Dearest One,


Good day and how are you today? I hope fine? After going through your profile, its  permit me to 
inform you of my desire of asking you to be my guardian or foster parent to me and then help me out 
in what I am about to tell you.

My name is Janet Kone (16). I am only child of Late Mr. & Mrs. John C Kone. My father was a cocoa 
merchant here in Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote d’Ivoire. He was poisoned to death by his 
business associates on one of their outings on a business trip. My mother died after two hours she 
gave bet to me.

Before the death of my father on Sept 14th 2004 in a private hospital here in Abidjan, he secretly 
called me by his bed side and told me that he has the sum of eight million United State Dollars USD 
($8.000,00) deposited in one of the banks in Europe. He told me that he used my name (Janet Kone) 
as the next of Kin in depositing the money and he also told me where he kept the entire document.

He then strongly advised me not to seek assistance from his lawyer nor any of his friends or family 
here but to seek for a foreign partner from a country of my choice (outside our country, Cote 
d’Ivoire) that will assist me in wise investment of the money. I have since left the money in the 
bank with the view of my making use of it for investment purposes after my education carrier.

As you are already aware by now, our country is presently on political crises. Rebels have already 
taken over the whole Northern part of the country and making efforts towards the capture of the 
commercial center of the country, Abidjan, where I am now.

For this ugly development in this country, I have now decided to contact you quickly and use it for 
investment purpose like in real estate or hotel investment. Because of this I am honorably seeking 
your assistance in the following ways:

(1) To help me as a guardian or foster parent.
(2) To assist me transfer the money into your bank account.
(3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to enable me further my education and 
then settle there permanently.
(4)To promise me you we not go away with the funds or act like my fathers brother who took my 
fathers welt and chase me into the street.
If you accept to stand as my guardian or foster parent to me, I need not discuss on any percentage 
with you as you have to see the whole money as yours and then assist me invest it. But if you still 
want a percentage, I am willing to offer you, 20 % of the total money as compensation for your 
assistance. Pleas tell me if you feel the percentage I offered is not ok by you.

As soon as I receive your concrete assurance to assist me with my proposal, I will provide you with 
further directives and I will require your full address/phone number to enable me give you the bank 
your contact information and then tell them to transfer the money into your account as I willing to 
come over to stay with you permanently. The bank will then contact you and directly properly you on 
the transfer procedures. You shall then be giving me information on when the transfer will be over, 
however, I am willing to send my pictures to you and I shall also need yours too.

No matter what your decision may turn out to be, please I beg you to keep this highly secret for my 
safety, as I believe that those that killed my Daddy might still be after me. Please reply me 
through this my private and confidential email address:
Thanks and God bless you.

Best regards,
Janet Kone.
