BEST REGARDS PASTOR MIKE COTONOU BENIN
URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL
I am Pastor Prince Mike, the first son of Late Lufuno Mike. l am a citizen of Swaziland.My father was the managing director of Lufuno Aluminium Company in Swaziland but very unfortunately he died in the year 2002 after a protracted illness. Due to poor management of the company in my country and for the fact that I am so dedicated to church activities, I realized that I will be unable to manage the company and so soon it may wind up.I also realized that I am too young to manage a large company of that type and most of the directors have already began to divert the net profit being generated from the company, I therefore arranged with my father's lawyer and sold the entire company to Mr. Alan Foster from
Poland at the price of US$22,600,000 (Twenty Two million, Six Hundred Thousand Dollars. Due to constant pressure from some of my relatives and also fear of likely attack on my family to hijack the fund, I arranged with my mother to transfer the fund into a security company in cotonou benin where I am currently staying with my mother and other two younger sisters. However, I am into pastorial activities now and I have most of my time dedicated to church activities.
At the moment, we want to transfer the fund to oversea country for investment because there is no good investment atmosphere here in South Africa. I therefore need your assistance to enable me transfer the fund into your private/company's account over there so that we can relocate to plan for theinvestment of the fund through your personal assistance. I mostly need your assistance in investing the fund because I have little experience of investment/management of the fund. It is also my plan that after the successful transfer of the fund into your account there, I will first relocate my mother and other 2 sisters to stay with you while I will first travel to United States of America to complete my theological school.
What I mostly need from you is honest and sincerity because this fund is my life and the life of my family. If you can assist us in this ransaction, I will give you 25% of the total fund while 75% will remain in your account for 2 years to enable me complete my school and then join my other relatives to plan for our family investments. Please, be assured that this transaction is 100% risk free, but you must keep it confidential. If you can assist us, kindly send me an urgent mail me with this above email address to indicate your interest.
