I NEED YOUR HELP
This very confidential request should not come as a surprise to you; I got
your details from Internate after much considerations, I decided to contact you.
But before further explainations I would like to introduce myself I am Captain
Johnson Nzowu. Until lately, I was the Chief Security Officer to the late
President Laurent Kabila of the Democratic Republic of Congo (at the age of 23)
Regarding your reliability and trustworthiness, I decided to seek for your
assistance in transferring some money out of South Africa into your country for
onward dispatch and investment. I will reveal to you, based on to the fact that
I could rely on you, that at the height of the crisis that led to president
Laurent Kabila's assansination he personally mandated and instructed us to
create and fully equip a special elite force to protect him against the rebels
that were working against his government. This instruction was very discreet and
highly confidential. It was backed up with the sum of US$ 12,700,00.00 (Twelve
Million Seven Hundred Thousand United States) in cash, for the purchase of Arms
and Ammunition from the elite corps, Republic of South Africa I brought this
fund to South Africa where I was supposed to negotiate and purchase the arms and
This money was transported through diplomatic means and negotiations were
still in progress when the news that our President had been shot came to me. I
then quickly decided to stop all negotiations and diverted the money for my
personal use. It was a golden opportunity, and I could not return to my country
due to my loyalty to the government of Laurent Kabila. The money is presently
deposited with a Security Company here in Johannesburg since January 2001. They
do not know the contents of the box. I deposited it as a family treasure
containing gold and diamonds. I now seek your assistance in providing an
overseas account to enable me transfer this money out of South Africa to where
it can be invested. I have made all the necessary arrangments on my own side to
ensure a smooth remittance. However, due to my refugee status, I cannot operate
an account here, neither can I invest here in South Africa. Hence, my desire is
to transfer and invest in your country. With this development, I will be pleased
to welcome you in South Africa to enable my lawyer open a non-resident account
on your behalf for onward transfer to your overseas account. For your
assistance, after the transaction, I agree to give you 30% of the total sum
while the balance 70% will be for my investment. We intend to keep my presence
here in South Africa low profile due to our popularity back home, so we req uest
all information provided to be kept secret and confidential.
We are obliged to provide details immediately we receive the acknowlegdement
of this letter from you indicating your interest to assist me. You can contact
me with the above telephone numbers immediately for easy communiction.
Please do not forget to include
your private telephone and fax numbers
and do not forget to give me a call
with the above telephone number immediately.
