Dear ,

During the heat of the civil war in my country -Sierra Leone,almost all government offices, operations and parastatals were attacked and vandalized. The Sierra Leone's Diamonds Mining Corporation (SLDMC) was in like manner loathed and burnt down to ashes, where and when diamonds worth millions of dollars were stolen by the invading rebel/military forces who attacked many public offices/departments. Many top government officials and senior army officers were selected and assassinated including my father who was a key target because of his very sensitive military position and appointment in the SLDMC. Regreatably, my father late General Alexander Konana was then captured and murdered along with his half brother in cold-blood during a mid-night rebel shoot-out when our official residence in Freetown was ambushed by Fordey Sanko the notorious rebel leader - whose recent death in S/Leonine Prison administered natural justice on him also.

My name is Master Steve Konan, the only surviving Son of the above named Late General Alexandar Konan,a former military chieftain and then acting General co-ordinator of the Sierra Leone Diamond mining cooperation( SLDMC ). I am contacting you to seek your kind assistance to transfer and invest US$8.5 million belonging to my late father which he deposited in a bank here in Abidjan. This money is revenues from solid minerals and diamonds sales which were made during my father's tenure immediately before the out-break of hostilities in my country.

My mother sustained bullet injuries during that fateful night which resulted to her untimely and painful death in a private hospital here in Ivory Coast. Now I am alone as an orphan in a totally strange country without parents, relatives or any body to care for me at this tender age. Before my mother died, she secretly told me that my father deposited some money which he made from diamond sales and contracts in one of the banks here in Ivory Coast and that I should look for a trustworthy foreign- business-partner who would help me to transfer and invest this money in profitable business venture overseas. She told me to do this quickly so that I can leave Ivory Coast then settle down abroad. She gave me the bank documents to prove the deposit and then told me that my father used my name as the only son to deposit the money in the bank. She told me that this is the reason why we came to Ivory Coast. 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 Manager of International remittance who assured me that everything is intact and 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 manager is very concerned because of my age. I am 20 years and as such advised that I should look for a matured person that will represent me at the bank.

If you are willing to assist me, please let me know immediately so that you will arrange the transfer of the money to your account with the bank. Please note that I have decided to offer you 10% of the total money as compensation for your noble assistance in accordance 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, so that I can finish my college education.

Please there is urgent need for the money to be transferred to your account because of the political crises they are having in Côte d'Ivoire now. I am hoping to hear your urgent response so that I will not look for another foreign partner. Thank you and may God bless you and your dear family. email,

Yours sincerely

Master Steve Konan
