Kebir a rebel leader of the Revolutionary United Front of Sierra Leone,who
died,at battle field on 5the june 2002.during the West Africa peace keeping
intervention at the peak of the Sierra Leonian war.Before his death,he
deposited an amount of Ten million five
hundred thousand American dollars(U.S.$10.500,000) in a private security
Presently,I want you to help me transfer the money into your accounts,so
that you can help me to invest it and also to help me acquire naturization
status inyour country.
I will give you 10% as your reward and also 5% as miscellaneous expenses.I
need your reply urgently to enable me forward the necessary information
which protects the documents which are with me as the beneficiary. I hope to
hear from you at the earliest convenient time.
Mr.Bashuri Ahmed Zamani.
Good day to you! I hope all is well with you. Please I'm writing to know if
you have receive the email i sent to you two days ago about the transaction.
Please i wait to hear from you so that we make a step forward to the next
step of that transaction. I look forward to hear from you soonest.
Firstly, I must apologise for my slow response as my assistant (andrews) was
detained with engine trouble due to the recent flooding and had to replace
all fuel in our aircraft at a larger airport as our airfield is limited
to general services only.
Secondly, I must insist you ALWAYS use my full name which is Mr. Waju Takme
IV (4th), to avoid any confusion as I unfortunately share our family Estate
with an evil ‘Step Brother’ who has unfortunately legally been able to take our
family name and worse, the full name of my Great Great Grandfather who was a
formidable leader in the days of the earlier settlements - being the first
Governor of Port Macquarie ! He was not however able to use the lineage as I,
to attain the noble stature of declaring numerological genealogy. We also must remain vigilant, as this person is less than scrupulous, and should he discover our private business together, he could cause havoc ! We must be aware !
My manservant 'andrews', is usually quite reliable, but at times he gets confused and may inadvertently pass on my messages to the 'other' camp (if you know what I mean..) The computer age has caused him some stress of late but at 78, I should imagine he would struggle with all this technology, he also has been know to forget my genealogy and it's importance since my own inheritance battle with the Steppy ! I am sure you are a clever man Mr. Zamani, and shall keep our business most confidential.
So, I am now more at your disposal to assist with this unusual predicament you find yourself in. While this is not my regular line of business, after discussions with Mr. Hizan Idi Otu, I can assure, we have the scope and ability to help out friends in difficulty. We have many Banks in our area and in some - we have several accounts so there should be no problem to arrange to accommodate your required 'parking' of funds. We will not extend this to cousin (Dumass Tu), as he is more aligned with Steppy.
Your commission structure, while less than we generate from a normal business deal, is acceptable under the circumstances, but we MUST watch out for any intrusion by the Step brother ! I trust you will inform me immediately should he make contact with you ! I am sure I can trust you Mr. Zamani, as I am a man of trust myself and I hope you can eventually become a business partner and good friend. We would be delighted to offer to entertain you on our Station at some point in the future once you sort out all; this awful business with your father's estate.
As for immigrating and obtaining a visa, I have asks some 'question' of some of my 'contacts' in high places. It appears, our Government can issue certain Visas for permanent status quite readily. The only downside of this special Visa is that we 'may' have to register you as a Refugee for the purpose of rapidly allowing you to gain access to this wonderful young nation. The upside is the Government will arrange accommodation for you Free !!! This can last for several years too so you will have plenty of time to get settled and plan for your future in this country. You may wish to become involved in our legal industry as I hear it is very lucrative and I know many of the people who come in through 'connections' this way, seem to be involved in all sorts of legal affairs. Some have even become celebrities !!
So, now I am tiring so I must have andrews prepare my evening medication and
hope I can sleep well. The flooding has caused some trouble with the herds
and we may have lost several hundred beasts. Most unfortunate but that is
God's way. At least all our workers are safe and well.
I look forward to hearing from you Sir and bid you goodnight.

