DEAR SIR/MADAM ASSIST US WITH GOOD FAITH Alternative Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. I do not mean to embarras you by this proposal, but to know if i can confide in you for our safety and also to seek your utmost assistance,it is my pleasure to write you Based on the information and recommendation I got about quick growth of investment in your country. My name is HARRIS and Sister JANNET KONE we are the children of Late General ALFRED KONE the former Director of military inteligence and special acting General Manager of the Sieria Leone Diamond mining coperation(SLDMC ) I am contacting you to seek your good assistance to transfer and invest (USD 14 million) belonging to my late father which he deposited in a bank in Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire. This money is revenues from solid minirals and dimonds sale which were under my fathers possession before the civil war broke out. Following the brake out of the war, almost all government offices, coperations and parastatals were attacked and vandalized. The SLDMC was loothed and burnt down to ashes, and diamonds worth millions of dollars was stolen by the rebel military forces who attacked my fathers office. Many top government officials and senior army officers were assasinated and my father was a key target because of his very sensitive military possition and appointment in the SLDMC. Regreatably, my father was captured and murdered along with half brother in cool blood during a mid- night rebel shoot-out when our official residence in freetown was armbushed by Fordey Sanko the notorious rebel leader. My mother sustainded very sever bullet injuries which resulted to her untimelyand painful death in a private hospital here in Cote D'Ivoire. Now we are alone in a totally strange country without parents, relatives or any body to care for us at our tender ages. Before our mother died, she told us that our father deposited some money which he made from diamond sales and contracts at this bank here in Cote D'Ivoire and that we should pray and find a trust worthy foreign business partner who would help us to transfer and invest this money in profitable business venture overseas. She told us to do this quickly so that we can leave Cote D'Ivoire with our cousin brother-Arthur who is here in the camp with us and then settle down abroad. She gave us all the bank documents to prove the deposit and then told us that my father used my name as the only son to deposit the money in the bank. She told us that this is the reason why we came to Cote D'Ivoire. My mother died afterwards. May her spirit rest in perfect peace. I have gone to the bank to make inquires about this money and I spoke with the director of International remittance who assured me that the everything is intact and he promised to help me transfer this money to my foreign partners bank account as soon as I provide my partners foreign bank account for them. However, the director is very concerned because of my age, I am 25 years and as such promised to help me and he would like to speak with my partner to ensure that this money is invested wisely in only profitable business because of his personal interest and sympathy for us. If you are will to assist us, please let us know immediately and provide us with your following information. 1. Your full names and address, tel/ fax 2. Account name and number 3. swift code. Please note that I can only offer you 25% of the total money as compensation for your noble assistance in accodiance with my mothers advise. I am interested in any profitable commercial venture which you consider very good in your country and you would also get a school for me, my little sister and cousin so that we can finish our colledge education. I am hoping to hear your urgent response so that I can not look for another foreign partner. Thank you and may God bless you and your dear family. Yours son and daugther HARRIS and Sister JANNET KONE. --------------------------------------------------------- Juega y llévate una PS2 two: http://juegos.ya.com/consolas_y_pc/2005/09/concurso-ps2.html Ya.com ADSL 24h + Llamadas Nacionales y Locales 24h + Llamadas a MÓVILES.
