Dear Friend, Let me first of all introduce myself to you, I am Mrs. Anita Baker from Ivory Coast. I am married to Mr. Tesco Baker who worked with a construction company in Thailand for twenty Years before he died in the tsunami disasters(may his soul rest in peace), we were married with only a male child named Buka. Since his death I decided not to re-marry. I went through your profile and decided to contact you because I'm interested in investing in your country which is investment friendly. When my late husband was Alive he deposited the sum of 11.5 million dollars (Eleven Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in a security company. Presently this money is still with the Security company and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary in regards to the fund, I Told them I will Issue a letter of authorization to my son to receive it on my behalf since I cannot come over.My son is inexperience and I would appreciate if you could guide and assist him in making the right investment. I am presently in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment of Cancer of the lungs in a hospital , I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to Live. So I now decided to contact you to assist my only son ( Buka ) to claim this money From where it was deposited and guide him for an investment as you might have more business / investment experience more than him.As soon as I receive your reply I shall open up a contact between my son (Buka) and you. For your assistance I and my son Buka have accepted rewarding you with 15% from the principal amount as you shall give every needed assistance is making sure the said fund ($11.5 Million) is successfully retrieved from the safe deposit company and also transfered to your country successfully without any hitch . Do not worry yourself concerning the genuity of the fund as all the necessary documents of the fund are intact with my son Buka .All you need to do is to contact him only after you accept my offer,and start all the arrangement of retrieving and transfering of the fund. Lastly, I honestly pray and believe that this money when its finally moved to your country will be used for the said purpose of investing in profitable project because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without God is vanity upon vanity. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein and Keep this contact confidential till such a time this funds get to your Custody,this is to ensure that nothing jeopardizes my last wish on Earth.
