My late father's family took all my father's properties and left me empty handed. They tried to kill me but I escaped. Before my father died, He Deposited US$10.5M to a trust security company in BURKINA FASO. I thank God that, yesterday I received a message from them asking me to come and claim the fund but I don't have bank account to receive the fund. Can you help me to receive it in your bank account ? Can I trust you in this transaction ?
I needed a country where I can invest the money so I can reinstall. Can you assist me to receive the fund from the trust company. Is your country good for Investment ? Can you help me to receive the fund and invest it wisely in your country ? I will compasate you with 30%. As soon as I hear from you through this my email email@example.com , I will forward more details and application form as to fill and send to the trust company for the release of the consignment.
