It's my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I and my only Son,intend to establish in your country, Though I have not met with you before but I believe,one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed
sometimes in life.
There is this huge amount of Eigtheen million U.S dollars ($18,000,000.00) which my late Husband deposited in one of the prime banks here in Abidjan before he was assasinated by unknow gangs.Now me and my only survived son decided to invest these money in your country or any where
safe enough outside Africa for security and political reasons.
We want you to help us to transfer this fund to your country for
investment purposes on the followings below:
2). Automobile manufacturing
3). Five star hotel
If you you can be of an assistance to us we will be pleased to offer to you 15% Of the total fund.Extend my warmest regards to your family.
I await your soonest response..
Thank you and God bless you.
