Very Urgent Please
I am Mrs. Mary Clement, from Ivory Coast. I am a widow; I lost my husband a couple of months ago. My husband was a serving director of the Cocoa exporting board until his death. He was assassinated last year by rebels following the political crisis in our country. Before his death, he has an account in a bank here in Ivory Coast, containing the sum of $9.5 Million which he reserved for the import of cocoa processing machines. The board has no trace of this money since this is in his private bank account. I want you to do me a favour to receive these funds to a safe account in your country or any safer place as the beneficiary.. I have plans to investment in your country, like in real estate and in industry for production. This is my reason for making this contact; please, if you are willing to assist me and my only son, indicate your interest by replying soon. I will compensate you with 15% of the money as it is transferred, while I will set aside 3% to cover all incidental expenses that may arise in the course of actualising this transaction. Best regards.Mrs. Mary Clement
