This business proposal to you is strictly 
confidential, with due respect. Sorry at this 
perceived confusion or stress may have receiving this 
letter from me, Since we have not known ourselves or 
met previously. Despite that, I am constrained to 
write you this letter because of the urgency of it.By 
way of self introduction, I am Mrs. Mary Kobe, the 
wife of late Brigadier - Gen.Maxwell Kobe former 
ECOMOG ARMY COMMANDER [West African peacekeeping force 
in Sierra Leone] who died in the Sierra Leone civil 
disturbance [War]. My three daughters and I are 
trapped in obnoxious custom and traditional norms. 
We have suffered maltreatment and untold hardship in 
the hands of my late husband's family, simply because 
I did not bear a male child [heir apparent] for my 
late husband. By tradition, all that my late husband 
had, [wealth] belongs to his brothers/family. And 
myself is to be remarried by his immediate younger 
brother which I vehemently refused. They have taken 
all that I suffered with my husband to acquire 
including treasures, houses and his bank particular 
seized by them. I wanted to escape to the abroad with 
my children on exile, but again 
they conspired and stole my international passport and 
other traveling document to further frustrate me. 
Thank God, two weeks ago, I received Key Text Code 
from a Security Company in EUROPE, that my late 
husband deposited U.S $14.2 Million cash with this 
security company in ONE OF THE EUROPEAN STATEs. It has 
therefore, become very necessary and urgent to contact 
someone, a foreigner like you to help me 
receive/secure these funds overseas in a reliable bank 
Account (presumably an empty Bank Account, if 
available) and to help invest it on our behalf as 
well, while we find a way of getting out to meet with 
you in your country. 
These funds are kept 
with the Security Company in EUROPE to avoid 
detection, seizure or diversion. I have had several 
telephone discussions with the Director of the 
security company in Europe,who has express willingness 
to help me on meeting the company's demands. This is 
why I have contacted you to help save my children and 
I, receive these funds on our behalf. But, you would 
need to give me sufficient assurance that if you help 
me, you would not divert the funds. 
My children and I have resolved to give you 20% of the 
total sum. This is all my children and I have got to 
live on. 
Please, I have reposed my confidence in you and hope 
you will not disappoint me. I look forward to your 
urgent response, including: 
-name(s) in full 
-your phone/ mobile No 
-and also your fax no for easier communication 
-your address 
NB: The secret codes (e.g Pin No., Secret Access Code) 
for this fund are safely kept with me which I can give 
you as soon as you express desire to help me. 
you can contact me on this email,,,, 
Stay blessed.
