Hello My Dear One
Please permit me to introduce myself, my name is Samira Kipkalya Kones, 24yrs old female (single) and i'm from Kenya in East Africa. I appeal to you to exercise a little patience and read through my letter because i feel quite safe dealing with you in person, for that, I'm writing this mail to you with due respect, trust and humanity and with pains, tears and sorrow from my heart, strongly believing in Al-Mighty God/Allah that you will consider my letter and help me and also benefit from me. Although, we have neither met in person nor by communication. But i believe, it is one day you get to know someone, either by physical or through correspondence. Honestly, i wish to contact you personally for a long term business relationship and investment assistance in your country.
My Father (Hon. Kipkalya Kones) was the former Kenyan road Minister. He and the assistant minister of home affairs (Mr.Lorna Laboso) were on board when the plane crashed on the Tuesday 10th, June, 2008 which was headed to kericho and crashed in a remote area called kajong'a, in Western Kenya and the plan number was ( Cessna 210 ). My late Father was an investor, he Invested his fund to Kenya stock exchange market, Gold storing investment, he was a preference shareholder in Shell Petroleum Company and deals in Real Estate building investment.
You can read more about the crash through the below site:
My late Father deposited the sum of USD$21.800.000.00M (Twenty One Million, Eight Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) in my name here in Burkina Faso.
You are entitle of financial benefit of 30% of the total fund and 5% will be set aside for any expenses incured during the time of completing the transaction on your side, while the rest of the fund shall be my investment capital in your country. i have no knowledge of international transaction of this nature but I took this decision personally because it occured to me that transfer of this type must involve an expenditure,on the other hand, in the absent of expenses, the 5% set aside will be return to me.
After my father's burial, my Evil Uncle had a plan against me and sold my father's properties to an Italian expatriate which he used all the money and leave me only to suffered. My evil Uncle threaten to kill me because i didn't accept him to sit on my only inheritance, willed in my name. Because of his attempt to killed me, i ran away and traveled to Burkina Faso and had a discussion with Bank Managing Director to make some withdrawal of the money for a better life, so i can take care of myself and start a new life again, the Bank Managing Director whom i met in person told me that my father's instruction in his will was the inheritance money would only be release to me when i present a Reliable Foreign Trustee who would help me and invest the money overseas.
As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely. Awaiting your urgent and positive response. Please do keep this only to your self for now until the bank will transfer the fund. I beg you not to disclose it until i come over because I am afraid of my wicked uncle who has threatened to kill me and have the money alone ,I thank God Today that am out from my country (Kenya) but now In (Burkina Faso) where my father deposited these money with my name as the next of Kin. I have the documents for the claim.
Thanks God bless you
Samira Kipkalya Kones
