Dearest one, Please you should not be offended as you recieved this mail but believe me as my spirit welcome you to assist me in this transaction. My name is Miss. Amina Hassan, I am 20 years old and the only daugther to late Alhaji Adama Hassan a well known cocoa dealer here in Abidjan Cote D'ivoire who was assasinated by unknown gun men whom I personaly believed was sent by his business associates due to his wealth and personality. Before the death of my beloved father, he called me as the only daugther and sat me down by his side at the hospital bed and tell me that, he deposited the sum of US$ 17,500.00 (Seventeen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars ) with a reputable bank here in Abidjan Cote D'ivoire which he wanted to use for the purchase of cocoa during next season. He said now I am the only one left in the family as my mother died on a fatal mottor accident one year ago. He directed me where he kept the documents issued to him by the bank on the day he deposited the money and advised me to look for a foreign business partner who will assist me with honesty in transferring of the money into his/her account as he do not want me to invest the money here in Cote D'ivoire for the security of my life and the money. He also said that he deposited the money as belonging to his foreign business partner though, he did not mention any name or address to avoid any one not to touch the money. Please, I am requsting you to assist me in getting the deposited money transfer to your account for a profitable investment there in your country or anywhere else you feel that the money will be secure to enable me acomplish the advise of my father. Regarding to investment ideas, with my age, I don't know the exact investment we will undertake there in your country with the money but I strongly believed that your idea of investment as a citzen will be granted as you assist me with all your heart in this transaction. May God bless you as you assist me in this transaction with honesty. Yours truelly, Amina Hassan.
