Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim Assalamu Alaikum My name is Diane Myryam Keita from Cote d'Ivoire, but lived briefly in Afghanistan untill the war broke out. My late father ( Late El-Hadji Abdulazeez Keita ) had lost his life in the course of the crisis in Afghanistan. My father deposited the sum of $6.5M USD which he deposited in a a prime bank here in Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire,I came across documents pertaining this, with enabling conditionalities for the release of the fund which are as follows: (1) That I must be 22 years or above. (2) That upon request for the release of the fund, there must be evidence of investment intentions I contact you therefore to confirm if you can absorb me in partnership in your company or possibly advise me on any investment opportunity in your country. When I reach agreement with you, the bank will release my fund into an account that you shall nominate and I will come over to you to commence business partnership with you and the fund. SIR, I AM RESPECTFULLY SEEKING YOUR ASSISTANCE IF YOU CAN BE OF HELP TO ME IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS. ASSISTING ME TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THE BANK WHERE THE FUNDS ARE KEPT, BASED ON THE INFORMATION I HAVE BEEN GIVEN, THEY COULD IDENTIFY THE ACCOUNT IN QUESTION. TELL THEM THAT YOU HAVE BEEN APPOINTED BY THE FAMILY TO MAKE A CLAIM FOR THE FUNDS AND THAT THEY SHOULD TRANSFER THE FUNDS TO YOU ON OUR BEHALF. I AM JUST 17YRS OF AGE, I HAVE NOT EVEN COMPLETED MY EDUCATION. I DO NOT HAVE MUCH EXPEREINCE IN THINGS LIKE THIS BUT I KNOW THAT I CANNOT AFFORD TO TRUST ANYBODY AROUND ME NOW. I COULD RATHER TRUST A STRANGER WHO MAY FIND IT IN HIS HEART TO BE KIND TO ME AND HELP, THAN THOSE OLD FRIENDS OF MY DAD, WHO SEE ME AS A RISK TO THEIR OWN FAMILY IF THEY SHOULD OFFER HELP TO ME. SO I AM ON MY OWN NOW AS IT IS. I NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE IF YOU CAN GIVE IT. I WILL WANT YOU TO HELP ME RECIEVE THE FUNDS IN YOUR ACCOUNT.I WILL WANT YOU TO HELP ME TO COME OVER TO YOUR COUNTRY AND SHOW ME THINGS I CAN INVEST IN. I WILL ALSO LIKE TO CONTINUE WITH MY EDUCATION AS WELL. WHATEVER YOU WILL WANT TO GET FOR THIS SERVICES I WILL BE WILLING TO NEGOTIATE WITH YOU. I JUST NEED SOMEBODY TO TRUST AS I HAVE BEEN DISSAPOINTED BY THOSE I THOUGHT COULD HELP. SIR IF YOU CAN HELP PLEASE RESPOND TO ME VIA MY E-MAIL ADDRESS May The Almighty guide and bless you.
