From Elizabeth Zulunga
Republic Cote d'Ivoire
You may no doubt be surprise to receive this mail more especially as we have never had any formal acquaintance in the past, However, I will like to give you some thought to the salient issues raised in this mail.
I am Miss Elizabeth Zulunga, 20yrs old from the war ravaged Sierra-Leone but presently resident in Abidjan, Côte D’ Ivoire with my younger brother Olivier who is 16yrs old. My father, Mr Emos Dangana Zulunga who before his assassination by the rebel troupes was the director general of the Sierra-Leone Mining corporation(SLMC). He was killed in our residence along side my elder brother and our security guard. Fortunately, our mother, James and i were away the country side at the time of the incident..
Before my father’s death, he made a deposit of $18.5million United
States dollars in a security and trust company in Abidjan Côte D’Ivoire, this was proceeds of an over invoiced diamond sales to a foreign company with whose assistance this deposit was made.
As at the time of deposit, the real content of the box containing this money was not made known to the security company as they were declared as family treasure.
Owning to the continuous harassment and intimidation of families of
politicians who served in the government of the former Military president, major Johnny Paul Koromah we decided to flee the country.
Among our father’s personal effects gathered as we were packing from the official resident was a certificate of deposit in his name issue by the security and trust company in Côte D’Ivoire, we have since located this company and established ownership of the consignment.
As a fall out of the events in our country, Sierra-Leone , we did apply for and have beengranted asylum by the government of Côte D’Ivoire sadly, two months after arriving here, our mother died from the what the doctor described as cardiac arrest leaving Olivier and I. Olivier has since dropped out of school as the circumstances of the death of our parents continuous to haunt us.
It is in this light that I write to seek your assistance in order to retrieve the funds from the security company and transfer same to your country, using your account as receiving account while Olivier and I will regularise to finally leave for your country when the funds entered to seek permanent residence.
Part of this money will be used to purchase a home for us while a better part will be invested in profit yielding ventures in your country with your guidance.
Should you decide to assist, an amount equal to 20% of the funds will be paid to you as commission while 5% will be set aside for expenses to be incurred by you and I in this transaction.
Miss Elizabeth and Olivier
