My Dearest �,
Thank you for your message of concern
and willingness. Reading from you urgently has given me joy and
restore happiness to my soul once again. As I have told you in my
previous message about my predicament, I have all the covering
documents concerning the money and I want you to know that it only
take one day for unknown to known.
My late father is a wealthy
international businessman, he deal on Gold, Cocoa and Timber export,
Am the only daughter of my parents, I lost my mother when i was 6
years, my father is all i have until he was poisoned by his brothers
associated with my father's business partner due to his wealth, after
the burial of my late father, life became hell to me because his
brothers (my Uncles) claimed all my father's wealth and belongings as
the tradition demands, according to the traditional of the land, if a
man died without a son, even if the man have ten daughters all his
wealth and belongings will be shared among his brothers and
relatives, i believe this is the main reason while my father
deposited the money without the knowledge of his brothers and made me
the next of kin to the fund, My uncles planned to kill me thinking
that i am going to revenge, that is why i ran out from the family
house so that i can secure my life till the bank release and transfer
the fund out from here then i will leave this country to join you.
At the moment the money is in a bank
here in Cote d' Ivoire which am the next of kin and I have no access
to put or withdraw any money from it according to the agreement my
late father made with the bank during the deposit which stated that i
must be 27 of age before i can have a direct access to the fund, all
I will require from you is to assist me stand as the present guardian
and foreign associate of my late father so that the bank can release
and transfer the money to your nominated bank account for investment
purpose. Before we proceed, I have to make an official introduction
to the bank and inform them officially about you as my present
foreign guardian who is to receive my inheritance money oversea for
investment purpose while i further my education.
Here are my personal details,
My full Name: Ms. Sofia Johnson.
Address: Rue 12 Avenue 55, Trecheville,
Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire.
Profession: Student (I stopped school
after my father death)
Country: Cote D'Ivoire.
I also attached my photograph so that
you may know whom you are dealing.
I would need your full Name, Address,
Occupation and direct telephone number so that I can forward an
official transfer application to the bank and I will be giving you
more details as soon as I hear back from you. Note that I will give
you 15% of the total money as compensation for your efforts; I will
come to your country and continue my education. While you will manage
the investment will involve on.
I am looking forward to hear from you
urgently, Once again thanks so much for the immediately response
toward the proposal I sent to you. Please help me to keep this
transaction more confidential and top secret between you and me.
Thanks and remain bless.
Yours in need,
Ms .Sofia Johnson

Attention: Mr �,
The Bank Acknowledged The Visit Of Your
Local Partner (Miss. Sofia Johnson) With Your Information's There-In
As Requested By The Bank, The Bank Has Also Taken Note Of It All And
Have Filled It, The Bank Also Has Gone Through The Banking Or Deposit
Record Of The Deposited Fund Made By (Mr. Philip Johnson) And
Unfortunately From The Record Of The Deposited Fund, Transfer Will
Not Be Effected On The Deposited Fund Just Like That Or The Access To
The Account Of The Fund Given To Any Person Or Business And
Transaction Conducted On It Without A Proper Legal Clearance And
Legal Revoke Of the Contract The Original Depositor (Mr. Philip
Johnson) Had With The Bank In-Respect And At The Instance Of The
Deposit Referred To As "The Deposit Contract Bond".
On This Ground, The Bank Will Request
You And Your Partner (Miss. Sofia Johnson) Or Both Procure A Probate
Letter Of Administration /Authorization Dully Signed, Stamped And
Sealed And Delivered To The Bank Formally From And By Probate
Department Of Ministry Of Justice Here In Cote D' Ivoire Respectively
And Issued In Your Favour Or Jointly With Your Partner, Which I Have
Explained To your Local Partner Here (Miss. Sofia Johnson) This
Morning In Our Bank But I Have Not Hear From Her As I Told Her To Get
The Probate Letter.
These Probate Letter Of Administration
/ Authorisation Will Auttomatically Revoke "The Deposit Contract
Bond" And Also Administer the Asset (Deposited Fund) To The
Beneficiary, (In This Case You ) And Also Empower The Bank To Effect
Transfer On The Deposited Fund Into The Beneficiary's Designated
Account And Give Access Of Deposited Fund Account To You (The
Beneficiary) Or The Next of Kin Or Jointly As Instructed.
The Bank Requested You Or Both To
Procure This Legal Document Because Of The Fact That, The Original
Depositor Of The Fund (Mr. Philip Johnson) Had A Contract With The
Bank In-Respect Of The Deposit And Before The Deposit Was Made Called
"Deposit Contract Bond.
There Are Certain Terms And Claused Of
This Bond That Restricted The Bank From Transferring The Fund Or
Given Access Of The Fund Account To Any Person Or Conduct Any
Business On The Account Of The Fund Without The Presence Of The
Depositor Or Outstanding Written Instruction From The Depositor.
The Depositor On His Own Did Not Also
Write An Instruction To The Bank Or "WILL" in-Respect Of
The Deposited Fund Before His Death And These Makes It Difficult For
The Bank To Break The Contract Bond And The Only Body That Have Power
To Break This Deposit Contract Bond Is The Probate Department Of
Ministry Of Justice here in Cote D'Ivoire Through This Legal
Instrument Called Probate Letter Of Administration / Authorization
Hence You Were Asked To Procure It.
You Therefore Consult Either Your Legal
Adviser Here In Cote D'Ivire Or Any Trusted Recorgnised Legal
Practioner Here On The Issue So That He Will Apply For It Formally
Since It Is Less Time Consuming And Less Cost For a Recognised Legal
Practicing Lawyer Here In Cote D' Ivoire To Procure And Almost The
Only Body The Ministry Of Justice Will Give Proper Attention In
Respect Of It.

This Official Line! (00225) 4702 1176 After Going Through This Mail

that this probate letter of administration will auttomatically revoke
the deposit contract bond my late Father made with their Bank but he
advised that the only place to get the document is in the ministry of
justices and that I will use a lawyer not myself,
I went to the Ministry of Justice and
they Directed me to Probate department and there, they told me to
look for a lwayer who will make it easy for me and them I searched

Probate Tax and after he has goting the probate document or after it
is send to the Bank and the Bank confirm it and the money transfer or
the Bank open the account, that we will pay him the balance of his
service and consultation charges.
He said that the Probate Tax which will
be paid to the Account Unit of the Probate department after
application is written by him, He called the Bank director on his
mobile line to find out more information from him and the amount he
said I will pay as Probate Tax is 2,150 united state dollars while
his charges which he said we will pay after is 2,500 united state
This was after the Pastor who is also
his Pastor pleaded to him with me and I even cried in his office, now
the Pastor told me that he can help me with some money which I give
back to him after everything but that he said he can give me is 800
united state dollar's, I also can get from arround me upto 700 united
state dollar's, and the balance of 650 united state dollar's will
still be the problem.
I don't know how you can help me on
this now because I am weak and it is not my intention to ask you for
anything but since it is like this and the only person I will still
inform is you, If it will be possible, it will not be free and you
