Attention Dearest, My name is Miss Linda Kamara the only Daughter of Late General Alexander Kamara the former Director of Military intelligence and special acting General Manager of the Sieria Leone Diamond mining coperation( SLDMC ). I am contacting you to seek your good assistance to transfer and invest USD 18 million belonging to my late father which was deposited in a bank in Abidjan. This money is revenues from solid minirals and diamonds sale which were under my fathers possession before the civil war broke out. Following the brake out of the war, almost all government offices, co-operations and parastatals were attacked and vandalized. The SLDMC was loothed and burnt down to ashes, and diamonds worth millions of dollars was stolen by the rebel military forces who attacked my father's office. Many top government officials and senior army officers were assasinated and my father was a key target because of his very sensitive military position and appointment in the SLDMC. Regreatably, my father was captured and murdered along with all brother in cool blood during a mid-night rebel shoot-out when our official residence in freetown was armbushed by Fordey Sanko the notorious rebel leader. My mother sustainded very sever bullet injuries which resulted to her untimely and painful death in a private hospital here in Ivory Coast. Now I am alone in a totally strange Country without parents, relatives or any body to care for me at my tender age. Before my mother died, she told me that my father deposited some money which he made from Diamond sales and contracts at this bank here in Ivory Coast that I should pray and find a trustworthy foreign business partner who would help me to transfer and invest this money in profitable business venture overseas. She told me to do this quickly so that I can leave Ivory Coast with my cousin bother kenneth who is here in the camp with me and, then settle down abroad. She gave me all the bank documents to prove the deposit and then told me that my father used my name as the only daughter as the next-of-kin to deposit the money in the bank. She told me that this is the reason why we came to Ivory Coast. My mother died afterwards. May her spirit rest in perfect peace. I have gone to the bank to make inquires about this fund and I spoke with the director of International remittance who assured me that everything is alright and promised to help me transfer this money to my foreign partners bank account as soon as I provide my partners foreign bank account for them. However, the director is very concerned because of my age, I am 19 years and as such promised to help me and he would like to speak with my partner to ensure that this money is invested wisely in only profitable business because of his personal interest and sympathy for me. I would like you to assist me, please let me know immediately and provide me with your following information are the bank here requested: 1. Your full names and address, tel/ fax/ mobile 2. Name of Bank and addres, Tel/fax/telex 3. Account name and number and 4. swift code etc. Please note that I can only offer you 15% of the total money as compensation for your noble assistance in accordiance with my mothers advise. I am interested in any profitable commercial venture which you consider very good in your country and you would get a school for me and my little brother so that I can finish my college education. I am hoping to hear your urgent response so that I can stop to look for another foreign partner. Thank you and may God bless you and your dear family.
