Dear, I am Olivia Guei;the Daughter of an ex military/ex head of state in COTE D`IVOIRE. On the 19th sept 2002 my father and some members of our family was killed by the unknown REBELS during the time they attack our house by shooting and looting, even this is one of the things that contributed to the present crisis in our country today. God so kind, I was not in town when the incident occurred,then i was in burden school in Ghana doing my secondary education.The plans of the REBELS is to kill every members of our family so that no one will rise up to revenge as time goes on.You can read about these here: 1:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2268718.stm 2:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2267971.stm 3:http://www.guardian.co.uk/international/story/0,3604,795364,00.html 4:news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2269238.stm My mother later died in 2008 after a brief illness,i am left alone with my younger brother Michel Guei and only the two of us are surviving since then catering for our education and living,without the support and assistance of family relatives. Again in 2010 October,post electoral crisis started,which lead to 4 month brutal war,that killed many people.However,it lead to the removal of president Laurent Gbagbo the incumbent.He was the president in power during the brutal killing of my late father General Robert Guei and some members of our family.Presently,he is under arrest and the country is now under a new president Allasane Quatara.He is a well known man by the international community.But reconciliation processes is still going on there are some Laurent Gbagbo men,still in Exile in Ghana and other country for fear of being killed by the ruling force FRCI(Force Republican de Cotedivoire). You can read this on this webpage aswell: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-11916590 The reason I still stay back in our country is to transfer the $5.5mUSD which my late father,deposited in one of the Foreign Bank here in Abidjan Ivory coast West Africa, which he disguised and declared as fund belonging to his Foreign Business partner,but he did not disclose any contact or name to them,that was for security purpose to avoid raising eyebrow. Before the death of my father he gave us the covering documents of the fund deposited in the bank as I am his first daughter and he so much loved me that was why he made me the beneficiary of the fund deposit. Right now I wish to transfer this fund to your Account so that you will assist i and my brother to invest the money into any viable investment in your country, also you will help us to join you in your country for us to start up a new life with you there immediately the fund gets to you. Since we are no longer safe as far as Africa is concern at the moment, I wanted to transfer the fund before leaving the country because this fund is our last hope and the only hope we have now. Before I even pick you to assist me I have prayed and slept over it asking God to provide for me a Godly minded person that will assist us in this transaction. please if you are willing to assist me, do send in your reply immediately based on the following: (1) I want to offer you 15% of the total amount,however i want to know percentage of this amount do you intend to charge for your assistance, please feel free to express your mind.
