Dear Faithful,
Good a thing to write you. I have a proposal for you-this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will. I know this proposal will come to you as a surprise because we have not met before either physically or through correspondence. I believe is the will of God.
INTRODUCTION: I am Miss Mary Kono 19 years old and the only daughter of  my late parents Chief and Mrs. Andani Kono   My father was a highly reputable busnness magnet-(a Cocoa Merchant) who operated in  abidjan the capital of Ivory Coast / cote 'd ivoire.

It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on the 12th. Febuary 2006. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled along with him at that time.
But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 4 years old, and since then my father took me so special. Before his death 12/2/ 2006 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told her that he has a private letter for me in my wardrope and its about his deposit, but he never told the lady about the money, instead he said family asset and it was when i got the note i discovered it was all about his money at the sum of  Nine million ,Seven Hundred Thousand United State Dollars.($9.700,000.00) which he deposited as a family asset with a security trust company.
He further told the pastor of the church where he used to worship that he had deposited a family valuables with a security trust company and it is in my name as his only heir apparant in a written note and also to the security company as well. Though, he never disclosed to anybody about the content as money; but made this clear in a private note and kept it in my possession that the content is money so that I can be careful and wise in handling the claim, so he said.

I am just 19 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do. Now I can not lay my hands on the fund because he left an instruction with the Security Company that the Consignment will only be moved abroad upon my presentation of foreign partner. Who will take delivery of the Consignment (1 Trunk Box) on my behalf for investment purpose.Based on this I am contacting you because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.

The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. My Dear, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help me?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3.I will offer you 15% of the total amount of money for your help. 
I want to use this opportunity to assure you of your security on this transaction now and in future. The transaction is 100% risk free. Provided you can give me a very strong assurance and guarantee  that you will be honest with me and dont betray me when you have received the box in your custody.  Please remember to treat this matter as very confidential.
Please, Consider this and get back to me urgently.
May the almighty God bless you,
Yours faithfully.
Mary Kono,
