First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this
transaction, this is by it's nature of being utterly confidential & top
secret. You were introduced to me from the Sierra- Leonean chamber of
commerce (Foreign Trade Division). I am a Sierra Leonean businessman.
I was formally into the importation and sale of medical equipment in
my native country, Sierra -Leone. My operational base was in Freetown,
the capital city. In January 1999, when the second civil war broke out
in my country, my office and warehouse were burnt by the Revolutionary
United Front Rebels, who invaded Freetown. In that attack, I lost all
my properties and assets. I was left with virtually nothing, except some
money I had in the bank. When the United Nations sent in troops to quell
the rebel's onslaught and there was a relative peace in Freetown, I returned
to business, but this time, I invested my resources in the Mining of
Diamond which abounds in my country and I exported the Diamond through
the help of a third party, some Lebanese who were very much versed in
the industry to Antwerp in Belgium. The returns I got from this business
was quite good and my life was gradually picking up again until early
this year when the Sierra- Leonean government banned private exportation
of the Diamond deposit and also called on the United Nations to ban the
sale of Sierra - Leonean Diamond at the international market. The U.N
obliged the government and it is now illegal to sell/buy Diamond emanating
from Sierra-Leone. Following this action, the government of my country
clamped down on all businessmen who had made fortunes selling Diamond.
Consequently, my newly acquired properties were seized again and I had
no option than to leave the country immediately. But I did that only
after I was able to first move my money out of the country. I had US$32.5M(Thirty
Two Million five hundred United States Dollars) in my domiciliary account
in Freetown. I had to move the money out of the
Country through a very secret arranged channel. This was done in very
unconventional methods, by my friend an official at the "Security Minting
& Printing Company of my country. Now, the money is in an OVERSEA COUNTRY
under the custody of a private security firm. The help I am now seeking
is someone who has the capabilities of receiving the US$32.5M, in his
account, because I am on self-exile in a neighboring West African country
from where I am trying to work out my traveling documents to enable me
travel abroad. All you need to have is a power of attorney from me, empowering
you as the recipient of this fund. Secondly, after you collect this money,
I would want you to help me get a permanent resident permit in your country.
For your efforts and the expenses you may incur in the course of this
transaction, you will be entitled to 20% of the total sum. But we shall
have an agreement to the effect that you
WILL NOT take or spend out of the entire money until such a time when
I am able to be with you. I will let you have the telephone and fax numbers
of the private security firm and the name of the contact person on demand.
Please, feel free to reach me on my universal voicemail/fax number or
my e-mail address. While leaving a voicemail do remember to include your
full name and your direct telephone number preferably your
private telephone and fax lines. I must apologize for the inconveniences
this may cause you. waiting to hear from you ASAP.

Best Regards,
