With profound respect and humble submission, I beg to state the following few lines for your kind consideration, I hope you will spare some of your valuable minutes to read the following appeal with sympathetic mind. I must confess that it is with great hopes, joy and enthusiasm that I write you this mail which I know and believe by faith that it must surely find you in good condition of health. My name is Jean Martins, I am the only daughter of my late parents Mr. and Mrs. D. Martins. My father was a highly reputable business magnet who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days.
It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on the 12th September 2004. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of mine who traveled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 6yrs old, and since then my father took me so special.
Before the death of my father on September 2004, he called me and informed me that he has the sum of Five Million, Seven Hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$5,700,000.00) he deposited in a private Bank here in Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire.. He told me that he deposited the money in my name, and also gave me all the necessary but legal documents regarding to this deposit with the Bank
I am just 23 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do. Now I want an honest and GOD fearing partner overseas who I can transfer this money with his assistance and after the transaction I will come and reside permanently in your country till such a time that it will be convenient for me to return back home if I so desire. 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 father actually brought sorrow to my life. I also want to invest the fund under your care because I am ignorant of business world.
I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions:
1. Can you honestly help me from your heart?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the fund has being transferred to your account and i come over to meet you ?
Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Immediately I confirm your willingness, I will send to you my Picture and also inform you more details involved in this matter. Kind Regards, please reply through my private email above for security reasons,
Miss Jean Martins.

I am very interested in the story of your father. I remember the fall of 2004 like it was just a few years ago. The very idea of suffering such an irrevocable loss at the hands of a diabolical uncle, no less, sounds truly sardonic.
I once sailed the great seas of the Ivory Coast with my late grandfather, Captain John Hook. This was before he died tragically in a nefarious plot thrust upon him by an overgrown child and a sporadically coy alligator.
Before grandpappy was carried off, he told me about a great treasure buried some twenty thousand leagues under the sea. The booty is worth five billion, six hundred and twenty three thousand pounds and 72 rubbles. ($5,000,623,000. 17).
I went to the British coal/sea mining board with my completely legal claims to the treasure and proposal for its recovery. But alas, I am no sailor, and I lack the necessary equipment to retrieve the amber gold.
As a fellow God fearing citizen I implore you to help me recover my grandpappy's treasure. All I need is:
1. A large submarine.
2. Several shovels.
3. 200,000 dollars in non-consecutive bills deposited to my overseas account.
Please get back to me as soon as possible regarding this most important of matters.
