Dear friend, 

I am MR. THABO MOLOTHO, I work with the Diplomatic Courier and Packaging Sector of the Central Bank 
of the Equatorial Guinea.

During the air-lift of some Presidential luggage’s to Europe, I and my colleagues 
in the above department unanimously decided to include additional luggage 
containing $10m only for our own benefit though it was labelled "photographic equipment" for 
security reasons.

I am obliged to contact you to assist us in getting this luggage cleared and 
delivered to you from the agent as we have agreed on the following terms.

(1) All relevant documents to claim this luggage will be procured in your name to 
enable the agent clear and deliver same to your mailing address.
(2) That you will be entitled to a share of 25% of the total money.
(3) That 5% of the total money will be set aside for sundry expenses.
(4) That 70% of the total money will be for me and my colleagues.

If this business transaction / terms are ok by you, you can e-mail me at this address.
Also, furnish me with your full names, mailing address, your personal telephone / 
fax numbers for easier communication and onward transfer to the agent in Europe.

Note that this business transaction is 100% risk free as all relevant documents 
to back up the claim of the luggage will be provided for you hence we advice you 
to keep the entire transaction close to yourself until you must have received 
the luggage. For security reasons other modalities will be discussed as soon as 
you get back to me.

Yours faithfully, 

Thabo Molotho
