Hello Dear,
Thanks for your response,I am so glad to read your short profile today,hope are you hope fine,after going through your profile I found it convicing to relate to you some issues concerning my personal life.I know that my message will come to you as a surprise since I don’t  know you in person or met with you before, but I am of the believe that  you would be obliged to come to my assistance after hearing about my situation.
I was, until recently, a Social student of the University of Abidjan,  Cote D'Ivoire West Africa.
I am the only Son of late Mr Thomas Kobo. My father was a very  wealthy cocoa merchant based in Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote D'Ivoire. He was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business last year.
When my mother died on the October 1989, my father took me so special  because I am motherless. Before the death of my father last year, in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has a sum of  US$ 9,500,000 left in account in a bank here in Abidjan, that he used my name for the next of kin in deposit of the fund. He also explained to me that it is because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates.
1)I am honourably seeking your assistance to provide a bank account to the bank, where this money will be transferred to.
2)You will serve as the guardian of this funds since I am a Boy of 19 years.
3)You will make arrangement for me to come over to your country after the money has been transferred to you.
I have plans to do investment in your country, like real estate and industrial production since I am into studies of socialogy. This is my reason for writing to you. Please if  you are willing to assist me please indicate your interest.
I am willing to offer you 15% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/input after this successful transfer of this fund to your nominated account overseas.
Finally if you have any question as regards this transaction contact me so  that I will send you documents of this fund. Note that the confidentiality of this transaction would be highly appreciated in replying soonest.
Thanks and best regards.
God Bless You
John Kobo




I thank you for your kind mind and your urgent response.I love your photos, I know it is hard to understand my present conditions and circumstances, Since my late father enemies borned our house here I live in a church refugee guest house here in Abidjan.I am assuring you,this is money inherited from my late father it has no risk, Yes I have relatives my late father's brothers but they want to kill me inorder to inherit this whole money while they see me surffer,they set fire on our house and I have to run to the refugge camp of our church to stay,I do not want to see them again for the rest of my life.I do not have money now to process for my coming but I believe when the money is been transfered to you,you will send to me some money from the money been transfered,for me to process for my coming.
I thank God for my life. It has not been easy since I lost my late father. It has been life like a prisoner. But I thank the Lord that he keeps me living. What I really need now is just faithful person to stand for me as my foreign guardian to receive this money from the bank where my late father deposited it.
Everything I told you about this money is real, genuine, risk free and legal; I have suffered a lot since my father died. I don’t have any body to look after me, but I have some hopeless ones who want to kill me too and have the money to enrich them. That is why I don't want to have the money invested here or to leave here any more.
I contacted you to please do this following thing for me, to help and make sure that this money will be smoothly transferred into your bank account, you will also help to source for a nice investment where you will invest and manage the money for me.
You will make arrangement for me to come over to your country to have a better life and for me to continue my studies. Presently I have no money with me because I cannot withdraw the money in the bank due to the fact that the money is in a fixed deposit with the Bank
.As my late father states therein that it will be transfer and be use out side the country because he is avoiding problem from his enemies and still yet they got him killed and the rest of my family and this is the reason why I don’t wish to stay here anymore.
I am presently hiding in a church guest house were people cannot not trace easily and my feeding is just by charity help and that not my pressing problem now. I need this money to transfer to your account, so that I can be able to have a new life altogether and to continue my education as well.
I assuring you that any help you render to me will be much appreciated. I have been in great difficulties and my only hope is this money with the Bank in their fixed deposit and that is why I needed someone that the lord will touch his/her mind to help me transfer this money and get me out from Here.
I will be sending you the documents which my late father used in depositing the money in the bank from our church pastor who is taking care of me in the church refugee camp I am staying and I will let him have your email contact so that he can write to you as well.
So with the documents you will contact the bank where this money is deposited and inform them that you want them to transfer the money into your account as my foreign guardian.
You have to keep this between you and me for the sake of my dear life and for the security of the money till the money is finally transferred to your account and you bring me up to your country.
Please promise me that you are not going to change your mind if this money is transferred to you, because this is the highest risk I am taken in my life.
Please call me immediately you receive this email, so that we will discuss fine, that will also give me more confidence in you, but I will be very glad if you can come down here in Cote d Ivoire, to see things your self, because seeing is believing and also afford us the opportunity to see each other physically.
I am waiting for your urgent call +22501467804 Please keep this transaction between you and me. I don't want any other person to know about it because of my life and for the security of this money.

This will give full legal back up to the transfer and also ensure that it conforms to the laws of this country and your country.
The three documents are:
a) An affidavit of fund ownership.
b) An affidavit of Truth and claim.
c) A federal high court mandamus order to the bank to
affect your transfer.
These documents will be procured for you by an attorney resident here in Cote D’Ivoire . However to save you cost of engaging a private attorney here, I have instructed the director of our legal services to assist you in procuring the documents. You will however pay for the procurement of the documents which amounts to USA $850 (Eight Hundred and Fifty USA only.)
This implies that as soon as we receive the money above sum of  USA $850 our attached attorney will be able to obtain the documents and subsequently affect your fund transfer to your account.