Dear Mr Waju Takme IV,
How are you today? Hope fine. I'm writing to know if you have received the
email i sent to you yesterday after your reply to me. Mr Waju Takme IV,
please try as much as possible to respond to me so that we can make a step
forward to the transaction. I'm a bit worried hear from you today. Please
try and get back to me as soon as possible and do not forget to forward me
your full personal contact details to enable me fax all the deposit
certificate documents of the money in finance firm.
God bless you and hope to hear from you soon.
Mr.Bashiru Ahmed zamani.
My dear friend, you must relax a little and allow time for these transmissions to take place. As it was, my manservant (andrews) was put into a right state of panic when he received your email. As I said, the man is not so bright these days and he can easily be upset. I was up looking at a new property in Central Queensland at the time your message arrived and hence I was convinced to have my pilot fly directly back to 'Ho Station' in NSW.
We are now very successfully growing this new breed of Wagu Beef cattle at Ho Shi Tst Station. The Japanese are going absolutely crazy over this stuff and paying a fortune. I
tell you Bashiru, there is great opportunity here ! If I buy this new property in Queensland (12,400 acres) we will probably expand the Wagu Beef project as we currently cannot keep up with the demand.
Do you know much about cattle farming ?? I hope so as this this new project may be interesting for you to be a partner if you wish. We will be using the latest feedlot
technology so the place more or less runs itself but it would be good to have a trustworth person to oversee the property. It's only 1 -1/2 hours flying time to the Gold Coast so you can easily skip over to the Coast for some horizontal refreshment if you know what I mean !! (Not too many pretty girls out that way). The farm has nice new Cherokee Airplane so it's a comfortable flight.
Anyway enough of that business till you get yourself sorted as there will be plenty of time once you get here to look around and see if what you would like to do.
As requested, the best contact point would be the Ho Station as I am there quite often. We bought this place 4 years ago from a Chinese Company who tried to start a Dog Farm !! Can you believe it !! The local Animal Rights folks almost had them crucified before the first pups were even ready to sell. Mind you I don't mind a bit of Dog once in a while as I did spend quite a few years in Asia. You would have thought they might had done a
little more market research before spending all that money on a Dog farm - here amongst all the Tree Huggers !! As it was - we bought the property for a very attractive price and now use the kennels as Dog Vacation Centre (Dog owners spend more on their Dogs than
they do on their own children !)
Wonderful place Asia, and I do still visit from time so please understand Bashiru, that I do move around quite a lot and as such andrews must receive these transmissions during my absences. But I assure you, I have spoken very firmly to him and now he is VERY clear about NOT passing on any information of our 'business' to ... 'you know who'.
He is a dear old fellow and I'm sure you would get along very well indeed.

Dr. Waju Takme IV
Dear Dr Waju Takme IV,
Thanks for your good response to me, anyway i must tell you that i am really comfortable with you over this my transaction and i strongly believe that this transaction is going to bring us as one family soon. Today after reading your email i wrote and submit the application letter of nomination to the finance company on your behalf to enable them start all their arrangements of transferring my father's deposit to your position.
Please, i decided to send the (3)deposit certificate documents to you by email, therefore you should check your ATTACHMENT. Actually, my late father deposited the money (US$10.5m) inside a safe-box under the treasure department of the finance company due to his maturity and position in our government he then took a wise steps during his deposit of the money with the finance company by not exposing the real contents of the safe-box to the finance company. He declare to them that the safe-box contain family treasure for safe keeping.
Like i told you on above that i went to the finance company, after signing the nomination letter with company on your behalf as my co-beneficiary/recipient of my consignment as soon as it transfer out of this country. After my discussion with the director of company he told me that they didn't have any correspondents office in your country, they also made me to understand that they have their affiliated correspondent office in MALAYSIA,BELGIUM,HOLLAND SOUTH-AFRICA. The director said you should choose the nearest place to you where they can transfer the consignment to so that you will go with those deposit documents and claim the consignment from their correspondent office. They said that every arrangement to transfer this consignment will start as soon as you chose your nearest place among all their affiliated offices.
