Dearest one Good thing to write you. I have a proposal for you-this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will. Your profile pushed me to send you this mail, I am Sister aida,20years old and the only daughter of my late parentsMr.and Mrs. richard hassan Brown.My father was a highly reputable busnness magnet-(acocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad year 6th.April 2005.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time.But God knows the truth!My mother died when I was just 4 years old,and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on April 6 2005 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him
that he has the sum of Ten million,seven hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$10.700,000) left in one prime bank here in dakar senegal West Africa. He further told me that he deposited the money in my name,I am just 20 years old and auniversity undergraduate and really don't know what to do.This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. Dear,I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards.Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions:- 1. Can you honestly help me as your Sister? 2. Can I completely trust you? 3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your account? Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible.Through my private email box: firstname.lastname@example.org .Thank you so much. My sincere regards, Sister aida,
