Dearest One Â My name is Richard Hill, I am the financial adviser to Mrs Simone Gbagbo, the wife of President laurent Gbagbo of Ivory coast. Over the years while her husband was still in power, I helped her move out funds for lodgement in so many countries waiting for further instructions from her. Â Due to the problem that arose because of the political situation in Ivory Coast, the Eu has threatened to seize all funds belonging to Laurent Gbagbo and his allies because he has refused to cede power so I was advised as a matter of urgency to look for a reliable partner to work with in receiving the funds for safe keeping. Â I want to transfer the sum of 15,675,000 Euros.( fifteen milliom six hundred and seventy five thousand euros). You will be entitled to 30% for your assistance. Â If you can handle this. Furnishing me with the following information as listed below 1.Your full name 2.Postal address 3.Date of birth 4.Telephone and fax numbers Any other details will follow at the receipt of your response Looking forward for your quick respond to the mail.
