Dear sir/mrs.
I am Mrs Aminata Sheriff an Iraqi Woman, We are  a
family of three,
My husband and one of my sister are dead in the city
as a result of the cold war going on in my country. 
Before the  death of my husband , he deposited huge
of money with a Bank in Burkina Faso where he had
wanted  us to go and live till the war is over. 

Now that my husband is dead ,I need a business partner
who can help me to claim and use  the fund he
deposited in Africa  for business purposes any where .
I will like you to keep this proposal as a top secret
because of the fear that I might be killed if my
Government happens to know about this ,
based on the reason that my late husband was among
Government officials in Iraq. I am away from the city
where there no
electricity  and telephone communication ,you can
only reach me through

I will be expecting to receive your positive response
to my proposal
Thanks for your anticipated help
Mrs Aminata Sheriff.
