Viviane AND James Mark,
Good-day to you and all the members of your family. I am Viviane Mark
From the republic of Sierra Leone I was studying of mass -communication in
the university before the sudden death of our father, while my younger
brother James was doing Electrical Enger,that was stopped because of our father death, as our uncle decided not to take care of our education again,
after confiscating all our fathers properties. Presently we are in Cote
D'Ivoire where our late father deposited the sum of Ten million united states
dollars in a financial institution here, as our uncle was not aware of
the deposit. It was the intention of our late father to invest this money
abroad, hence he informed us at his hospital bed before he died and we
want through you, to accomplish this aim, so that his spirit can rest in
Since our arrival here we have gone to the f inancial institution to
confirm the deposit as the really confirmed it. We contacted you based
on the agreement reached between the institution and our late father, so
that you can act as our foreign partner to enable them release this deposit
to you, for an investment in your country, while we come over to continue
our education. Please we have agreed to offer you 20% of the total fund for
your willingness to assist us invest this money in your country. Do
contact us as soon as possible as we had the intention to come over to your
country as soon as possible.
