You know, there must be a whole lot of incredibly rich people in Africa who hate banks.



ATTN :Sir/Madam


This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not
yet met. The message could be strange but reel if you pay some attention to it.
I could have notified you about it at least for the sake of your integrity.
Please accept my sincere apologies. In bringing this message of goodwill to you,
I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains.


I am Mr. Kenneth Kabila, the brother to late Laurent Kabila President of
Congo DRC who was assassinated on the 16th of January 2001 by one of his
military aides. I managed to get your contact details through “The World
Business Journal”, a journal of the Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce in South
Africa in the time I was desperately looking for a trustworthy person to assist
me in this confidential business.


On the 17th of May 1997, my late brother,the President Laurent Kabila took
over the power after toppling the previous dictator, the late President Mobutu
Sese Seko. After officially taking over as Head of State on the 29th of May
1997, my late brother, President Desire Laurent Kabila, a former rebel leader
met with some Tutsi factions from the region of Goma, East of the country with
the assistance Rwandese, Ugandan and Burundese forces.

my late brother, President Laurent Kabila made me in charge of purchasing
armaments in the Republic of South Africa for an amount of US$28.5 MILLIONS
(Twenty Eight Millions Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in cash.
That amount of money was transferred in South Africa through diplomatic
channels. After his death, being in Johannesburg, South Africa, I decided to
keep that money for personal use. At present the money is kept in a Security
Company in Johannesburg.


I am currently and temporarily living in Johannesburg while waiting for the
appeal lodged by lawyer on my behalf to the Department of Home Affairs, for my
refugee status’ application. I am having difficulty getting the money out of
South Africa because the South African monetary policy is not favorable to
people like myself who have no permanent residence status. Moreover the
political climate in South Africa at the moment being so sensitive and unstable,
investing here would only limit my chances and reduce my opportunities.

In acknowledgment of executive powers and the various business
opportunities in your country,


I am requesting your assistance in helping me transfer this money in your
personal or business account. After the transfer is accomplished, I will then
follow you for subsequent investments there. For your assistance in this
transaction, I offer you 25% of the total sum for compensation. And all other
expenses you incur during this operation will be credited to you. If you need
further details concerning this business, please do not hesitate to contact me.
All documents concerning this transaction and money will be available to you on

I must then emphasize that this operation or transaction is highly
confidential and is to be kept
as such. If this proposal is of interest you,
please provide me with private phone and fax numbers ,and you can call me on
this my phone number for more details .


Thank you,

Yours faithfully



You'd think that if Kenneth got my contact details through the World Business Journal, he'd know whether to call me sir or madam.
