Dear oneIt is my pleasure to seek your opinion and also to confide
in you for a business partnership. though we have not met before, but I believe one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes in life. I am Miss Leti Ayiba Iâm from Bouake in northern part of the Cote d'voire. I contacted you for this noble transaction to seek you help and advice since I am too young to handle it alone. The sum of (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars) was deposited in a bank by my late father in Abidjan Economic capital of Cote dâIvoire which he wanted to used for his political ambition, before he was assassinated. Due to the situation I found myself, I have decided to invest this money in your country, because of the frequent political instability and also for security reasons, and the worst part of it, is that my uncles are trying to kill me over this money because I refused to hand over the documents covering this money to them, they has sold all my father's landed properties which rightful belong to me and has been on my nerves to give them details on the deposited money, which I refused. My life is now at stake so I ran away from my city to Abidjan, hiding in a hotel pending when this money will be released. I seek your assistance in the following ways: (1.) To provide a bank account where this money can be transferred into. (2.) To make arrangements for me to come to your country after the successful transfer of this money into your account, and further my education. (3.) To help invest this money in a profitable business since I am not old enough to handle such matters (4). I want you to promise me that you are not going to betray me after the money gets into your account since that is what I have left.
I will be pleased to offer you reasonable percentage of the total fund while the balance will be invested with your help. NOTE: I have all the necessary documents backing me up as the next of kin, If you are willing to assist me, please do not hesitate to contact me for further details and also hope you will handle this transaction with almost confidentiality and transparency it deserves.Yours Sincerely
Miss Leti Ayiba
