Benin Republic. 
Greetings in the name of God.You will be surprise to receive this mail from a total Stranger like 
me. Anyway, I got your contact through the Internet in my search for a reliable and honest Person 
abroad who will assist me in this unbearable situation of mine. 
I am Kady Traore by name. I am 23 years old. The first child of the four children of late Colonel 
Bakassa Traore who died after being tortured by the security agents of the present government in my 
country, Cote d' Ivoire. 
My father with two of his colleagues honored an invitation for a dinner by the French ambassador 
and was invited by the security agents of president Laurent Gbagbo. They were accused of divulging 
some vital information of government of President Laurent Gbagbo to the traitors (France) they were 
mercilessly humiliated and tortured and detained. 
After their release, my father was rushed to the hospital and was kept under the care of his 
private doctor. His doctor tried all he could to save his life but he gave up the Ghost after 
spending four days in the hospital. You can view this web site for more information: 
My father, knowing very well that he would not survive, called all of us while lying on his sick 
bed and he instructed us to leave the country for Benin Republic where we are staying presently as 
our country is no longer safe for us. 
He brought out an envelope and gave to our mother and inside the envelope was a written note of 
what to do when we get to Benin Republic. We left for Benin Republic after his burial and the 
instruction from him was that he deposited the sum of USD$12.5m (Twelve million five hundred 
thousand US dollars) in a bank in Benin Republic which I am the next of kin to the fund. 
We have already gone to the bank to make confirmation and the bank manager advised that we should 
look for a trusted foreigner as the receiver of the fund in a Bank account abroad because of the 
fact that the fund was deposited in a domiciliary account of which I would only be accessible to it 
when I am 25 years.  I am seeking your assistance in the following ways. 
1) To serve as our guardian and help us with investment of the funds for our continued existence. 
(2) To be our guardian for the furtherance of our studies either in your country or elsewhere in 
the civilized World. 
We are willing to offer you 25% of the total funds as compensation for your efforts after the 
successful realization of the funds in your custody. 
We are looking forward to hearing from you, as we will furnish you with all the necessary documents 
and moral directives to facilitate the claim by you without any breach of the law. 
Be informed that we have the full co-operation of the bank manager as he has advised for proper 
confidentiality since this involves such a huge amount of money. 
 Your prompt response is highly expected. 
Ms Kady Traore.
