Dearest One,

I know my email will come to you as a surprise since you don't know me and we have not had any 
previous contact. Please, forgive me if am disturbing your privacy. The reason why I have contacted 
you is to explain my plight to you as to know if you can help me receive the sum US$ 
dollars in your account I inherited this money from my late father.

My name is Anita Tom Brown, my father was assassinated by the rebels during the wars in Cote d 
Ivoire our neighboring country. My father has a lot of investment and cocoa/coffee plantations in 
Cote d Ivoire but unfortunately he was assassinated during one of his business trips there. There 
is this belief that it was planned by his business partners who wanted to take over his investment 
in Cote d Ivoire. We are from Cotonou, Republic of Benin, but my father did all his business in 
Cote d Ivoire because my late mother was from Cote I Ivoire.

Luckily for me I was able to find in his belongings after his funeral an agreement he used to 
deposit money with a bank here. He had made the deposit for a business partner of his whom he said 
will claim the money for a chocolate factory they intended to build. He did not mention the name of 
the partner in the bank document. After his death I went to the bank and they are asking me for 
that foreign partner. I therefore decided to contact you so I can introduce you to the bank as his 
foreign partner so the bank will transfer the money to your account. I will reward you handsomely 
for this and you will help in the investment of the money in a lucrative investment you deem fit 
not just the chocolate factory. You will also help me relocate to your country.

Your telephone number in case the bank wants to contact you directly:your house address or office 

Once I receive the above information I will take it to the bank and instruct them to transfer the 
money to you. Please this money is my only
hope in life and I therefore count on you not to abandon me when the bank transfers the money to 

I look forward to receiving your quick response.
Remain blessed,
Anita Tom Brown
