more) of their e-mails a week. However, I am sending you one below

ATTN : MANAGING DIRECTOR
I am writing this letter out of a genuine desperation to find a reliable
partner in the unfolding transaction. I have been unjustly treated by my
partner in a transaction so,I seek your help, attention and genuine
co-operation to our mutual benefit and 1 believe that you will not let
down the trust and confidence 1 am about to repose on you.
Iam Mr.Smith kone.,from COTE D IVOIRY and for the past ten years, I have
been working in a public Relations firm that pays me about two hundred
dollars each month. On the 30th of June, our company made a Very big
financial breakthrough when we made contact with ALHAJI.C.G MUSTAFAR
and began to supply him his cow vaccine named LIM KXT COW VACCINE.
ALHAJI.C.G MUSTAFAR is THE PRESIDENT OF MUSTAFAR GROUP COMPANY )He is a millionaire farmer with CATTLE FARMS in all part of AFRICA , and a new one located at ZIMBABWE. Moreover, he is the greatest supplier of cattle beef and other dairy products to the whole of West Africa. HE
had informed us about the huge amount of money he spends on the purchase
of a particular but very important cattle medicine. Precisely, he buys
US$ 5,000 per carton. He asked if our organization can source for a
We did market research and discovered that we can buy these vaccines in
Europe for US$2,000 per carton. We moved a proposal to MUSTAFAR GROUP
COMPANY, to supply him at US$4,800 per carton, which they accepted. As
these supplies progressed and our company is doing fine, I requested
to my boss for an increase in our salary. He was so upset that he
wanted to sacked me without benefits and ten years of dedicated
I was so desperate that I went to the MUSTAFAR GROUP COMPANY farms and
informed ALHAJI.C.G MUSTAFAR that I have a foreign contact that will be
willing to supply him this same products at US$4,400. Per carton.
ALHAJI.C.G MUSTAFAR in turn confided to me that he is about to place
order for one thousand cartons following a suspected outbreak of disease
in his farms. I assured ALHAJI.C.G MUSTAFAR that my foreign contact will
be in the position to manufacture and supply to him, infact I convinced
him that my former boss usually buy from my foreign contact and that is
why he sales to him at a higher price. HOWEVER,I INFORMED ALHAJI.C.G
MUSTAFAR THAT HE WILL HAVE TO PAY CASH IN ADVANCE BEFORE MY FORIEGN CONTACT WILL SUPPLY TO HIM. For the moment he has stopped all contact with my boss. Please consider on how to handle this profitable Project and kindly contact me immediately on my number 00225 07 68 27 28 for
details and negotiations as regards my commission. However, I will
insist that my commission will be 20% of the total profit.
Note: We will buy one thousand cartons at US$2,000,000. We sell to them
at US$4,400,000 Dollars; our client pays cash before lifting of the
goods. (They must not know our purchase point in Europe).
Thanks and God bless you.

Name: Khin Myint Lwin
I apologize for the unexpected nature of this mail. I got your e-mail
address from the Thailand intercontinental peace group.
I am Khin Myint Lwin, 55, Chinese/Burmese, and the leader of the Myanmar
Kyone Yeom Group headquartered in Mong Yawn, Myanmar. We engage in Real
Estate, food processing and the transportation of Chinese, Thai and Burmese
migrant workers to destinations around the globe.
I am writing you from my Yangoon home where I await my appeal case against a
37 years jail sentence I received for alleged human trafficking, illegal
sale of gold and running a prostitution ring. I am currently under house
arrest. My appeal hearing is set for December 2003.
These are all trumped-up charges. One of my boats carrying migrant workers
to Singapore last year was hit by waves and sank killing 87 passengers.
It was an accident but the government used this to arrest me because they
suspected me of funding the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA), a rebel
movement fighting for the rights of the Karen ethnic group in Myanmar.
The government has also seized most of my assets valued at nearly one
Billion dollars ($973,000,000.00) in Myanmar, Thailand and
My wife and three daughters (8,12,14) are now staying with my mother in-law
in Mandalay. They now face a severe disruption in their livelihood and the
education of my daughters is in jeopardy. This feels me with so much pain.
My wife and daughters are my main concern right now.
I have a cash account deposit I made in the Netherlands, which the Burmese
government didn't know about. When I liquidated my flower and electronic
companies in the Netherlands in 2002, I deposited the proceeds of Eleven
million dollars ($11,000,000.00) in a securities firm in the Netherlands
while I was negotiating the take-over of a telecom company in Germany.
Right now, I need this money so I could get the best lawyer for my appeal
case coming up in December and most of all get my family out of Myanmar to a
safer country. They face constant harassment from government agents.
I need your assistance to get some of this money through to my wife and
daughters who are in Mandalay, Myanmar. Your responsibility will be to
assume the new ownership of the money. Transfer this money into your own
account for safety first.
You will keep 20% for your efforts. You will then send my share in bits as I
direct you to my mother-in-law or my wife in Myanmar. This will enable my
family to leave Myanmar. I can also get the best lawyer and lobby power and
most possibly be free soonest.
If you decide to help me, what you have to do is send me your full Name,
Address, Date of Birth, and Nationality. Use the e-mail address above.
I will contact the securities company in the Netherlands and have the
ownership changed to yours. I can do this online and via email. Luckily, I
can monitor the status of my deposit via the Internet with my login info.
When all is done, the company will contact you about your new status. They
will tell you what to do. Most of their transactions can also be done
online. After that, you carry out the directives as explained above.
If you do this, I will be personally grateful to you in many ways. Not only
in the 20% of ($11M) reward you will get, but also when I am free, as I know
I will soon, I will show you what it means to do me a favor.
If you can't, or decide not to, I will understand. Thanks for your attention

I received three responses even one from a former employee
of Wasco. He gave me the phone number for my lessee to call at Citi to get
his letter of termination in lieu of the UCC-3 filing. Your newsletter
really does have a great following.
