From:Henri Kone Guei
Abidjan,Cote d Ivoire,
I am Henri Kone Guei from Cote d Ivoire. I am 22 years old ,I lost my father a couple of years ago. My father late General Robert Guei was a Ex-Military head of State of Ivory Coast until his untimely death,
(You can visit http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2269238.stm for complete report on this incident).
He was assassinated on the 19th of September 2002 by an unknown group of heavily armed gunmen following the political uprising. To be brief and straight to the point, before his untimely death, he deposited with a finance security company a metal safe box containing the sum of ( Eight Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) $ 8.5 Million Dollars meant for the purchase of heavy artilleries, armoured tank, ammunitions and security equipments from Ukraine . The security company do not know the real contents of the metal safe box is money, because he convincingly told them at the time of deposit that it only contains African Artefact treasures and computer security consumables that does not need air and sun rays, that will be ship to his foreign business associate in abroad. Name of the finance and security firm is withheld for security reasons.
I want you to do me a favour to claim the box as my late father foreign business associate overseas in your country, so that I will come over to your country for investment and resettlement, since the present administration is no more in cordial relationship with my families.
