Dear Friend,

I am the first son of the late Mobutu Sese Seko, the
former President of the Congo Republic. I am presently
under protective custody in Nigeria as a political
refugee. I got your contact during
my search for a stranger that can cooperate with me in
this mutual transaction. I want you to note that this
business will benefit both of us. However, you must confirm your
ability to handle this because it involves a large
amount of money. The money (50 million US DOLLARS is
my share of my father's estate. I boxed and shipped the
money to a security company abroad at the peak of the
war/political crisis that rocked my country few years
ago. Now the crisis has ended and I need a
trustworthy person like you to proceed to the place of the
security company in order to clear the fund and invest
on my behalf as I dont want my name to be used for
Note that I will send to you the relevant documents
that will enable you take possesion of the the fund
for onward investment for our mutual benefit. All I
need from you is as follows:
1. A letter of committment (duely signed) that you
will keep the transaction strictly confidential.
2. Your confirmation of your ability to handle this.
3. Your IDt or driving licence
number for identification to the security company.
4. Your telephone and fax numbers for communication.
5. Your full permanent address.
As soon as I get the above information from you, I
will disclose to you the name and the country of the
security company. I will forward your name and
particulars to the security company to enable them
contact you accordingly. I will also send to you a
LETTER OF AUTHORITY to enable you clear the fund on
my behalf. Note that this is a very safe transaction
as this money is my share of my father's estate.
I am waiting for your response to enable us proceed.


Mr.Raymond Seko Mobutu.
