Dear Sir, (first cause for concern)
 I am the eldest son of the late Henri Kembe Kabongo
(a foremost human rights activist in the Democratic
Republic of Congo). My father died in March 2000 as a
result of the inhumane treatment meted out on him
while in prison by the government of Laurent Kabila.
However, it is particularly important to mention here
that before the death of my father, he was a
successful businessman and his business empire
includes real estate, exportation, and consultancy
services which cut across Africa. He was able to
accumulate enough money both in local and foreign
currencies through his business empire. In fact, he
was at one time rated among the first five richest
Congolese businessmen by one of the leading business
magazines in my country. His entire business has been
on the upward trend over the past ten years, bringing
his net profit during the period under review to
fifty million U.S dollars ($50,000,000). This of
course does not include his assets which are already
running into millions of dollars. Having said all
this, there was a twist in my father’s success story
following his confrontation with the government of
Laurent Kabila who has been quite high-handed and
dictatorial in his policies and day-to-day running of
the affairs of the Congolese people. My father being a
human rights activist, criticised his government in
both local and international newspapers. This
infuriated him and he clamped my father in jail until
he died in March last year due to ill health.
Fortunately, before the arrest of my father, his
attorney acting upon his instructions, transferred the
sum of fifty million U.S dollars ($50,000,000) from
his local banks to a security firm overseas. He did
this for fear of this accounts being frozen by the
government. Following my father’s death, my entire
family decided to seek political assylum in
Lome-Togo, as the eldest son of my late father and
according to our tradition in Africa. I have now
inherited all my father’s wealth. Considering the
present face-off between Kabila and my family, I was
then advised by my father’s attorney (presently my
attorney) to seek the assistance of someone based in
your country to receive the amount in question being
($50,000,000). Since I have the intention of
relocating my family there with the aim of settling
down there and investing. I have decided to give you
25% of the total amount involved and I have also set
aside 5% for any expenses that might be incurred in
the course of this transaction. To finalize this
transaction you will have to contact me via my e-mail
address ( further discussions
will be centered on how and when we shall be meeting
with the attorney. I shall expect you to keep this
transaction confidential due to the present
circumstance of my family and I urgently await your

Yours faithfully

Jerome Kembe.
