Dear Sir/Madam.

Friendly greetings and with a warm heart i write you
this message, however strange or surprising as this
message might be to you due to the fact that we have
not met personally or had any dealings in the past, i
humbly plead that you read my message and also take
due consideration of its immense benefit. My names are
Patrick Molefe, a native of Angolares in the
Democratic Republic of SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE. Before I
go further, i will like also to apologize here for
infringing on your privacy if this message is not
acceptable to you, for i make this proposal as a
person really in need of assistance. I am writing this
email to seek your assistance in helping my family
invest some of my late fatherís wealth, which was
gotten through the sales of (Cocoa) goods. These
accumulated funds that were gotten during his tenure
in office as the head of the Sao Tome and Principe
Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and
Fisheries, was lodged in a bank account outside our
country. Due to the insecurity in our country we
cannot withdraw these funds back into our country for
used as we are afraid we might loose these funds if
our government or members of his formal ministry found

We will like to relocate these funds from its present
location for positive investment purpose as this is
the only way and means we can utilize this money and
have a better future. As a matter of urgency, we ask
for your assistance in investing this money on a
viable venture you might suggest. Since i got your
email contact through the Internet during my search
for a partner, i will plead here that you donít get
annoyed with us for using this medium to reach you for
a business of this magnitude, as this was due to
confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this
medium and beside that, i do not know of any other
means or better way to do it. We have decided to
reward you with 19% of the total amount of the funds
as your share in this transaction if you offer us your
assistance in claiming these funds from its present
location and also a reasonable percentage of any
profit that will arise from the business venture we
might invest our part of the funds into. I will be
requiring the following informationís from you to
enable us discuss the way forward and the amount
involved in this transaction.

  (a) Your complete Names and Nationality.
  (b) Your Mailing Address.
  (c) Your Telephone Numbers.

Be informed here that, the arrangement and logistics
for this transaction have been map out and we shall
remain grateful for your assistance all the days of
our life. Kindly contact me on the following email
address: whether or not you are
interested in assisting us; as that will enable me
look for another partner in the event of non-interest
on your part. Thanking you in anticipationís of your
kindness while looking forward to your positive

Yours Faithfully,
Patrick Molefe.
