Hello Dear,It is my pleasure to contact you today after praying fervently in this order, for a business venture which I intend to establish in your country.Though I have not met with you before but I am optimistic that our coming together will bear fruits. My name is Godwin Griffis a citizen of Cote D'Ivoire.The only child of late Mr. Cisse Idrissa Griffis a wealthy cocoa merchant. My father was among the victims of the war that broke out in my country between the rebel group and the Army which resulted to many deaths. He died after five days in a private hospital.
I didn't know that my father was going to leave me after I had lost my mother. Before he passed away, he told me about the safe deposit of a Trunk Box that contains $9,000,000 (Nine Million United States Dollars) which he made with a security company for safe keeping in this very country. I have verified and confirmed the deposit to be intact. And he registered the box as an African Artwork belonging to his business associate abroad.
After the burial, my late father's family took possesion of all his properties simply because my mother was not legally married to my father. My father had already wedded another woman who never had a child and when my father pregnated my mother, he has to take her home as a wife but my father's family refuse to recognise my mother as my father's wife but my father has never denied us anything as his own till his death. As he was about to pass away in the hospital after he disclosed this secret to me, he told me to leave immediately to this country and I should never told anyone my whereabout. Now I am left with nothing except the deposited trunk box that contains the above mentioned amount which they are not aware of.
I would have loved it most if you can come down to this country for this purpose to make this claim as the very business associate to my late father. I have decided to gratify you with 40% of the total sum, for every of your assistance in this project.
Thanks as I awaits for your immediate response. Most importantly I would love you to respond quickly for the execution of this project, hence my entire life hope and future depends solely on this deposited consignment.
Yours Faithfully, Godwin. _________________________________________________________________ Testez Windows Live Mail Beta ! http://www.ideas.live.com/
