Dear Sir, Good day to you, I am so sorry for sending you unsolicited mail; I am Mr. Charles Guei son a former military president of Ivory Coast in West Africa, General Robert Guei. I am presently in Dubai UAE in search of a reliable and capable business man who will be of help to me to guide me in investment in any profitable business here in UAE.I got your contact from a Business directory I saw in my agent's office and decided to contact you directly for the sake of business. I came across this said amount meant for investment when my elder brothers cheated me by changing the content of the will prepared by our father before he was killed in a coup plot that resulted in civil war in my country. I came across the documents relating to this deposit which contained a deposit of $7.5million us dollars and decided to run to this country before my greedy brothers will get rid of me and the fund. Now the fund is lying in a Security and Vault Company in Africa. On receipt of your willingness to assist me in investing my money wisely, I will advice the concerned Security Vault where the money is lying to lift it through diplomatic mean to you here as the recipient for us to go into partnership and invest the funds as I planed before coming to Dubai. If you are willing to go into partnership with me in this, please give me your confidential contact phone number so that we can see and discuss in details. Thank you once again for your interest. Mr. Charles Guei
