Dear Good Friend, First, I must apologise to you, for using this medium to communicate about this transaction, though it is my great pleasure in writing you this letter on behalf of my colleague and myself. I am Mr.Ismailia C.Colly. the Deputy Operations of cms (CREDIT MUTUAL DU SENEGAL)Banks /Insurance Institutions Dakar Senegal. In 1993, A America Navy ET1 Rick.Wyat. brought a luggage marked family treasure to me for safe-keeping in our Financial Institutions. The navy captain is working with Senegalese Shipping Company,and the CAPTAIN in-charge of the ship going through Atlantic ocean. We became intimate more when he realized my profession,there and then, he informed me about the consignment. Due to that he is a busy man he call me one day and brought the box to my office on one of his trip. I assisted him in depositing the treasure and CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT issued to him. Moreover, he saw me as someone trustworthy and decided to hand-over the document to me for safe-keeping. He left back to his country, though he is always on the Sea being a Sailor. All our correspondence was through telephone our discussion stopped since 2001 when I called his telephone number in 20 January 2002, and beholds someone else had bought over the telephone,the new subscriber told me that Captain Rick Wyat. died along-side, his wife and only two children at the World Trade Center during the BIN-LADEN bomb blast, in America. This news shocked me so much that Captain Rick Wyat. did not leave any of his contact address or next of kin, and since then all plans to trace any of his relatives proved abortive. Honestly, I became confused,and resorted to myself that i should open the box a little to know the content proper. The box was carefully opened and i find out that it is filled with MILLIONS OF ONE HUNDRED UNITED STATE DOLLARS, denomination i carefully defaced.and i secretly took the box out from the banking department and deposited it our Insurance Institutions with a security department here. I have concluded plans to invest the money total eighteen million united stated dollars $18m USD out of Dakar Republic of Senegal and required assistance from a Would-be Trustworthy Over-Seas Partner who will help us receive the vault of money overseas. If you can assist me, I can arrange and bring the money to your country by the help of Diplomats or transfer it into any account of yours, for investment. I will offer you 20% of the total sum for your assistance and commission. Be rest-assured that the transaction is 100% risk-free and your urgent response is highly needed state your opinion eighter your in or out. So i cannot look for another person. I am looking forward for your earliest reply. stating your wish in this deal. Thanks and best regards. Mr.Ismailia C.Colly.
