MISS SARAH GUEI-IVORY-COAST
I know that this letter will come to you as a surprise considering the fact
that we have not met before.I am looking for someone that will assist me with a
business that has to do with my family estate which my late father left behind
for us.i am contacting you based on the fact that i want somone that is not
known to my family to assist me in this business and this is for security
reasons which i will explain to you as we make progress.
I am a Sarah Guei the daughter of late Mr Samuel Guei, a cocao merchant in
Republic Of Ivory-coast .I am presently on political asylum in Holland. I got
your contact over the internet during my search for a person that will assist
me in this business.this became neccessary as i do not want anybody known to me
or my family to be associated with what is at stake.I want you to note that
this business will benefit both of us and that it is 100% risk free.
However, you must confirm your ability to handle this because it involves a
large amount of money. The fund $7m (SEVEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) is my
share of my late father estate. I boxed and shipped the money with a security
and finance company declaring it as personal valuable items (artifact) at the
peak of the a political uprising that rocking my country,all i want you to do
for me is for you to represent me as the beneficiary and the receiver of this
consignment oversea.If you accept to assist me clear this consignment out of
the custody of this company your percentage is 25% of the total money and i
have also mapped out 5% for any expenses that you may incure in the process of
clearing out this fund the rest will be for me.
Now that the crisis has not yet end , I need a trustworthy person to proceed to
the place of the security company in order to clear the fund and afterwards,i
will come to your country for us to start a joint business venture as i do not
have the intention of bringing the fund back to Africa for a very long
time.Note that I will send to you the relevant documents that will enable you
take possession of the fund for onward investment for our mutual benefit.
All I need from you is as follows:
1. Your confirmation of your ability to handle this business for me.
2.Your word that you will keep this business as confidential as possible at all
times until we conclude this business.
3. Your telephone and fax numbers for communication.
As soon as I get the above information from you, I will disclose to you the
name and the country of the security company,as well as your name and
particulars to the security company as my representative and my partner to
enable them contact you accordingly. As we make progress.
Note that this is a very safe transaction as this fund is my share of my father
