Subject: Funds Available For Overseas Investment.
Your contact was introduced to us by the commercial counselor attached to your Embassy here and he assured us of your trustfulness and capability to handle Investment propositions.
In fact we were discussing generally on business investment opportunity in your country when the Counselor mentioned your company’s name among other names that can be trusted and relied on for capital intensive financial investment(s).
I am a Financial Consultant and represent the interest of the family of late Abu-Bakr Yunis Jabr, who was the Libyan Minister of Defence under the regime of Muammar Gaddafi.
Abu-Bakr Yunis Jabr died on 20th October, 2011 while on a car convoy with Muammar Gaddafi trying to flee from the Siege of Sirte. After the convoy was attacked by NATO aircraft he sought shelter from shrapnel in drain pipes with Gaddafi. NTC fighters finally captured him and Gaddafi.
In the later days of Libya crisis, the late defence minister revealed to his family that he had deposited the sum of US$120Million (cash) in South Africa (without the knowledge of late Gaddafi) under UN diplomatic coverage for safe keeping.
The fund in focus was transported from Libya under UN protection and deposited for safe keeping here under diplomatic status.
The cash was however deposited under false content declaration as “Law Report and Promotional Materials” belonging to one Idris Haruna Esq. (former Congolese military attachй at the UN Regional Office).
As the consultant I have the full knowledge of the substance of the transaction. I was in this context, mandated by the family to seek for your kind assistance and cooperation in respect of overseas relocation of the fund for investment without traces. The relocation process and subsequent investment of the funds overseas must not be traced to the family because of their present predicament.
Confidential handling is therefore very important in view of the continued monitoring of funds that emanated from late Muammar Gaddafi’s regime by his country authorities. In fact the family has suffered huge financial and material losses to malicious confiscation and seizures.
It is true that trust will be needed in channeling of the cash money into the banking system, and for this we are relying on our contact bank here (Standard Bank) for the transfer of the funds overseas.
Our arrangement with the bank in respect of the transaction is very solid and trustful as the bank has agreed to accommodate such quantum of cash money in their system without the relevant anti-money laundering/ terrorism documents. The bank will also inject and recycle the cash funds in the financial system and subsequently place it for bank-to-bank outflow for final transfer to any of your designated overseas account.
The bank is also sufficiently informed on the very nature and peculiar circumstances of source of the funds and will be charging substantial commission as compensation for their involvement. Although it was not easy to convince the bank to participate in the deal, we however, used our goodwill contact and relation with the bank to impress on their judgment, more so when the funds in focus lacked adequate documentation and certification from source(s).
The most important issue is your presence in South Africa to attend to the expected banking proceedings as this will help to establish a neutral beneficiary platform for the funds, thereby accomplishing the projected goal of relocating the funds overseas without traces.
While in South Africa, you will be expected to open an NGO account in our contact bank where the cash money will be deposited upon release from its present custody. You will thereafter instruct the bank to further the credit from the new NGO account opened in your favour to your choice destination account overseas (in piece –meals). More info will be given to you on the reasons for NGO account as it was strictly on the advice of our contact bank here.
We are also aware that your neutral personality as a foreigner without any previous relationship with the family of the late Abu-Bakr Yunis Jabr, remained appropriate for the relocation of the cash money overseas without traces to the embattled family. Your projected stay here in South Africa for the process will be 4 working days only when we are expected to conclude and the funds transferred accordingly and after which I will have to travel with you to the receiving account destination.
We want to assure you that there is really no fear or risk involved for with adequate due diligence here successful outcome will be guaranteed. We will endeavor to protect every interest here within the context of duty of care.
Kindly forward your private telephone number for salient voice discussion on the funds relocation into your nominated overseas bank account. Please let us discuss this matter seriously so that together we will pull the deal to fruition.
