Dear Sir/madam, I am janet kumba 23yrs old from kenema in sierra leone.Before contacting you,i have seek the advice of few elderly people in my family without letting them know my plan.I was told that even if i send this email to you,you will not beleive because of too much scam and other ways of deceiving people.Please understand that this email is not to let you give me money or your bank details but for you to help me in what i feel belongs to me.Please dont be confused or have doubt about me and dont see me as bad person because I am not. My father by name Bangora was killed by rebels because he refused to give them stocks of Diamonds since they know he deal mainly on Diamond and they know he sells to buyers from Belgium,UK and France.I was aware of his business with this people before he died and since then,i have lost all my fathers property except our home that was not destroyed during the war.I suffered rape and humiliation from the rebels even at my age but my life was spared. I was at home when a letter was brought in and when i opened it to read the letter,it was informing me of what my father deposited in europe for protection and fear of loosing it but still he lost his life.The company sent this letter to the occupant of my fathers house but I received it.After a thorough search in my home,I found some documents relating to the letter I received.I opened the envelope that states consignment record and when i opened it to read,it was saying that Mr Bangora's deposited consignment on 27th march 2000 to be claimed by my partner but i dont know who amongs his business friends is the partner and i dont know where they live in europe either. Please my present situation with my mother is very bad as we cannot eat 3times a day so do all you can to help me stand as the partner to the consignment and God will bless you if you help us to get this money.Please do all you can to get the money but do promise me that you will not disappoint or run away with it when you get it. I dont know what to do after you collect the money but i will want you to advise me on what to do.please send the money to me as my friend so that my family members will not think otherwise.Meanwhile i will send you all the documents that is with me to claim the money and i promise to give you 30%, a huge share of the total money($6.2million dollars) provided my money gets to me to change our present situation. I know God will touch you so that you can help me to also support those raped victims who are still in shock of their life. Yours Faithfully, Kumba Bangora
