My Dear Respectful Sir/Madam,
Good day and Compliments,
I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly and you would never regret this.
I am a female student from University of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou. I am 23 years old. I'd like any person who can be caring, loving and home oriented. I will love to have a long-term relationship with you and to know more about you. I would like to build up a solid foundation with you in time coming if you can be able to help me in this transaction. Well, my father died earlier two months ago and left I and my junior brother behind. He was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death.
I was a princess to him and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth now because my junior brother is still young and my mother is not literate enough to know my entire father's wealth. He left the sum of USD$4.5 dollars (Four Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars)in a financial security company .This money was annually paid into my late father's account from Shell petroleum development company(spdc)and chevron oil company operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction.
I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money some where in abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town.
Now, I urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the financial security company to your bank account that is why I felt happy when I saw your contact because I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me invest this money wisely. I am ready to pay 30% of the total amount to you if you help us in this transaction and another 10% interest of Annual After Income to you, for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over.
If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund, kindly reach me, please, note that this transaction is 100% legal and risk free and I hope to commence the transaction as quick as possible.
Princess Bea (ms).
