Dear Friend.
I am Mrs. Barati Parinaz, an iranian-Canada Citizen and widow to the Assistant Director of Iran Mines and Metals who died on 20th April 2006. My husband fell sick and he was flown to Saudi Arabia for treatment but later died and has been buried. I inherited a total sum of US$ 12 Million dollars(Twelve Million Dollars) from my late husband. This money which is concealed in a metallic trunk box is deposited with a finance company in disguise as family treasure.
My main purpose of sending you this mail is because of the way I found you and perhaps trustworthy to give you this priority of shipping the box of money to any address that you think is very secure and safe in your country with your percentage of which we shall chat on soon.
Since the death of my husband, his brothers has been seriously chasing me around with constant threats, trying  to seize my late husband propeties and bank account, which they have successfully collected.  But I never disclose to them the box that was conveyed from here  by a diplomatic mission and deposited with a security company in Abidjan-Cote d'Ivoire
The family of my late husband is not aware of the secret existence of this fund with the security company and they can never be aware of it. As a result of this, I seek your consent to present you as my foreign business partner for the claim of the box of money from the security company for onward lodgement into a safe bank account abroad.
All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Thanks in anticipation for your quick and favourable response.
Best regards,
Mrs. Barati Parinaz.
