Dear Sir,

I know that this letter will come to you as a surprise due to the
fact that we have not yet met each other before, but please be rest
assured that there is no cause for alarm. I have decided to notify you to
ask for your assistance, because of your integrity and goodwill.
In bringing this message to you, I have to say that I have no
Intention of causing you any personal pains or discomfort. I am Mr.
Samuel Savimbi, son of the late rebel leader Jonas Savimbi of Angola who
was killed on the 22nd of February 2002. Presently, I am desperately
looking for a trustworthy person to assist me in this confidential
My late father, Jonas Savimbi lodged huge sums of money realized from
the sales of diamonds and other precious stones / metals in different
banks in Europe. My father is presently no more, and the movement of
his family members (including me) is highly restricted, all his bank
accounts and properties have been frozen and seized. We are forbidden to
either travel abroad or out of our immediate localities. Presently, I have
just discovered a huge deposit made by my father from the moneyrealized from the last sales of diamonds before is death amounting to
father had deposited this money as diplomatic consignment with a security
firm in Netherlands, I have called the security firm and they have confirm
to me that the consignment is with them. I have all the documents with me
right now that is be needed to collect the consignment from the security
firm, my father hasinstructed the security firm in his deposit request to
release consignment to any three family members which includes myself, my
mother and only sister who is also dead incase of emergency or death.
Right now my family has given me the authority to do everything possible
to get the consignment out as this is the only hope we have now to bring
the family out of itspresent poor financial state.

I am therefore soliciting your help to have this consignment
collected by you and the funds transferred into your account. I will
give you all the necessary documentations to facilitate your collection
of the consignment personally in Amsterdam. The government has no or
will never have knowledge of this business, so there is no need to be
worried about your safety. I guarantee you your safety.

Once I have your complete assurance that you can handle this, I will
immediately send to you the relevant documents that will enable you
take possession of the consignments. This will include certificate of
deposit and shipment airway bill and all other relevant documents.
Meanwhile all I need from you now is as follows:

1. Your confirmation of your ability to handle this.

2. Your word that you will keep this business as confidential as
possible at all times until we conclude this business.

3. Your confidential telephone and fax numbers for communication.

4. Your full Name and Permanent address.

As soon as I get the above information from you, I will also send to
you a LETTER OF AUTHORITY and AGREEMENT to enable you clear the
consignment on my behalf. Note that this is a very safe transaction as the
Angola government has no knowledge that such money is still in existence.
However, in return for all your assistance and troubles we have
decided to offer you 15% of the total amount of money as your share and
5% for all your expenses which will include your travel expenses to
Amsterdam and every other expenses you incur in the cause of this
transaction, such as your telephone bills etc, this makes a total of 20%
my family has agreed to give to you for helping us secure the money.
I am waiting for your response to enable us proceed.


Samuel Savimbi
