Another African phishing scam.... FW: Business Request

Nothing new here, just a basic '419 - advanced fee' scam

My Dear,

My name is  Ms. LESLIE BAGAMBA. I am a single woman of 29 years old from Angola but living presently in Ghana, West Africa. The reason I am contacting you is based on the business request I want to discuss with you. I am the only child of my father before he died leaving me a bulk of his properties/ investments in Angola / Ghana. Before my father's death , he served as a petroleum minister for eight years in Angola thereby controlling all negotiations of petroleum/ oil / gas transactions in Angola .This accorded him the privilege to make friends with the men of mighty , timbre and caliber in the world and also an opportunity that made him one of the richest men in Angola .

After he was changed from the ministry of petroleum to ministry of Agriculture, he decided to resign for personal reasons, this however raised an eyebrow on him by the government who decided to probe his activities for the past eight years when he was on seat as the minister and chairman of the head of affairs in the petroleum/ oil / gas resources in Angola. During the investigation, the government discovered that my father has over two hundred houses and investments both in Angola, Ghana and United Kingdom valued over Fifty Million US Dollars (US$50, 000, 000,
00) .The plot to kill my both parents was hatched and my father was arrested afterwards and on the third day of his arrest before going to court, he was killed by serving him tea with poisonous substance. My mother became disillusioned and thus started attacking the government through the media and printing negative information about the government through anti government crusade .This led to her fatal accident where only she died and her driver survived it.

It was at this point that, I ran to Ghana to safe my life. After six months of my living in Britain, I located all my father's assets in Britain and in Ghana through my father's lawyer whom I have visited severally with my father whenever we come to Ghana. Now the problem is, the government back in Luanda Angola has confiscated all my father's properties and assets in Angola and they have sent the attorney general of the country to sign a mutual agreement to seize all my father's assets in Ghana and United Kingdom, to sell and send the money back to Angola government .This prompted I and the family lawyer to sell all the properties and investments of my late father in Britain at a reduced price since I am the next of kin. After the sales of properties , shares , business investments and cash money , I have a total of Twenty One Million , Nine Hundred & Forty Six Thousand , Four Hundred and Sixty Seven, Ninety United States Dollars ($21,946,467.90) realized which is currently placed in a safe place which I will tell you when we agree on terms for you to receive it for me in your country .I do not want to re invest the money here in Africa anymore to avoid losing it to the Angola government since they are forming a liaison with the Ghana government .

Therefore, if you are interested to help me move this money to your account, then I will be glad to give you 30% of the total amount while I put aside 5% for all miscellaneous expenses that might come during the course of the release of the money to you, the remaining 65% is mine which I will use to start new life in your country. I already have business plans of what I will invest the money within your country , my only need is to allow someone help receive the money for me out of Ghana as if I decide to do it myself will be suspicious and will alert the authorities . Remember this transaction is risk free as long as you keep every details of the transaction very confidential and secret.

If you are honest person and sincere and  you are interested in handling this transaction with me , send me a response to indicate your willingness through the email below ; Once I get your reply , I will ask my lawyer to prepare every details of releasing the money to you . You are to send your full names, address, your business corporation, your personal email for confidentiality and your telephone number. My email is:

Yours Faithfully

Ms. Leslie Bagamba
