    Dearest One,
    I am Miss Marina Williams residence in Abidjan Cote d' voire , I m' 23 years of age and I love some hobbies like football, music, reading navels, watching TV and also outing. I'm the only daughter of late Mr. and Mrs. Lambert Williams. My father was the special adviser to the former president of Liberia Mr. Charles Taylor. I and my father came down to reside in Abidjan ( Ivory Coast ) when our president went to exile and my father late die of heart attack.

    Before his sudden death on 20th February 2005 in a private hospital here in Abidjan, he called me on his bedside and told me about the sum of $6.5 million US Dollars he deposited with a Bank here in Abidjan and he used my name as his beloved daughter as the next of kin in depositing the fund. And he advises me that I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will invest the money.

    I humbly seeking for your assistance, to help me transfer it to your country for investment. To serve as the guardian of the money and the investment since I am still a student and to make arrangement for me to come over to reside in your country to further my education as soon as the fund is in your guide.

    Thanks as you made up your mind to help an orphan like me.

    Please, I urge you to make this transaction confidentiality within your heart for security purposes.

    if you are interested do reply me through my private email( ) FOR CONFIDENTIAL OF THIS TRANSACTION

    Yours ,
    Miss Marina Williams

    Marina Williams wrote to me too via hotmail. Nothing from Jone Kone :(
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
