                 REQUEST FOR PARTNERSHIP
  ATTENTION  SIR/ MADAM,
THE LOCAL MANYU COMMUNITY OF THE SOUTH WEST PROVINCE, REPUBLIC OF CAMEROON WEST AFRICA,
IS WILLING TO SELL SOME OF ITS IMPORTANT ARTIFACTS OF ANCIENT AFRICAN TRADITIONAL/ CULTURAL
MASKS OF HIGH VALUE AND HISTORICAL MEANINGS.
    THE LOCAL TRADITIONAL  COUNCIL  IS READY TO SELL ONE MASK AT THE RATE OF
2.000.000FRS CFA (3000EURO) AND WHICH CAN LATER BE SOLD TO WESTERN  PARTNERS
(EUROPE, AMERICA AND ASIA) AT THE COST OF  NOT LESS THAN 15.000EUR PER MASK.
      I HAVE ALREADY MADE SOME CONTACTS TO TWO MESEUM OWNERS IN EUROPE AND CANADA
RESPECTIVELY WHO ARE READY TO BUY THESE VALUABLES AT THE RATE OF 15,000EUR BUT ARE
 NOT WILLING  TO DEAL DIRECTLY WITH THE LOCAL AUTHOURITY CONCERNED, BUT WILL RATHER
PREFER TO DEAL WITH WESTERN PARTNERS.
BEFORE THE SALES OF THIS MASKS, TRADITIONAL RITES OR CEREMONY WILL BE PERFORMED TO
BEG THE AFRICAN gODS TO ACCEPT  THE RELEASE  OF THESE VITAL MEANINGFUL VALUABLES.
THIS MAKES IT DIFFICULT SOMETIMES FOR FOREIGN BUYERS TO DEAL DIRECTLY WITH THE PRIMITIVE
LOCAL AUTHOURITIES. SO THEY PREFER TO BUY FROM EUROPE, AMERICA AND ASIA  AT A HIGHER PRICE.
RATHER THAN BUYING FROM THE LOCAL AUTHOURITIES AT A CHEAPER RATE BECAUSE OF THE STRESS
INVOLVED IN PERFORMING AND FINANCING THE TRADITIONAL RITUALS AND RITES.

    WHAT I WOULD ADVICE YOU TO DO IS TO BUY THESE MASKS AT A CHEAPER RATE FROM THE
LOCAL AUTHOURITIES AND LATER SELL  AT  A HIGHER RATE TO INTERESTED  WESTERN PARTNERS
WHOSE CONTACTS I ALREADY HAVE. YOU WILL MAKE A GOOD PROFIT.
YOU WILL USE ONE AFRICAN WHO WILL FACE THE LOCAL COUNCIL OR COMMUNITY FOR THE PURCHASE ON
 YOUR BEHALF. THIS WILL FACILITATE ALL THE PROCEDURES AND WILL ENHANCE SMOOTH TRANSACTION
 BECAUSE HE TOO UNDERSTANDS THE PEOPLE AND THEIR CULTURE.
  FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS TRANSACTION, PLEASE CONTACT OUR FOREIGN REPRESENTATIVE

      THANKS

MR T. KAMARA JR.

P:S    I WILL SEND TO YOU SOME SAMPLES PHOTOS
       AND HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
       OF THE MASKS.



Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
