is my pleasure to write you after much consideration since telephone
communication can not be suitable enough to communicate to you at
first.time Iam Miss Rashida Banabas the only daughter of my
father, late Mr. ALPHONSIUS BANABAS from Cote d'Ivoire in West
Africa I am 23years of age.
My father was a limited
liability of Cocoa and Gold merchant in Abidjan capital city of Cote
d'Ivoire before his untimely death. After his business trip to Belguim
and Italy to negotiate a cocoa and gold business he wanted
to invest ,A week after he came back from Belguim and Italy, he was
attacked with my mother by unknown assassins. My mother died instantly
but my father died after five days in a private hospital on that
faithful afternoon. I didn't know that my father was going to leave me
after I had lost my mother.
But before he gave up the
ghost, it was as if he knew he was going to die. My father (MAY HIS
SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE) disclosed to me that he deposited the
sum of $ 10,000,000,00 US Dollars (TEN MILLION DOLLARS) in a
security and company here in Abidjan-Cote d'Ivoire.
the money was meant for his cocoa and Gold company he wanted to
establish in Belguim and Italy though according to my father he
deposited the money in trunk box but declared it as vital family
belongings. He handed me the key of the box and the deposit certificate
and instructed me to seek for a reliable and trust worthy business
partner for my lifetime who will help me to investment the money abroad.
I have succeeded in locating the security company here in Abidjan
- Cote d'ivoire and also confirmed the items with most honest and
confidentiality. Now I am soliciting for your assistance to help me
lift this money out from Abidjan to your safe account abroad so that we
should invest it in any meaningful lucrative business in your country
because this is my only hope in life. Awaiting anxiously to hear
from you so that we can discuss the modalities of this transaction.
Please kindly contact me through the above email address immediately
for more discussion.
Thanks for your kind attention.
Miss Rashida Banabas
