Good day and how are you today? I hope fine? After going through your profile, permit me to inform you of my desire of asking you to be a guardian or foster parent to me and then help me out in what i am about to tell you.
My name is Moreen Ama (19).I am the only daughter of Late Mr. & Mrs.John A Ama. my father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant here in Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote D'Ivoire.. He was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outings on a business trip. My mother died when i was a baby.
Before the death of my father on Sept. 2007 in a private hospital here in Abidjan, he secretly called me by his bed side and told me that he has the sum of eight million two hundred thousand United State Dollars USD ($8.200,000) deposited in a suspense account in one of the big banks here in Abidjan. He told me that he used my name (Moreen Ama) as the
next of Kin in depositing the money.
He then strongly advised me not to seek for assistance in the investment of the money from his lawyer nor any of his friend here but to seek for a foreign partner from a country of my choice (outside our country, Cote D'Ivoire) that willl assist me in the wise investment of the money. I have since left the money in the bank with the view of my making use of it for investment purposes after my education carrier here.
But as you may be already aware by now, our country (Cote D?voire) is presently at political crises. Rebels have already taken over the whole Northern part of the country and making efforts towards the capture of the commercial center of the country, Abidjan, where i am now.
For this ugly development in this country, i have now decided to take quick actions and have this money transferred out of this country before it is too late to do that. I now want to transfer
it out and use it for investment purpose like real estate management or hotel management. Because of this i am honorably seeking your assistance in the following ways:
(1) To serve as a guardian to me and then assist me transfer the money into your bank account. (2) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and then settle there parmanently.
If you accept to stand as my guardian or foster parent to me, i need not discuss on any percentage with you as you have to see the whole money as yours and then assist me invest it. But if you still want a percentage, I am willing to offer you, 20 % of the total money as compensation for your assistance. Pleas tell me if you feel the percentage i offered is not ok by you.
As soon as I receive your concrete assurance to assist me with my proposal and also your full contact address/phone number, I will then give the bank your contact
information and then tell them to transfer the money into your account as i want to come over to stay with you parmanently. The bank will then contact you and communicate with you on the transfer. You shall then be giving me information on when the transfer will be over. I will also send my pictures to you and shall also need yours too.
No matter what your decision may turn out to be, please i beg you to keep this highly secret for my safety, as i believe that those that killed my Daddy are still after me. Please reply me as quickly as you get this mail.
Thanks for your understanding.
Miss Moreen Ama.
