MY DEAR, With due respect and humility I write you this proposal which I believe would be of great interest to you. I am Mrs Hellen Kamara, a Sierra Leone National and the wife of Late Dr LAMINE Kamara of the blessed memory. Prior to my husband assassination by the rebel forces loyal to FODAY SANKOH , he was the Director General National Gold Diamond Mining Corporation of Sierra Leone. Two days before my husband was assassinated, he instructed me and my two sons TONY and FRANK to move out of Sierra Leone immediately. Before the powerful Economic Community of West African States (ECOMOG) forces intervened which eventually resulted into a brutal civil war. I and my children managed to escape to Abidjan, the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire through the help of my husband's friend who is a trawler. We came into Abidjan with some valuables including a cash sum of U$ 18 Million (EIGTHEEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY) in two trunk boxes which I deposited with a private security company here in Abidjan - Cote d'Ivoire in my son's name (TONY Kamara). For your information, we did not disclose the real content of the boxes to the security company and we do not wish them to know this under any circumstances. Rather, we deposited the boxes as containing family valuables. Meanwhile, I want to leave Cote d'Ivoire entirely with this money for investment in your country because of the stable political situation and mostly for the future of my children. Right now I am seeking for a foreign partner who will assist me retrieve and serve as the guardian of this fund with whom I can plan the best way to move out this fund for investment purposes which is my motive for contacting you.

That you will pay a short working visit (2 days) to meet with me and my family face to face here in Abidjan- Cote d'Ivoire to enable us establish a personal contact with you to ensure some amount of confidence between us That you will help me pay $2,250.00 USD to the security company, as delivery charge and have the boxes in your position.. We have it in mind to reward you handsomely for your assistance. We are prepared to give you 30 % of the total sum, and 35% share in the total investment to be made.
