Dear Respected ,

My name is Madam Marisa Mayor  . A complete citizen of the
Philippines,widow to the late Mr Desmond  Mayor who died of ulcer and he
has been buried.

I inherited a total sum of 12.3 million dollars from my late husband, this
money which is concealed in a metallic trunk box is deposited with a
security and finance company in Cote D' Ivoire Due to the instruction he
laid down before he deposited the box, that he needed maximum
security/safety of my consignment and no body nor government organization
can trace where about of the box until were ready and prepare to claim it.

This deposit was coded under a secret arrangement as a family
treasure.This means that the security company does not know the content of
this trunk box.

My main purpose of sending you this mail is because of the way I found you
and perhaps trustworthy to give you this priority of shipping the box of
money to any address that you think is very secure and save in your
country with your percentage of which we shall chat on soon.

In fact, since the death of my husband, his brothers has been seriously
chasing me around with constant treats, trying to suppress me so that they
might have the documents of his landed properties and confiscate them.
They have successfully collected all his properties, yet they never
stopped there, they told me to surrender all bank account of my late
husband,which I did, but I never disclose to them this deposit with the
security company in Abidjan- Cote d'Ivoire, because this is where my
future and destiny lies upon.

The family of my late husband never aware of the secret existence of this
deposit which my late husband made with the security company and they can
never be aware of it.

Out of fear of my late husbands family, and when the situation becomes
uncontrollable because of pressure on me from the family, I decide to look
for a trustworthy person who could assist me retrieve this box of money
from the security company for onward lodgement into his account for the
purpose of future investment.Consider my situation as a widow and come to
my rescue.

There is need for urgent action because I'm paying $50 dollars per day as
a demurrage to the security company for safe keeping this consignment.

I give thanks immensely for your co-operation as I look forward to hear
from you soon.
All the best,
Madam Marisa
