Subject: Hello my dear
Hello Dear Chosen one,
Please excuse me for all the inconveniences my mail could cause you. I saw your profile and have the interest to contact you. Please even if we never knew before, I believe firmly that on the basis of the right of humanitarian assistance that a real confidence and love can arise from our
communication and also a real partnership between us.
I am Miss Konan Crystal, the legitimate daughter of the Director of cocoa export here murdered by the rebel痴 here because of the political crisis going on here since four years ago.
My father had deposited a consignment with a security company here containing the sum of $9.000, 000 USD (Nine million dollars USD) to allow him to conceive a project of investment at the end of his mandate here.
Regrettably the fate decided on it otherwise.
Today my major concern is to move out this sum outside here. Given that I am the only child and I have seriously suffered from the riggings and the harassments on behalf of the political opponents of my Father.
It is in this prospect that I contact you to please help me to move this heritage from the security company to your country.
Because of the political war and the hostilities in this country I seriously wish to leave from here and live the rest of my life in a more peaceful and politically more stable and quiet country. It is what justifies this demand.
I shall voluntarily agree on a good and appropriate percentage of this money as your compensation for your assistant as for what precedes.
I would like to count on your human, virtuous and professional qualities.
I look forward to receive your urgent responds.
Thanks for your care.
Miss Konan Crystal
