Subject: My Dear
It's my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which intend to establish in your country. Though I have not met with you before but I believe that one have to risk sometimes to confide in someone to succeed in life.
I am the only surviving daughter of my parents. There is this huge amount of money which my late father Dr. Anthony Epunam deposited in a private security/finance company here in Abidjan Cote d'ivoire before he was assasinated by unknown persons. The said amount is $9,000,000 USD (Nine million United States Dollars) in a trunk box and was deposited as our family valueable items in the security CompanyRight now, i took refuge in a church convent but i will tell you more about that as we go on.
Now I have decided to invest these money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside Cote d'ivoire Africa for security and political reasons. I will like you to be sincere and honest with me in this project. So i want you to assist me to retrieve this fund and transfer it to your country for investment purposes on the following areas below:
2). Automobile manufacturing
3). Five star hotel
If you will be willing and honest to assist me in this project, I promise to give you 15% of this fund for your assistance and 5% for any expenses that may occur during the cost of this project; If you are willing to help me and try as much as possible to reach me through this email to enable us proceed in earnest towards concluding of this project,
Please treat this project as a matter of confidential until the money arrives your country. This is for the safety of the money and security reasons.
Thank you and God bless you.
Miss Velintina Epunam.
