From Mr Patrick Bekele

Dear Sir

I am Mr. Patrick Bekele and my sister is Miss Rose Bekele, we are the
children of late Chief Sam Bekele from Sierra Leone.

I am writing you in absolute confidence primarily to seek your assistance
to transfer our cash of thirty Million Dollars ($30,000.000.00) now in the
custody of a private Security trust firm in Europe the money is in trunk
boxes deposited and declared as family valuables by my late father as a
matter of fact the company does not know the content as money, although
my father made them to under stand that the boxes belongs to his foreign

Source of the money:

My late father Chief Sam Bekele, a native of Mende District in the Northerh
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 accrued 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 my country, 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 thats talking about my mother, my
little sister and myself to be evacuated to Abidjan Cote d' Ivoire with the
CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT he made with a security firm in Europe through the
aid of U.N evacuation team.

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 target looted and it was destroyed. My father including
other top Government functionaries were attaked and killed by the rebels in
November 2000 because of his relationship with the civilian Government of
Ahmed Tejan Kabbah.

As a result of my father's death , and with the news of my uncle's involvement
in the air crash in Januaryit dashed our hope of survival.

The untimely deaths caused my mother's 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 early this year . Now my 18 years 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.
