Sincere greetings to you and your family. I am writing you this letter with a sincere hope for you to be able to assist me and my family. I am Mabaza Diko, the son of the late Chief Jami Diko, a strong politician who was murdered in the present civil war in Liberia. My father was among the founding fathers of the revolutionary front.
The whole six of the founding fathers were assassinated one after the other by Mr. Charles Taylor for the allegation that they were trying to set up the present rebel group.
I have this strong belief that you are a trustworthy person to deal with hence I have decided to write this letter to you for your assistance.
My late father was among the few Liberians murdered in cold blood by the agent of the ruling government of President Charles Taylor for his alleged support and Sympathy for Liberian opposition of Mr. Charles Taylor's Government.
Before the death of my father, he took me to Togo to deposit the sum of Fifteen Million, two hundred thousand US Dollars (US$15,200,000.00) with a security and finance company, as if he knew the looming danger in Liberia.
The money was deposited in a consignment as gem or precious stone to avoid much demurrage from the Security firm. My dad initially earmarked this money partly for us to continue our schooling abroad and for the Purchase of new
machinery and chemicals for his farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland.
This problem arose when President Charles Taylor was advised to leave his office because the political situation at that time was almost at boiling point. Because of the advice that they gave him, the result was a rampant
killing and mob actions against us all. I and my Mother are currently staying in Holland (Amsterdam) as
refugees/asylum seekers have decided to transfer this money to a foreign country where we can invest it.
I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money anywhere in Africa for fear of encountering the same experience in future since most countries have the same political history. Also we can be traced in Africa.
I am happy to inform you that we have finally been able to get the money into Holland. I am seeking for a foreign partner who can come up and be used as the new next beneficiary to this our money which is kept in the security company. We brought it here under diplomatic coverage through a Diplomatic security Company as a consignment containing
artefacts and family valuables.
It is registered that way to avoid much demurrage from the security company's vaults. Also, it is not allowed to carry money in this form hence we had to declare it as artefacts.
Our helper told us that the only way we can get our funds back is to get a reliable foreign person who we can use. We have arranged all the modalities and documents to do all these. I must let you know that everything is 100% risk Free, timely and the nature of your business does not necessarily matter.
We are begging you to please come quickly to our aid and help us receive this consignment from the security
company. We shall give you all the necessary documents to place you as the sole beneficiary to the consignment.
For your assistance and support, I and my mother have agreed to give you 20% of the total consignment, while 75% will be for us which we shall also invest in your Country with your advice and the remaining 5% will be mapped out for any
incidental expenses which we may incur during the transaction.
We have all the original documents that you will produce at the security company so that the consignment will be released to you on our behalf without the security company asking you questions.
Please be interested to render us the needed assistance because we are in
dying need of your help, support and endeavour to call me through my Guardian's phone number +31-620-582-669 and ask after me or reply me through my private email address as above. Remember that this is highly confidential
discussion and also the Success of this whole transaction depends on how secret it is kept.
I shall bring you into a more detailed picture of this transaction when you reply me.
Forgive my indignition as this message comes to you.I did like to send to you the best wishes of good health and success in your pursuits particularly through my proposal as contained in this letter.
I am Mrs. Mariam Abacha,the widow of the late Gen.Sani Abacha former Nigerian Military Head of State who died mysteriously as a result of Cardiac Arrest. Since after my husband s death my family is under restriction of movement and that not withstanding,we are being molested,policed and our Bank Account both here and abroad are being frozen by the Nigerian Civilian Government.Furthermore,my elder son was in detention by the Nigerian Government for more interrogation about my husband s assets and some vital documents.
Following the recent discovery of my husband s Bank Account by theNigerian Government with Swiss Bank in which the huge sum of US$700 Million and DM450 Million was lodged.I therefore decided to contact you in confidence as a foreigner as our other family friends gave up to the government our funds with them. but I was able to move out the sum of US$14.6m Dollars,sealed in two Metal Boxes for security reasons.I therefore personally,appeal to you
seriously and religiously for your urgent assistance to move this money into your country where I believe it will be safe since I cannot leave the country due to the restriction of movement imposed on the members of my family by the Nigerian Government. You can contact me through my email address as above and I shall ask my son MUSTAPHA to come over to your country to
liaise with you towards effective completion of thistransaction. However,as soon as you indicate your interest my son shall send you the Air-Way Bill of the Luggage and other related documents so that you can help to claim the Luggage and subsequently transfer to your personal or company s account.
Conclusively,we have agreed to offer you 20% of the total sum,why 80% is to be held on trust by you until we can decide on a suitable business investment in your country subsequent to our free movement by the Nigerian Government. Please reply urgently and treat with absolute confidentiality I want this transaction to atmost be concluded within two weeks from now so I just need you to collect the consignment for my family so try as soon as possible to get back to me so that I can know my faith.

FROM: OBOBO STEVENS
SOLICITING FOR A BUSINESS VENTURE AND PARTNERSHIP
Before I proceed, I must be grateful to introduce myself. My name is Mr. Obobo Stevens a Zimbabwean. I was formerly a personal aide to one of the top ministers (Minister of Finance) of Robert Mugabe's former Government. Due to my position and closeness with the minister, I absconded with Fifteen . Five Million United States Dollars (US$15.5M) which was part of the money meant for campaigning for President Robert Mugabe's re-election into office
under Zanu PF Party. Presently I have been able to move the funds diplomatically to a
Security Company in the Netherlands where I now reside as refugee.
As a result of my present situation as a refugee who cannot have access to own an account or accounts, I am looking for a trustworthy individual/firm to advice me in making the rightful
investment as well as to provide account(s) where the funds will be lodge into. Moreso, we are at the interim interested in buying properties for residence as my family will be residing there in the near future.
As regards your commission/remuneration, I and my immediate family have decided to offer you 25% of the total sum and also set aside 5% for all your expenses (i.e telephone bills,travelling expenses, hotel bills and other miscellaneous expenses). NOTE: I shall commit half of my own share of the total sum into a joint venture project preferably in the purchase of Real Estate or other profitable business venture. Be assured that you stand no risk of any kind as the funds in question belong to me alone. As soon as I get your consent, I will furnish you with the details and contact of the Security Company and a face to face meeting
will be arrange in order to know each other better. I strongly believe that associating with you to embark on this and other business ventures will derive a huge success hereafter and
it will be a long lasting business association. If you have any question, do not fail to contact me with the above telephone number and e-mail address.
I await your anticipated co-operation.
Mr. Obobo Stevens.
