Dear ,
My name is Elvis sankoh  from Sierra Leonian. I am 22 years old and a student.  Please I would like 
you to assist me as urgent as you can,before they kill me.My father is a wealthy cocoa 
merchant.Trouble began early last two year when  my father's associates began suspecting that my 
father is not givingn proper accounts of all the tonnes of cocoa being cultivated by local farmersn 
in  some villages.
This mistrust deepens between Oct-Sept, 2005 when they discovered avery large some of money my 
father deposited with a Bank here in ABIDJAN-COTE D'IVOIRE (FORMALLY IVORY COAST in West Africa. As 
a result of this discovery  and the envyn on the money he was poisioned by his associates.At his 
hospital bed ,he revealed to me the reasons of his sickness and directed me where to get the 
documents of the said deposit which he made on my name as the next of kin,being the only child He 
dvised me that in case  he die, that I should not stay in this country Sierre Leone because his  
associates will equally kill me hence my mother had died five years ago of  breast cancer.
He also instructed that if he dies, I should look for a foreign partner who  will help me to 
transfer the money out of this place (Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire), to his account and the person will 
help me to invest the money in that country. Based on this, I had to contact you bearing in mind 
that you will be humane enough to protect my life. My father finally died on the 5th of june,2006  
and since then, I was out of school and went into hiding because of my father's asociates. All the 
relevant documents of the $18.4 million    United States Dollars) that was deposited in a 
Commercial Bank by my  late father, are with  me now.
I will give you 15% of the total money, if you can help me transferring it  into your Account, for 
onward investment in your  country. Please contact me  immediately with my private email
