There is this huge amount of Seven million Five Hundred Thousands U.S dollars (7.500.000.00 which my late Father kept with a Fiduciary Fund Holder in Abidjan before his death Now, I have decided to invest this money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside Africa for security and political reasons.

I want you to assist me claim and retrieve this fund from the Fiduciary Fund Holders and transfer it into your personal account in your country for investment purposes on these areas: 1). Telecommunication  2). the transport industry 3). Five star hotel If you can be of any assistance to me I will be pleased to offer to you 20% of the total fund.

I await your soonest response

Respectfully yours,
