Good day,

Pardon me for not knowing your mindset before sending you this proposal, i intend to establish with 
you a business in your country which is not mandatory nor will in any manner be compelling for 
you to honour against your will.

I am Henry Hamilton ,24years old and the only son of my late parents Mr and Mrs Hamilton . My 
father was a highly reputable busnness man (Gold dust and cocoa merchant) who operated in the 
capital of Ghana during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France 
during one of his business trips abroad on the 12th.April 2008.

Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of 
his who travelled with him at that time.But God knows the truth! My mother also died when I was 
just 4 years old,and since then my father took me so special And before his death on April 12th 
2008, he called his secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the 
sum of (USD$3.5 Million) left it in a fixed suspence account hear in one of the leading banks in 
west Africa. He further told him that he deposited the money in his name,and finally issued a 
written instruction to his lawyer whom he said is in possession of all the necessary and legal
documents concerning the fund to hand the funds over to me in the upon his death.
I am just 24, years old and a highier school college boy, and really don't know what to do. 
Having confided in my father's lawyer of my intention to leave Africa entirely, I am in a 
desperate need of a foreign partner who can help me to transfer this fund out of here to his 
country into his bank account, so that you can start looking for a business which we can invest 
this money on, considering the current unstable economic conditions and crisis in Africa, which I 
fear might not be conducive or enabling enough for me to establish a business. 

Furthermore, I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of the incessant political crisis 
here in Africa, and the death of my father concluded my resolve to leave my country.

Therefore Dear Sir/Madam, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance on this regard, and 
your suggestions and ideas will be highly appreciated.
Now permit me to ask these few questions.

1. Can you honestly help me as your son?
2.can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in 
your account.

Please,Consider all these and get back to me as soon as possible so i give you the full 
informations that will be needed and i want you to know that you are one of the first persons i 
have contacted to request for this assistance.

Kindly forward your response to: {}

Thank you so much and God bless you abundantly.

Yours sincerely,
Henry Hamilton
