this money in to your 

country where I believe it will be safe since I cannot leave the country due to the restriction of 
movement imposed on the 

members of my family by the  Government.

country.The Russian 

partners returned my husbands share .Presently, the Government has intensified their probe in to my 
husbands financial 

resources which has led to the freezing of all our accounts, local and foreign, the revoking of all 
our business licences and 

the arrest of my First son.
In view of this I want to acted very fast to withdraw this money from one of our finance houses 
before it will be closed 

down.My husband deposited the money in a finance firm for safe keeping . No record is known about 
this fund by the government 

because there is no documentation showing that we have such funds.
Further more, my elder son have been in detention in the last four years following the death of my 
late husband for charges 

of State organized murder and corrupt practices. he was just been released by the Supreme Court 
after the president brokered 

a deal with my family regarding his freedom, and he is still under interrogation about my late 
husband's assets and some 

vital documents.
Due to the current situation in the country and government attitude to my family,I cannot make use 
of this money within, thus 

I seek your help in transferring this funds out for investment than leaving the fund here and to 
invest the money to profit 

my family Bearing in mind that you may assist me.l have decided to part with 25% of the total sum.
I am seriously considering to settle down abroad in a friendly atmosphere like yours as soon as 
this fund get into your 

account so that I can start all over again if only you wish. I shall ask my son Djiba to come over 
to your country to liaise
