Dearest one,
Good day,
My Greeting to you,I know that this proposal  might be a surprise to you but do consider it as an emergency.
I got your contact from the Internet in  IVORY COAST for a possible transaction, I needs someone to trust,without remembering my past and forsaken experiences from family.
My name is henry 19 years of age and my sister is ruth 16 years of age, wish to solicit your help in migrating to your country and investing my funds. Briefly,  We are Sierra Leonean National and the children of late DR.THOMAS MICHAEL .
Until his death, our father was the General overseer of the diamond Mine in Kanema Sierra Leone.The military forces loyal to the Government of Ahmed TIJAN KABBAH invaded the diamond mine and assasinated our father, mistaking him for his brother MIKE THOMAS who is the deputy to the leader of the revolutionary united front (RUF) Foday SANKOH.
When the ne ws reached me, I hurriedly gathered some valuables in our family villa and escaped for my dear life acompany with my only sister
Among the valuables was a file that contained details of a deposit my late father made in a security company in Abidjan Côte d'Ivoire. He deposited ($18.2 Million US dollars) contained in 2 trunk boxes in the name of me as containing family valuables.
Now that we are in Abidjan and verified the transaction, we need your assistance to move this funds out of Côte d'Ivoire for investment in your country as we cannot invest here due to its nearness to our country and the war still going on there.
We ask you to scout for a viable and lucrative business.We are going to give you 20% share in any investment we will embark upon if you assist us.
We shall also set aside 5% of the funds for miscelleanous expenses which you  might make in course of this transaction-fax messages, phone calls, airticket s.
This fortune we have revealed to you should remain confidential as it is only you who have been contacted for this transaction, so that your messages will be confidentially received.
