Mr. Steve Pharook Phone: +668-127-954-85 E-mail; email@example.com Dear Sir, With due respect and humility, I write you this letter which I believe would be of great interest to you. This plea for help might not fall within the range of your business but I am sure it is going to open door to unimaginable financial break through between us. I got your contact from a business directory on my trip to the Thailand chamber of commerce and industry. I decided to unfold an investment plan of which I am convinced it will benefit both of us mutually. I will like to introduce myself to you, I am Mr. Steve Pharook the first son of late Mr. Kofur Pharook from Darfur region in southern Sudan , East Africa . I lost my father in the recent crisis in Sudan of which I don’t know how familiar you are with the on going crisis, but for more clarification, I request you visit: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2134220.stm. After the assassination of my father, I and my mother managed to escape to Bangkok Thailand where I am writing from. Before the death of my father, he had a transaction of importing Arms and Ammunition for his late boss Mr. John Garang the leader of the Sudan peoples liberation army (SPLA) rebel group worth hundreds of million of united states dollars through a Russian firm. After the transaction was completed, my late father realized the sum of US$3.8million which he deposited with a security firm for investment purposes although his aim was not realized. Due to the economic situation and unstable government here in Thailand , we are asking for your assistance in helping us to come to your country and also help us in receiving this fund for investment partnership with you. We have agreed to map out some percentage for you for all your assistance. I await your urgent reply and interest in working with me in this partnership and ask that you reply through the e-mail; firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks, Faithfully. Steve Pharook
