NAME: Dr. Tito Guei Gran Meliá Victoria GL Palma De Mallorca Spain Dear, sir/madam My name is Dr.Tito Guei the Son of late General Robert Guei, the Ex-Military Head of State of Ivory Coast, who was murdered along with the Interior Minister on the 19th of September 2002 (You can visit http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2269238.stm for complete report on this incident). I contacted you because of my need to deal with persons whom my family and I have had no previous personal relationships. Since the murder of my father, I have been subjected to all sorts of harassment and intimidation with lots of negative reports emanating from the Government and the press about my family. The present Government has also ensured that our bank accounts are frozen and all assets seized. It is in view of this that I seek your co-operation and assistance in the transfer of the sum of Seventy Million United States Dollars ($70,000,000.00) CASH being the very last of my family fund in my possession and control, after the murder of my father the Federal Government seized all our properties and our accounts both local and international was frozen. My only hope now is this cash that my father carefully packaged and deposited as Non-Exposable Photographic Materials with a Security/Finance Company in the Europe with an anonymous name. I am presently in Spain seeking Asylum and to withdrew the money from the security company and put it into use only to discover that it is against the human right law SECTION 22 OF THE REFUGEES ACT NO: 130 OF 1998 that asylum seekers in the country are not allow carrying out any financial transactions. This money can easily be with drawn or be moved to a recommended beneficiary country. I have with me all the proof and documents. It is without any risk. Now based on the problem my family is having presently, I will want to use your details to reproduce a new certificate of deposit so that you will be able to claim this fund from the security company, My aim of doing this is to make sure that my family name dose not associate with the fund in the security company, As we do not wish to give room for any suspicion. To show my preparedness and appreciation to carry-out this business with you, 35% of the total sum will be your share while 20% commission of the proceeds realized from the investment of this fund will also be yours, also 5% is to be set aside for any eventual cost that might arise as the transaction proceeds. I need your full support and co-operation for the success of this transaction. I plead with you to treat this issue confidential and urgent because it is delicate and it demands a great degree of secrecy.Reply only by E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested to assist me. I sincerely will appreciate your quick response. I wait to hear from you. Yours Sincerely Dr.Tito Guei
