From: Miss.Natalie Jones Abidjan -Côte d'Ivoire Dear One, It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I have intend to establish in your country.Though I have not met with you before but I believe, one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes in life.There is this amount of Two Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars ($2.500.000.00) which my late father and mother deposited with a local bank in Abidjan Capital city of Cote d'Ivoire which he wanted to used for his political ambition in our Country before he was assassinated. Now I have decided to invest these money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside Cote d'Ivoire for security and political reasons.I want you to help me claim and receive the funds which will be transferred to your account to enable you plan for the investment in your Country I will like to invest part of the money into these three investment in your Country but, if there is any other business that is better than my suggestion, I will be very glad to follow your advice. 1) Real estate 2) The transport industry 3) Five star hotel If you can be of an assistance to me I will be pleased to offer to you 10% Of the total fund while the balance will be invested by you. Furthermore, before the death of my father he warned me about the increase rate of Internet Scam which have been my fear not to contact you all this while, so that is why I are fearing for the security of the funds. Also he handed over to me the copies of the Bank Deposit Slip and Agreement issued to him by the Bank. NOTE: That this transaction is 100% risk free and absolutely confidential and remember that the change of beneficiary must be changed in your name before the transfer will be done. I await your soonest response. Respectfully yours, Miss.Natalie Jones.
