I'm about to become a millionaire

I just received this email.LOL

Quote:
Avenue 12 Rue Reine Abla Poku,
12 Bp 7854 Abj 12,Abidjan,
Ivory Coast.
West Africa.

Hello

It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I intend to establish in your country. Though we have not before, but I believe one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes in life. I am Vincent Mani; I'm from Sierra Leone in West Africa. I contact you for this noble transaction to seek you help and advice since I am too young to handle it alone.

The sum of Eight Million US Dollars was deposited by my father in a Bank in Abidjan capital city of Ivory Coast which he wanted to used for his political ambition, before he was assassinated. Now I have decided to invest this money in your country due to frequent political instability and also for security reasons and the worst part of it is that my uncles are trying to kill me over this money because I refused to hand over the documents covering this money to them. They has sold all my father's landed properties which rightful belong to me and has been on my nerves to hand over the banking document of my father in my possessions which I refused. So because of this I ran away from my country to Abidjan Ivory coast, hiding in a hotel pending when this money will be transferred.

I seek your assistance in the following ways:

(1.) To provide a bank account where this money can be transferred into.
(2.) To make arrangements for me to come to your country after the successful transfer of this money into your account, and further my education.
(3.) To help invest this money in a profitable business since I am not old enough to handle such matters
(4). I want you to promise me that you are not going to betray me after the money gets into your account since that is what I have left.

I will be pleased to offer you reasonable percentage of the total fund while the balance will be invested with your help. NOTE: I have all the necessary documents backing me up as the next of kin, If you are willing to assist me , please do not hesitate to contact me for further details and also hope you will handle this transaction with almost confidentiality and transparency it deserves.

Yours Sincerely
Vincent Mani

I used to go out with someone who actually believed one of those emails and had plans to collect. Didn't understand why because she was pretty smart otherwise too. But I split up with her before I got to see how any of it panned out.

If I work another 20-25 years then I can say I made a million dollars.

Looks like they are outsourcing.
