Good day, I am Sheriffo Hydara the son of the late Captain SADIBOU SHERIFFO HYDARA from Gambia. My mother is AJA Hassanatou Saneng and I have a kid brother Momodou Lamin Hydara. My father was a Millitary officer in my country Gambia and he rose to the rank of a captain. He was also known to be a stalwart giant of the 22nd July (1994) revolution in the Gambia for all Gambians. He unfortunately was involved in a failed coup and was jailed for an alleged treason on Friday 27th January 1995. Following his arrest and detention, I flew the country in company of my mother and my younger brother to a destination which I might not be able to disclose to you at this point but will definately do so as we proceed. My father latter died while in detention. Recently, my mother disclosed to me that my father left some treasury in cash for our inheritance in the United Arab Emirate (DUBAI) but because of the circumstances through which we left the country, we were unable to travel out with the documents related to this deposit. The funds amounting to the sum of Twenty two million six hundred thousand EURO (Â22,600,000.00) is currently under the custody of a financial institute which identity I will disclose to you in due curse. Meanwhile my mother still have the contact of the lawyer that controls my father's international assets in her email box including his contact phone number and hence the lawyer is fully aware of the existence of the funds in question. I will like you to send to me your personal information as follows :- Full Names : Contact Address : Phone number : Fax : As soon as I receive these informations, I will forward to you the contact information of the lawyer and he will instruct you on how the funds can be transfered into your personal bank account for our investment purpose.
