Mr. Timothy Nicol. Citizen/: Sierra Leone ABIDJAN, IVORY COAST WEST-AFRICA. Dear Friend. With due respect and humility I write you this letter which I believe you would be of great assistance to me and my younger sister. I am Timothy Nicol, the son of the late Mr Melron Nicol-Wilson Jr of blessed memory. Prior to my father's assassination by the rebel forces loyal to the revolutionary United Front (RUF), he was the Director General National Gold and Diamond Mining Corporation of Sierra-Leone. Few days before my father was assassinated, he instructed me and my younger sister (Miss. Sylvie Nicol) to move out of Sierra-Leone and also to go in his underground strong room where the documents of money he has deposited in a WEST COAST SECURITY COMPANY in Abidjan Cote d´Ivoire in one trunk box as family valuables and treasures with my name as the beneficiary. The amount is (Ten million, seven hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$10.700,000) We managed to escape to Abidjan the Republic of Cote d´Ivoire through the help of my father’s friend who is a trailer driver. As our travelling document was seized. We am now looking for a trustworthy and God fearing person who will handle this money for rapid profit for the future of me and my younger sister (Sylvie.) For your information, the security company did not know the real content of the box as money and we do not wish them to know until the money is transferred to your account. As it was deposited as family valuables and treasures. Meanwhile, we want to leave Cote d´Ivoire entirely for investment of this money in your country and mostly for our future. We want you to please assist us to claim the box from the WEST COAST SECURITY COMPANY and to deposit the money in your account as to order the bank to transfer the money to your account in your country. As our foreign partner. We have it in mind to reward you with a certain percentage for your assistance as soon as we hear from you. You can reach us by phone at +22507350672, please my sister Sylvie is sick and hospitalised so I spend most time with her at the hospital, so if you call I will give you more details regarding this transaction and our terrible condition here. May God protect and guide you as you assist us. Yours sincerely, Timothy Nicol.
