But because of the present political problems in this country Cote d'Ivoire i want to transfer the box out of this country as i do not know what might happen next, i am honourably seeking your assistance
in the following way, To act as the foreign partner of my late father by claiming this consignment box out from the security company to your own country where we can invest it safely because my late father told me that the company will transfer it to any one I choose down to his or her country.
