Mrs. Dorcas Emmanuel Abidjan, Cote d' Ivoire West Africa. Dearest one, I presume that we have not met neither have we communicated before. Firstly, my name is Mrs. Dorcas Emmanuel I am the wife of late Morrison Emmanuel. My late husband Morrison Emmanuel who was a business tycoon based here in Cote d'Ivoire was also the chairman Chief Executive Hills Hotels. Died last months at the age of 53 after a brief illness at Hospital here in Cote D'Ivoire Could you believe that the tradition and custom of the town and state where my late husband came from demands that any woman who does not have a male child for the husband, that when ever the husband dies, all the properties including cash will be shared among the late husband brothers and the woman will be sent out of the husband house just like that. My dear, this is exactly what I am going through right now since last months my husband died. My late husband brothers has taken all the properties belonging to my late husband including bank account and as well sent me out of my husband house just because I do not have a male child for my late husband. This is a waked tradition and believes. As am talking to you now, I and my daughter are going through hell at the moment. Right now, I am having in my position all the vital documents relating to the sum of $9 million dollars which my late husband deposited with a Security Company in a trunk box here in (ABIDJAN) Cote d ‘ Ivoire and he made all the vital documents with my name as the next of kin before his death. At the time of Deposit my late husband did not disclose the contents of the box to the Security Company as containing money rather he Deposited it as FAMILY VALUABLES, (DEED OF LODGE) for security reasons here in ( ABIDJAN )COTE D ' IVOIRE, and he made all the vital documents with my name as the next of kin before his death. Please remember that I cannot make use of this fund here due to forces Surrounding me at the moment. Please have mercy at the poor widow like me and help me out of this mess. I strongly believe that the only way I can secure this money for myself is to act fast now and lift this money overseas, which is the main reason why I am contacting you for your assistance. Please, as soon as this fund is lifted into your country, you can go ahead and have 20% for your time and patience in helping me. Please if you are willing to help, kindly reply to me ASAP. I look forward to hearing from you immediately. Yours Sincerely, Mrs. Dorcas Emmanuel.
