name is Mr. Aazim Adam from the Republic of Sudan residing temporary
here in Johannesburg , South Africa as an asylum seeker (Refugee). I
know this might be a surprise to you. I got your contact through search
online from South African Information Exchange (SAIE).
am the son of Mr. Omar Defala Adam from Darfur-Sudan. My father was the
owner of Omar Sea Food Industry & Omar Farm Land in Darfur Region.
When the Government discovered that Darfur region is rich on Oil and
Mineral Resources, and the Organization Rebel Movement stepped into
Darfur to occupied those areas Oil was discovered and those areas
happens to be my father's landed properties. You can view;
and the Rebels started fighting over who will inherit the Darfur Region
because of the Oil discovered. It was unfortunate that my father was
killed on the process by the Rebels in order to inherit the land and
all my father's companies were burnt down.
then my father had moved US$18.2 Million United States Dollars to South
Africa for establishment of another branch of his companies. The fund
was deposited in a private security & finance company in my name
kareem Adam as the beneficiary. Upon his return from South Africa he
was murdered in cold blood by the Rebel Movement.
the Rebel Movement turned against the remaining family members of my
father and my Mother as old as she is ordered me and my younger sister
Amina Adam to leave immediately for South Africa to meet with my family
Attorney who assisted my (late) father when the funds were deposited
and we left without any delay for Johannesburg, South Africa. South
African Monetary Regulations on Refugees does not allow us any rights
in view of that, we would appreciate your involvement as our foreign
partner in order to move these funds out from here on your name.
you be interested to assist us in moving this money out from South
Africa since our status as asylum seekers (Refugees) does not allow the
transfer of the funds in my name, the family will offer you 25% of the
total amount, 5% will be mapped out to balance any expenses incurred,
while 70% will be for my family and will be invested in your country
under your management.
We would appreciate your
immediate response to this message through this email
kareem_Adam2000@hotmail.com and call me through the telephone number
indicated above anytime. Thanking you for your anticipated co-operation
(For the Family).
