From: Mrs. Isabel Andrade
I make this distress call with heart full of tears to seek your urgent help. I am Mrs. Isabel Andrade, the wife of late major general Raimundo Andrade, former minister of defence and chief of the army staff of the republic of guinea Bissau in the defunct government of Mr. Kriulo Soares Viera. My husband died during the recent coup d'etat, which deposed the former head of state.
In the wake of the incidence, I fled together with my family to Cotonou Benin Republic and took refuge to avoid further oppression from the incumbent government who have seized all my family's properties and seized all accounts belonging to the allies of the deposed president. Due to this unfortunate situation, I am desperately searching for reliable and honest partner to assist me in receiving as quickly as possible, the sum of fifteen million united states dollars (US$15,000,000.00) which is the only money that is still safe and intact deposited by my husband in a security company.
I am therefore passionately requesting your kind help to move this money out for safety to your country under your care. I have solidified every arrangement to prepare legal papers making you the trustee and beneficiary of this fund for a hitch free withdrawal, if I will get your positive response to this urgent plea.
As we meet in due course, we shall be discussing further on other important issues regarding mutual business relationship and possibility of securing a resident-permit for me and my children in your country.Personally, I am not comfortable and do not feel safe staying here in Cotonou due to security reasons as my life is at risk. I must confess that I repose much hope and trust in your helping me out of this ugly crises.
I am equally willing to compensate your kind efforts and co-operation with four million united state dollars (US$4,000,000.00) only. Please be informed that I am contacting your based on trust. Please do not disappoint me, your security is highly guaranteed; absolute confidentiality should also be adhered to. Please! Please! I pray your urgent assistance.
Contact me immediately only through my private email address, email@example.com also send to me your full name and address, private phone and fax number so that we can proceed immediately with the change of documents.
Waiting to hear from you.
Mrs. Isabel Andrade
