HI DEAR,

GREETINGS FROM BENIN REPUBLIC, I KNOW THIS MAIL WILL SURPRISE YOU
SINCE I DO NOT KNOW YOU OR MEET WITH YOU BEFORE BUT I'M OF THE BELIEVE
THAT YOU WILL BE TOUCHED TO ASSIST ME OUT OF THIS SITUATION AFTER
READING THROUGH MY PROPOSAL.

I AM MASTER ERIC KONE, THE ONLY CHILD OF LATE MR. BAMBA J. KONE, MY
FATHER WAS A VERY WEALTHY COCOA MERCHANT BASED IN COTONOU, THE
ECONOMIC CAPITAL OF BENIN REPUBLIC BEFORE HE WAS POISONED TO DEATH BY
HIS BUSINESS ASSOCIATES ON ONE OF THEIR OUTING TO DISCUSS ON A
BUSINESS TRIP. BEFORE THE DEATH OF MY FATHER ON A PRIVATE HOSPITAL
HERE IN COTONOU, HE SECRETLY CALLED ME ON HIS BEDSIDE AND TOLD ME THAT
HE HAS A SUM OF US$6.5 MILLION (SIX MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND
UNITED STATES DOLLARS) LEFT IN A FIXED DEPOSIT IN A LOCAL SECURITY
FIRM, 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.
IT IS BASED ON THIS THAT I CONTACTED YOU AND I AM HONORABLY SEEKING
FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS.

(1)TO HELP ME RETRIEVE THE MONEY FROM THE SECURITY FIRM AND PROVIDE A
BANK ACCOUNT WHERE THE MONEY WILL BE TRANSFERRED INTO.

(2)TO SERVE AS THE GUARDIAN OF THIS FUND AND TO MAKE ARRANGEMENT FOR
ME TO COME OVER TO YOUR COUNTRY AFTER THE MONEY HAS BEEN TRANSFERRED.
FURTHERMORE, YOU CAN INDICATE YOUR OPTION TOWARDS ASSISTING ME AS I
BELIEVE THAT THIS TRANSACTION WOULD BE CONCLUDED VERY SOON.
PLEASE CONTACT ME ON MY PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS:( erickno14e@gmail.com )

I SHALL WAIT TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON.
THANKS AND GOD BLESS!!!

KIND REGARDS,
ERIC KONE
