Dear Sir,

                              PRIVATE AND HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL

Greeting! I know you will be surprised to read from me, but please this letter is a request from a family in dire need of assistance. I am Mr. Mohammed Williams from Angola.The first and the only son of Brigadier Chanza Williams communicating to you from Johannesburg, South Africa.

I got your address from my random search at the net. And, I on behalf of my widowed mother Mrs. Bridget Williams decided to solicit for your assistance to transfer the sum of US$35.8 Million (Thirty five Million Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), which he deposited in a safe box to private security company in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In fact, my father said, and I quote: “My son, I wish to draw your attention to US$35.8 Million (Thirty five Million Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). I deposited the box containing the fund in a security company in Johannesburg, South Africa as valuables. During the war, I was very committed and dedicated in winning the war against the rebels, until I found out that the senior army officers and government functionaries were busy helping themselves with government funds and properties, sending them to foreign countries. Due to this, when the former adviser to the president and I were assigned by the president (JOSE EDUARDO SANTOS) to purchase arms in South Africa, we saw this as a golden opportunity and diverted the money and share it, of which I got a total sum of US$35.8 Million (Thirty five Million Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars).

In case of my absence on earth as a result of death, only you should solicit for assistance of a reliable and sincere foreign partner to assist you to transfer this money out of South Africa for investment purpose. I deposited the box in your name and you can claim it alone with deposited code. Your mother is with all the documents. Take good care of your mother and your sisters.

Attached Message
Please note that this transaction is 100% risk-free and the major thing I 
demand from you is to assure me the safety of this money when it finally 
gets to you. Further information and arrangement commence as soon as trust 
confidence and good relationship are established. I shall be most grateful 
if you maintain the confidentiality of this matter. Please, confirm your 
interest through the above contact telephone numbers or email.

Best regards,

{For the family}
