Dear Friend,

I am Ms Lily Wilson from Ivory Coast. I am 21 year of age. I am an orphan due to my fatherâs sudden death in 2013. He died in Paris, France on a business trip. My father deposited the sum of $3,500,000 as consignment with a security company in Abidjan. It was disclosed to me by my fatherâs lawyer after my fatherâs death. As a young girl, my uncle forcefully took over my fatherâs estates and his residential building immediately he died. There are rumors and speculations that he knew what happened to my father because he traveled together with my father to Paris.

I want you to assist me as my foreign trustee and guardian to retrieve the consignment from the security company and secure it in your country. I will join you in your country as soon as you receive the money.  I need your assistance to claim the consignment from the security company and invest it in your country. I don't want my uncle to know about this money for the sake of my safety. I need your help, honesty and love to secure this money.

I will provide you with more details of the consignment and contact informationâs of the security company when I read from you.

Your suggestion will be regarded.

Best Regard,
Ms Lily Wilson.
