 Dearest one.
I am making this contact with profound interest, having considered you highly reputable and capable of assistance to my understated business proposal after going through a brief profile of your company here in the Coted'ivoire International Trade Affairs Commission.and to  intimate you of a matter that requires an urgent attention. But briefly, I am Miss Linda. Asoku, the first daughter of late Dr Ahmed Asoku, the former chairman/CEO of the Sierra-Leone national Gold & Diamond Mining Corporation.
It is my pleasure communicating with you for the first time and believe that it will lead to a better relationship between us. I hope you will not impede the trust and confidence I repose in you.I sent this letter from Abidjan in Cote d'Ivoire here I have an official refugee status with my mother after leaving our country due to an event that took place on February 2001 which led to the arrest and detention of my father and six other men after a face off with the  Sierra-Leone government on allegation of subversive activities and treasonable offences which was nothing but a mere political persecution.
After five months in the military detention camp my father was announced dead by the government special press release. Though I do not know to what extent you are familiar with the event and crisis in Sierra-Leone, however during the disturbance and prior to my father's death he gave me all the documents for the secret deposit he made in the security company in Abidjan. The deposit is US$ 18Million US Dollars, he made the deposit in one trunk box(cash), but the real content of the box was not disclosed to the security company officials as these were deposit as personal effect for security reasons.
However I have gone to the security company to confirm the deposit and establish ownership, please I need your assistance urgently in moving this fund abroad for investment, when the fund is properly secured we will jointly invest in any business you consider profitable.
I will be glad for your resolved assistance, I will kindly appreciate if we can talk and emerge words with action. With all honesty to the stated data in my message,i assure you of the genuity of this proposal. I will particularly be happy if you can handle this transaction in the most confidential manner since the rest of my life solely depends on this fund.It is the fear of betrayal from any one around us here  that informed my decision to contact a neutral individual like you, and I want you to educate me on investment potential in your country since I would not like to invest or stay in any of the African country.
I will not hesitate to give you 20% of the total sum for your assistance, so if you will be able to assist me, please do urgently reply me for further clarification and confirmation and in other to stop further contacts.
Thank for your anticipated co-operation, May God bless you.
Your Sincerely,
