Warm greetings to you and your family in the name of God. I introduce my self to you with all 
faith, trust and hope you will understand to assist us not to betray us at the end. I was 20 Years 
old boy when my father died 2 years ago in a gold mine in MENDE, Republic of Serria Leone .He was 
into legal gold minning,he has succeded in saving the sum of Ten million, five hundred thousand 
United State Dollars.USD ($10.500,000)left in fixed /suspense account in one of the prime bank here 
in Abidjan  during his Business on Gold, before he went on a trip to Republic of Cote D'Ivoire West 
Africa near by country to our country to save his money for security reasons because of the 
political problem in our country.

Since the death of our father our step mother has been trying to kill  us, she has been given us a 
lot of problem and she have collected every  thing from us and now she still need the deposit 
certificate to claim this fund but I can't give this to her because is all we have to leave with. I 
am  22 years while my sister Lora is 20 years old of age we still need to go  to school and have a 
better education and start a new life. Our step mother knows that our dad has such money but she 
don't know where exactly the fund is been deposited. Right now we are hiding in a refugee camp in 
Ivory Coast. Our father used my name 'elvis sankoh' as the next  of kin to the deposited fund. And 
we ran away with the deposit document, so nobody have access tothe money now except me and my 
younger sister  Lora.

We need help from you to asist us to transfer this money to your  country for investment and who 
will be sincere to invite us to his country  without cheating us or doing bad to us on my arrival

into your account in overseas. Please mail me urgently to know your stands before looking for help

Please permit me to ask, can you honestly help us as your own people  and can we completely  trust 
you? We are kindly requesting for this vital information from you if you agreed to assist us out of
