  May the grace and peace of our lord be with you and the entire members of your family  as you peruse the content of this mail in Jesus name,(Amen).
  My name is MR Dennis Rogers and I am from sierra-leone. I have detailed below a brief intro about my predicament, with the hope that you will help me. My father was the head of royal family that controlled the land where diamond and Gold are mined in sierra-leone. He was killed by the united revolutionary front rebel.(U.R.F) and our house was set ablaze,but before our house was set ablaze and in the course of the confusion I ran inside the house hoping to save some of our family assets and discover among my father's personal belongings a certificateof deposit which reveal to me that my father has some money to the tune of 150
Million USD deposited with a Storage Company in Lome Togo.
  I escaped to Benin Republic a neigbouring Country to Togo as I lost every other
member of my family in the fracas that ensued  and having been living as a Refugee in a Refugee camp here. Now I am looking/seeking for a God fearing fellow , a foreigner to whom this monies can be transferred  into his/her personal bank account for safekeeping and to be used for a profitable yielding joint business venture. I have decided to give 25% of total amount to anyone that decided to help me and 10% for any expenses that may occur during the transaction and the rest 65% will be invested in any profitable business in your
country to be managed by you for a duration of five years.
I look forward for your quick reply in anticipation.
MR Dennis Rogers.
