This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the
fact that we have not yet met. The message could be
strange but real if you pay some attention to it. I
could have notified you about it at least for the sake
of your integrity. Please accept my sincere apologies
in bringing this message of goodwill to you, I have to
say that I have no intentions of causing you any
pains. As i am writting you, i am in a sick bed
because i am having a heart attack.

I am a Mrs. Elizabeth Eloh, 52 year old business woman
from Sierra Loene in west Africa.I elate to inform you
that I inherited a huge sum of Us dollars from my late husband chief
Kossi M.Eloh, a gold and diamond dealer who was
murdered last year by the former Liberian president Mr Charles Taylor over the dispute in their 
diamond and gold deal.

This money which is concealled in a computerised Trunk
box is deposited in a safe deposit company in Europe, where i am presently taking refuge with my 
two kids and the trunk box was deposited as containing family treasure not money for security 
reason.That is to say that the deposit company in Europe does not know that the trunk box contain 
money.This was done under a high powered government conection.

Your assistance is now sought in retrieving the trunk
box from the deposit company in Europe and  transfer
this money to you country for investment into any
lucrative business of your choice.By this mail, you
are requested to visit me here for familiarisation and
to enable us arrange on how to get this trunk box out
from the deposit company in europe and transfer this
money into your account in your country after which I
will go back with you. But if you cannot come down
here, I can prepare an authorization letter on your
name which will give you to power to meet with the
deposit company in Europe on my behalf for the release
of the trunk box to you before we can start arrangeing
on how to come over to your country. For rendering
this service, you will be highly compensated, a
situation that will be discussed later.

I want you to take this transaction very serious
because it will benefit you.I will later tell you why
I reposed this trust and confidence in you, a person I
have not met before. we must act fast because it cost
me 50 Euro daily as demurage to the deposit company
keeping this trunk box and the earlier we remove it
from there the better for us. This is not scam please.I know about scam because my late husband
was a victim
before his death.

Please while replying do not forget to include your
direct telephone number for easier communication

Looking forward to your reply through this my private

Sincerely yours,
Elizabeth Eloh
