<DIV>From Mariam Umarh<BR>Ivoiry Coast</DIV>  <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>  <DIV>Greetings,<BR>&nbsp;<BR>It is 
a pleasure 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. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>I am Mariam umarh ,21years old and the 
only daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs..mohamed My father was a highly reputable busnness 
magnet-(a cocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his 
days.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his 
business trips abroad year 12th.Febuary 2004.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected 
to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. But the almighty 
Allah knows the truth!<BR>&nbsp;<BR>&nbsp;My mother died when I was just 4 years old,and since then 
my father took me so special. Before his death on Febuary 12 2004 he called the secretary who 
accompanied him to the
 hospital and told him that he has the sum of three million,United State Dollars.(USD$3000 000) 
left in one of the private security and trust company He further told his lawyer that he deposited 
the money in my name,and finally issued a written instruction to <BR>his lawyer whom he said is in 
possession of all the necessary but legal documents to this consignment and the 
company.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>I am just 21 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know 
what to do.Now I want an a partner overseas who will asist me in claiming the consignment from the 
company where it was deposited. This is 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.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>Sir,I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards.Your 
suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>Now permit me to ask these few 
questions:- <BR>1. Can you
 honestly help me as your daughter? <BR>2. Can I completely trust you? <BR>3. What percentage of 
the total amount in question will <BR>be good for you after the money is in your account? 
<BR>Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as <BR>possible. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>Thank you so 
much.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>My sincere regards,<BR>Mariam umarh <BR></DIV><p>&#32;
