Dear Friend,
I wish to solicit your help in migrating to your country and investing my funds. Briefly, I am a Sierra Leonean National and the wife of late Dr SIMON OKO.
Until his death, my husband was the General overseer of the Diamond Mine in Kanema Sierra Leone. untill the military forces loyal to the Government of Ahmed TIJAN KABBAH invaded the diamond mine and assassinated my husband, mistaking him for his brother FRANK OKO who is the deputy to the leader of the revolutionary United Front (RUF ) FODAY SANKOH.
When the news reached me, I hurried gathered some valuables in our family villa and escaped for my dear life.
Among the valuables was a file that contained details of a deposit receipt my husband made in a Bank here in Abidjan Côte d?Ivoire. He deposited 4.5 million US dollars in the Bank in his name SIMON OKO which i was made as the nest of king he made this money from the sale of Gold and diamonds during his time as the General overseer.
Now that i am in Abidjan and verified the transaction, i need your  assistance to move this funds out of Côte d?Ivoire for investment in your country as i cannot invest here due to its nearness to our country and the war still going on there.
i ask you to scout for a viable and lucrative business, so that i can invest wisely.
i have it in mind to give you 10% of the total sum (4.5 million US Dollars)
i will also set aside 5% of the funds for ancillary expenses which you will make in course of this transaction- fax messages, phone calls, air tickets etc.
This fortune i have revealed to you should remain confidential as it only you who i have told about it.
my husband people did not know about this they have taking all his belongings claming that i did not have any child for him so that is why i want every thing to be doon farst so that you will help me imigrate to your country after the transfer and start a new life.
i wait your kind assistant
God Blessed you
