From:Prince Davies Phiri.
South Africa.


Dear Sir/madam,

I am Prince Davies Phiri the son of Prince Oupa Sankoh Phiri, the prince of the Old Kingdom of 
My great grandfather passed kingship to the present King Letsi III. My family however is still part 
of the kings  council 
of elders, an integral part of the Kingís administrative body in my country.

Because of the civil war in my country that resulted from a military coup attempt by the opposition 
party in 1998, my father was commissioned as 
a member of clandestine delegates that convened in the Republic of South Africa for peace talks. 
But when the negotiations failed, my father 
decided to reside in South Africa with the family until his untimely death early this year.

Following the death of my father, the family has been divided against  itself 
every member of the family including my step mother and uncles fighting to 
get a chunk of my fatherís accumulated wealth. However, before my fatherís 
demise he left a certain amount of money in the vault of a Security company 
based in South Africa with my name and the other family members had no knowledge of it.

Because of security reasons, I can not invest this money in South Africa 
hence my intentions to relocate to your country. It is in view of this 
that I decided to solicit for your assistance to scout for areas of viable 
foreign investment in your country. If possible, I am willing to go 
into joint venture business with you and your company. If everything goes 
well, I will be willing to invest up to 15 million United States dollars in the 

Bear in mind that this transaction is time sensitive and must be pursued 
immediately. Therefore your earliest response will be highly appreciated. 
Contact me on the above email address.

Thanks and best regards,

Prince  Davies Phiri.
