It might sound strange considering the fact that we do not know each
other. I honestly do not wish to obtain a help on condition or to
oblige you to help me for unspecified reason, but if it is the wish of
God that you help me to solve my problem, I will forever remain
grateful to you and God will bless you abundantly. Meanwhile let me
start by wishing you a properous new year in advance.
I am Miss Larissa Kouakou a 24years old and daughter of Late Mr. Daniel
Kouakou. I live in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, West Africa. My father was an
Exporter in the trade of the coffee and cocoa in the economic capital
of the Ivory Coast. He was assassinated by unknown persons (Armed
Rebels) in the family home less than a year now. Since the presidential
election of 28th November 2010, there have been numerous silent
killings of prominent individuals and political party loyalists by
unknown gun men especially killings of 800 villagers in Duekoue by the
Rebel supported by the incumbent government. You must have been aware
of the political situation in my country Ivory Coast since the
Presidential election which resulted to killings of more than 200
prominent politicians and business magnates.
However, I grew alone with my father because my mother died when I was
7years. It is sad that I have lost my Dad because I am left all alone.
I know that I will not mourn them forever, but they remain part of me
in life and death, It is very painful. Before his death, he told me
that he deposited the sum of Nine Million Eight Hundred United States
Dollars (US$9.8Million) in Security Vault Company here in Ivory Coast
and named me the beneficiary/next of kin to the deposit. Now that he is
dead, I have decided to invest the money in your country or anywhere
outside Africa for political reasons and safety.
I seek for your humble understanding and wisdom to help me retrieve the
money from the Security Vault Company and further ship to your country
for purpose of investment. After a successful shipment/transfer of my
inheritance; I shall come over to meet with you for continuation of my
education. I require of you this help with all my heart and wish to
receive your sincere response and would like you to tell me the
possibility to help me out of my present condition with sincerity and
honesty. You will be entitled to 15% of the total amount as
compensation for your assistance in this project after a successful
retrieval and ship/transfer of my inheritance.
I am waiting to hear from you with the positive offer of your
assistance so that I will give you more details. Please consider this
and give me an honest and sincere answer.
God bless you.
