FROM ROSE GUEI
Abidjan cote D`Ivoire
I am the first duaghter of an ex military/ex president
been an opposition party to the present Government of
COTE D`IVOIRE. On the 19th sept 2002 my father/mother
including every members of our family was murdered by
the unknown REBELS during the time they attack our
house by shooting and looting, even this is one of the
things that contributed to the present crisis in our
God so kind I was not in town when the incident
occurred, the plans of the REBELS is to kill every
members of our family so that no one will rise up to
revenge as time goes on. I am in our country without
any one knowing although I am on hiding so that the
unknown REBELS will not get to me and kill me like
they killed all the members of our family. Why I still
stay back in our country is to transfer the $18.5mUSD
which my late father deposited in the custody of
one of the SECURITY ASSISTANCE COMPANY,here in Abidjan,he
deposited the fund as a family treasure containing
AFRICAN ART WORK FOR EXPORT for security reasons, as
security company does not operate as bank where some
one can deposit his/her money openly.
Before the death of my father he gave me the covering
documents of the fund deposited in the security
company, as I am his first duaghter and he so much
loved me that was why he made me the beneficiary of
the two iron trunk boxes containing the $18.5mUSD.
Right now I wish to transfer this fund to you so that
you will assist me to invest the money into any viable
sector in your country, also you will help me to join
you in your country for me to start up a new life with
you there immediately the fund gets to you. since I am
no longer safe as far as Africa is concern at the
moment, I wanted to transfer the fund before leaving
the country because this fund is my last hope and the
only hope I have now.
Before I even pick you to assist me I have prayed and
slept over it asking God to provide for me a Godly
minded person that will assist me in this transaction.
I will give you more details of the transaction in my
next mail. contact= firstname.lastname@example.org
e_Awaiting to here from you.
Thanks and God bless you.
