From Miss Elena Bekks
Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire.

Please reply in my private email address

for more details of the project.

Good thing to write you. I have a proposal for you.This however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will.

I am Miss Elena Bekks, the only daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs Bekks. My father was a highly reputable busnness magnet-(a Cocoa Merchant, Diamond and Gold Dealer)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 2nd March 2004.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 4 years old,and since then my father took me so special.

Before his death on 2nd March 2004 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of Seventeen million,seven hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$17.7000) deposited in SECURITY COMPANY in Abidjan Cote d'lvoire .

He further told him that he deposited the consigmnet in my name as the next of kin,and he registered the consigment as family valuables and finally issued a written instruction to his lawyer whom he said is in possession to handle all the necessary legal documents of the consigment which he deposited in SECURITY COMPANY and he instructed the lawyer to hand over the doucments to me whenever I need it.

I am a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do.
Now I want a foreign partner who assist me to retrieve this consigment from the SECURITY COMPANY in Abidjan Cote d'lvoire .

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 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 kindly tell me what the type of a profitable venture this fund will uesd to invest avoid waste of it.
2). Can you honestly help me as your daughter?
3). Can I completely trust you?
4). What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after you have collected this consigment on my behalf?
Please,consider this and get back to me as soon as possible with your telephone number for oral disscussion and keep it highly confidential with yourself.
Thank you so much.
My sincere regards
Miss Elena Bekks

Ivory Coast rocks. You'd love it there, Don. You should open an office.

I can't believe this scam is still going on. How many years has it been by now?

This has been around for years...and it is AMAZING how many people STILL get hooked by this SCAM. Maybe they should get Brian Hunter to help them out, or maybe even Bernie Ebbers.

Actually, one of our top traders attempted to set up in South Africa, but had trouble getting locals to pass the Series 7. Coulda been good.

(Can you believe this scam? Geez).
