Assalamu alaikom, In the name of Almighty Allah, the most merciful, It is a great pleasure that I am writing this letter to you and I know that something positive will come out of it.I am , by the name Isabelle, the wife of a prominent business man in KORHOGO the northern part of Ivory Coast.My husband's name is Mohammed. He was arrested by some government officials accusing him of funding the rebellion in the country.To our utmost surprise,we found his body in a forest in the capital city dead. We have done all the necessary things concerning his burial and we are through now. The aspect that I want to discuss with you is that my late husband,when he was alive did a business with his foreign partners worth of $20.4 million(Twenty million four hundred thousand US DOLLARS). This money was been deposited in a security company in Europe before his untimely death,and this is where I want you to come in and help us.We need the help of a foreign partner that has an account so that we can get the money out. I am therefore proposing 25% of the money to you if you can help me get the money out of the security company in Europe because it is not an ideal country for me. And that I shall invest 50% of the money in your country or anywhere you suggest while 5% of the total amount as been aside for any expenses that you might incure during this transaction(telephone, transportion etc) I have the neccessary documents that proves with me and their contact in Europe for you to be able to talk to Security Company in Europe, i am reallying and putting trust in Almighty Allah and you.kindly help me out for the sake of my three children surfering now, they could not go to school mainly because of the school fees. I know that something positive will come out for us,both you and me including my three children and i pray with the help of Allah you should help us why because my children do not go to school any longer. Looking forward to see your reply very soon and let me have your contact address and phone to call you, and may Almighty Allah in his mercy be with you, if i see your reply i will give you their contact of the security company in Europe for you to meet them and discuss on how to retrieve the funds.
