Dear One, I am a girl of 19 years old, my name is MISS CEIL DABA citizen of cote d'Divoire, a university student studying law to become a lawyer after graduating. I have a very bad problem now and that is why i am contacting you for an urgent assistance.
My mother died of (T/B) Tuberculosis years back. My father is late MR AHMAD DABA. my father was a well known politician here in cote d' ivoire. You may heard over the BBC OR CNN concerning the political crisis happening here, and last year the election of the country was canceled because of some problem that is going on even till today. This is to tell you how my country is now I thank God that i was not at home when what i am about to tell you happened but it was a deep shock to me and also what i do not think that i can forget so easily. Is about my father's death my father was murdered in our house here by unknown people but after a year now i come to realise that it was the hand work of the great people in power who master minded the act. I can not fight them so i leave vengeance to God.
Now it is like my father knew what was going to happen because he call me one day and told me that he has $6.5million us dollars with a bank here in Abidjan for safe keeping only. And he told me that he use my name as next of kin to that money, but warned me not to tell any body about this. He told me that he deposited this money as a fixed deposit account for 5 years. Now i seek your urgent help to have this money transferred to your country from the bank as my late father's partner in business, and also to help me get resident permit to come and live with you in your country and further my education there. while you will help me to invest the money in your country since i do not know anything concerning business.
This transaction is 100% risk free and we are to discuss on the percentage which you are to take from the total money for your urgent help after confirming that you will assist in this soonest.
Thanks as you reply urgently.
MISS CEIL DABA
