This is Miss Marian Rennie from Trinidad & Tobago. I am writing from the hospital here in Cote dâIvoire , therefore this mail is very urgent as you can see that I am dying in the hospital. I was told by the doctor that I was poisoned and has got my liver damaged and can only live for some months. I inherited some money Two Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars ($2.5 Million) from my late father, and I cannot think of anybody trying to kill me apart from my step mother, She Poisoned me in order to inherit the money, she is an Ivorian by nationality.
I want you to contact my servant with these informations below:
Master Augustin Maranatha.
Address: Rue De La Princess L /G 152 Cocody
Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire.
He will give you the documents of the money, and will also direct you to a well known lawyer that I have appointed to him, the lawyer will assist you to change the documents of the money to your name to enable the bank transfer the money to you.
These are the favors I need from you when you must have received the money in your bank account:-
(1) Give 10% of the money to my servant, Master Augustin as he has been there for me through my illness, and I have promised to support him in life. I want you to please take him along with you to your country and establish him as your son after you have received the money.
(2) Give 10% of the money to Charity Organizations and Churches on my name so that my soul may rest in peace.
Note; This should be a code between you and Master Augustin in this transaction "Hospital" Meanwhile any mail from him, the barrister he will direct you to, without this code "Hospital" please is not from the barrister, Augustin, the bank or myself as I don't know what will happen to me in the next few hours.
(3) The lawyer's name is Barrister Timothy Zoro. Please Augustin is still a small boy therefore you should guide him.
And if I don't hear from you, I will look for another person or an organisation.
May God bless you.
