Dear friend,

I write to solicit your assistance in a project of mutual benefit and
regret any inconveniences contacting you this way with my proposal. I am
former Head of Accounts Department at the Diamond Mining Company of Sierra

I and my partners (two others) are in urgent need of a foreign associate
to work with us to facilitate the transfer of a large sum of money which
we intend to invest into profitable areas of business in your country. The
funds currentlysecured with a security company is legitimate money
rightfully belonging to me and my partners, which was earned from private
diamond business deals during our time as top officials at the Diamond
Mining Company of Sierra Leone.

Due to unstable political and economic environments in Africa, it is not
quite safe investing ones financial future in this part of the world. We
are currently living in Banjul capital city of The Gambia and in
collaboration with some top officials of the Central Bank of West Africa
have concluded arrangements for the transfer. The money involved is
eighteen million five hundred thousand US Dollars.

However, as a result of the regulations here, we cannot transfer the funds
to your country without having an associate there. I am writing to know if
you could be our overseas associate to handle the transaction privately at
your end, whereby the funds shall be transferred through your bank
formutual benefits. All aspects of the transaction will be done
legitimately from here via the banking process. We propose your commission
shall be 20 per cent of the total money been transferred, in view of
the importance your role as our overseas partners will be, without which
we cannot transfer the funds.

Please consider this proposal seriously and handle with utmost
confidentiality the nformation I have provided you with here. If you are
in a position to assist, then get back to me immediately so I can give
you details. If you cannot help us, do not respond and I apologize for
taking your time.


Fred Kazi.
