Subject: Re:regards Ms. Helen
I respect you blessed One,
I got your contact over the Internet. Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics although, I wish to use this medium to get in touch with you first because it's fastest means. I am Ms Helen Desmond Momoh , the first Daughter of Desmond Momoh . the former finance minister of Sierra Leone,I am 24 years of age. an undergraduate in geology and mining, University of Sierra Leone Kono, (USK) .
Unfortunately, my 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 (FINANCE AND SECURITY HOUSE LTD.) 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 AND SECURITY HOUSE LTD.) here in Accra Ghana, for the
withdrawal of the box and also assist me to invest this 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.
Every 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 desired.
Helen D. Momoh
Below is my father's last letter to me:
Dear Daughter, This is to informed you Helen that I have deposited the sum of U$8 million with (FINANCE AND SECURITY HOUSE LTD.)in Accra Ghana, with you my only Daughter as the sole beneficiary, because I foresee the pressure from my associate, having in mind that I may die one day, because my favorite poet William Wordsworth wrote (The world is too much with us) in case something happens, please take care of your mother and your little Brother with this money, also l have to remind you that jarfaru construction company in Indonesia is also owning me the sum of U$2.3 millions.
All the documents are kept in my private safe box up stairs nobody knows about it expect l. Daughter, I love you and I will always love you, please if you cannot invest this money wisely please kindly seek for an European or America which has the best and stable economy to invest this money because you have to maintain our family legacy and prestige.
