Dear Respectiful One,
Good day to you,
Please i need your help,
hope this mail meets you in good health and spirit. I am jecolia
collins, Am from Cote D'ivoire Abidjan, am the only remaining child of
late parents, Mr.and Mrs jerry collins My father was killed with other
Government officials during official hours when the rebel troops
stormed and raided the mining corporation office at the heat of the
crises in Sierra Leone. A few weeks later, the rebels also invaded our
residential building in which my mother and two of my junior sisters
including two of our security guards were killed in the compound while
I was out for a special research programme.
I had a
singular shock and trauma, which compelled me to flee from the country
to Ivory Coast with the help of an army colonel who was a close friend
of my late father. My educational career was jeopardized as a result of
the sudden death of my parents.
I am contacting you now
because of the present difficulty I am facing.Unfortunately, my fathers
two accounts in West Africa have recently been frozen. However, this
did not affect the six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars (USD$ 6,500,000.000), which he deposited in a bank in Abidjan
Ivory Coast. For now I am having every information and document needed
for the clearance of the money in the bank here in Abidjan and I want
you to act as the beneficiary of the fund for easy and smooth transfer
of the fund to your bank account abroad.
to give you 15% of the total amount for your assistance as soon as this
transfer is concluded. You will invite me to your country where you can
introduce me into a very profitable business in which I can invest part
of the money. I am making this request to you with tears in my eyes and
I feel that God Almighty will touch you with His spirit to listen to my
cry for help and answer me without delay since my breadwinner is no
more and this is my only hope in life. Your positive response will give
me the greatest joy and relief .
Anticipating to hear from you soon
May God be with you and your family.
Miss jecolia collins
