Subject: Greeting to you
Greeting to you in advance. How are you, your
business and family? I hope all is well. Please I want to use this opportunity
to introduce myself to you and tell you what I am looking for if you don't
I am Miss Florence Benson daughter of the late ENGR. FERICOH
BENSON of Free town, Sierra Leone with my brother. I am a young girl from the
family of two because my beloved mother died on the day my younger brother was
delivered and my father refused to re-marry immediately because he is the only
child of his parents and don't want anybody that will maltreat us due to the
love he has for us. My late father Engr. Fericoh Benson was the Managing
Director (MD) of BETAX PLC a Gold and Diamond Mining corporation company.
During the time of his service he was a very devoted and God fearing person;
this cause his fellow staff to hate him because he always refuse to
collaborate with them in doing evil.
So one sunny Tuesday evening when
I was coming back with my dad from shopping in his own private car we ran into
bandits who were totally armed they trace us till we reach home, there they
attack us, my father pleaded with them to take everything he has and spare his
life, they took everything and also shot him three times on his chest they
also shot me but to the glory of God I survived the gun shots but my father
died in cold blood. How I was admitted in the hospital I don't know but I
found myself on the hospital bed after two weeks of the incident when I
This happened eight months ago, as I am trying to
gather my deserted life and that of my brother in place. Our father has being
buried that was four months ago, the present problem we are facing is that my
father's uncle that is the brothers of my grand father has took everything
that my father has both money, landed properties and all his durable asset
ejected me and my bother leaveing only the sum of US$12,5M which my father
deposited in a bank which they don't know about. They treated us badly also
accusing us for the calamity that befall our family, now we are left alone in
But why I contacted you is because we want to start a new
life outside our country and also when I went to the bank where my father
deposited the money in Cote d'Ivoire which is located in west side of Africa
they told me that my father deposited that money on behalf of his partner, so
that the money should be claimed by my father or his partner, but for the fact
that my father is nolonger alive that the partner should come for
So as things is now I don't want to go and get any of my kinsmen as
that will also give them the access to claim the money as I can see that it is
now the only thing we have to start life again. If I have found favour in your
eye I will like you stand as my father's partner as I don't have anybody so
that they can transfer the money to you. While we will prepare to come over to
your country and meet you there to start a new life again.

us please let me know as I am waiting to hear from you soon.
