I know you would be surprized to read from someone relatively unknown to you.Apart from being surprised you may be skeptical and refuse to reply back to me as one needs to be very careful due to the invasion of the internet world in recent times by dishonest people who are nothing but scammers.Most of these scams is about requesting for money to be sent to a supposed partner who is usually the originator of the transaction.But this is a different case as I will never request for money from you neither will you be sending any money to me for any reason.It is important to let you know that all I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I will be able to work with you only if you are willing to guarantee me your sincerity and honesty which is a basic foundation for mutual trust. However,at the same time,I must say that I am very uncomfortable sending this
message to you without knowing if you would misconstrue its importance and possibly decides to go public.I would therefore be holding back certain information for security reasons until you have found the time to visit both the BBC and VOA news websites below to enable you have a historical insight into what I intend sharing with you,believing that it would be of your desired interest one way or the other.
