My Dearest One,

I am Mr Phillip Desmond. from Sierra Leone residing in Abidjan cote d'ivoire. I am a orphan being 
that I lost  my father a couple of years ago. My father MR William Desmond. was a serving director 
of  the Cocoa exporting board until his death .  my late father was killed by his business 
associates because of his well doing in business Before his death he had a Consignment here in Cote 
d'Ivoire containing $12 Million dollars which he distinguished and deposited with a Security 
company in their security  vault although declaered as containing family Valuables for security 
reasons and for onward investment. I  want you to do me a favour to receive this funds to a safe 
account in  your country or any safer place as the beneficiary.

My reason therefore for contacting you is because I found myself in a situation that I cannot help 
than to look for a Foreigner who will help me claim the consignment my late Father deposited with 
the security company due the Agreement he signed with the security company when he deposited the 

He deposited the consignment to the Beneficiary of his Foreign Partner and signed an Agreement with 
the security company that the consignment can only be delievered to his Foreign Partner'contact 
address Particulars which he was to submit to them later because he wanted to invest the money 
abroad but as fate had it, he died without supplying the Particulars of his then Foreign Partner to 
the security company for the delivery of the consignment.Based on this, I am obliged to look for a 
Foreigner whom I will use his particulars and information and register with the security company 
company as the Foreign Partner of my late Father/the beneficiary of the consignment and my investor 
and request them to release the consignment to you.

Please you are to send me the following particulars so that i will register it with the security 
company as the partner to my late father after which i will give you the contact of the company and

kin when he deposited the consighnment.This includes:

I have accepted to  compensate you with 20% of the total money in the consignment for your 
assistance.Please , I am putting all my hope and trust in you, do not disappoint me or let me down 
.  I want you to put your skill in work and assist me to retrieve this consignment.Finally, please 
try and keep everything about this transaction very confidential and secret for security reasons 
and my safety because if the family members of my late fathers knows of this money, they will take 
it from me and may even and kill me .I have all the deposit documents with me
as prooves.
