I hope you are aware of the war which has ravaged my country for the past years now. It was in one of these attacks by the rabels that led to the death of my father and my mother including two of my brothers.
I was terrified of the situation and because this I escaped  from Sierra-Leone to Abidjan Cote D' Ivoire (Ivory Coast),into a refugee camp but brouth along with all vital document which my late father used in depositing consignment that contain the sum of  $20 Million United State Dollars with a private security
company firm here in Abidjan Cote D' Ivoire (Ivoire Coast).
For now, I have every information and document needed for collection of the deposit with the security conpany and I want you to act as the beneficiary of the deposit for easy and smooth collection of the consignment for onward transfers to your account abroad for investment popurses.

My aim of contacting you is to seek for your able assistance as a front in trasfering this fund abroad into an account,then as a business devoloper,you can help me invest wisely in areas you deem lucrative and finally to obtain residential permit for me to stay comfortable in your country of abode.
