Dear Mr. Joseph,

Thanks for your urgent response,I am writing this letter to you with pains
and sorrow in my heart. With due respect, trust, humanity, I am from a
polygamous family, My mother (Citra Wirantono)married my father (Kusumo
Wirantono) as the first wife And I lost my mother and father on a plane
crash on board with Air-Asia, from Surabaya Indonesia to Singapore in 2014,
which has made me become an orphan. My late father was a gold miner here in
Indonesia on the same hand a supplier to most of the foreign countries,
also a political godfather, he was rich but my stepmother has claimed all
properties with her biological children and nothing was left for me.

I have been receiving maltreatment by my stepmother and relatives because I
am the only child of my mother, I have no relative from my mother side
because my mother is an orphan. Just recently, my stepmother and relatives
conspired and sold my mother's owned property to an Italian Expatriate
which they shared the money among themselves and left nothing for me.

Early last month, I discovered some documents which show that my mother
deposited some large amount of money in one of the security/finance company
with my name as the next of kin. The amount is US$7,000,000 ( Seven Million
US Dollars) and I have made contact with the security/finance company here
and confirmed the deposit. But the officer whom I contacted then said the
deposit is due for claim, but he told me that my mother's instruction to
the bank is that the money will only be released to me when I present a
guardian/trustee who will help me and invest the money in abroad, Because
right from time my mother had always wished I live in abroad.

I decided to reveal this information to you with sincerity and honesty and
believing that you will be kind and honest to help me claim out the
inheritance money on my behalf from the holding security/finance company if
I present you as my partner, guardian/trustee and you can assist me to
manage and invest it into good/profitable business investment over there
after I have arrived and met you. I have decided to offer you 30% of the
total sum for your kindness, we will use part of the money for Charity
work, to help the orphanage children in the society there, then invest the
rest in any profitable business there.

kindly keep this matter only to yourself and me until we have finalized the
arrangement. I have the document and information for the claim.

Please confirm if you are ready to assist me also assure me that you will
not betray me at last. This is my telephone number: +62-83805162901, please
call me.

Dear: Jorge Lyons,

My name is Stephen Tam, a top executive in the Prime Private Bank Hong Kong. I truly value your open interest and request for more details. I will be straightforward with you and discuss only the key, essential details, one-by-one, so you can understand everything better. Please take time to read this message patiently.

1 - HERE IS THE SITUATION:

In January 2006, we lost a customer named (Elliot Benjamin Lyons). After he died, our bank investigations showed he left no written will, did not specify relatives/next-of-kin in his deposit form with us and no one has come forward to claim his money for the past 10-years running.

2 – ABOUT THE CUSTOMER AND HIS ESTATE

- Mr. Lyons was a category-A-contractor with the Hong Kong & China Gas Company Limited (TownGas). He made a (Fixed call), time-deposit of $33,000,000 with us in May 2005 which was supposed to mature in July 2006. The interest has since been stopped.

- I was then, the direct portfolio manager for his account until it went dormant. Moreover, I had a very personal and close KYC-relationship with him and I believe he had an orphanage childhood because he once told me so.

3 – THE FACTS OF THIS PROJECT

- I have personally investigated for 10-years and I now know that Mr.Elliot Lyons, has no relatives because he grew up in an orphanage home. This is my key secret and my bank do not know this.

- You bear and share the same surname with the deceased. Your profile best fits what will work in Prime Private Bank.

- The fact is, anyone who bears the surname Lyons) and has the correct information and court documents (which I now offer you), can claim this estate with my help.

- As the past asset manager of the account, I have every details and documentation relating to the asset including the late man’s bio-data records, the copy of death certificate and the copy of the certificate of deposit issued by my bank.

- I work as an active executive director and it is my direct responsibility to oversee and approve any claims relating to the late man’s estate since I was the officer-in-charge of the asset when he was alive. This is also a key advantage!

- In 30 days’ time, my bank - the Prime Private Bank (Hong Kong) Ltd) - will be legally forced to return this money to the Hong Kong government because nobody has come forward to claim it for over 10-years.

- Therefore, you and I stand the chance of working together to collect this life-changing money before 30-days or the Prime Private Bank will declare it as owner-less property and return it to the Hong Kong government.

4 – THE CLOSING PROCEDURES

- You agree to my offer. We team up and sign an agreement. I grant you access to the sensitive information and court documents required for you to file claims. You submit these to the bank.

- The bank begins its relatives-claim procedure with me as Head of the Team. With my help, you successfully complete the procedures without suspicions.

- I present you to the Prime Private Bank Board as the only surviving sibling to the late customer. You get approved. The money is paid to you. I meet with you. We share the money equally without greed.

The above is the whole picture. But I still have some other sensitive details and specifics about me, Mr.Elliot Lyons, and his estate to reveal to you but only after I convinced we are a team.

Please understand that we cannot break any law because our plans can never be discovered by anybody since only you and I know the truth. No one else can ever, ever know unless you blow the whistle. Believe me. So we must succeed.

Therefore, if you are willing and ready to work with me, let me know and I will send you the non-disclosure agreement to sign, so we can begin the project.

I am honestly looking forward to your consent in earnest so we can do this.

Hello Jeffery Lyons

We were only mandated by the Department of Relief Fund Payment of the
World Bank in conjunction with the United Nations Foreign Debts
Management through the Central Bank to contact all scam victims and
people who have lost money to some unknown people at one time or the
other, and release the equivalent sum of US$1,850,000.00 (One Million
Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars Only) to them as a relief
fund to cushion the effect of what they have lost and suffered in the
past, and to assist them stand on their feet and move on with their
normal life. It was during the routine check on individuals from USA,
United Kingdom and other selected countries from Asia, Africa, Middle
East and Europe who fall on this category that your name propped up,
hence the reason why you were listed as one of the beneficiaries. You
are among the people that we were mandated to contact to receive this
sum of US$1,850,000.00 (One Million Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand
US Dollars Only), hence our writing to you.

