Subject: Dearest One
It is a good a thing to write you. I have a proposal
for you-this however is not mandatory nor will I in
any manner compel you to honour against your will.
Your profile pushed me to send you this
mail,Actually, I Sarah Camara. 21years old and
the only dauther of my late parents Mr.and Mrs.Camara.
My father was a highly reputable business magnet-(a
cocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory
coast during his days.
It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in
France during one of his business trips abroad year
12th.Febuary 2004.Though his sudden death was linked
or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an
uncle of his who travelled with him at that time.But

then my father took me so special. Before his death on
Febuary 12 2004 he called the secretary who
accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he
has the sum of Ten million,seven hundred
thousand United State Dollars.(USD$10.700,000) left in
one of the leading security company in (COTE D IVOIRE IVORY COST).
He further told me that he deposited the money in my
name,and finally issued a written instruction to his
lawyer whom he said is in possession of all the
necessary but legal documents to this fund and the
security company .
I am just 21 years old and a university undergraduate
and really don't know what to do.This is because I
have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of
incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The
death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.

in this regards.Your suggestions and ideas will be

2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question
will be good for you ?
Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as
Thank you so much.
