Dearest one, I know that this proposal will come to you as a big surprise considering the fact that we have not had any formal acquaintance before or met in person but all the same I want you for the sake of God to give this an immediate attention in view of the fact that the security of life and possession is at stake. I am Fatou Mohammed a 24 years old girl from war ravaged SIERRA LEONE but presently leaving in Abidjan Ivory coast with my brother Hassan who is 16 years old. My father Alhaji Ibrahim Mohammed who before his untimely assassination by the rebels was the Director of SIERRA LEONE Diamond corporation (SLDC).He was killed in our government residential house along side two of my other brothers, two house maids and security aid, fortunately for me and my younger brother including our mother we were on a weekend visit to our home town. A as we got the news of the tragedy, we immediately managed to ran into neighboring Ivory coast for refuge. In the same vain, as Faith would have it we lost our dear mother after a month we lost our father (may soul rest in peace) as a result of what the Doctor called cardiac arrest. As we were coming into this country ,we had some documents of a deposit of $ 28,500.000 USD (Twenty Eight million Five hundred thousand USD ) made by my late father in a security and trust company, according to the note we found in our fatherís brief case, he intended to use this fund for his international business transaction after his tenure in office but was unfortunately murdered. We have located the security company where the money is deposited with the help of an attorney and established ownership having been told that the consignment is been held at their head in Europe for security reasons. Though, our father did not declare the deposit as real cash rather as family treasures/valuables Worth US$28.5M. Please considering the bitter experiences we had in our country and the war still going on especially in diamond area which incidentally is where we came from plus the incessant political upheavals and hostilities in this country Ivory coast, we desire seriously to leave here and live the rest of our life into a more peaceful and politically stable country like yours hence this proposal and request is made to you. I therefore on behalf on my only brother seek your kind assistance towards helping us to claim the money from where is deposited. My attorney will work out a change of ownership to your name so that you will be legally empowered to represent me claim the money from the company. After the conclusion of the transaction, you will help us to invest the money into a lucrative business and also assist my brother get a college admission to further his education. Please I know that this letter may sound strange and incredible to you but the CNN and the BBC African bulletin normally have it as their major news features .Therefore for the sake of God and humanity kindly give an immediate and positive consideration. I will willingly agree to any suitable percentage of the money you will propose as your compensation for your assistance with regards to the above .please in view of our sensitive refugee status and as we are still conscious of our father's enemies, I would like you to give this a highly confidential approach. I await your response. Best Regards. Fatou Mohammed
