Well, I am IYKON SANKOH, son to FODAY SANKOH

Few days before the arrest of my father, he confided
in me and ordered me to go to his underground safe and
move out immediately, with a Deposit Agreement and
Cash Receipt he made with a security Company in
Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire where he deposited One Iron Box
containing USD$ 35million dollars cash (THIRTY FIVE

decided to use this money for future investment of the
Thereafter, I rushed down to Abidjan with these two
documents and confirmed the deposit of the box by my
father. Also, I have been granted political stay as a
Refugee by the Government of Côte d’Ivoire.
Meanwhile, my father have instructed me to look for a
trusted foreigner who can assist me to move out this
money from Côte d’Ivoire immediately for investment.

transfer this fund into your Account, but I will

this fund will be transferred to in your country or
another neaarby country where taxation will not take
great toll on the money ?

travelling papers after this transfer to enable me
come over to meet you in your country for the

expertise in your country where part of this fund will
be invested ?
Please, all these requirements are urgently needed as
it will enable me to establish a stronger business

general overseer of the investment thereafter. I am a
