Assalamu Alaikom I am Azhar Asjad, from Ivory Coast. I lost my Dad a couple of months ago.My Father was a serving director of the Cocoa exporting board until his death .
He was assassinated by the rebels following the political uprising. Before his death he deposited the sum of US$5.2 Five Million Two hundred United States dollars here in a Private Security Finance Company which was for the importation of cocoa processing machine. Note, according to my late father, the money is in a trunk box and he did not disclose to the Security Finanace Company the real content of the box he did it to reduce the cost of demourage fees and for the safety of the fund according to him, he decleard to the Security Finance Company that the box contains a family valuables. I want you to do me a favour, to help me invest this fund in your country for business investment as I do not have any knowledge of investment, that will be after we retreive it from the Security Finance Company I have plans to do investment in your country, like real estate and industrial production. This is my reason for writing to you. Please if you are willing to assist me and my mother who is serious sick now in the hospital, indicate your interest in replying soonest. Thanks and best regards . Azhar Asjad and Mrs. Itimad Asjad (my mother) _________________________________________________________________Ten : Messenger en illimité sur votre mobile ! http://mobile.live.fr/messenger/ten/
