    ATTN. DESCRIPTION: DIRECTOR. 
    
    First permit me to introduce myself as AHMED DAGA. 
    I AM THE DIRECTOR GENERAL MINISTRY OF WORKS AND HOUSING, CAPE VERDE. 
    Being the executive director of my ministry. I awarded the contract of IRRIGATION to Portuguese Firm worth several millions of dollars. 
    In the execution of the project the Portuguese Firm discovered large amount of gold in one of the contract site. 
    
    I collaborated with the Portuguese Firm on a mutual agreement on the proceed of which I have received my share of 5.8m us dollars.
    As a director in the ministry, I cannot introduce or circulate these funds into the CapeVerde banking system 
    considering my provisional duty and considering the fact that I earn less than 1,000 us dollars monthly and 
    coupled with the Bureau of conduct guide lines and regulations for Public Civil Servants. 
     
    The above situation prompted my decision to solicit your co-operation to take delivery of this fund into your custody for me,
    as you will be adequately compensated with 12 percent. 
    
    I will arrange all necessary procedures in ensuring a smooth process for the funds to get to you.
    I will appreciate you contact me once you receive this mail indicating your capability and willingness to enable me
    (to)give you more details of my modus operandi of getting this money to you hitch free.
     
    This matter requires your urgent attention and confidentiality whatever your decision. 
    
    Best Regards 
    AHMED DAGA

    With due respect and humility I write you this proposal which I believe would be of great interest to you. 
    I am Mrs.Sarah Kamara, a Sierra Leone National and the wife of Late Dr LAMINE Kamara of the blessed memory.
    Prior to my husband assassination by the rebel forces loyal to FODAY SANKOH , he was the Director General

    Before the powerful Economic Community of West African States (ECOMOG) forces intervened which eventually resulted into a brutal civil war.
    
    I and my children managed to escape to Abidjan, the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire through the help of my husband's friend who is a trawler.
    We came into Abidjan with some valuables including a cash sum of U$ 18 Million (EIGTHEEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY)
    in two trunk boxes which I deposited with a private security company here in Abidjan - Cote d'Ivoire in my son's name (TONY Kamara).
    For your information, we did not disclose the real content of the boxes to the security 
    company and we do not wish them to know this under any circumstances.
    Rather, we deposited the boxes as containing family valuables. 
    
    Meanwhile, I want to leave Cote d'Ivoire entirely with this money for investment in your country because of
    the stable political situation and mostly for the future of my children.
    Right now I am seeking for a foreign partner who will assist me retrieve and serve as the guardian of this fund
    with whom I can plan the best way to move out this fund for investment purposes which is my motive for contacting you. 
    
    Moreover, you are requested to assist in the following areas:
    That you will be required to negotiate on how best to transfer this fund without attracting much taxation.
    That you will assist in providing me and my family a permanent residence / Resident permit in your country 
    after this money has been transferred to your country.
    That you will be responsible in advising us to invest this fund a viable venture in your country.
    That you will pay a short working visit (2 days) to meet with me and my family face to face here in Abidjan- Cote d'Ivoire
    to enable us establish a personal contact with you to ensure some amount of confidence between us.
    We have it in mind to reward you handsomely for your assistance. 
    
    We are prepared to give you 30 % of the total sum, and 35% share in the total investment to be made.
