Tel: 225 07 558 341.
please I am Mr HANSON ALFRED KAMARA, the only son of late chief Joseph Alfred
KAMARA from Sierra Leone.I know that my message will come to you as a surprise
to you but however, I am writing you in absolute confidence primarily to
seek your assistance to transfer our cash of nine million eight hundred
thousand dollar ($9,800,000) now in a custody of a BANK here in Abidjan
to your private account pending our arrival to your country.
SOURCE OF THE MONEY
My late father, chief Joseph Alfred Kamara, a native of mende district
in the Northern province of Sierra Leone, was the general Manager of Sierra
Leone mining co-operation (S.L.M.C.) Freetown. According to my father.
This money was the income acquired from mining co-operation's over draft
and minor sales. Before the peak of the civil war between the rebels forces
of major Paul Koroma and the combined forces of ECOMOG peace keeping operation
that almost destroyed mycountry, following the forceful removal from power
of the Civilian Elected President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah by the rebels. My father
had already made arrangement for his family, my mother, my little sister
and myself to be evacuated to Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire with our personal effects.
My father deposited the fund in the BANK until after the war when he will
join us. During the war in my country, and following the indiscriminate
looting of public and Government properties by the rebel forces, the sierra
Leone mining coop. Was one of the targets looted and destroyed. My father
including other top Government functionaries Were attacked and killed by
the rebels in November 2002 because of his relationship with the civilian
Government of Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. As a result of my father death, dashed
our hope of survival. The untimely deaths caused my mothers heart failure
and other related complications of which she later died in the hospital
After we must have spent a lot of money on her. Now my 16-year-old sister
and myself are alone in this strange country suffering without any care
or help. Without any relation, we are now like refugees and orphans. Our
only hope now is in this fund which our
father deposited in the BANK.
To this effect, I humbly solicit your assistance in the followings ways.
To assist me claim this fund from the BANK as co-beneficiary. To transfer
this money in your name to your country. To make a good arrangement for
a joint business investment on our behalf in your country and you being
the caretaker. To secure a college for my little sister and my self in your
country to further our education. And to make arrangement for our travel
to meet you face to face in your country after you have transferred this
fund. Most importantly. The whole documents issued after deposit are in
my custody. For your assistance, I beg to concede 20% of this money to
you for your efforts and assistance.
Awaiting for your urgent reply or immediate telephone call for further informations.
Thanks and God bless.
HANSON ALFRED KAMARA and Sister.
