Dear friend, I am a widow to the late principal accountant of Sierra Leon central bank who was assassinated due to political hostility in my country. For the sake of our lives, we fled to the neighbouring republic of Benin where we are seeking refuge until my son was evacuated to Europe recently where he is also seeking asylum. We decided to search for an external assistance because we are having problems recovering a large deposit made by our late father overseas since the company maintained that instructions left by our late husband the original depositor states that the funds be "RELEASED TO MY FOREIGN REPRESENTATIVE ONLY", believing he would appoint someone by himself to represent him for the claim but eventually he died earlier thereby making it impossible for us to go any further regarding this claim. Most importantly, your ability to put the said funds into circulation wisely for our joint interest and relocating us is a major considerable factor regarding our request as our knowledge on financial matters is not enough to handle an amount of money above (us$15,000,000.00) fifteen million alone. On your personal advise,We are also considering the below options as areas relative to our interest to put the said funds working. 1) hospitality industry 2) farming and acquisition of farmlands In view of this, if you are touched to work with us in sincerity, by standing as my late husband,s foreign representative to receive the said deposit on our behalf, we shall embrace you as our new found parent/family and will compensate you accordingly. As you indicate interest, please be fast to contact my son Levi on this email address ( samsonwulu@myway ) to enable him give you further information relative to the presence/position of funds and the steps we shall take to finalize on the project. Do not hesitate to include your personal telephone/fax numbers as this will facilitate communication between you and my son. Thanking you in advance for your kind and urgent response, more so for keeping our proposal to your self. Sincerely C.wulu --0fe1c175-8720-4b56-be04-26d327dd9565--
