I am Mrs Asita Bintu., an Ivorien widow with an only son Bello Bintu. My husband was the chief security officer to the ousted President Henry DEBIE of Cote d'Ivoire. During the over throw of 24th December 1999, my husband was among the people that were killed by the military. Immediately after his death, I ran away with my only son, may I introduce this business proposal to you.
Although I did not leave any clue as to the reason for my inquiry bearing in mind the confidentially required in this absolute risk-free transaction.
I do hereby wish to ask for your assistance in urgent business transaction that requires absolute honesty and secrecy. By virtue of my husband's position. The former President (BEDIE) gave him US$8.000.000.00 Dollars (Eight million US dollars) cash in US 100.00 dollars bill stacked in a box when he got information that the militaries were planning to over throw him.
Immediately my husband was confirmed dead, I made away with this box with my only son so that we cannot be reached by Mr BEDIE. I have really been waiting for a more suitable time and opportunity to contact you concerning this transaction. Right now, the money is in a safe place, I deposited it with a security company for safekeeping.
I am using this opportunity to seek for you assistance to move this money to your country, to be invested on behalf of my only son. For this business to be concluded immediately, all you need to do is to arrange to meet with me and my son where this box is been lodged, open an account in your name, pay in the whole money after clearing and transfering it to your account in your country.
We can't do that on our own because we don't have account else where, moreover, we don't have any business to cover-up, that is why we needed your assistance. I am ready to offer you 35% of the total sum and give you the full power to manage the remaining 65% on behalf of my son. We are currently staying in a sister's house in BURKINA FASO WEST AFRICA.
