Attn:Dearest one, 

My name is Master Duke Guei, son of the former military ruler of Ivory coast who was murdered by 
agents of this present government.After my 
fathers death,all of our properties were seized by the goverment,and 
we are still being hunted by agents of this goverment. 

Since I am the only surviving member of my family, I have decieded to 
confide in a reliable person that can help me out of my present 
situation, based on 
what my late father told me before he died. I am presently seeking 
political asylum in the Netherlands, and since the law does not permit 
me on money transaction in such amount, decided to seek for your 

Before my late father died, he told me about a trunk box that he 
deposited in a security company in the Netherlands Europe in my name, 
this trunk box is US$25,000,000.00(Twenty-five million United States 
Dollars Only) and I am the beneficiary of this fortune. This is where 
I need your help to move this money out for safe keeping in your 
country where I can invest and continue with my education. I have 
the security company and they have acknowledged that the box is in 
there possession and that I can claim it whenever I am ready.My 
late-father deposited and registered the box as containing family 
valuables as not to attract the attention of the company's staff or 
more dummurage bills. 

I am willing to give 20% to you for your efforts, if you can help me 
claim this box, 5% will be set aside for what ever expenses that may be 
incured in claiming the box. As soon as you agreed to help, the 
security will forward an a goodwill agreement between you and I through 
Legal department. And all other valid documents as the time of deposit 
will be forwarded to you as soon as you agree to talk with the 
security company who are the custodian of the consignment. 

I sincerely hope that you can be kind enough to help me, i will also 
appeal to you that because of who I am, I will like for this 
information to be kept stictly CONFIDENTIAL because of my safety,as 
soon as you 
retrieve the box , I will come over to your country , while you will be 
incharge of the investment. 

I pray that God will give you the wisdom to help Me, 
Thank you very much, 
Duke Guei (master)
