Dear respected one,
My name is Mrs Mariam Z. Mustapha, the wife of Michael Covo Mustapha who was a Minister under the leadership of president AHMED TEJAN KABBAH of Sierra Leone.
I got your address through the internet and hope strongly that you will help me and my son in this issue.During the political crises in my country, my husband was arrested and killed. Before his death, he handed over to me a certificate of deposit which contains the sum of US$ 7.3 Million dollars (seven point three million USD)which he deposited in the security company here in Abidjan . As the political atmostphere of Sierra Leone was very dangerous, I fled with the documents to Ivory Coast(Cote D'Ivoire). where the money was deposited .
This money is of no criminal origin as it was largely realise from black market sale of alluvialgold dust . Sir, I want to move this money out of Ivory Coast and invest it in a profitable venture abroad. Infact, I am not feeling safe here in Ivory Coast because the political situation is not stable and I don't want to loose this money. Please could you assist me to transfer this money to any suitable country abroad and invest it in profitable venture in your country or any other suitable country where you have good and trusted friends.
I would like the money to be managed in a profitable manner preferably a joint venture business with your company if possible. For your assistance , i have concluded with my son that you will get 15% of the total amount of US$ 7.3 Million , I will give you further details of the plans. Your assistance is highly needed.
Best regards,
Mrs Mariam Z.Mustapha and podo(son)+22507086401
