RE: URGENT ASSISTANCE FOR TRANSFER OF FUND AND INVESTMENT.
I do foresee the surprise this letter will bring to you as it comes from a stranger.
Meanwhile, I got your contact details through a reliable source and I decided to approach you so that you can assist family and me transfer our family inheritance to your country for investment.
My name is Mr. OLIVER ZAKA from the Republic of Tanzania. I am the elderst son of late President of Tanzania Mr. Julius Nyerere who died about few years ago. My father used his position then to make for himself and us some fortune. My father died after a protracted illness.
I was studying overseas when my father died and I was forced to return for the funeral. His Attorney notified me that my late father had used his position then to make some money, which he brilliantly transferred and deposited with a private Security Company here in Johannesburg, Republic of South Africa. He deposited this consignment as valuables.
The security Company does not know that this consignment contains cash money, except the Attorney and me. The amount of this money is Twenty Million United States Dollars (US$20 Million). However, my aim of contacting you is to help me and take this sum into your nominated account in your country or any other part of the world. Secondly, you will also help me look for a profitable investment overseas because I don't have knowledge of international investments. As a result of my present situation, I won't be able to conclude this transaction alone.
If you are interested in helping me out, try and contact me with the above email address indicating your interest to help me. I will then furnish you with more details. I have mutually agreed to compensate you with 30% of the total sum for your assistance, 10% for expenses that might be incurred in the course of the transaction. Then the remaining 60% will remain for my family and me, which you will help us to invest.
I wish to inform you that this transaction attracts no risk on your side hence all the modalities for safe, smooth and successful transaction have been arranged by me.
Be informed that this transaction needs utmost trust and confidentiality.
Looking forward to receiving your urgent reply. God bless you.
MR, OLIVER ZAKA.
