Hello My Dearest, Please your urgent help is needed. Email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please, I beg of you not to get annoyed of me for this disturbing message and I kindly ask of your permission to explain myself to you. I know that it is not it is not safe for me to communicate with you over the internet, but I have no other choice and means of reaching to you except via this medium as it is the only thing I can lay hand on as means of contacting you.
I am Miss Aaren Ibrahim Coulibaly, and I am 23 years old female from the Republic of Ivory Coast, in West Africa, I'm the Daughter of Late Chief Ibrahim Coulibaly (also known as General I.B). My late Father was a well known Ivory Coast military leader. He died on Thursday 28 April 2011(a date I will never forget in my life) and this was as a result of a fight with the Republican Forces of Ivory Coast (FRCI). You can read more about my father in the link below:
I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment which I am receiving from my step mother. She planned to take away my entire late father's treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father, because my mother died during child bearing and I was left alone with my step mother to take care of me. Meanwhile I wanted to travel to Europe, but she hideaway my traveling documents. Fortunately she did not discover where I kept my father's File which contained important documents like the will and deposit certificate of my Father's fund which bears my name as the next of kin to inherit the money in his foreign bank account. Due to her aggressions on me, I decided to snick away to Republic of south Africa, Now I am presently staying in the South African Refugee Mission Camp, I am seeking for long term relationship and investment assistance. My father of blessed memory deposited the sum of US$20.5 Million in his foreign bank account with the First National bank of South Africa (FNB) with my name as the next of kin of the fund.
I have contacted the Bank here in South Africa to clear the deposit but the head of the bankâs international wire-transfer Manager told me that my late father place an instruction on the deposited fund that I must present a foreign trustee who will help me for investment of the fund, just due to my age.
Finally my dear beloved, my reason of contacting you is just because I decide to seek for your help in transferring the money into your bank account while I will relocate to your country and settle down with you or your family. As you indicate your interest to help me, I will give you the account number and the contact details of Bank branch manager where my late beloved father deposited the money with my name as the next of kin. It is my intention to compensate you with 25% out of the total money after the transfer and extra 5% for any expenses you will be incurred, for your assistance and the balance shall be my investment in any profitable venture which you will recommend to me as I have no idea about foreign investment. Please all my communications with you should be through email address: â..for confidential purposes for now and I will provide you with my numbers once I managed to get any phone with me.
Thank you as I wait for your positive response. And please extend my greetings to your family at large.
