I am Mr Raymond Aboki Mbosowo the eldest son of Chief Aboki Mbosowo from Sierra Leone.
I am writing you in absolute confidence primarily to seek your assistance to transfer our cash of Eight Million and five hundred thousand Dollars
And now the money is under the custody of a private Security trust firm in Dakar Senegal the money is in trunk boxes deposited and declared as Precious stones by my late father as a matter of fact the company does not know the content as money,
although my Father made them to understand that the boxes belongs to his foreign partner.
Source of the money:My late Father Chief Aboki Mbosowo is a native of Mende tribe in the
Northern province of Sierra Leone, was the General Manager of Sierra Leone Mining co-operation (S.L.M.C.) Freetown .
According to my Father this money was the income accrued from Mining Co-operation's over draft and minor sales.
Before the peak of the civil war between the rebels forces of Major Paul Ngaga and the combined forces of ECOMOG peace keeping operation that almost
destroyed my country,
following the forceful removal from power of the civilian elected President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah by the rebels.
My Father had already made arrangement for his family to be evacuated to Dakar Senegal with the CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT he made with a security firm in Dakar Senegal through the aid of U.N evacuation team.
During the war in my country and following the
indiscriminate looting of Public and Government properties by the rebel forces, the Sierra Leone mining coop was one of the target looted and it was destroyed.
My Father including other top Government functionaries were attacked and killed by the
rebels in November 2000 because of his relationship with the civilian Government of Ahmed Tejan Kabbah.
As a result of my fathers death and with the information we got that the rebels are out for us the burden became too much for me to handle coupled
with the ill health of my mother which resulted to her death along the process as I could not afford her a decent medical care.
The unrest in Sieria-leon and the threat from the rebels against our lifes, made us to be evacuated to DAKAR SENGAL last December where I and my family are seeking political asylum, we are at present in an
Refgue camp in Dakar(Sengal)
