  Dear Sir / Madam,

  PLEASE REPLY THROUGH MY ALTERNATIVE EMAIL:

 In my request for a reputable person to engage in a
 mutual business relationship, I got your contact
 through internet.As introduction, I am the only
 surviving daughter of late Chief Mark Maitama, the
 paramount chief of Munsha District of SierreLeone
 who was killed on January 8 2002, by the
  trigger-happy rebels. Most unfortunately for me I
  came from a polygamous family, and a student but out
  of school because of this problem. During my
  fatherís lifetime, he was actively engaged in
  ILLEGAL MINING AND SALES OF DIAMOND, from where he
  made his enormous wealth.
  Prior to my fatherís death, he left a "WILL" with
  his lawyer, which was made available to us upon
  Observation and conclusion of burial befitting of my
  father. And as the only daughter most of his
  properties were willed to me, most importantly is
  the sum of US$15M [fifteen million United States
  dollars} which he deposited in a private security
  company in Soa-Tome & Princepe which has a branch in Madrid Spain this is also among the 
inheritance from my
  deceased father.
  Since introduction of this "WILL" all my fatherís
  relatives have not been at peace with me, they were
  not happy how my father assigned all the enormous
  wealth to me. They have systematically and
  forcefully collected from me all documents of the
  properties "willed" to me. Not including a huge
  amount of money in one of the banks in SierreLeone
  which they could not withdraw due to a court order
  restraining either party from making withdrawals
  pending the determination of a litigation filled by
  my fatherís relations challenging the "WILL"
  Now since I am too hard for them the (relatives) to
  subdue, they were making attempts to kill me so that
  nobody can stop them from carrying out their act, as
  they have succeeded in killing my mother last year.
  Infact the fear and warning of killing has griped me
  so much that I could not bear it anyone, hence I ran
  away from our family house to live with a school
  mate of mine whose father is a military man, with
  advise of my fatherís lawyer to safeguard my life
  and this US$15 million that was not known to them.
  Considering my age and inexperienced in business and
  investment procedures, please I want you to help me
  in taking good custody of this funds and invest it
  in a profitable venture in a country where there is
  Economic and political stability.
  If you assent to help me in this regard, we shall
  then discuss what I will give you in return for your
  assistance. And you will be required to sign a
  Memorandum of Understanding with me upon which you
  shall proceed to the official premises of the
  Security Company to take delivery of the funds for
  further investment.
  Please put into consideration my in capabilities in
  some respect, therefore I would prefer all
  correspondence to be through Email which is more
  secret and confidential, as I can not use my school
 mate fatherís telephone to avoid jeopardizing my
 stay there. Every document concerning these funds is
 with me, upon request it will be sent to you.
 Should you not be willing to collaborate with me in
 this venture, please inform me urgently to enable me
 look for another person.
 Thanks in anticipation to your positive response.
Yours truly,
  AlIMA MAITAMA
