Hello dear,

My name is Mrs. FILO KATTAN from Sierra-Leone. I live in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire here with my only 
child RAMON who is just 17 years of age.  It's with tears and pains that I write you this mail from 
my sick bed in the hospital here because I deemed it necessary to disclose this important issue to 
you and I believe you can be of assistance. I have being suffering from a long time sickness which 
started 2 years ago as I came back from the village for my late husband's funeral and I have tried 
many medications but all to no avail. Am very sorry to bother you with my pains and vision for the 
poor, but I can't keep quiet and die with this vision that i planned years back with my late 
husband before his death.

I am contacting you because I have some funds US$7.500, 000 which I inherited from my late husband 
and I need your and sincerer co-operation and assistance to help me receive this money in your 
account in your country and use it as I directed you herein. 1. For the welfare of the poor and 
other rightful charity homes in your country or elsewhere in the world. 2. To assist the sick ones 
in the hospitals. 3. To help my son RAMON come over to your country to further his education while 
you help him invest his part of the fund in a good business in your country. 

I and my son have agreed to give you 15% of this fund as compensation and thanks for your help and 
for managing this project. If you interested and assure that you can be TRUSTED in this matter, 
reply me immediately so that i cn give you more details before I go for operation. 

May God bless you.

Yours beloved sister and son,
Mrs. Filo Kattan and son Ramon.
