.
  The problem now is that we are looking for a trustworthy partner in a stable economy who can help 
us move the money out of Canada. Due to the stringent financial policy of the current president and 
the Organization Of Africa Unity, it is virtually impossible for me to invest money in Democratic 
Republic of Congo or anywhere in Africa continent. In that case, I want to know if you can help me 
tranfer the funds into your account in your country or elsewhere since time is not on my side. It 
is true that we have neither met nor known each other before, but the imformation I gather on your 
credibility makes me believe that with trust and honestly, we will archieve a huge success in about 
a month. I wish to also leave Canada to your country immidiately the funds goes into your account.
  For your noble assistance and well assurance of safeguarding, once the whole funds come under 
your care, I will offer you  fifteen percent of the total sum, five percent will be set aside for 
any expenses IF ANY that might be incurred by both parties during the transaction, while the 
remaining eighty percent will be used for investment. Also you will be entitled to five percent 
payment from annual turnover in whatever business undertaking you advice us to go into. However, 
this arrangement will only hold for a period of ten consecutive years. This business is completely 
risk free because every arrangement has been for a successful deal.
  I expect your immediate response so that we can conclude this transaction in the very shortest 
time, I wish you also keep this bussiness highly confidential and because I do not want anything to 
happen to this fund. Do contact me via this email, as soon as possible. Thanks 
and God bless.
 Yours faithfully,
Mohammed Sanko.
