Obviously, you will be surprised to read this letter from me, but consider it as a request from a family in dare need of foriegn assistance. My mother got your contact information through a family friend working in Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
I am MR.Steve Kabila, the first son of the second wife of Laurent Kabila, the immediate past President of Democratic Republic of Congo. Before the death of my father, he deposited US$ 25.Million(TWENTY FIVE MILLION US$ DOLLARS) in my mother" name ( MARY KABILA) in a safe box of a private Security Company in Johannesburg, South Africa.He did this because of the love and how intimate he was with my mother. He wanted to use this money for campaign for the next election, but unfortunately his own body guard assassinated him. Now, my mother saw it as an opportunity to divert the money for her own personal use because the first wife and her son (President) did not know about this money and moreover they are not in good terms with us.Right now, we are living in South Africa as political asylum seekers and the financial laws of South Africa do not permit us certain financial rights. In view of this, we can not invest this money in South Africa that is why my mother is asking you to assist us transfer this money out of South Africa for investment in your country.
At the conclusion, that is when the money must have been in your account, I propose to give you 25% of the amount, 70% will be for me and 5% will be set aside for any expenses both parties might incure during the transaction. Please, note that this business is 100% risk-free and our only worry is the safety of this money. Once it gets into your account, we want you to assure us the safety of this money. If you are interested send to me your private telephone/fax number for the confidentiality of this business.I assure you that if you show me your readiness and trust in the next 3 working days, this business will be concluded.
My dear even if you are not interested kindly get back to me so that I can as well look for some one else that can help me out of this terrible situation.I look forward for your reply through the above email.
