YOUR ASSISTANCE NEEDED
MY name is Miss Florence Guel, daughter of the former military ruler of Ivory coast who was murdered by agents of this present government.After my fathers death,all of our properties were seized by the government,and we are still being hunted by agents of this government. Since I am the only surviving member of my family, I have decided to confide in a reliable person that can help me out of my present situation, based on what my late father told me before he died. I am presently seeking political asylum in the Netherlands, and since the law does not permit me on money transaction in such amount, decided to seek for your assistance.
Before my late father died, he told me about a trunk box that he deposited in a security company in the Netherlands Europe in my name, inside this trunk box is US$25,000,000.00(Twenty-five million United States Dollars Only) and I am the beneficiary of this fortune. This is where I need your help to move this money out for safe keeping in your country where I can invest . I have contacted the security company and they have acknowledged that the box is in there possession and that I can claim it whenever I am ready.
My late-father deposited and registered the box as containing family valuables as not to attract the attention of the company's staff or more dummurage bills. I am willing to give 20% to you for your efforts, if you can help me claim this box, 5% will be set aside for what ever expenses that may be in cured in claiming the box. As soon as you agreed to help, the security will forward an a goodwill agreement between you and I through the Legal department. And all other valid documents as the time of deposit will be forwarded to you as soon as you agree to talk with the security company who are the custodian of the consignment.
I sincerely hope that you can be kind enough to help me, and as soon as you retrieve the box , I will come over to your country , while you will be in charge of the investment .
Finally, kindly send your full names/address and telephone number to enable the security company contact you.
I pray that God will give you the wisdom to help Me,
Thank you very much,
Florence Guel (miss)
