And the letter is answered (albeit briefly) by the exiled ruler of the Channa Dahl, Princess Tikka Masala.
Dear Mr Mbecki,
I am thinking that I may be of assistance to you.
Please be telling me more about your needs.
I received your mail and I wish to thank you immensely for your kind interest to co-operate with me on this transaction and your willingness to support and assist me in this transaction.I would want you to know that this is not a joke.
Please, find hereunder the details of the transaction for better understanding.
Actually this transaction is real, and one hundred percent risk free and does not relate to any breach of law or proceed from drugs. It is a matter of necessity to contact you for this transaction without further investigation about your person, as I view you to be a more responsible personality. It is therefore necessary that you tell me a little about yourself. I hope you would not betray me. As for Trust, it is a given thing that trust is earned, it is not given out lightly; however, because I need you in this transaction, I must give you my trust; it is worth 40% of this money.. I believe that this will keep you from holding back to my own share of the money if the transaction is completed.
Like I stated in my proposal, I will like you to provide your full names and address so that the Attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in place as the next of kin.
We shall hire two separate attorneys. The first attorney will process the WILL, which will name you as the God-Son/beneficiary/sole executor of the Will. Once it is done I will send you a copy by fax for you records. The second attorney will file in the Federal High court with an appropriate affidavit in order to secure a letter of probate empowering you as the God-Son/next of kin/Sole Beneficiary and Trustee/Sole Executor of the Estate of Mr. Charles Andason which includes the sum of US$25M lying in the account number which I shall give you. The essence of hiring two attorneys is to make sure that both attorneys will not have the details of this transaction and thereby prevent them from knowing that this is a deal.
Upon preparation of these documents and approvals from the Ministry of Justice, the letter of probate will be granted in your favour which will give you the authority to request for the transfer of this money to your account. We will then forward your particulars to our correspondence bank in Europe or America who will now transfer the money to your nominated account. All these processes will be accomplished within 10 working days and money will be transferred to your account immediately. The very good thing about this transaction is that it will done in a very proper and legal manner.
I would like you to make available to me your private telephone and fax number so that we can discuss and I can also send you via fax a copy of my ID card and the certificate of the fixed deposit for your assurance that this is a genuine transaction and I want you to take it very seriously.
Please confirm your willingness by providing all the requested information above. All modalities for the successful completion of this transaction has been mapped out provided that you maintain absolute confidentiality and keep to my instructions I shall hand over to you from time to time for a successful completion. For security reasons, I have not disclosed my correct name and the correct name of the bank where I work and where this money is deposited. Once I clarify your willingness to proceed with the transaction, then I shall give you the name of the bank and as well send you the copy of the certificate of deposit and my ID card. Please call me for further explanation on my telephone number: 0027 732 352 166 and my fax number is 0027 732 352 169 or you may send me a mail with further information about yourself before we proceed further.
Very truly yours,
