Business Magnet

These are all so common I hardly post them any more, but I really liked it that this guy’s dad was a “business magnet.”

From: Sihem Aldouri
Ivory Coast West Africa

Dearest One,
Based on your profile I’m happy to request for your assistance and also to go
into business partnership with you, I believe that you will not betrayed my
trust which I’m going to relay on you.

I am Sihem Aldouri 19 years old and the only daughter of my late parents
Mr. and Mrs David Kouame.My father was a highly reputable business magnet-(a
cocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is
sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in one of his business trips abroad
in Europe year 12th.Febuary 2005.Though his sudden death was linked or rather
suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at
that time.

But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 8 years old, and
since then my father took me so special before his death on February 12th 2005
he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he
has the sum of Ten Million five hundreds thousand United State
Dollars.(USD$10.500.00) left in a security company in a metallic trunk box, but
the security company didn’t know the contents because it was registered as
family valuables items for security reasons.

I am just 19 years old and a university undergraduate and really don’t know
what to do. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of
incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast. The death of my late father has
actually brought sorrow to my life.

Sir/Madam, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this
regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. For you to assist
me in this transaction I will offer you 15 percent of the total sum. please if
you have any question to ask me about this transaction do not delay to contact
me on my above email address. I await your urgent response as soon as possible.

Thanks and best regards.

Yours Truely.

Sihem Aldouri.

  6. No Kidding, Disturbed! And all you have to send is the processing fee??

    Bashar – For you, habeebi, you can have it all.

    Blue Ice Envy – Good morning, BIE! In Kuwait, I have never gotten a single piece of mail through the Kuwait postal system. Not my bank statement, not a reminder that my driver’s license is due, nothing. Not even a single piece of junk mail.
