Dear One, 

Please I am JOHN MAKASIN, the only son of late CHIEF
VINCENT MAKASIN from Sierra Leone. I got your contact
from the Ecowas Infomation Center in Côte d'Ivoire. My
sources of your contact gave me the courage and 
confidence to rely on you. I am writing you in
absolute confidence primarily to seek your assistance
to transfer our cash of Nine Million five hundred
thousand United States Dollars($9.5,000,000.00) now in
the custody of a BANK here in Abidjan to your
privateaccount pending our arrival to your country. 

My late father, chief Vincent makasin, a native of
mende district in the Northern province of Sierra
Leone, was the general Manager of Sierra 
Leone mining co-operation (S.L.M.C.) Freetown.
According to my father. This money was the income
accrued from mining co-operation's over draft and
minor sales. 

Before the peak of the civil war between the rebels
forces of major Paul Koroma and the combined forces of
ECOMOG peace keeping operation that almost destroyed
my country, following the forceful removal from power
of the Civilian Elected President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah
by the rebels. My father had already made arrangement
for his family, my mother, my little sister and myself
to be evacuated to Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire with our
personal effects . 

My father deposited the fund for the safe custody
until after the war when he will join us. During the
war in my country, and following the indiscriminate
looting of public and Government properties by
therebel forces, the sierra Leone mining co-op was one
of the targets looted and destroyed. 

My father including other top Government functionaries
were attacked and killed by the rebels in November
2002 because of his relationship with the civilian
Government of Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. As a result of my 
father death, and with the news of my uncles
involvement in air crash in January, dashed our hope
of survival. The untimely deaths caused my 
mothers heart failure and other related complications
of which she later died in the hospital After we must
have spent a lot of money on her. Now my 16-year-old
sister and myself are alone in this strange country
suffering without any care or help. Without any
relation, we are now like refugees and orphans. Our
only hope now is in the fund our father deposited in
the BANK. To this effect, I humbly solicit your
assistance in the followings ways.To assist me claim
this fund from the BANK as co-beneficiary. 

To transfer this money in your name to your country.
To make a good arrangement for a joint business
investment on our behalf in your country with you as
the caretaker.To secure a college for my little sister
and my self in your country to further our education. 
And to make arrangement for our travel to your country
after you have transferred this fund.Most importantly.
The whole documents issued after deposit is in my
custody. For your assistance, I beg to concede 10% of
this money to you for your assistance .
