My name is Alberto George, and I am writing you from
my home in Santa Clara, about 165 miles east of
Havana, the Capital City of Cuba. Santa Clara is known for two landmarks; The famous Revolutionary, Che Guevera is buried here; and it is home to one
of Cuba's largest universities, La Universidad Central "Martha Abreu" de Las Villas.

This is a compelling story, and I beg you to be
patient and read through to the end.I was adopted in
1962, at age 14 months by Mr. Giovanni  George, the
Sugar and tobacco millionaire; some say he also made
his fortune from the lucrative illicit drugs trade.
My adoption brought so much controversy (probably
because I am black and A deaf, my family did not know that I am a deaf until the age of 5), that Mr. George was forced by his family to put me into a foster home at age 5 , where I stayed until maturity; Like most Cuban youths,I dreamt of freedom, which every one here knows is called! America; like most youths, in time, I joined an Anti-Castro group and that merited automatic 24 hours round the clock surveillance by the Secret Police, but this is also normal in Cuba!

Mr. George, my father nevertheless funded my
education through the above mentioned university,
where I graduated in Automobile Engineering. I am now a mechanic, making just enough to take care of my wife Maria, and 3 boys, Junior, Jose, and Giovanni.

Sadly, My father died in 1996; left only his wife and family (he died childless), and I was not invited to his funeral by his family, but we mourned him deeply;I had no memory of my real father; but I loved him for his kindness to me; he frequently defied his family to visit me When I got married, he gave my wife a ring present which we later found out was a diamond ring! His Last Will and testament was read and probated. No mention was made of me and my family. Understandably,I carried on with my life.

Two weeks ago, I receive! d a letter from Ivory Coarst
In Africa, from a private Security deposit firm, and
the contents of that letter put me into shock! I kept the letter for a week without mentioning it to my wife. Eventually I revealed everything to her
apparently My late father,Mr. George had provided for us afterall! Mr. Giovanni George had bought shares worth about 10 Million USD in 1978, (when I turned 18) and left it in my name; over time, My father bought more shares and increased the shareholdingto USD30 million! ( I am made to understand that the current market value is far in excess of this figure).
The letter explained that my father deposited USD45million after the shares are being sold with SECURITY DEPOSIT VAULT IN IVORY COARST, AFRICA and according to the terms and agreement reached with my late father, the Funds were to be delivered to me (The Beneficiary) one calendar year after his death;

The manager of this firm in his letter apologized to
me for waiting so long to contact me; information of
my father's  death simply did not reach him until a
chance newspaper publication alerted him of the fact.I was then invited to come forward to Ivory Coarst In Africa , to claim my Inheritance or arrange with them to ship the consignment to my designated area! The total current value of my shares now after being sold and deposited in a private security company stand at approximately USD45 million!

But this simple invitation to travel to Ivory Coarst
or arrange to ship the consignment to Cuba is fraught with problems!  I have! no International Passport! It is impossible to travel out of Cuba, unless with special permission which will of course take months of paperwork to procures an Anti-Castro sympathizers , I have absolutely no hope of leaving Cuba legally.The only option is to leave by illegal ferry to the American Coast of Miami, which is extremely dangerous,every one knows that success rate is about 20%, the unlucky get captured and repatriated back, to prison! But the rich and the connected have a better chance by using low flying aircraft ( which will beat the Cuban Radar) to smuggle them selves out!

I am therefore decided to arrange the shippment of the consignment to safety abroad and investments...The consignment with the SECURITY DEPOSIT VAULT "is no ready to ship"

I desperately need your help!  I need you to contact the Ivory Coarst Security Company on my behalfas the "CONSIGNEE"; secure the the money and arrange to ship the consignment to you. Once the money is shipped to you and  secured, I will make the usual underground deal to be smuggled out of Cuba by aircraft, to freedom!

There is absolutely NO RISK to you in this transaction; I and my family are the ones at risk...;  You can reach me through these confidential Email
 for the transaction....

In consideration of your assistnce during the course
of this transaction, I freely offer you 30% of the
total fund. If you are willing to help me recover my
inheritance, please so indicate in your return reply
mail and I will follow up with more details of the
Ivory coarst Company contact address and also more
details of the shippment and the process arranged.
You will then contact the Ivory coarst Security Deposit Company/Shipping Company and thereafter schedule to ship the consignment to you as the "CONSIGNEE" to close the deal on my behalf and put the USD45million safely into the Banking system or safe custody and I will arrange immediately with my family to leave CUBA to meet you in your country for the share of the money and for Investment purposes!

By return mail, I will advise you the details for the shipment of the consignment to you and give you more details. Please bear in mind that this transaction is not illegal, and there is no risk to you. The shipment will come with every proper documentation, including a Shipment Airway bill and a certificate of Origin
