From : Joy Mokowa,Dear Sir,It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I intend to establish in your country. Though I have not met with you before but considering the recent political instabilities in my country, I believe one has to risk confiding in success sometimes in life. There is this huge amount of Eight million U.S dollars($8,000,000.00) which my late Father deposited in a bank in Abidjan-Cote d'lvoire, before he was assasinated by unknown persons during this present war in Cote d'ivoire.Now I have decided to invest these money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside my country for security and political reasons. l want you to help me claim and retrieve this money from the bank and transfer it into your personal bank account in your country for investment purposes on these areas below : 1). Telecommunication2). Transport Industry 3) Mechanised agriculture.If you can be of any assistance to me, l will be pleased to offer to you 15% of the
total fund, and 25% will be for you annually from the profit of the partnership company we are to open. I await for your kind consideration to my plight.Thanks and remain bless.Miss Joy Mokowajmokowa25@yahoo.fr
