Hello my dear,
Good day to you and how is everything? Honestly I am glad to write you this letter and I hope you will find it favourable to hear me out. My name is Esther Kipkalya Kones from Kenya, i am 24 years old and the daughter of the former Kenyan road minister late Dr Kipkalya Kones who died on Tuesday 10th June 2008 along the Cessna 210 plane crash which was heading to Kericho in a remote area called Kajonga in western Kenya as You can read more on the crash below:
Although we are just getting to know each other please consider it as a divine wish and accept it with a better understanding,I believe you have come to hare the good life with me because i am very lonely where i am,i just need your honest attention as you will consider me to be your sister pehapes your closest friend. Ernestly i am writing this mail with tears and sorrow from my heart due to the condition i find myself after the passing away of my parent and nothwithstanding the whole tragic situation my step mother made me feel mallested and rejected without any cause simply because my mum had died earlier and i am from a polygamous family. Thereafter the funeral of my late dad,my stepmother and my uncle with their african mentality conspired and sold off my father's properties worth milions of dollar to an italian expertrate and shared the money among themselves living me with nothing.
One faithful morning as i tried to open my father's briefcase,i found an important documents with which my father had deposited some money in my name as the next of kin at the African development bank,Burkina Faso. I had travelled down to Burkina Faso to withdraw some of the money to take good care of my self because i am in difficulty but the Bank Director whom I met in person highlited me on my father's instruction to the bank concerning the money and how it should be withdrawn that only on the account that i am married or i should present to the bank an honest,responsible and worthy trustee whom will assist me in reclaiming the fund into safe hands and transfer it for an investment as i finish up my education. In my search for a reliable person i have found you as some one i can count on and I believe that you will not betray my trust on you but rather take me as your own sister or closest friend because right now i am suffering terribly here in Burkina faso in the refugee camp as i have no body to rescue me from this strange situation in a foreign land.
I have chosen you to be my best companion and in my prayers i am convinced that you will be the true one to rescue me from this trouble as my trustee and i am having the trust that wih you i will accompish this successfully. I have the money confirmed in the bank $7.2 million in their records as unclaimed bill in my father account and i have the death certificate and the deposit certificate of the fund to state as proof of my geneuity. I shall compensate you 40% from the whole money in as much as you could help with the neccesary requirements to make the transfer of this money into your account successfully. I wait upon your positive response showing your interest and ability to stand for me in this situation to carry out this transaction and in the light of the above i shall appreciate your urgent message indicating your willingness to help me with all your mind to achieve this successfully with a better details about yourself ok. Thanks and God bless you as i look forward to seeing your reply.
Miss Esther Kipkalya
