> Dear Prospective Partner,
> However strange or surprising this contact might seem to you, I ask that
you give due consideration to its importance, as we both stand to benefit
immensely. Though we have not met or know each other, this is a criteria I
have used to select you, as I wish to cut off all ties with my people for
security and safety reasons.
> At this point I wish to introduce myself properly to you. My name is
Benson Cisse Traore, I am a personal aide to the Late General Robert Guei of
blessed memory, former President of Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast).
> You may not be conversant with the present situation in my country, which
has gradually degenerated into a civil war. For the sake of what I envisage
we achieve together, I wish to give you a general overview.
> My country in reality has ever since independence from France had an
undefined and fragile polity. Founding president, Felix Houphouet-Boigny
ruled us with individual blend of paternalism from independence in 1960
until his death in December 1993. He bowed to pressure for multi-party
politics in 1990. In 1993, National Assembly president Henri Konan Bedie won
a brief power struggle with Prime Minister Alassane Ouattara to succeed
Houphouet-Boigny. The following month, the former single Ruling Democratic
Party set up by Houphouet-Boigny, then headed by Bedie won an overwhelming
majority in the National assembly.
> On December 24, 1999, my mentor Gen. Robert Guei ousted Bedie in a coup de
tat. Although this was highly criticized, but it was the right thing to do.
In July 2000, Gen. Guei approved a new constitution in referendum with tough
eligibility conditions for presidential candidates. In spite of criticism,
he registered as a candidate. The Supreme Court intervened, and he was
cleared. This was not totally acceptable to the other candidates from the
ruling Democratic Party (PDCI-RDA), the country's largest. The only opponent
was Socialist candidate Laurent Gbagbo. Admittedly, Gbagbo won the election
of October 22, 2000, but his political immaturity, led to Gen. Guei being
reluctant to relinquish power. There were allegations of election rigging
etc. Ouattara who was previously barred by the referendum to contest
election, was excluded from the December 10 parliamentary election because
of doubts about his nationality and his supporters announced they would
boycott the election. Gba

demonstrations due to propaganda that Gen. Guei tried to rig the election.
Under pressure from international donors, Gbagbo agreed to hold a
reconciliation forum to draw a line under the political strife that followed
the 1999 coup, but key players including Outtara failed to show up for the

coup de tat against Gbagbo, in a bid to restore political stability.
Unfortunately, he was killed. After Gen. Guei's death, there was turmoil in
our camp; this has led to us losing half our strength. Although we still
control the north and Central regions of the country. It is now a question
of who will give in between us (now referred to as "rebels") and Gbagbo's
government. There seem to be no chance for peace, as several attempts has
been botched by Gbagbo. Our Armory is seriously depleting, and we do not
have the financial resources to strengthen it to prosecute the war. I have
now decided to abandon the war. The US and France has since evacuated their
citizens from our country. Destruction is imminent, as ECOWAS (Economy
Community of West African States) has been called in to mediate. Their only
way of doing this is to bring in ECOMOG (A monitoring group). We witnessed
the horror they caused tryin

I have lost faith and hope in the struggle.
> To the point, the essence of my contact with you is to seek your most
needed assistance to siphon US$18,500,000 left in the bunker of Gen.Guei's
Palace. Only Gen. Guei and me knew about this fund. Now that Gen. Guei is
dead, I intend to use this money for my personal benefit (as well as yours
if you accept to be my partner). I see justification in diverting the money,
rather using it to support the purchase of weapons for destruction of
innocent lives and properties.
> I secretly fled my Country, and this money was moved in cash to my present
location in Europe through diplomatic means, and I have since deposited the
trunk containing the funds with a private security company. If you accept to
offer me your assistance, I will require that you assist me in claiming the
box as a gift from me to you from the security company. Be informed that I
am confiding in you by disclosing this to you, as it is only me (apparently
you now) that have knowledge of this. When the box is claimed, we shall then
have the money deposited into an Offshore account in your name, as I am
being discrete of using my name for now. Then you shall have your own share
withdrawn to an account of your choice, and leaving the rest as fixed
deposit, for release to me at the appropriate time.
> The importance of prosecuting this within the next few days cannot be
overlooked; hence your immediate response will be highly appreciated.
> On hearing from you, I shall disclose my location to you, and discuss the
share of the money you will be entitled to for offering me your most needed

respond, so that I may move ahead.
