MISS.LACEY KABBAR. BURKINA FASO OUGADOUGOU, WEST AFRICA. Dear Friend,I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise but your contact was given to me by a reliable friend of my late father working in Burkina Faso Chambers of Commerce Industries and Agriculture, After I told him that I needed a reliable and honest business partner outside Burkina Faso.
My name is MISS.LACEY KABBAR.I am a Sierra Leonean and the dauther of the lateOsman Kabbah, former Director-General of the Government of Gold and Diamond Office (GDDO) in Freetown, my late father replaced the Lebanese business tycoon, Mr Jamil Mohamed Saheed who was sacked by the government of President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. Unfortunately, my father was attacked by rebels of the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) in Kono, Eastern Sierra Leone.
He survived the bullet wounds and was hospitalised at the Connaught Hospital in Freetown where he later died of internal bleeding, but before he died, he revealed to me that he has US$ 35.MILLION in an Iron Crate which he lodged in a security company for safe keeping in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. And he registered the contents of the box as gold and diamond which belongs to him and his foreign partner. He also confided in me that he kept the certificate of the deposit and the keys of the box in his safe.
As last month, I traced the address of the security company in Ouagadougou, Capital of Burkina Faso. Backed with the certificate and receipt of the part payment, I met the Director of the security company with the receipt for collection of the box. After thorough verifications, he agreed for the release provided I can come along with the foreign partner who is involved in the transaction.
Based on this development, I contacted a friend of my father who is working at the Chamber of Commerce to assist me to seek for a reliable, honest and well-established individual that has business foresight, he then gave me your contact as the person he believes will do a fair transaction with me.
I propose that you come as the foreign partner concerned so that we can retrieve the money from the security company.
I have decided that for all assistance and inconveniences, 20% of the total sum would be yours, while the rest of the remaining balance will be put into investment opportunities in any profitable areas you might suggest in your country or any where else.
Please keep this proposal in the most confidential manner and I assure you of our 100% risk free transaction. Please let me be informed of your decision to come so that I can work on your visa,
While I close here, I hope that Almighty will give you the power to do this transaction with me and I am waiting for your urgent responds to this letter.
Thanks so much for your co-operation. Yours Faithfully MISS.LACEY KABBAR. _________________________________________________________________MSN Hotmail sur i-mode™ : envoyez et recevez des e-mails depuis votre téléphone portable ! http://www.msn.fr/hotmailimode/
