Forgive me if this letter comes to you as a surprise because we do not know each other in person I 
got your address from a friend of mine working at the south African chamber of commerce who assured 
me that you are a person of respectable character I am DR CHARLES STEVEN, a general practitioner 
attached at the Johannesburg general hospital, South Africa I have very important information I 
wish to share with you, On the 24th of January 2004,we admitted a patient with terminal stage of 
brain cancer It was found on examination that the cancer has metastasized extensively and that the 
woman had no chances of survival thus our medical team informed the patient that her death would be 
a matter of weeks I was assigned to manage this patient and I was able to have her history and 
eventually developed friendship with her. 

It was then that I learnt from the woman that she was married to MOBUTO SESE SEKO, the former 
president of ZAIRE, now Democratic Republic of Congo who was the richest man in Africa before he 
died Her name is MRS AGNES SESE SEKO, the fourth wife of the late president of ZAIRE, Since the 
death of her husband, she came to South Africa with her only son where they were granted political 
asylum by the government of South Africa few days before MRS SESE SEKO died, she informed me of the 
money her late husband deposited for her in a private security company here in South Africa he 
begged me to collect this money and transfer it to a trust account overseas for her only son who is 
only 10 years now she told me how she has no living relation capable of taking care of her only son 
and how she would not want her son to live in Africa she therefore begged me to do everything 
within my powers to send her son to an overseas country where he will live a safe life and have a 
quality education as well as where his Muslim faith will be preserved. 

She told me that the amount of money involved is US$ 6,200,000.00  ( SIX MILLION TWO HUNDRED 
THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) the money is currently deposited as diplomatic consignment with 
(COIN SECURITY & FINANCE COMPANY) here in Johannesburg, South Africa. Before she died, MRS SESE 
SEKO handed me over all the documents to collect the money from the security company She also 
signed a transfer of ownership transferring the ownership of the money to me I have cross-checked 
with the security company and have confirmed that the money is intact and safe in the security 
company MRS.SESE SEKO, and I then agreed that her son and I would share the Money after her death 
if I agree to help her.

Country where we can deposit this money for her son in a safe bank account according to MRS.SESE 
SEKO’S desires I shall also want you to assist me to relocate the little boy to your country even
