It is with strict confidence and trust that I wish to contact
you seeking for your assistance to help as regards an investment
opportunity. I sincerely hope that this letter will not come
as a surprise to you, or cause you any embarrassment since
we neither knew each other before, nor have had any previous
contact or correspondence.
I would appreciate your benevolence in giving this matter
the much-needed attention as I am presently in a difficult
situation and need your assistance and guidance urgently.
I am Mrs. Ndaye Banya, wife of Maj. Timothy Banya, the former
commander and head of the Secret Unit in charge of Diamond
dealing for the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) of Sierra-Leone.
My husband was formerly working directly with the former Rebel
Leader Mr. Foday Sankoh who is presently in government custody.
The government intends trying Mr. Foday for illegal diamond
dealing and especially for the killing of 21 people during
a public demonstration outside his home in May last year which
subsequently lead to this arrest.
As the situation is, my husband is very much likely to be
prosecuted alongside for activities in the diamond mining.
The RUF is now headed by Gen. Issa Sessey who is determined
in bringing peace to Sierra Leone, he signed cease-fire agreement
with the government on Friday 10th Nov., 2000 and instructed
us that peace must returned to our fatherland after nine-years
conflict, pledging to allow U.N. troops unhindered access
throughout Sierra-Leone. My fear is that the government will
try Mr. Foday and that my husband may also be prosecuted alongside
and all our assets may be confiscated why all traceable accounts
abroad and locally to our name and families may also be frozen
given the circumstances. In view of this development, I am
trapped with large quantity of diamond and about US$20,000,000.00
(Twenty Million United States Dollars) that is in cash. As
the situation is I do not have the know-how to move this money
without any trace to our name and how to dispose of these
unpolished diamonds accordingly.
My situation is very desperate, as I cannot leave Sierra
Leone because of the house arrest I am under. In the light
of above, I am soliciting your assistance and partnership
to move this money and unpolished diamonds out of Sierra Leone
as both of us can make a lot of profit. I would require your
assistance in terms of logistics and materials to enhance
the safe movement of the items from Sierra Leone. Therefore,
contact me immediately, only, if you are able and interested
in assisting me. Kindly contact me preferably using my alternative
email address at firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible.
Thanks for your anticipated understanding and assistance.
