ADVISE ME WHAT TO DO NEXT... Dear Friend. 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 contacting you with the following investment proposal for your kind assistance. My name is Princess roes, and I am a female student of University Burkina Faso, Ouaga. I am 30 yrs old. I'd like any person who is caring, loving and home oriented. I will love to have a long-term relationship with you and to know more about you. My father was a king before his death, which the citizens of my community crowned him over ten years before his death. my late father was the king of Bobo Land In BURKINA-FASO, whose lands are being used for Gold exploration and Oil drilling by some Gold companies. I am a princess to him as his daughter 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 handle my fathers business empire. He left the sum of (USD $8.5million USA Dollars) in a financial security bank(A.D.B)African Development Bank here in Burkina Faso. This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from the companies that are into Gold exploration and oil drilling who are operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development and royalties which are due to him as the paramount King of the community in our jurisdiction. I don't know how to take out the fund at the financial security bank were it is deposited on his name unless i involved a foreigner as his business associate and what I will do to invest this money somewhere abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over completely what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my consent because due to his sudden death he did not write down his WILL, moreover the kindred do not have the security depositing documents. This made it difficult for us the members of the family to lay claims on anything that is publicly know by the community apart from this money that is hidden in the financial (A.D.B) bank, since I am a female as stated by our tradition in the town. Now. I urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the financial Security bank where the money was deposited to your country, 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,since i do not want my father name to be exposed by the bankers when transferring out from this country,i needed that you come down in person,i will hand over all documents to you,take you to the magistrate court for an affidavit on your name declaring you as a foreign partner to my father,in this way,you will then take the documents to the financial security bank,open a non residence account on your name and then authorized the bank to be transferring the fund in portions,if not i can not do it as it will expose my family name and since our name is a public one,the will know we are transferring some money and will get problem,so i advise you to help me in this expect and get a way forward for this foutne. I am ready to pay % of the total amount to you if you help us in this transaction and another % interest of Annual Income to you, for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over it. If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund, Please, note that this transaction is 100% risk free and I hope to commence the transaction as quickly as possible, I will send you my details and address on how to fly down here as soon as I hear from you for recognition,my problem now is that all my father bank accounts has been closed expect this fund now and if this will be exposed,we will loose everything and will start from zero,whatever expenses you spend on arriving here,i will pay back as soon as you do the change of ownership of deposit and it is released in the financial bank.
