|Dear chosen partner, |
In brief I am Mrs. Yolande Fofa from Ivory Coast. I am a widow being that I
lost my husband. My husband was a serving director of the Cocoa exporting board until his death . He was assassinated by the rebels following the political uprising. Before his death he made a deposit of Six Million USA Dollars ($6,000,000.00) in one of the famous finance/security organization here in Abidjan capital of Cote d'Ivoire. ( GLOBAL SECURITY COMPANY.)
This fund he intended to buy a cocoa processing machine. I want you to help me for us to retrieve this fund and transfer it to your account in your country or
any safer place as you will be the beneficiary and recipient of the fund . I have plans to do investment in your country, like real estate and industrial
production. This is my reason for writing to you. Please if you are willing to
assist me and my only son Francis,indicate your interest in replying soonest.
Thanks and best regards .
