Dearest One, Please permit me to inform you of my desire of going into Family relationship with you as I am an orphan. My name is Polina 20 years of age, nationality(Liberia)and the only Doughter of late Mr.and Mrs. David Paul my father was a very wealthy Cocoa business man and a politician before he was killed by our former head of state President (Charles Ghankay Taylor who is in Jail today). I also lost my mother when I was 4 years as my Dad told me but before the death of my Dad accure, He gave me his deposit certificate sum of $12.500.000)Million dollars in a Security Company in Abidan the capital of Cote D'Ivoire for safe keeping for investment abroad.I am seeking your assistance in retrieving this funds for an investment in your country and also for me to continue my education in your country, I accept to offer you 15% out of the total money for your input effort to stand as my late Father foreign partner to help me retrieve the funds and to help me continue my education in your country. Your reply and assurance will give me more hope to survive in life because I am not comfortable in the Refugee Camp here and I have suffered a lot of set back since after I lost my Dad.

All I want is a sample pack of your daddy's Cocoa, one of those nice cellophaned gift baskets would be lovely. Please let me know when to pick you up at the airport- I will arrive in a cute little green car that will also be yours. Love, your new mom

I think there has been a mistake here.
She is sharing the money with me and wants to be a part of MY family.
I think she inadvertently sent this email to you.
But, you can come and visit us when we return to Florida and you can meet her and we will be sure we give you a token gift of 25% of the 15%.
And of course we will be flying in Carolyn to be part of the happy occasion.

Oh, well, uh, this is difficult, isn't it. Because she wants to be my girl too. I do think I should get her, since I am old and single and would love a helping hand in my life. You could both come to Minnesota and visit as often as you'd like, but I wouldn't care to split money with either of you. Sorry.

Let me know what you plan to do.

Jo in MN (not Stella)

Hey, this is a really happy coincidence, because I have a new daughter coming from Nigeria. Let's get together soon and have a hugfest, right after we go to the bank. xx B.
