Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire
I am Morgan Kunteh, the only son of late Mr and Mrs Alfred Kunteh, I am here with my only sister Joy.Our father was a wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan,the economic capital of Ivory Coast( Cote d'ivoire) before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business deal.
When our mother died on the 21st October 1987,our father took me and my younger sister special because we are motherless.Before the death of our father on 30th March 2004 in a private hospital here in Abidjan, he secretly called us on his bedside and told us that he has a sum of $9,000.000 (Nine million united states dollar)deposited in a bank here on his name.
He also explained to us that it was because of this wealth and some huge amount of money his associates supposed to have balance him from the deal they had that he was poisoned , that we should seek for a God fearing foreign partner in a country of our choice who can assist us in claiming this fund from the bank for investment purposes and also to continue our education over there.
But because of the present political problems in this country Cote d'ivoire we want to transfer the money out of the country as we don't know what might happen next.We are honourably seeking your assistance in the following way.
( 1) To act as the foreign partner of our late father by claiming this fund from the bank for further transfer and investment to your designated bank account .
Moreover , we are willing to offer you 15% of the sum as compensation for effort input after the successful transfer of this fund to your account in your country.
Anticipating to hear from you soon.
Thanks and God Bless.
Morgan & Joy
