<DIV>With due respect and humility I write you this proposal which I believ=
e would be of great interest to you. I am Mrs&nbsp;Mariam Kone&nbsp;a Sierr=
a Leone National and the wife of Late Dr LAMINE&nbsp;KONE of the blessed me=
mory. Prior to my husband assassination by the rebel forces loyal to FODAY =
SANKOH , he was the Director General National Gold Diamond Mining Corporati=
on of Sierra Leone.</DIV>
<DIV>Two days before my husband was assassinated, he instructed me and my t=
wo sons TONY and FRANK to move out of Sierra Leone immediately. Before the =
powerful Economic Community of West African States (ECOMOG) forces interven=
ed which eventually resulted into a brutal civil war. I and my children man=
aged to escape to Abidjan, the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire through the help o=
f my husband's friend who is a trawler.</DIV>
<DIV>&nbsp;We came into Abidjan with some valuables including a cash sum of=
oxes which I deposited with a private security company here in Abidjan - Co=
te d'Ivoire in my son's name (TONY KONE). For your information, we did not =
disclose the real content of the boxes to the security<BR>company and we do=
 not wish them to know this under any circumstances. Rather, we deposited t=
he boxes as containing family valuables. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>Meanwhile, I want to=
 leave Cote d'Ivoire entirely with this money for investment in your countr=
y because of the stable political situation and mostly for the future of my=
 children. Right now I am seeking for a foreign partner who will assist me =
retrieve and serve as the guardian of this fund with whom I can plan the be=
st way to move out this fund for investment purposes which is my<BR>motive =
for contacting you.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>&nbsp;Moreover, you are requested to assis=
t in the following areas: That you will be required to negotiate on how bes=
t to transfer this fund without attracting much taxation. That you will ass=
ist in providing me and my family a permanent residence / Resident permit i=
n your country after this<BR>money has been transferred to your country.</D=
<DIV>That you will be responsible in advising us to invest this fund a viab=
le venture in your country. That you will pay a short working visit (2 days=
) to meet with me and my family face to face here in Abidjan- Cote d'Ivoire=
 to enable us establish a personal contact with you to ensure some amount o=
f confidence between us. We have it in mind to reward you handsomely for yo=
ur assistance. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>We are prepared to give you 30 % of the total =
sum, and 35% share in the total investment to be<BR>made. Do not hesitate t=
o call my son TONY on his line 00(225) 07 19 23 63 immediately you receive =
this message so to enable us proceed in Ernest towards concluding this tran=
saction. Please ensure that no one else know about this money as it is only=
 myself, my son, yourself and the EVANGELIST of the CHURCH where we worship=
 who know about this money. </DIV>
<DIV><BR>May God bless you as you assist us. <BR>Yours sincerely, <BR>Mrs M=
