Dear Sir/Madam,My name is Mr. Ikechukwu Hile former personal assistance to the Late President Gnassingbe Eyadema of Togo, a small country in the West Africa. The President passed away recently. I got your contact through an Italian businessman that stayed and operated in Lome the capital city of Togo.During the last days of the President, he delegated me in my capacity as his personal assistant to assist him to secure various properties in France to the tune of Euros25M (Twenty Five Million Euros). This was not done before the death of the President.
After the death of the President the Army brought his eldest son into power. This brought a lot of disagreement from the opposition. As the constitution allows the speaker of the Parliament to take over power in case the President should declared not fit to rule, either through falling health or death. Since then there have been series of unrest in the country. In the light of this unrest I decided to seek refuge in Nigera The Euros25M the late President release to me for the purchase of the properties in France was in Cash. Due to present political crisis in Togo; I decided to move the money with me to Nigeria.
At present I am a refugee in Nigeria and as result of my refugee status I am not allowed to own a bank account in the Country. I hereby appeal to you to assist me in Banking and investing this money in your country. If you are interested in my proposal, I have decided to give you 40% of the fund, while 10% has been mapped out for local and International running cost. This proposal should be treated as top secret in view of the amount involved, as well as my position.
Please contact me on my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Yours Faithfully, Mr. Ikechukwu Hile _________________________________________________________________Express yourself instantly with MSN Messenger!
