Subject: I WANT TO INVEST IN YOUR COUNTRY!!!
Good a thing to write you. I have a proposal for you-this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will. I am AISHA KONE.22 years old and the only child of my late parents Mr & Mrs.MUSTAPHA KONE.
My father was a highly reputable businness magnet-(a cocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in Belgium during one of his business trips abroad year 25th.Febuary 2006.
Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 4 years old,and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on 25th.Febuary 2006 he called me and told me that he had a sum of 22.700,000 US DOLLARS (Twenty-two. seven) MILLION USA DOLLARS)kept in a security company in (AFRICA).
He also said that the security company does not know the content of the safe Box.He decleared it as family treasure and used my name to Deposit the Box as his only child for next of kin. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business assocaites, That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money to and use it for investment purposes.
I want you to assist me in clearing this box from the security company and then transfering the fund inside the box into your account overseas as a beneficiary of the fund, and also use it for an investment purpose.
I am just 22 years old and really don't know what to do.Now I want a trusthful person to come to my aid in securing the release of the consignment from the security company. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.
Dearest one,I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.
Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help me as your child or your futur partner?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your country?
Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible.
Thanks and GOD mercy
and abundant blessings
