With warm heart I offer my friendship, and greetings, and I hope this
mail meets you in good time. However strange or surprising this contact
might seem to you, as we have not met personally or had any dealings in
the past,I humbly ask that you take due consideration of its importance
and immense benefit. I also sincerely seek your confidence, as I make
this proposal to you as a person of integrity.
First and foremost I wish to introduce myself properly to you. My name
is Mr.Robert Savimbi,I am a nephew and Personal Assistant to Late Jonas
Malheiro Savimbi, leader of UNITA (National Union for the Total
Independence of Angola). As led by my instinct, I selected your email
address from an internet directory, in my search for a partner, hence
My Uncle(Mentor) was killed in a battle with government forces of
Angola, led by President Dos Santos, on Friday 22nd February 2002. After
his death, Mr. Antonio Dembo and general Paulo Lukamba who were his
second in commands, assumed office as leaders of UNITA, due to lack of
the Charisma my Uncle had carried the party with in Dembo and general
lukamba, there was chaos and struggle for leadership. Prominent members
like Carlos Morgado lobbied to depose them and assume office as leader
to enrich themselves and some of them who saw me as a threat to their
ambitions, including Mr.Dembo, planned to kill me. The tension and
confusion in UNITA became uncontrollable when Mr. Dembo died 10days
after my Uncle's death. As I lost my mentor in this struggle which has
been on for three decades now, not so much of this struggle interests me
anymore, as there is now no sense of direction. I now desire a peaceful
life, as I am no more interested in conflicts and wars. For this reason,
I secretly left Angola and came here (Holland) to seek political asylum.
I am sincerely proposing to you to render me your highly needed
assistance in respect to safekeeping of some of my Uncle's money that
arose from Diamonds sales. This money (US$18.5million), which was
already on its way to my Uncle's Swiss Bank account, through the
Diplomatic means we use to move money abroad, and was on transit with a
private safe deposit security company here in Amsterdam, Netherlands. in
February when the tragic incident of my Uncle's death occurred. I then
instructed the company to secure the consignment containing the money
pending on further instructions from me. I have waited for sometime now
for security reasons, and have now decided to act with your reliable
assistance. As a matter of fact, the reason I came to the netherlands to
sought for political asylum here is because of the safe deposit.
President Dos Santos has lobbied the International Community to freeze
my Uncle's assets and accounts abroad, to ground UNITA, and has already
done this in Angola. Hence I cannot lodge the funds in my name. Also I
did not declare the funds to the here.
I plan to use this money to safeguard my families future. It is very
essential that you understand that the kind of trust and confidence I
want to put in you is extraordinary, and an act of desperation on my
part, in order not to lose this money. Also, ensure that this contact
with you should be treated with utmost secrecy.
Your role in this project, is clearing the safety deposit containing the
money which is deposited in my name from the Security and finance
company, after which, the money will lodged into an account preferably a
new account you should open for this transaction. My share of the money
will be returned to me when my asylum application in this country is
granted, and I have permission to do business and open an account here.
For your reliable assistance, I will reward you with 15%($2,775,000) of
I have with me, the Certificate of Deposit for the consignment
containing the funds, which will be used for claim from the security
company, and the release codes of the vaults. Also, everything will be
legally processed for transfer of ownership to you, and this transaction
should be completed immediately depending on your prompt response.
I thank you in advance as I anticipate your assistance in enabling me
achieve this goal.
Please contact me whether or not you are interested in assisting me.
This will enable me scout for another partner in the event of
non-interest on your part.
