I am Ms. Anne Gbagbo from Ivory Coast. The daughter of the ousted president of Ivory coast. My father refused to hand over power to his rival who defeated him in the last presidential election held in my country, irrespective of the fact that the international community and the African confirmed him looser.
As a result of this last run-off election in our country, there has
been problems had resulted to the shift of power to the opponent. He (my father)
was captured by the French forces some days ago and was handed over to his
opponent for peace to reign in my country. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/apr/13/ivory-coast-laurent-gbagbo-capture.
And currently am in exile in a country which I will disclose to you for the fear of the unkown. However dear, as I was searching the web, I saw your profile that speaks good of you which present the ideal man that I needed to be of good help to me hence by the special grace of God we can plan for a genuine long term relationship. This is why I decided to confine the following secret of my situation to you.
Before this post election problems, my father deposited a huge sum of money in a foreign bank, and I needed a good and trustworthy individual to help evacuate this money and channel it into a good business before the new government starts freezing his accounts and assets. Then, after this the person will take 30% of the total money transferred .
However, after much deliberation with my father’s lawyer he asked me to seek for a good and willing foreigner who can help to evacuate this money that it is only a foreigner that can help to do this. He further stated that as far as my father had been overpowered by the opponent, that this money in the bank will be confiscated into government treasury and as such that it is only a foreigner that can help to claim this money as my legal husband. That without it, we stand the chances to loose this money to the coffers of the present govement. However as a matter of fact, the political situation in the country is not guaranteed so I have a very short period to evacuate the money or forfeit it after the new government starts operating fully.
Please dear, after going through this mail and you deemm it wise to help me out of this situation; please respond to this clarion call through my email address so as to enable me to forward to you my pictures and the bank details for the commencement of the processing of this money. Thanks and God bless you.
