The original message
Good Day, I am Mrs Ayesha Gaddafi the second wife of late Mr Ahmed al-Gaddafi al-Qahsi the commander of Libya's elite Special Forces and the son of Colonel Gaddafi the Libyan leader. I am contacting you to assist me to retrieve the sum of $50,000,000.00 (Fifty Million United States Dollars) being deposited in Cote D`Ivoire known as Ivory Coast by my late husband but as we arrived here due to the political problem during the former regime of President GbaGbo I ordered the security Company to move the consignment to their affiliate Office in Jakarta Indonesia for safe keeping which they did via a Diplomatic Immunity, so I will give you every of their contact in Indonesia for retrieving of the consignment as the fund was deposited on my name. As a matter of fact I and my only son and the entire family of my father in-law were trapped in a bunker here in Tripoli after my late husband was captured at Sirte City on 12th of Oct 2011, I managed to sneak out with my son with the help of a security guard on duty that faithful day and crossed us to the border presently I am hiding in Cote D`Ivoire West Africa without any other means of communication except my laptop. I hope to arrange for my traveling out if possible to your country for an investments of this fund and to safe guard my life because I know that the regime of my father in-law has collapse after his death. Please for your kind assistance I will offer you 25% of the total sum after you have retrieved the consignment, all the legal documentation concerning the deposited fund are with me, I will only write power of attorney making you the new beneficiary of the deposit so that the security company can release the consignment to you. Bear in mind that the funds was deposited with the security firm as household effect, therefore you are going to retrieve the consignment as household effect from the security company because they do not know the real content in the trunk box, is only you and I knows the real content. Once you successfully retrieve this consignment from the security company you will now send to me some money so that we can arrange for our traveling to your country as we will be coming to stay under your kind custody. May Allah grant you the heart to assist me and my son in this our trial period, please never you abandon me with my son just because we are Arabs, but I want to assure you that I am of a clean heart that was brought up under western education but married to a cruel family. Get back to me with your details so that we can proceed without delay because lam here without any help from any one.and finally if you have any question regarding this transaction please contact me. note that the confidentiality of this transaction would be highly appreciated.I await your quick reply soonest. as you respond to my proposal kindly include your contact details such as: 1) Your Full Name:..... 2)Your Direct Telephone:.... 3)Your Home Address:.... 4)Your Country:..... 5)Your Age:..... 6)Your Occupation:.... 7)A Copy of your ID/Passport....