The The Clydesdale Bank, United Kingdom, being a reputable UK bank has
been designated to handle final remittance of this fund to the listed
beneficiaries to avoid hitches encountered by African banks in the
course of international transfers.

The ITPC fee is to enable the originating bank process and obtain the
International Transfer Permit Code that will facilitate the swift
transmission of your fund by the The Clydesdale Bank, United Kingdom
once payment instruction is relayed to them by the originating bank.
This is necessary and mandatory, as without it, there is nothing the
Bank of America can do. The originating bank has NOSTRO Account with
the The Clydesdale Bank, United Kingdom through which they made
payment to approved beneficiaries, and this Code is required to
authenticate permission by the originating bank to The Clydesdale
Bank, United Kingdom.

Instruction on how you will send this fee shall be giving you upon
receipt of your positive response to this message.

  • Subject: Further details of the investment project
  • On: May 29, 2021, 10:20 a.m.

Hello Dear Partner,

I acknowledge with a big thanks receipt of your message and appreciate your willingness to handle this investment project.

In furtherance of my proposal. I reiterate my willingness to offer you 30% of the total sum of the investment funds($27,500.000.00) while 70% is my own share and also the investment project capital. You will assist me buy a family house for me and my children in your country. In addition you will help me invest and manage a sizable part of my share in a profitable investment. The profit would be shared as stipulated below or negotiated when we meet.

After the investment projects have been successfully established under your management, the 70% of the investment future profit shall be apportioned to me while the 30% investment future profit shall be apportioned to you for your assistance for managing the investment on my behalf.

I will sincerely assure you that this project is legal and legit and you are dealing with a woman of high personality, a woman with noble qualities who loves humanity and believes in sharing, caring and affection. I am the woman who believes in the principles of sincerity, straight forwardness, generosity, peace and harmony. I have no belief in disguise despite my family's predicament that puts me in this present condition. What I honor is humanity regardless of color, race or religion.

However, I am a devoted Muslim but whole heartedly respect the believes of other people. I am an advocate of human solidarity, mutual affection, righteousness, peace and harmony as well as other noble characters that embrace human existence and lead to success of all kinds and a high degree of civilization and happiness. I am fervently impressed with dealing with you in person. More Details of me herewith stated below:

1)My Full Name: Aisha Muammar Gaddafi
2)Date of Birth: 25th December,1976
3)Hometown: Sirte
4)Place of Birth: Tripoli
5)Nationality: Libyan
6)Profession: lawyer (i studied law at Paris Diderot University)
7)Sex: Female
8)Marital Status: a widow
9)The Name of my Children: Hannibal,Muhammad and Safiya.
10)Height: 5ft,8inch
11)You can know about my family through the BBC news links below: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-19966059

I can not tell you all about me in writing, reservation until we see in person then you get to know me better. Having said that, I am more than willing to relocate to your country with my children once the funds are confirmed in your bank account. I do not have any choice of Country of investment since I am not going to manage the investment myself. I wish to be a silent partner in this transaction given my status and for security reasons. My late father's political enemies are still hunting for me, this is the reason why I have chosen to seek asylum in this Country, Burkina Faso and it is a confidential one.

I need to know your brief and precise details of your business/investment Plans, and by doing that you should tell me your ability and experience to handle the investment project in the area you have better knowledge of how to invest, where to invest and what to invest. If you do not have business/investment experience I have listed the following sectors below, you will need to consider the one you know we can establish in your country:

a) Investing in Academic Sector;
b) Real Estate management;
c) Hotel Management/Tourism;
d) Stock Management;
e) Hospital Management;
f) Commercial Agriculture;
g) Dealing on Oil and Gas;
i) Purchasing and Supplying of Gold
j) Export and Import of different manufacturing products in your country.
k) Distribution of food supplements and wellness products;
l) Manufacturing of different industrial products;
m) Commerce;
n) Personal, private and business financial/services;
o) Logistics services;
p) Development of e-services and software for third party use

More importantly as i have explained above, For security reasons and given my status, I wouldn't want this matter to be discussed over the phone because i am under strict asylum regulations facing stringent conditions and being under tight surveillance watch by the Government of this country, in addition to my explanation, i am under restriction of the followings; not making political statement, not interfere in Libyan affairs, not having access to social media network, prevented from making or receiving calls both local and international, i was imposed of a stringent traveling ban and my family members/Friends were all stopped from coming to visit me.

These conditions imposed on me have limited my access as a refugee to handle this project myself, knowing that any investment project established under my name attracts surveillance of the highest level by the Western Governments and My Father's political Enemies which probably may end up putting the established investment into a possible confiscation. To guarantee success over the release of the investment funds, you must keep this project to yourself and no account must be disclosed to anyone because it is confidential and classified. If you accept this condition we are sure of achieving this project and In order to forge ahead with this project you will have to provide your personal information so we can know each other better as well as proceed further with the project fund release to your account.

1. Your Full Name ..........
2. Current Address.............
3. Nationality..........
4. Your date of birth............
5. Your Occupation..........
6. Send me a scan copy of your Photo...
7. Your Telephone Number............

I humbly enjoin you to handle this transaction and information related to it with utmost confidentiality and on no account do you declassify it please. My life and that of my children would be at risk should you declassify this deal.

Best Regards

Yours project Partner Aisha
