Subject: I Respect You Sir Madam
I respect you
I got your contact through an international
directory obtained from a consultancy organization based in Brussells Belgium.
I am Mr Edward Desmond Momoh, the first son of Desmond Momoh, the former
finance minister of Sierra Leone.I am 23 years of age, an undergraduate in
geology and mining, University of Sierra Leone Kono, (USK) .
father has been accused and arrested by the Sierra Leone government for
acclaimed illegal possession of ammunition in his residence where all his
traveling documents and other important documents has been seized by the
present government. Because the government saw him as the only opposition to
the autocratic and dictatorial day-to-day emasculation of our poor citizens in
our country. Contrary to the case, which they claimed he committed, he was
sentenced to life imprisonment, which he later died in the prison.
During my father's
tenure as a finance minister in Sierra Leone, he secretly deposited Eight
million dollars cash (US$ 8,000,000.00) in a Financial Institution here in
Accra Ghana disguised as family property, and I was made the only beneficiary.
Meanwhile, my mother has mandated me to use the money for the benefit of the
entire family since i am the only one that is not in my country .I would be
grateful if you can assist in the remittance of this fund by swift transfer
into your account abroad for the benefit of my entire family and for
investment in your country.
I have already taken refuge in Ghana to avoid
persecution back home and also our accounts both foreign and local have been
frozen and property confiscated by the present government in Sierra Leone. In
addition to the unlawful arrest going on in my country Sierra Leone, this is
an SOS message as I only hoped on this money for survival, invariably, I hope
on your mercy, honesty and sincerity.
I would be
glad if you can assist as my father's foreign technical partner to the
(FINANCE FIRM) here in Accra Ghana, for the withdrawal of the box and also
assist me to invest the fund in any profitable area of investment in your
country. I hope when this goal is achieved, my family will be able to start
life again. i am hoping to further my education in your country immediately
after the successful transfer of this fund to your nominated account. It was
due to my father's problem that made me to halt my studies at the University
of Sierra Leone, kono (USK) in order to help my family from total
dehumanization of the current evil regime.
necessary arrangement on how to invest this fund must be undertaken by you,
for, I don't have any knowledge about business, more over, I am too young to
handle such amount of money in any way. Please note that this money is in cash
and i am prepared to offer you a negotiable commission for your assistance. Be
rest assured that this is 100% risk free. The Sierra Leone government has no
knowledge about this money, including this country's government (Ghana) where
I have taken refuge.
Your urgent response would be highly appreciated. I
am seriously looking forward in receiving your quick response soonest. I will
not hesitate to furnish you with further proof of the fund if you so
