This is a classic “rich orphan scam” of African origin. “Jolle Atta” has inherited a fortune, and she needs an honest guardian (just like you) to help manage her money. Who wouldn’t want to help an orphan?

In reality, “Jolle Atta” is a scammer, perhaps working out of the Ivory Coast or maybe France (see the return email address). If you make the mistake of offering to help, you’ll discover that she needs you to send her some money for “bank fees” or “bribes” to get the money out of her account, and then once she has your money in her hands, like all other advance fee fraudsters, she will disappear and you’ll never hear from her again.
