FROM: ARTHUR MPASHI My Dear, RE: $8.500.000.00 Million Dollars Transaction. It is my humble pleasure to write you this letter irrespective of the fact that we do not know each other, I got your contact from my search in the internet. After my prayers my inner mind spirit was lifted and lead to get in touch with you first, I believe that I have the right person. I am ARTHUR MPASHI a citizen of ZAMBIA. Since my mother died i find it difficult to relate with other polygamous family members of my late parents, because there are so much envy among them selves. My father married three wives and my Non Biological mother was the last. As the only child of my mother she kept this information’s am sharing with you secret. My mother married to my father for 11 years without a child, then I was Adopted. I am the only Adopted son of my parents before they died. Before my father died he gave to my mother $8,500,000.00 Million US Dollars to lodged in a savings And Finance company overseas, I am the only person in their family that knows about the deposited money. Beside my late father has told me in confidential that the fund should be my inheritance. My mother made it unknown to other members of the family. My father was a senior military Officer with the Zambian Army until his death. My father was assassinated by hired thugs from the Presidency, the killing of my father by the Presidency is because my father is not in support of the ruling government activities, then he planed with some top military officer in December 2005, to organize a coup, as the plan to take over the government was still on the arrangement went to the hearing of the president, my father was arrested with other officers, after three month detention and interrogations my father was later released, but six days after my father was released he was assassinated. My mother died in a motor accident two months my father was killed. In other to make this transaction commence, I will not want to use my name or our family name in making transfer from the savings and finance company into your nominated bank. This is why i need the fund transfer in a bank account under another persons name or company. Reason: is because when my father was alive he was the PURCHACHING AND LOGISTIC CHAIRMAN, he had many Monetary dealing on his name in my country And out side my country, and he uses a Company registered in his name as a means of fronting funds deposit and transferring funds. Now the said company has since been declared bankruptcy and liquidate, and all the funds on the Company's name and on his name in our country bank and in other bank has been frozen by the ruling government. Since the death of fathers and mother my family / relations started treating me as an outcast and have taking total control of my parent prosperities. I don't want them to know about this development. Pertaining the disbursement or your commission on the money, upon your acknowledgement and willingness to be a part of this arrangement, then we will discuss on what gets to you. Hoping to hearing from you through my email: email@example.com , so that we can arrange to get the $8,500.000 Million Dollars to your possession. Regards ARTHUR MPASHI
