From Miss Dora Manga Williams
I am Miss Dora Manga Williams from Ivory Coast. I'm 20 years old, the only
daughter of my Late parents Mr & Mrs Manga Williams. I want to ask for your
help.I lost my mother at the age of 10 and my father was poisoned to death
during his visit to our home town for a family meeting 8 February 2006. Before
the death of my late father he told me that he deposited the sum of
7.2 million states dollars in a Security Company here in Ivory Coast of
which my name was used as the next of kin . But due to the political problem
here and the reason behind my parents death I will not wish to stay here
again for now.
Papa has 2 three story buildings in the city of Buoake and a 5 miles of
cocoa plantation in our village from where he made his money both as as
producer and a produce buyer but all has been confiscated by my late uncle
who told me that if i should ask of my late father's properties again he
will use the african witch craft to render me useless and make sure that he
will infest me with a disease which i will never recover in life again.
I am now staying with the Pastor of our church who happens to know all
about my late uncle and the family i come from .
According to our tradition when a man is about to give up in his
sickness his immidiate brothers are called to be at his bed side and they
ussually lock the door until when he gives up the ghost before they can come
out to annouce his pass away.
It was during this period that uncle Micheal breaked his personal cupboard
and saw the documents of the buildings and the cocoa plantation farm land
Please i am asking for your kind assistance to help me transfer this fund
to your country so that i can join you to continue my education which is
very important to me and also you can help me in investing the fund in a
good and moving business in your country and stay by my side to give me out
for marraige to whom i will love and you will give your blessings so as to
bring out kids to bear my late parents names

in assisting me,I need your full contact informations (Name,Address and
telephone number) I will give you more details on how to bring fruitful of
