I am Mr. Johnson Njongo and my sister is Miss Ollian Njongo, we are the children of late Chief Bernard Tefeya from Limbe- Abidjan, Cote'Ivore west Africa. I am writing you in absolute confidence primarily to seek your assistance to transfer our cash of Twenty Million Dollars (US$20,000.000.00) Twenty Million United States Dollar cash bond concealed and secured in Two treasure trunk boxes which is now safely secured in the vault of a Security brokerage Firm here in Netherlands. The money is declared as family valuables by my late father as a matter of fact the company does not know the content as money, although my father made them to understand that the boxes belongs to his foreign partner. Source of the money: My late father Chief Bernard Njongo, a native of Limbe District in the Northern Province of Cote'Ivore, was the General Manager of Cote'Ivore Mining co-operation (C.I.M.C.) Abidjan. According to my father, this money was the income accrued from Mining Cooperationís over draft and minor sales from coca. Before the peak of the civil war between the rebelís forces and the combined forces of ECOMOG peacekeeping operation that almost destroyed my country, following an uncessful attempt to removal from power of the civilian elected President Mr. Gbagbo by the rebels. My late father had already made arrangement for us, my mother, my little sister and myself to be evacuated to Seirra Leone with the CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT he made with the security firm in Netherlands. Due to the war in Sierra Leone that time, my sister and i were evacuated to Amsterdam the Netherlands after the death of my mother through the aid of U.N evacuation team where we are currently seeking political asylum. During the war in my country, and following the indiscriminate looting of Public and Government properties by the rebel forces, the Cote'Ivore mining coop. was one of the targets looted and destroyed. My father including other top Government functionaries were attacked and killed by the rebels in November 2005 because of his relationship with the civilian Government of Mr. L. Gbagbo. As a result of my father's death and with the news of my uncle's involvement in the air crash in July it dashed our hope of survival. The untimely deaths caused my mother's heart failure and other related complications of which she later died in the hospital after we must have spent a lot of money on her early last year.
