. It was in one of this attacks by the rebels that led to the death of my husband and three of my 
children , now I am left with only my last son David . </DIV>  <DIV>I was terrified of the 
situation and because of this I escaped with my son David from Sierra - Leone to cote d' Ivoire 
into a refugee camp but brought along the sum of u.s$12.5 million , in a metallic box and presently 
in a security
 company as family valuables . </DIV>  <DIV>My aim of contacting you is to seek for your able 
assistance as a front in transferring this fund abroad into an&nbsp; account , then as a business 
developer , you can help us to invest wisely in areas you deem lucrative and finally obtain a 
residential permit for us to stay comfortable in your country of abode . </DIV>  <DIV>Presently we 
cannot go back to Sierra- Leone because of the situation there and you know that cote d' Ivoire 
where we are now is politically unstable; we therefore wish you could help us get out of here 
before it become worse. </DIV>  <DIV>We are prepared to offer you 10% of the total funds for your 
able assistance and support and would send you proofs of the funds as soon as we favourably hear 
from you . </DIV>  <DIV>Finally I implore you to treat this transaction with secrecy and
