Advance Fee Fraud: Madam Rose Pallasigui

A fairly ordinary 419, this, so not much commentary. It was received from ( -- and note that the ".ci" country code is Cote d'Ivoire, which is not Nigeria, but it's close to it) on Fri, 20 May 2005 13:40:08 -0000.

My Dear,
My name is Madam Rose Pallasigui. A citizen
of Gambia, widow to the late former minister
of finance in Philippine who died on 15th of May 2004.
My husband fell sick and he was flown to France for
treatment but later died of ulcer and he has been
I inherited a total sum of 11 million dollars from my
late husband, this money which is concealed in a
metallic trunk box is deposited with a security and
finance company here in Philippine. Due to the
instruction I laid down before I deposited the box,
that I needed maximum security/safety of my
consignment and no body nor government organization
can trace the where about of the box until I am ready
and prepare to claim it. for this reason the security
company used their diplomatic means to send the box
out of Philippines to Abidjan- Cote d'Ivoire where
they have their underground secrete vault. This
deposit was coded under a secret arrangement as a
family treasure. This means that the security company
does not know the content of this trunk box that was
sent from the Philippine to Abidjan- Cote d'Ivoire
under a diplomatic coverage for safe keeping.
My main purpose of sending you this mail is because of
the way I found you and perhaps trustworthy to give
you this priority of shipping the box of
money to any address that you think is very secure and
save in your country with your percentage of which we
shall chat on soon.
In fact, since the death of my husband, his brothers
has been seriously chasing me around with constant
treats, trying to suppress me so that they might have
the documents of his landed properties and confiscate
them. They have successfully collected all his
properties, yet they never stopped there, they told me
to surrender all bank account of my late husband,
which I did, but I never disclose to them this deposit
with the security company in Abidjan- Côte d’Ivoire,
because this is where my future and destiny lies upon.
The family of my late husband never aware of the
secret existence of this deposit which I made with the
security company and they can never be aware of it.
Out of fear of my late husbands family, and when the
situation becomes uncontrollable because of pressure
on me from the Government of the Philippines, I decide
to look for a trustworthy person who could assist me
retrieve this box of money from the security company
for onward lodgement into his account for the purpose
of future investment. Consider my situation as a widow
and come to my rescue.
There is need for urgent action because I'm paying
$50 dollars per day as a demurrage to the security
company for safe keeping this consignment.. I will
send you
the Authorization Certificate to call them in my next
mail which is the Certificate of deposit that they
gave me on the very day when the box of money was
deposited under their company.
I give thanks immensely for your co-operation as I
look forward to hear from you soon.
All the best,
Madam Rose Pallasigui.
