I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise but your contact was
given to me by a reliable friend of my father working in dubai Chambers of
Commerce, Industries and developement, After I told him that I needed a
reliable and honest business partner outside emirates.
My name is mr. TANKO YAKASSI. I am a Sierra Leonean and the son of the late
Osman Yakassi, former Director-General of the Government of Gold and
Diamond Office (GDDO) in Freetown. He replaced the Lebanese business tycoon
Mr Jamil Mohamed Saheed who was sacked by the government of President Ahmed
Unfortunately, my father was attacked by rebels of the Revolutionary United
Front (RUF) in Kono, Eastern Sierra Leone.
He survived the bullet wounds and was hospitalised at the Connaught Hospital
in Freetown where he later died of internal bleeding. Before he died, he
revealed to me that he has US$ 35.MILLION in an Iron Crate which he lodged
in a security company for safe keeping in dubai,united arab emirates.
And he registered the contents of the box as gold and diamond which belongs
to him and his foreign partner.
He also confided in me that he kept the certificate of the deposit and the
keys of the box in his safe.
As last month, I traced the address of the security company in dubai.
a state in united arab emirates. Backed with the certificate and receipt of
the part payment, I met the Director of the security company with the
receipt for collection of the box.
After thorough verifications, he agreed for the release provided I can come
along with the foreign partner who is involved in the transaction.
Based on this development, I contacted a friend of my father who is working
at the Chamber of Commerce to assist me to seek for a reliable, honest and
well-established individual that has business foresight, he then gave me
your contact as the person he believes will do a fair transaction with me.
I propose that you come as the foreign partner concerned so that we can
retrieve the money from the security company. I have decided that for all
assistance and inconveniences, 20% of the total sum would be yours, while
the rest of the remaining balance will be put into investment opportunities
in any profitable areas you might suggest in your country or any where else
Please keep this proposal in the most confidential manner and I assure you
of our 100% risk free transaction.
Please let me be informed of your decision to come so that I can work on
your visa. While I close here, I hope
that Almighty God will give you the power to do this transaction with me and
I am waiting for your urgent responds to this letter.
You can send me Email through the above address,
Thanks so much for your co-operation.
MR TANKO YAKASSI.
