Subject: YOU ARE BLESSED
Dear Friend,This letter might surprise you because we have met neither in person nor by correspondence.I got your contact through some discreet inquiry from the chamber of commerce and industry, you were revealed as being quite astute in private entrepreneurship. I am Mr Duke Kabila the son of late President LAURENT DESIRE KABILA the immediate past President of THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO in Africa who was murdered on Tuesday 16th January 2001.I am contacting you bearing in mind that you will be of good assistance to me in a business that will benefit both of us. I inherited a huge sum of money from my late Father, being money from a successful transaction between him and a very close business associate and friend of the family.There has been chaos in my family since our father demise and since I am the only person aware of this transaction between my father and his partner. I am contacting you from Edinburgh, United kingdom where the money has been deposited with a
security firm with an open beneficiary. Please feel free to send me an email as soon as you receive this letter for more details. Please do not neglect this email.Thanks and God Bless.Regards,Mr Duke Kabila.
