FROM: Mark D.Nelson Mandela
Attn: The President/C.E.O.
I do foresee the surprise this letter will bring to you as it comes from a
stranger. But rest assured as it comes with the best of intentions. However
your address was courtesy of a business journal at the world trade center
Johannesburg. But after due consideration, from your profile I became aware
and assured of credibility of handling this trust and my future. Thus after
my humble decision to solicit for your understanding and co-operation in this
transaction, as it will be beneficial to all of us involved.
My name is Mark D. Nelson Mandela, from South Africa. I am the son of the late
President of South Africa [Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela], who died on the 5th
of December 2013. My father used his position being the President of country to
make for him and us a fortune. My father died after a protracted illness. I
was studying overseas when my father died and I was forced to return home
for the funeral. After the funeral, his attorney notified me and my family about
my father's will with his chambers. When I was going through the will, I
discovered that my late father has deposited a consignment containing money
with a private security company in Johannesburg Republic of South Africa.
This consignment was moved through a diplomatic means and deposited as a family
treasures and valuables. The Security Company does not know that the
consignment contains cash money except his attorney and me. The amount is
Twenty Five Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars
However, my aim of contacting you is to help me transfer this money into
your nominated account in your country or any other country. Secondly, I will
like you to also help me look for a profitable investment because I don't have
knowledge of international investment. And as a result of my present
situation, I won't be able to conclude this transaction alone. If you are
interested in helping us out, please try and get back to me immediately.
As soon as I hear from you I will provide to you all the necessary
documents regarding to this transaction.
We have mutually agreed to compensate you with 30%
of the total sum for your assistance,10% for expenses incurred in this
transaction and the remaining 60% will be for me and my family.
God bless you.
Mark D. Nelson Mandela.
For the family.
