Our dear friend.
I know that it will be very suprise to you who we are and why we decided to contact you.In all it is due to our sutiation that made me and my sister to contact you. My name is Brown Wetego and my sister's name is Grace Wetego.We are from Sierra-Leon in West Africa.
Our sutiation is very pityfull and our condition is very sorrowfull due to we are ophan.We lost our father during the civil war in my country Sierra-Leon, the day rebel soldiers came into our house by 4:00AM on that memorable day and took away our father, we never saw him again until after four days his beheaded body was found one killometer away from our home in Free-town the capital city of Sierra-Leon.
Before his death our father was the director of finance in the Ministry of Mine and Energy between 1994-1998. It was after the death of our father that our mother took us to Abidjan Coté D' Ivoire where we are now.It was unfortunate that our mother died last year 16th of
November after battling with cancer for four years.This now left i and my sister ophans.
Despite every thing it have not been easy with me and my sister due to pressure comming from our immediate relations.They tried to took away from our mother the little thing our father left before his death.This made my father's brothers to hate our mother because she did not agree to disclose to them where our father finacial wealth is kept.
Since the burial of our mother they are on my neck to give them some of my father's documents and personal files.What troubles me most is constant treat to my life.This have made me and my sister to relocate to a unknown place outside Abidjan Capital of Coté d' Ivoire.We are now at a place called BASSAM 10killometers from Abidjan.There we are now. Please our good friend we are in dear need of your help.
I have right now in my hand a certificate of prove of money our father deposited with a security house here in Abidjan Coté d' Ivoire.My mother before her death she told us that the deposit is twenty Million US dollars.(US$20,000.000).Our father move this money out from Sierra-Leon at the middle of the civil war and deposited it in a security house in Abidjan.
Our dear friend our requeqt from you is to help us move this money out from this security house to your country and help us come down to your country and start a new life there. I and my sister will give you 30% of this money as soon as it gets to your custody and 5% will be for any thing you spend to secure this money to your custody.
God bless you as we look forward to hearing from you.
Brown and Grace Wetego
