Subject: Hello Dear, CAN YOU BE MY SUPERVISION PARTNERS ?
CAN YOU BE MY SUPERVISION PARTNERS ?
complements of the seasons, how was your day after daily stress? i hope
you're good and your family.
My name is Elizabeth D.Tinambacan,The wife of Rev. Jemias Tinambacan who
was the Deputy Secretary General of Bayan Muna party-list group in Southern
Tagalog. who is recently attack and killed in philippine on the 27 may 2006.
Before my late husband was killed, I inherited sum total of ($14,000.000
USD. Fourteen Million USDollars) from some cocoa business import we made
with my late husband, this money which my late husband put in a metallic
trunk box and deposited it in a security and finance company in Cote D'
Ivoire. This deposit was coded under a secret arrangement as a family
treasure. This means that the security company does not know the content of
this trunk box.
My main purpose of sending you this mail is because of the way I found you
and perhaps trustworthy to give you this priority of shipping the box of
money to any address that you think is very secure and save in your country.
I hope to trust you as who will not seat on this money when you claim it. i
made up my mind to give you 25% of the total money for your help, after you
have secured the box for my kids future. Hopping to hear from you soon.
Elizabeth D. Tinambacan.
