Compliment of the day to you and all the members of your family.
I am Miss Binah Massoumah, am from Sudan, but I live in Ivory Coast now in a refugee camp. I am contacting you because I need your urgent help to secure the money that my late father kept in the bank here on my name before his died. This money is (US$7,500.000) and the money is in a bank here in Abidjan.
My father was a very rich cocoa farmer, but he was poisoned to death by his close business partner because of the big contract he won. While he was dying in the hospital, he told me everything and advice me to run out of Sudan, before his partner will get me and killed me too. This is how I ran away from Sudan and come down to Abidjan here, where I am presently in a refugee camp.
I want you to stand as my guardian before the bank and receive the money in your account, at my age i can not be able to handle such matter and i do not want to risk my life, because this place is full of desperate people. I have gone to the bank here with the deposit document and agreement, the bank had with my father and they confirmed it ok.
Please I will like you to reply to this email so that I will give you all the information’s about the bank, so that you can contact them.
And after that you will arrange for me to come over to your country and continue my education.
I am waiting for your kind reply and may God bless you.
Miss Binah Massoumah.
Note: Please permit me to ask you some few questions:
1. Can you help me invest this money into a profitable business in your country?
2. Can you honestly help me as your daughter and keep this trust?
4. What percentage will be good for you after you have help me to transfer this money to your country?
