Hello Dear, I am writing you this mail only to seek for your assistance in good faith. After reading my mail i will want you to bear with my request and be of good assistance to me, because bad people in this world has made us not to trust the good once again. Before anything i will want you to put all your trust in God, with his holy and merciful name all things are possible. Well, i am Ms. Salima Dede 23 years old girl, the only daughter of My Late Father Dr. Raymond Dede, for your information, I am now in a refugee camp here in Abidjan-Cote D’Ivoire, for the transferring of our Money to your country. Be informed that my father and mother died 5 mouths ago in a car accident, when they where coming back from Church. Before my Late Father died, he called me personally that he made a deposit of (US$2,800,000.) TWO MILLION EIGHT HUNDRED UNITED STATE DOLLARS. In a BANK here in Abidjan-Cote D’Ivoire. In addition, all i needed is a God fearing person that will assist me to transfer the money to his account, because i am too small to receive the money myself, and the law of this country does not allow anybody in refugee camp to open an account. So that is why i needed your assistance as i am the next of kin to the money. And after you receive the money in your country all i will need from you is stated below : 1) A LETTER OF INVITATION THAT WILL ENABLE ME TO OBTAIN MY VISA TO YOUR COUNTRY. 2) FOR YOU TO ASSIST ME TO FURTHER MY EDUCATION IN YOUR COUNTRY. 3) TO ASSIST ME AND INVEST THE MONEY IN A GOOD BUSINESS IN YOUR COUNTRY 4) WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE TOTAL MONEY WILL BE OK FOR YOU ?. As soon as i read from you, i will give you all the vital documents that covers the Money in the Bank, and write a letter of authauthorisation on your behalf that will authorise you as my partner to make claims of the Money on my behalf. And if you are willing to assist me try and write me through this email : email@example.com for further details. Thanks and God bless. Yours. Ms. Salima Dede.
