Dearest One,
     l am Martins Kone ,19 yrs old. l saw your profile and that was why l decided to write to you. l was in high school in Ghana studying mass communication. My father Late Mr William Kone  was a cocoa merchant here in Cote d'lvoire before his sudden death.
l have been a pet to my parents and they took good care of me as the only child of the family. Things were moving fine for us until the sudden death of my father on 20th March 2005 in a private hospital. But two days to his death, he called me privately in the hospital and gave me some documents, he told me that he deposited some large sum of money in a bank in Abidjan.  He was saying as if he will die,l was very shocked and he continued that l should find a honest person from another country to assist me receive this money to his account in the person's country for me to invest and continue  life,finally he said that this is the only treasure he kept because the hospital bill took everything.
      The doctor finally told us that he died out of food poisoning, this news caused a heart attack to my mother and she died on 7th June 2006. l have no other place to go because my uncle pushed me away and was after my life, and took over my father's property in Duala City. The farm was repossesed by the government pending future allocation of management and i have to sale the car to stay in a hotel for now.
So l  am on the run for my life,l am still in the hotel looking for an honest person that will assist me in recieving this money into his bank account in his country and, then send some money to me to come over and continue my education.  l will not hesitate to send to you the documents of the funds as soon as l receive your e mail.
     l have told no body about this until l saw your profile and something in me touches me to tell you hoping that you will assist me and take care of me. And l believe that you will assist me. l will give you 15% of the total money for your kind assistance, because l want this money to leave here due to some political crisis going on now and l cant disclose this to my uncle or anybody caused am now scared of what people can do. l hope you will be of immense help to me. l will only disclose the banking details and the amount to be transferred to you, if I am satisfied that you can be trusted when you reply. And please be honest with me.
l want you to send me your full contact with your banking details.
l will be waiting to hear from you soonest.
Martins Kone.
