FROM : Master Kone Ibrahim
With regard to your reputation and co-worshipper of
God who will not disappoint me nor deny me in faith, I
am directing this letter of assistance to you. I am
Master Kone Ibrahim the son of Mr Bamba Ibrahim from
Republic of Zimbabwe really in dear need to get
somebody who will safe guard the interest of me and my
treasure. Briefly, my father Mr Bamba Ibrahim was a
Gold and Cocoa merchant who based in Abidjan Côte
d’Ivoire and had a branch office in Accra Ghana.
My father was a wealthy Gold/Cocoa merchant who has
business in many countries in Europe, America and
Asian countries. According to my father, my own mother
died when I was about six years of age which means
that I did not even know my mother very well.
The story is that my father Mr Bamba was poisoned to
death by his business associates about some months
ago, and he died in a private hospital here in
Abidjan. But when he was about to die, he called me
beside his sick bed and told me that he deposited the
sum of Ten Million seven hundred thousand United State
Dollars (USD10.7M) in a confidence account as bond in
a bank here in Abidjan Côte d’Ivoire, this money was
kept for me his only son. Right now I am here in
Abidjan, the commercial city of Cote d’Ivoire in West
My problem now is that since my father has been
poisoned to death by his business associates, I don’t
even trust any other person here again and to this
effect, I do contact you. Right now, I want you to
help me in the following ways:
1) I want you to help me extract this money from the
bank here and then provide a bank account where this
amount here (USD10.7M) can be transferred.
2) You are going to be the manager of this fund and
also my personal guardian until I finished my studies
as I’m just 24 years old.
3) You are going to procure admission for me to
continue my studies in one of the known university in
4) That you must prepare immediately to make a working
visit to Abidjan here so that me and you can see each
other and we can then do the transfer of the fund to
your account at the same time and I will go back with
you to your country for the fund investment.
5) You are going to receive 20% of the total sum for
your assitance to me.
I appreciate if you consider my condition and help me,
and I am willing to proceed with you as soon as I have
your response. Please try to contact me through my
THIS BUSINESS IS HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL BECAUSE NONE OF
MY LATE FATHER’S BROTHERS AND SISTERS KNOWS ABOUT THIS
Waiting for your immediate response.
Thanks for your understanding
Master Kone Ibrahim
