Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Poor Susan Koromah... She's living on her parents cocoa farm in
Sierra Leone... Her mother died when she was 4. Her father just died
"mysteriously in France". But before his death, her dad left $18.5
million in a box with a "security company". Your mission, Mr. Phelps, if you decide to take it, is to help the poor waif get into the United States to get the box back.
Did we forget to mention that it is all a scam? She'll ask you to buy her ticket, pay a passport fee, whatever "she" can think of to send her money or something she can refund or sell for money.

FROM SUSAN KOROMAH
I NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE.
I sincerely wrote you this mail, because I need your assistance, to help me to achieve what that is rightfully belongs to me. However is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will.
Your profile pushed me to send you this mail because I want a trustworthy person. My name is SUSAN KOROMAH from Sierra Leone. I am 23 years old and the only daughter of late Mr. and Mrs. Michael Koromah. My father was a highly reputable farmer (cocoa merchant) in Sierra Leone before his death.
It is sad to say that he was poisoned and passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on 12th.December 2004.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle 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 he made the trip to France that lead to my misfortune (his death) He called me and explained to me the reason why he will make this trip and also told me that he deposited a trunk box that contain $18.5
million u.s dollars in a security company here in Ivory coast and that this money is for an investment purpose overseas He also told me that the security company do not know the content of the box as money but as a family valuable that belongs to his foreign business partner to avoid the security
company from tampering the box. So I do not want you to make them know the content as money, but as family valuable . He gave me the certificate that was issued to him on the day the box was deposited to the security company and other vital documents of his asset. After his death l went to the security company and establishes ownership of the consignment. Now l need your assistance to move this box to your country to enable me further my education also to invest which had been my late father's aim before his death.
Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help me withdraw the said consignment?
2. What would you like to take as your compensation to assist me in this project?
3. Please can you kindly arrange a letter of invitation to enable me come over to your country after this fund might have been lodged into your account?
Please if you are ready to assist me, just contact me with the above email address. Thanks for your anticipation and co-operation.
SUSAN KOROMAH. (Daughter)
