Dearest One, I felt good to write you for a suggestion request which is however not a mandatory but for an investment in your country. Your profile pushed me to send you this mail, Actually, I am Gladys williams. 22years old and the only dauther of my late parents Mr.and Mrs. williams. My father was a highly reputable business magnet-(a cocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad year on 12th December 2006.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 4 years old as my late father,and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on December 12th 2006 he called me behind his bed and told me that he has the sum of Seven million, seven hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$7.700,000) left in one of the Bank here in (COTE D IVOIRE, IVORY COST). He further told me that he deposited the money in my name, Now, i have went to the Bank to claim the fund, they told me that i am too young to handle this fund, unless i reach 30years Old before they will release the fund to me. Dear One, i am only 22 years old dont know what to do,i can not wait till i reach 30 years old,do to my late Father reletives are wicked, they may kill me as they kill my father, i am pleading for you to help me stand in the Bank as my foriegn partner to enable them release this money to you, so that i will come over to your peace full country to continue my education while you put the rest of the fund in a good profitable business investiment. I am just 22 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do.This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards.Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions:- 1. Can you honestly help? (i) to transfer this fund in your account? (ii) To invest it promptly? 2. Can we trust each other? To avoid betrayal at the end? 3. What could be your percentage of the total sum immediately the transfer is done? Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Thank you so much. Yours faithful, Gladys williams. _________________________________________________________________MSN Messenger : discutez en direct avec vos amis ! http://www.msn.fr/msger/default.asp
