Dear, With due respect to your humble self, I write you this letter which I believe you would be of great assistance to me and my children. I am sorry to disturb you with this; I have no other option than to inform you of my situation and intentions I am Mrs Dorathy Camile, the wife of the late Dr Jeffery Camile of the blessed memory. Prior to my husband assassination by the rebel forces loyal of the Revolutionary United Front (RUF), He was the Director General National Gold and Diamond Mining Corporation of Sierra-Leone. Few days before my husband was assassinated, he instructed me and my children (Jeff Jr. and Daniel) to move out of Sierra-Leone and also to go in his underground strong room where the documents of money he has deposited in a security company in Cote d’Ivoire in a trunk as family valuables and treasures with the name of my first son Jeff as the beneficiary. The amount is US $10,500.000.00 (Ten Million Five hundred thousand United States Dollars.)We managed to escape through the help of my husband’s friend who is a trawler, as our travelling document was seized. For your information, the security company does not know the real content of the Trunks and we do not wish them to know until the money is transferred to your account, as it was deposited as family valuables and treasures. Meanwhile, I want to invest in your country because of the unstable political situation and mostly for the future of my children. I want you to please assist us to releasing the boxes from the security company and moving the funds into your account. All will be strictly done confidential. Do not hesitate to send me e-mail immediately you receive this letter to enable us proceed in earnest toward retrieving the trunk and transferring of the money into your account. Finally, please ensure that no one else knows about this money as it is only me, my sons and you know about the existence of this money. Please even if you don’t want to assist me, please don’t expose this for my security, I plead. May your day be blessed. I am looking forward to hear from you. I count on you and experience and expertise. Please reply to: email@example.com Yours sincerely, Mrs Dorathy Camile