Mr. Waju Takme IV, please try to understand me after
reading this email and I'll like you to make a chose as the company have said
so that they will transfer this consignment out, I was advise from a local
lawyer in Senegal that i should not expose the really content of the safe-box
to the finance company once my late father didn't made the company to know the
really content of the consignment. Even the lawyer promise that he will issue
us an authorizations power of attorney as soon as you are ready to live your
country to any of your choice country to claim the consignment on my behalf.
You may wish to contact the finance company through their contact information
above the deposit documents, please you remember not to disclose the content of
the safe-box to them for security reasons.
I'll be looking forward to hear from you regarding your nearest choosing country among the above stated correspondent offices where you can able to go and claim my consignment on my behalf. Please, reply me very urgent to enable me conclude all the arrangements with the finance company.
You may like to call me on phone 002215394652
Await to hear from you soonest.

My Dear Bashiru,
I do apologize for my slow response but we were away this last week on a fishing expedition. We have been in search of the elusive 'Skruyu Fish'.
This a very rare large fish, and also a very lazy fish and as such is hard to catch. Can you believe this fish is too lazy to take the bait unless you place it right under his mouth !! Anyway we did catch one. I caught it myself. Some people may try to say it was Andrews who caught it but I assure you Bashiri, the man was playing tricks and swapped my fishing rod for his while I was attending to the attendant on our pleasure craft. I can't wait to
take you fishing Bashuri when you get down here.
So - onto this business matter. Now I understand you need a bank account so you can deposit this money. Now while I don't have accounts in Malaysia, Belgium, South Africa or Holland, I do have accounts in Portugal, Liechtenstein, Hong Kong and Aruba (I also have a small on in Vanuatu but prefer to keep that one Hush Hush!). Of course I almost own the bank here in Australia and that would be the obvious choice.
I would imagine your Banks could send the funds anywhere no ?? Mine certainly
can. Just last year the bloody idiots in Hong Kong Bank sent a large sum of my private money to some chap in China by mistake !! Can you imagine the trouble we had getting the money back. The poor chap who received the money raced out bought himself a bloody Ferrari (Enzo I Believe) !!! You can imagine the trouble he had going from a bicycle to a Ferrari in one jump !
Got to admire the Chinese.. 'Peddle Power' to 'Rocket Power' in one day ! The newspapers got hold of it and that did him a good turn for a while. He apparently had 43 women in less than a month. All potential new wives of course.
Anyway the idiots in the HK Bank had to buy the car and it's now on the 'Market' with the General Manager using it for 'Advertising Purposes'. They park it in the bloody Foyer of the Main Branch in Central. I think the poor chap in China was left with nothing but genital warts and his bicycle. Bloody sharks the lot of them if you ask me - So I would prefer we don't use the Hong Kong Bank. Portugal is good choice and still Summer so we could do a trip over while the Sardines are still running. Is Portugal OK ??
I have a very trusted agent there, an Mr. Y. Hunt.
English chap of Polish origin.
Yurik is an old friend and our wives get along famously. His wife Smelik is a lovely lady, along with their children, Lazik, Sillik and their daughter Shavenk.
Australia is still a good option for you Bashiru, and the Banks can manage this type of transaction. We may however be subject to 'Anti -Terrorism' checks as all larger sums of money must be checked. I trust your late Father was not involved in any 'suspect' activities Bashiru ?? It would be embarrassing for me if it were found that I was helping the son of a War Lord or something !!
Anyway dear friend , Andrews has my breakfast prepared so I must oblige as he has been out since first light scooping Whiting out of the bay. Nothing like fresh Whiting fillets lightly crumbed 'eh !
All the best Bashuri and I do hope you can get this moving soon.
Dr. Waju Takme IV
HOPE YOU ENJOYED
