Dear, Me and my sister got your contact when we were searching for a good honest and reliable person. we prayed over it and decided to reveal to you our problem.I am Joshua Abbey and my sister name is Doris Abbey,the only children of late Dr and mrs. Amos Abbey. Our father was a very wealthy Gold/Diamond dealer in Freetown, the economic capital of Sierra Leone. our father was poisoned to death by his close business associates on one of their outings on a business trip. our mother died years ago, precisely during the child deliverly birth of doris my kid sister and since then our father took us so special.He was also playing the role of a mother to us too. Before the death of our father , in a private hospital in Freetown, he secretly called me by his bed side and told me of a deposit of $5,000,000,00 united state dollars (FIVE MILLION DOLLARS)he concealed in a metallic box and deposited with a finance security company in Abidjan,the economic capital of cote d'Ivoire. He warned me that because of envy that he was poisoned by his close associates. He also advised me to seek for an honest foreigner in a country of my choice those associates will not hurt me and my sister as they have succeeded in poisoning him.For your information ,it has been difficult to know who is an honest person to assist us in this transaction,and i decided to make a try on you. Me and my sister has arrived Abidjan,Republic of Cote D'Ivoire,a nearby country since my uncle wants to kill me because of this certificate of deposits as he have suceeded in collecting all my father's property left behind. He and his wife always punish me and my sister, and have made life very difficult for us.His wife served me and doris a poisoned rice meal , but for the devine mercy, her daughter secretly whispered to me not to eat the meal because there is poison in the rice. i wasted the meal to the bin only to find two dead rat on the bin the following morning and that made me to run away immediately with doris my kid sister to abidjan,the economy capital of ivory coast. And we don't want to stay long here in abidjan since we know anybody here and no much money to pay for our hotel bill. Dear, I honourably seek your assistance to hurry up and come down here in abidjan so that me and doris will take you to the finance security company where our father deposited the money so that we can introduce you and you will help us clear the money and we will go together to a nearby bank and open a new account in your name and transfer the money immediately from the bank to your bank account in your country and together me and doris will enter plane with you and go back to your country with you so that we can continue our education over there and you will help us invest the money in your country.Me and doris has agreed to compensate you with 20% of the money.
