ATTN: The President/C E O In appreciation of your esteemed contact received through a reliable source and the choice of your country I wish to introduce myself, I am MR.STONE KABILA the son of the late Democratic Republic of Congo President Laurent Desire Kabila of the blessed memory took over from late president MOBUTU SESESEKU. I know this letter might come to you as a surprise but I honestly do not intend to surprise you. I write this letter in respect of my intention to invest the sum of (US$27.4M) TWENTY SEVEN MILLION FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS with you. I inherited this money from my mother. This money was destined to South Africa for the purchase of arms and ammunition when my father was the head of state. My mother, though not her legal wife used her privilege position to move fund for my father and since she knows that her survival will depend on how much she can make out of the privilege situation. When my father was assassinated on 16TH Jan,2001 by one of his bodyguards Lt. Rashidi Kasereke through the conspiracy of some top army officers that wanted to topple him I and my mother escaped to Zimbabwe on a diplomatic protection with the container of the money and some other valuables because of the fear that we might be arrested by my half brother Lt. General Joseph Kabila the present head of state. Actually ,his mother and my mother were not in the best of relationship because of whom among them will be the first lady tussle and this ultimately affected us. Considering the relationship between Zimbabwe and the Democratic Republic of Congo government my mother left to South Africa with the money. On getting to South Africa she quickly deposited the box with a reputable security company as a precocious metals and family valuables to conceal the contents of the box. We have moved to South Africa since 2002 and have been here as asylum seekers and since then we have been waiting for the right time to move this fund out of Africa because we were advised not to invest it in South Africa for fear of confiscation by South African authority. And, beside our statues here as a political refugee does not warrant us to operate a bank account here. Therefore, Should you be capable and willing to assist us in this transaction ,please contact me on the below- mention number Looking forward to hearing from you, Thanks and God bless Yours sincerely, MR. STONE KABILA TEL : +27 792286350 ALTERNATIVE EMAIL : Kabilastonej@myway.com N/B: Time is of essence in this transaction as result of just concluded general election in the DRC.
