My name is Mr. Michel Mboma from the Republic of Ivory Coast residing temporally here in Johannesburg South Africa; I know this might be a surprise to you. I got your contact through search on line from South African Information Exchange (SAIE) I am the son of Mr. Didire Mboma from Ivory Coast who was murdered recently in Ivory Coast uprising by President Laurent Gbagbo who lost November 2010 Presidential election in Ivory Coast and refused to step down for his rival Mr. Alassane Quattara. My father was a strong supporter and second in command to Mr. Alassane Quattara and the owner of Mboma Textile Industry in Abidjan. Mr. Laurent Gbagbo ordered his troops to shoot at sight any gathering of the opposition which resulted to the murder of my father (late) Mr. Didire Mboma in January 2011 and before my fatherâs sudden death on December 2010 he came to South Africa for the purchase of arms for Mr. Alassane Quattara for it has been observed there will be use of force to get Laurent Gbagbo out of power. My father made the deposit of the money to a private security & finance company here in Johannesburg with the help of our family Attorney pending when he will finalize negotiations with South African Government for the sales of the ammunition. On his return back to Ivory Coast on January he was killed amongst other opposition members which attracted the attention of the United Nations Peace Keeping Force (UN) & African Union to immediately arrive Ivory Coast to protect Mr. Alassane Quattara and other top opposition members. My Mother was among the seven women that were shot dead on Thursday 03rd March 2011 by Mr. Laurent Gbagboâs forces in Abidjan.

The amount in question is (US$18,000,000.00) (Eighteen Million United States Dollars) the money was deposited in my name as the beneficiary by my (late) father as if he knew he was going to die soon.
