Caixa Catalunya Avenida Diagonal Barcelona Casp 01 Spain. ATTN: Sir/Madam RE: CREDIT OF $18,000,000.00 INTO YOUR ACCOUNT I am Mrs. Mariella Desiree Kremer, the Controller Electronic Wire Department of Banco (Caixa Catalunya in Spain). By the virtue of my position and authority in the bank, I control the foreign payment Allocations of Foreign depositors, the instruments of Multi-national Corporation and African Governments. The crux of this mail is to intimate you of an existing opportunity to benefit from the ENRON windfall discretely and secretly. As you know, ENRON was the biggest American Energy Company that was worth several billions of dollars in cash and assets. However, it was declared bankrupt in the year 2001 for failure to meet her financial obligations to investors. But before, the bankruptcy declaration was passed against ENRON; my office was able to secure the investment made by one of the African leaders (Late Mobutu Sesesekou) of the Congo Democratic Republic (Zaire). The Late Sesesekou who died in Exile in Morocco in 1998 invested the sum of $18,000,000 (Eighteen Million United Stsates Dollars only) in ENRON through Caixa Catalunya (Barcelona)and placed the management of the investment directly under my office. When he died the investment was not reflected in his will since he died in exile under serious political pressure. When I understood that all the assets of the former African dictator were beingseized by the successive government of The Late Joseph Kabila. I decided to apply to ENRON to withdraw the principal amount of the investment ($18m) and deposited it into Special Trust Account with my bank to avoid being detected by the government. This was completely achieved. Now that ENRON has collapsed all the traces of the investment have been wiped out from our system and theirs. Since there is neither a record of the previous investments in ENRON nor the source of the funds, the sum of $18m has continued to remain in the Caixa Catalunya here in Spain as a free, floating and redundant fund. To avoid undue exposure of the availability of the sum, I have masterminded its movement into a special vault within the bank where clean and approved funds awaiting to be paid are usually deposited. Now I am soliciting your partnership in transferring the ownership of these funds to your organization. The modalities are that I willpresent you or your organization as the original beneficiary of the investmentfunds. This move is necessary because as long as the funds remain in Caixa Catalunya, nobody will benefit from it. It will be anothercase of lost investment in the world's prime banks. Besides our bank has a policy of repatriating unclaimed funds to African foundation in USA where it is in turn used to ship arms and ammunition to Africa to fund wars which further destabilize the fragile continent. I personally consider this practice immoral and oppressive. This has actually motivated me to seek an alternative means of securing the funds under the name and investment of another reputable company. The nature of your involvement will entail presenting your company or yourself as the beneficiary of these funds through an investment made by the late dictator in your company brokered by Caixa Catalunya –Barcelona Spain. The details of how you will go about this will be given to you as soon as I receive your favourable response. In the mean time, I have concluded on a rewarding share of the entire sum as your commission for your assistance. I have arranged the necessary underground works to ensure that the funds is credited into your bank account within 14 banking days from the day we receive your favourable response. Kindly contact me by my e-mail (email@example.com) address to enable me furnish you with the details. Respond urgently. Yours sincerely, Mrs. Mariella Desiree Kremer.
