Greetings to you.I thank God that I have come across you and believe you will not turn down my request.My name is Jude Amah,I am 17 years old.I am from Bouke in Cote D'ivoire,west Africa.I became an orphan last year when my father and my mother were murdered in Bouke in the northen part of Cote D'ivoire my home town.I was in school when the rebel new force went on rampage and killed people in the town suspected for supporting the government of Gbagbo.I was taken from the school by a good samaritan to Abidjan,where I am taking refuge.I am now staying with the old woman I called aunty,she is 57 years old and she has been trying here best for me. I am confused as to what to do to claim my late father's deposit in a bank in Abidjan here.He deposited a sum of $6,200,000 (Six million Two hundred Thousand dollars ).This deposit was to be sent to his business partner in Europe but since the crisis they lost contact and I dont know about him and I dont know about theire transaction before he died.I am appealing to you in the name of God to help me provide a bank account so that I can transfer this money into and a safe place for me to move to after the transfer. I believe you are a reliable person that will not sit on the money and will provide a safe place where I can move to continue my studies.I promise to give you 8% of the total amount when the transfer is made.That will cover all your inconveniences and if you make any expenses while helping me. Please send to me your telephone no.and let me know if you can reliably keep this only thing I have left in life with you safely. Thanks, Jude Amah
