LETTER OF ASSISTANCE ROYAL GUEST HOUSE 22 B.P 943 ABIDJAN 22 ABIDJAN – COTE D’IVOIRE TEL/FAX: (225) 07-92-53-81
ATTN: THE PRESIDENT / CEO John Macleod
I am Mrs Theresa COLEMAN, a Sierra Leonean, the wife of Late DR. JOHNSON COLEMAN of blessed memory. My late husband was the chairman of Sierra Leonean National Diamond & Gold Corporation. My husband was killed along with my three children in our Freetown residence while I was out. They were assassinated by rebels led by Major John Paul Koromah on 18/06/98. Because my family never supported the way Major John Paul Koromah and his splinter group overthrew our legitimate President, Tijan Kabba and forced him to exile.
After the assassination of my husband and three children, when the African Peace Keeping Forces (ECOMOG) soldiers were in control of my village MENDE, I left my hide-out in my village. When I was searching for some information in our family villa, I found the key to my late husband’s underground strong room, I discovered one metallic box containing twenty eight million US Dollars (US $28,000,000.00)
Meanwhile, I made an arrangement with a fisherman that operates a fishing trawler boat who smuggled me along with the box that contained the money through West African coast waters to Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, where I deposited the box as family valuable and artifects in a security company.
Now, I have decided to look for a trustworthy and reliable foreign partner who will assist me by using his bank connections to transfer this money for investment in his country. I suggest offering you (20%) of the total money if you will assist me to have this transaction done.
(1) To help me used your bank connections (Company or personal) to transfer this money for investment in your country. (2) Provide a lucrative business where this money will be wisely invested. (3) To help me to secure a permanent residence permit as I would love to spend the rest of my life doing business overseas.
It is advisable that you will come to Abidjan to meet me in person to enable us know one another and thereafter, sign a written agreement that will improve the basis of mutual trust. Every other information needed will be given to you on request.
Note that your urgent assistance is needed to facilitate this transaction. For confidential purpose, you should handle this transaction with utmost secrecy. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. For more information contact my only survival son Mr Benson COLEMAN on the above Tel/Fax number. Thanks for your prompt co-operation.
