Dear Friend,



It is my pleasure to request your assistance on this business proposition which if pursued to its conclusion ,will be of immense benefit to both of us. This request may seem strange butI will crave your indulgence and pray that you view it seriously.My name is John Kabbah of the Democratic Republic of CongoI am one of close frineds to the formar presidentof Congo Democratic LAURENT KABILA of blessed memory, may his soul rest in peace.

For the military of LAURENT KABILA to force out the rebles in my country,I was instructed by him (late president Kabila) to go to the Europe to purchase ARMS AND AMMUNIATION worth us$15.5(Fifteen million Five Hundred Thousand us Dollars) to fight the reble groups. But when it became apparent that president Kabila has been killed in a bloody shoot out by one of his aids. I immediately decided to divert the fund ( US$15.5) into a private security company for safe keeping. The money is presently in Holland (The Netherlands) where I am currently in exile after the death of president Kabila.

I need a reliable and trust worthy foreign partner/national who can assist me to clear and move this money as the beneficiary from the security company.

Though we have not seen nor met each other, but I would want this transaction to be properly handled with modesty and honesty to a huge success within two weeks, this money in question is state fund as it is a deal between you and I, hence the need for secrecy considering the security implications.

Thus, if you are willing to assist me to move this fund out of the Netherlands, you could contact me through the email as stated above to enable us discuss more about the deal and what your percentage will be for assisting me.

Please note that you will be required to make a brief trip to the Netherlands for inspection of the fund. I also intend to visit your country soonest in order to inquire areas of possible business investment.

I shall be sincerely glad if my request is rendered.


Mr.John Kabbah.
