My Dear,
I pray that this email reaches you in the best of health. This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet meet. The message could be strange but it's real and you will realize this if you pay some attention to it. I want to notify you about it at least for the sake of your integrity. 
I was totally convinced to write you in reference of the transaction of a consignment box of Five million united states dollars (US$5,000,000.) to your country destination for onward investment in a good lucrative business for the benefit of the both of us.

First and foremost and brief self introduction, I am Miss Sharon Kouame, 23years old and the only daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs. Dave Kouame.
My father was a highly reputable business magnate-(a cocoa merchant ) who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad  7Th  September 2007. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time.But God knows the truth!
My mother died when I was just 11 years old,and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on September  7Th  2007 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told her that he had a sum of (.US$5,000,000.) US dollars ( Five million united states dollars ) in a trunk box deposited in a security company here in Abidjan, Ivory Coast as family valuables for security reasons.
He also said he used my name to deposit the consignment with the security company as his only daughter, as well as the next of kin to the consignment.
He also explained to!  me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his uncle, That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money to and use it for investment purposes.
I want you to assist me in clearing this consignment as i explain to you that this consignment was deposited in the security company as family valuables .
I am just 23 years old and a university undergraduate student and really don't know what to do. Now I want an account overseas where I can transfer this funds. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.
Dearest one, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.
Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help me ?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your account?
Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible,
Thank you so much.
My sincere regards,
Miss Sharon Kouame
