Dear Sir/Madam.

Friendly greetings and with a warm heart i write you this message, however
strange or surprising as this message might be to you due to the fact that
we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past, I humbly plead
that you read my message and also take
due consideration of its immense benefit. My names are Patrick Molefe, a
native of Angolares in the Democratic Republic of SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE.
Before I
go further, i will like also to apologize here for infringing on your
privacy if this message is not acceptable to you, for i make this proposal
as a person really in need of assistance. I am writing this email to seek
your assistance in helping my family invest some of my late father's wealth,
which was gotten through the sales of (Cocoa) goods. These accumulated funds
that were gotten during his tenure in office as the head of the Sao Tome and
Principe Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries, was
lodged in a bank account outside our country. Due to the insecurity in our
country we cannot withdraw these funds back into our country for used as we
are afraid we might loose these funds if
our government or members of his formal ministry found out.

We will like to relocate these funds from its present location for positive
investment purpose as this is the only way and means we can utilize this
money and have a better future. As a matter of urgency, we ask for your
assistance in investing this money on a
viable venture you might suggest. Since i got your email contact through
the Internet during my search for a partner, i will plead here that you
don't get annoyed with us for using this medium to reach you for a business
of this magnitude, as this was due to
confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium and beside that, i
do not know of any other means or better way to do it. We have decided to
reward you with 19% of the total amount of the funds as your share in this
transaction if you offer us your
assistance in claiming these funds from its present location and also a
reasonable percentage of any profit that will arise from the business
venture we might invest our part of the funds into. I will be requiring the
following information's from you to enable us discuss the way forward and
the amount involved in this transaction.

  (a) Your complete Names and Nationality.
  (b) Your Mailing Address.
  (c) Your Telephone Numbers.

Be informed here that, the arrangement and logistics for this transaction
have been map out and we shall remain grateful for your assistance all the
days of our life. Kindly contact me on the following email address: whether or not you are
interested in assisting us; as that will enable me look for another partner
in the event of non-interest on your part. Thanking you in anticipation's of
your kindness while looking forward to your positive response.

Yours Faithfully,
Patrick Molefe.
