Dear friend, It is my humble pleasure to write you this important letter, irrespective of the fact that we have not met for the first time or known each other before.

My father was killed and mutilated by the military junta led by Major Foday Sankoh after overthrowing the elected government of President Tejan Kabah, Though I do not know to what extent you are familiar with this events and disturbances in Sierra Leone but it has consistent features in news and bulletins. The pressure of war drove the rest of our family out of Sierra Leone into exile where we have been living under political asylum till today. I am now here with my little sister, REASON OF CONTACTING YOU: I hereby inform you that before the death of my Father he handed over to me and my mother a certificate document meant for a secret deposited trunk box which he made in a security company, and he disclosed to me and my mother that the trunk box contains US$10,000.000.00 (TEN MILLIONS UNITED STATES DOLLARS}withholding the truth of the real content for security reasons, even the Security Firm is not aware that the boxes contains Money till now. The box that contianed this money was deposited into a private finance company under his name by it's overseas customers in the heat of the war. He made the deposit in his name with the hope to make investment with the money after the end of the war but unfortunately my father was killed when the conflict intensified as a result of his opposition to the rebel forces. I have contacted the Security Company to confirm the deposit and established ownership. I have decided to solicit for the assistance of an honest and trustworthy person that will assist me in the withdrawal of the trunk boxes for investment purposes. I cannot do it alone due to my present status and total ignorance in business and investment world. You will be given a negotiable percentage of the money at the end of the transaction.
