Hello,

I got your e-mail in my search for a beneficiary to help me achieve my aim.

Sir, I will like to introduce myself formally.

I’m joel Sorey, 24years old, a Sierra Leonean. But my younger sister and I are currently in Cotonou, Benin Rep.

My father, late Sorey Koroma, one of the strongest opposer of Tijjan Kabba’s criminals government, was killed in the height of the crisis in 2003.

My younger sister and I, happened to escaped to Cotonou with the help of some of my father’s friends.

We came to Cotonou with a trunk box that contains $22 million USD, (our father’s money which he made from the sales of gold/diamond during their regime).
We are soliciting for your assistance to make wise invesment for us in your country through your assistance.

Items of the things I want from you:

1.INVESTING MY MONEY IN A LUCRATIVE VENTURE THAT YOU SHALL ADVICE IN YOUR COUNTRY.
2.GETTING AN ADMISSION FOR ME INTO A UNIVERSITY, SO THAT I CAN START UP FROM WHERE I STOP MY EDUCATION IN YOUR COUNTRY.
3.GETTING RESIDENT PERMITS AND A HOUSE FOR ME AND MY SISTER.
4.BANKING PART OF MY MONEY INTO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT IN YOUR COUNTRY.

Why I’m seriously looking for an assistance is that my uncles are trying to deprive me of the money.

Please, for God’s sake and have mercy on me in this assistance. I have it in mind to reward you 30% of the total amount.

You can contact me on my mail Box.

Looking forward to your reply

Best wishes,
Joel Sorey.

Dear Joel,
Maybe I am as corrupt as your uncles, your late father and his enemies (see Special Court for Sierra Leone) and probably yourself too.

I suggest donation to a refugee relief fund or amnesty international. They may need it in Darfur or some other places.

We have already too much money in Switzerland, so we can not afford to take any more inside. Our banks are so full of money that the swiss national bank has great problems right now. They have to get rid of a lot of exccess gold reserves, and this is not an easy thing to do without shaking up the whole worldwide ecomomy. I wont even mention the political implications of such actions, with every party claiming rightfull requirement of the unavoidable increased cash-flow.

You can enter Switzerland as a refugee, which by the story you tell me you really are.
You will get housing, work and education for you and your sister from the swiss goverment (you can even bring your uncles too). But our goverment also will take your money as a first step to cover his costs.

Once your refugee status is confirmed and you get a permanent residence here, you will be re paid back what is left of your money for you to keep.

In this way you would loose only a few thousand dollars and not millions as with the plan (or scheme) you are suggesting.

Hope this helps.

Also my best wishes from me to you and kind greetings from Switzerland.

A.W.

Of course there are other ways to deal with things like this, as can be learned from The tale of the Painted Breast.
