Dear Friend, I am Toure Conte, the son of late president Lansana Conte, the late president of Guinea. I am 25 years old and a graduate of Business Administration. I know that with mere mention of Guinea, most people will think that this is another scam but that is not true as we are merely looking for someone that can help us out of our present predicament. My father was the late President of Guinea. He was in charge of reviving royalties from the multi-national companies and government on behalf the producing companies in Guinea. my father suffered long illness like chain smoking and diabeties and died in December 23rd 2008 last year. But before his death, he called me and told me he has some money running into a few millions of dollars which he personally deposited in a Security firm. He advised me not to tell anybody except my mother who is the last wife of the (4) four wives that he married. It is this known fact that made my father to advice that we contact his lawyer for the relevant documents of the said money which he has also briefed him and told me that I should use this money with my mother and my younger sisters because he knows that traditionally, if he dies we cannnot get anything as inheritance. He further advised that I should seek for foreign assistance and that I should not invest this money here in Guinea because of his other wives and children who happen to be my elders. I am soliciting for your immediate assistance to get a House for us, where I will live with my mother and two younger sisters and further advise me where and how I will invest the balance money overseas. But we are currently in Nigeria now, through the assistance of ECOWAS countries which President Yar'adua is the Chairman. I believe that by the special grace of God, you will help us move this money out of the security firm to any country of your choice where we can invest this money judiciously with you. You are going to be entitled to a reasonable part of this money based on our agreement and God will bless you as you help us. Looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible through my private e-mail address: email@example.com Please let me have your telephone number for easy communication Telephone: +234-7069661133 Regards Toure Lansana Conte
