Hello Dear, I decided to contact you for assistance. I am Miss Clara Bede, 20 years and the only child of late Mr and Mrs Hosiah Bede of blessed memory. My father was a cocoa merchant and supporter of the opposition party leader in our country. Before he was assassinated by unknown Gun Men suspected to be agents of the government. If you are very familiar with news from my country (Ivory Coast), you will understand that many supporters of the opposition has been killed, attacked or wounded. My father use to be a nice and generous man. It is very sad to say that he just died this way. I pray to God to avenge his death. My late father, immediately the present crisis started in our country after the 30th November run-off election between the incumbent president and the opposition leader, handed over to me documents covering deposit of funds sum of USD10.5 Million he made in a local bank here which is in a suspense account awaiting transfer to overseas. Now my father has been buried and burial ceremonies completed according to our village local tradition and custom. Now because of the circumstance surrounding the death of my father, I now feel that the best thing to do is to travel out of country for my safety that is why I am contacting you to help me receive this money in your bank in your country and also help me come over to your country for my safety. It was in my fatherâs earlier arrangement before his untimely death as my mother died when I was a kid. I will continue my education in your country once this money gets to your account. I will need your urgent reply immediately so that I can give you details. Waiting for your quick reply. Yours Faithfully, Miss Clara Bede
