Dear Sir, 

My name is Dr.Mathieu Kuta.(Chairman)F.C.A.B. I have been instructed by my =
colleagues to seek for a reliable and trustworthy firm or individual from =
your country who could assist us to transfer the total sum of US$25M (Twenty =
Five million USDollars)into his/her account. The Government has approved the =
payment of this fund only waiting for the beneficiary to come for the claim.

SOURCE OF THE FUND: The fund originated from a contract awarded to a foreign =
firm for the construction of   tele-network, pipeline,rehabilitation and =
renovation of the International Airport . The original contract value was =
purposely over invoiced by us (the Allocation Board Committee) to the tune of =
US$25M. Before we could use the umbrella of the original contractor to claim =
this fund, war started in Ivory Coast , 2002. Now the office of the Prime =
Minister headed by the former rebel leader Mr SORO GUILLAUME decided to pay =
off all the outstanding contract debts to redeem the country's image.

RIGHT NOW: The contract is complete. And for this fund to be claimed, has to =
be with the help of a foreign firm or an individual, who will act as the =
beneficiary. As the Director of the Board,I know everything about this =
contract and the over inflated fund. However, due to my position, I do not =
want to be noticed, hence our goal is to find a reliable and trust-worthy =
firm or individual to assist us deposit this fund in a foreign account.

TO TRANSFER THIS FUND: All modalities have been worked out, we have to use =
the service of an (ATTORNEY) who will handle the registration of your company =
as a sister company and reflect your name as beneficiary of the fund, to =
enable the Board raise a draft of that US$25M, in your favour. If you are =
willing to render us this vital assistance and co-operation, an agreeable 15% =
is to be giving to you for your assistance. 

We will send to you all the necessary documents to prove the genuineness of =
this process for you to contact the Attorney directly. Our board is in charge =
of all contracts Verification, Allocation and Approval that is why we have =
the total confidence on the success of this contract fund. 

AGAIN, when the fund is successfully lodged into your account, the Board have =
also agreed that you should use 5% out of the fund balance(after you have =
subtracted your 15%) to Carter for any security expenses on our-behalf =
including the attorney that will guarantee the safety of the fund.Kindly =
informs us earlier if you are interested to assist. Respond by E-mail.

With best regards
