Dear Friend,
My name is Miriam Mustafa,a Sierra Leonean residing in Burkin-Faso,West  Africa.You will be surprise to receive this mail from a total stranger like me,Anyway, i got your contact when i was doing a business research and decided to approach you for assistance.
My father,the late Dr. MUSTAFA  IBRAHIM   was one of the prominent Diamond dealers in my  country Sierra Leone,  he was also one of the paramont chiefs in my town before He was murdered in cold blood early last year alongside with my mother by the Rebels of R.U.F when they invaded the town.
When i got home from school to see the remains of my  late father and other family members,i discovered that my home had been burnt down and my parents were both murdered by the Rebels of R.U.F that has been fighting against the legitimate Government in my country since  1992.  My late father deposited the sum of(USD$5.5million) five million,five hundred thousand dollars as a FAMILY TREASURE IN A TRUST COMPANY here in Burkina-Faso,West Africa before his untimely death,this money was meant to be used to build an ultral mordern medical Clinic here in Burkina-Faso for me after I shall have completed my studies as a qualified Dorctor? but untimely death of my parents have denied me this good opportunity.
Now,as the next of kin and the only child;  i am to make the claim  and the ownership of the box containing the money,although the people at the Trust Company are not aware of the contents of the box,But I need a reliable person outside Africa through whom I could move the money abroad and who will subsequently help me to invest the money wisely while I go back to school to complete my education.
Bear in mind that I would  entrust this money in your hands if you would be willing to help me in this matter. I am also willing to give you 30% of the total sum if you will be willing to assist me in this matter.In addition,I will equally deduct 10% after the transfer to cover expenses incurred in the course of moving this money abroad to your account.

If you can assist,please get back to me promptly through my e-mail address so that we can discuss the modalities of making this move. I  will equally insist that you make it a very private and confidential matter.
Please,contact me back through this yahoo id ( for confidentiality of this business.
I look  forward  to be hearing  from you  soonest.
Miss.Miriam Mustafa
