Good day Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you. I got your contact from the International web site directory. I prayed over it and selected your name among other names due to what my mind told me to that you are a reputable and trust worthy person I can expose my ordeal to and do business with. So I must not hesitate to confide in you for this simple and sincere business. I am Ahmed Hassan, the only Son of late Mr MOHHAMED HASSAN My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan,the economic capital of Ivory Coast, before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discus on a business deal. When my mother died on the 6th August 1996, my father took me special because I am the only child and motherless. Before the death of my father on 30th June 2005 in a private hospital here in Abidjan, he secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has a sum of $4.500.000(Four Million, five hundred thousand dollars) left in a suspense account in a local Bank here in Abidjan, that he used my name as his only Son for the next of kin in deposit of the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth and some huge amount of money his business associates supposed to balance him from the deal they had, that he was poisoned by his business associates, that I should seek for a God fearing foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose, (such as real estate management). Please, I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways. 1) To receive the money for me in your account by providing a Bank account where this money would be transferred to. 2) To serve as the guardian of this since I am a child of 19 years and I do not have business experience. 3) To help me come over to your country as soon as the money is transferred to your account sothat i will continue my education and a new life. I am willing to give you 20% of the sum as compensation for effort input after the successful transfer of this fund to your designate account overseas. Anticipating to hear from you quick plesae. Thanks and Allah Bless. yours faithfully AHMED HASSAN Awaiting your urgent response to: (firstname.lastname@example.org)
