As it is with a real pleasure that am contacting you from Cotonou the eco= nomic Capital of Benin Republic (West Africa) where I presently reside. Before the assassination of my father, he told me about the deposit that = he made in a Security Firm through a diplomatic means three years ago. He al= so told me that what he deposited was money, and the money was meant for agricultural project.
