URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL
My Dear Good Friend,
This is with pleasure, honour and respect that I am bringing this business proposal to you and with hope it will be for a mutual benefit to both of us. And hoping that you will not let down the trust I am about to repose on you.
I am Anita Edward, the only dauther of late Mr Harrison Edward, a full time and known contractor within west Africa, some time on the 10th of July 2004, he and my senior brother took a trip to Europe and America for a business negotiation and investments but as events can be, unfortunately they are among more than 200 persons aboard Sudan Airways "Boeing 737" that crashed on 12th Aug 2004 on its way from New York to Cairo.
That's how we lost my beloved once to death, but the most heart breaking is after about six months, my beloved and caring mother died of hypertension in a hospital here in Abidjan. My dear late mother knowing as if she's going to die discloses to me all the plans of my late father's journey with my senior brother to America, at this point, she told me that my late father deposited 18.5 Million USD in a bank here in Abidjan Côte d’Ivoire.
Continuing her advice, she warned that I 20 years and my junior Brother 17 years must make sure we still look for a good foreign partner who will assist us well in seeing that we transfer and invest this money abroad as that has been my late father's aim before his death. To that, I am writing to you for your honourable and kind assistance plus your full consideration to see that this our only lively hope is transferred into your account and country for investment.
Now, once you assure me of your interest to help me as I requested, then you should give me the go ahead order to start the arrangements for the transferring out of the money to the account you might be nominated abroad. For that, your full assurance is highly needed not to drop me on a half way.
For your interest to assist me transfer this our money to your account and country for investment, I will like to give you 20 % of the whole money and strongly promise to map out another 5 % for all sundry expenses you might incure during the transaction is over.
Among all, the most important thing is for you to be aiding us as parent who will be directing all our affairs and doings in your country. Lastly, you will promise me that you will not betray or deny us if this our money gets into your hands, bank and country.
After I make sure that the money has got to you, I and my junior Brother will now visit you and your country for investment and living, it's here I will also like you to do some business researches and inform us both the conditions or a foreigner to invest in your country.
Waiting for your urgent reply
Thanks for your full anticipated co-operation.
Miss Anita Edward.
