Dear friend,
This letter may come to you as a surprise but I really pray to God to help
me choose somebody that will be my true partner. I got your email address
from network directory. I apologize if I have infringed on your privacy. I
am Richard Kabbah. I was once a prominent member of the former Sierra
Leone government. During the civil war in Sierra Leone some few years  ago
the present president, president Tejan Kabba started a witch hunting of 
all the past cabinet members leading to the seizure of treasury and 
capital assets, which affected me and my family drastically during which
process some of my investments ,both home and abroad were confiscated.
I decided to flea to The Netherlands. Before I relocated to the UK were we
are presently taking
Refuge Before now I had deposited a consignment, containing Fifteen
million  five hundred thousand dollars($15,500,000.00),with a security in
The Netherlands and since the law there do not allow refugee to get
involved in transaction of this magnitude hence we beseech your
assistance. I will give all the power necessary (documents) to collect the
box on my behalf when you tell me in
your reply that you will help me and I can trust and count on you. You
don't have to worry, as this is 100% risk free.  No doubt this proposal
will make you apprehensive, please I employ you to observe utmost
confidentiality and rest assured that this transaction would be most
profitable for both of us. Note also that we shall  require your
assistance to invest our share in your country or which ever avenue you
consider fit such as, buying of properties like houses, hotels etc)
This is why your urgent action and response is of priority to enable us
conclude this transaction, as soon as possible. I do not have the
modalities to put up claims to this fund. Hence, I am contacting you to
assist me in transferring this fund into your account. All documents
relating to the conclusion of this transaction is in my custody, which I
will make available to you later. Your area of specialization will not be
a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction. We will be
waiting to hear from you via our alternative
on the next line of action.
Sincerely yours,
Richard Kabbah
