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 Mr. Joel Kalute, former Head of Accounts Department at the Diamond
Mining Company of Sierra Leone.

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 currently secured with a security company is
legitimate money rightfully belonging to me and my partners, which was
earned from priva te 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 eight 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 account, for mutual 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

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


Mr. Joel Kalute.
