The sender was "SCOLLA H.Sahili" <email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
Please permit me to introduce myself formally as Scolla H.Sahili, hail from western region of Darfur in Sudan but presently taking refugee in OUAGADOUGOU , BURKINA-FASO. I do not know all about you as I am obliged to seek into the confines of your heart and bring to your knowledge on how helpful your assistance matters to my future.
My late father Dr. Mandey Sahili, former Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Gold and Cotton Corporation of Sudan, died as a result of a power struggle between President Umar al-Bashir and the ousted parliament speaker Hasan al-Turabi, the main ideologue of Sudanâs Islamist government, while my mother died as a result of hypertension after our arrival to OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA-FASO.
It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I intend to establish in your country. Though I have not met with you before, but I believe one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes in life. There is this family treasure box that contains a very huge amount of fifteen million, five hundred thousand dollars ($15.5million) which my late mother deposited in a Global security company here in OUAGADOUGOU , BURKINA-FASO. Upon our arrival.
Now I have decided to invest this money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside Africa due to security and political reasons. I want you to help me claim and retrieve this family treasure box from the custody of the security company and transfer it to your country for investment purposes in these areas:
If you can be of an assistance to me I will be pleased to offer to you 15% of the total fund. Note that any delay in replying me will give me room in searching for another for the same purpose.
Miss Scolla H. Sahili.
