DEAR SIR,

PERMIT ME TO INFORM YOU OF MY DESIRE OF GOING INTO BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP
WITH YOU. I GOT YOUR NAME AND CONTACT FROM THE NETHERLANDS CHAMBER OF
COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY. I PRAYED OVER IT AND SELECTED YOUR NAME AMONG
OTHER NAMES DUE TO IT’S ESTEEMING NATURE AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS GIVEN
TO ME AS A REPUTABLE AND TRUST WORTHY PERSON I CAN CONFIDE ON AND BY
THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS I MUST NOT HESITATE TO CONFIDE IN YOU FOR THIS
SIMPLE AND SINCERE REQUEST.

I AM DAVID WILLIAMS, A 22YEARS OLD BOY, THE ONLY SON OF LATE CHIEF AND
MRS CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS. MY FATHER WAS A VERY WEALTHY COCOA MERCHANT
BASED IN ABIDJAN, THE ECONOMIC CAPITAL OF IVORY COAST BEFORE HE WAS
POISONED TO DEATH BY HIS BUSINESS ASSOCIATES ON ONE OF THEIR EVENING
OUTING TO DISCUSS ON A BUSINESS DEAL. WHEN MY MOTHER DIED ON THE 21ST
OCTOBER 1990, MY FATHER TOOK ME SO SPECIAL BECAUSE I AM MOTHERLESS.

BEFORE THE DEATH OF MY FATHER ON 24TH APRIL 2003, IN A PRIVATE HOSPITAL
IN ABIDJAN, HE SECRETLY CALLED ME ON HIS BED SIDE AND TOLD ME THAT HE
HAS A SUM OF US$15M (FIFTHEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) LEFT IN A
SECURITY COMPANY HERE IN AMSTERDAM NETHERLANDS. THAT HE USED MY NAME AS
HIS ONLY SON FOR THE NEXT OF KIN IN DEPOSIT OF THE FUND. HE ALSO
EXPLAINED TO ME THAT IT WAS BECAUSE OF THIS WEALTH THAT HE WAS POISONED
BY HIS BUSINESS ASSOCIATES, THAT I SHOULD SEEK FOR A FOREIGN PARTNER IN
A COUNTRY OF MY CHOICE WHERE I WILL TRANSFER THIS MONEY AND USE IT FOR
INVESTMENT PURPOSE.

FOR THIS SIMPLE REASON, I ARRANGED WITH A TRAVEL AGENT, WHO HELPED ME
TO TRAVEL TO AMSTERDAM-NETHERLANDS WHERE THE FUND IS DEPOSITED IN A
SECURITY & FINANCE COMPANY. I AM RIGHT NOW IN AMSTERDAM AS A REFUGEE.
SIR, I AM HONOURABLY SEEKING YOUR ASSISTANCE IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS.

1) TO HELP ME RETRIEVE THIS FUND FROM THE SECURITY & FINANCE COMPANY
AND HELP PROVIDE A BANK ACCOUNT WHERE THIS MONEY WOULD BE TRANSFERED
INTO

2) TO SERVE AS THE GUARDIAN OF THIS FUND AND ME

3) TO MAKE ARRANGEMENT FOR ME TO COME OVER TO YOUR COUNTRY TO FURTHER
MY EDUCATION AND TO SECURE A RESIDENTIAL PERMIT FOR ME IN YOUR COUNTRY.
MOREOVER, SIR, I AM WILLING TO OFFER YOU 15% OF THE TOTAL SUM AS
COMPENSATION FOR YOUR EFFORT/INPUT AFTER THE SUCCESSFUL TRANSFER OF THIS
FUND TO YOUR NOMINATED ACCOUNT OVERSEA.

FURTHERMORE, YOU CAN INDICATE YOUR OPTION TOWARDS ASSISTING ME AS I
BELIEVE THAT THIS TRANSACTION WOULD BE CONCLUDED WITHIN SEVEN (7) DAYS,
YOU SIGNIFY INTEREST TO ASSIST ME. ANTICIPATING HEARING FROM YOU SOON.

THANKS AND GOD BLESS.

CALL ME AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE THIS EMAIL ON + 31 641696814, FOR FURTHER
EXPLANATION AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE FULL DETAILS OF THIS TRANSACTION.

BEST REGARD
