Attn; Dear Sir/Madam Good day to you and your wonderful family? My name is Richard Ammar, am 23 years old, from the Mogadishu capital of Somalia, East Africa and the eldest son and only survival of Chief Winfred Ammar, Al-shabab Militants in Somalia wiped out all my families. Over 70,000 people, including Men, Women and Children were killed in last few months. TheUnited Nations has declared the Mogadishu CRISIS in Somalia one of the worst in the world which has rendered over a Million homeless coupled with the rain flood
that wipe out all our farm land last month which make me to run to Ghana as a refugee at the Bujumbura Refugee Camp here in Accra Ghana West Africa. We arebeen taken care of by the United Nations High Commission for Refugee (UNHCR) and
the Government of Ghana. My father was a Gold and Diamond Merchant before his death. But before thedeath of my father, he deposited the sum of US$16.8 Million us dollars and about 59Kg of Gold dust as Family Treasures at a Security Company here in Ghana during
his trade to Ghana and named me the Next-of-Kin being the eldest son. I amcontacting you because I need you to help me claim, issue me invitation to come
over to your country and invest this fund in your country because before thedeath of my father he left a standing order with the security company that they
should not release the treasure box (consignment) to me on less I produce a foreign trustee because of the political instability in Africa. All I want youto do is to act as my foreign beneficiary at the security company to release the
Fund to us for your help and assistance am ready to offer you 35%, I have also set aside 5% for any expenses that might come up during the cause of this transaction and 60% for the investment to be set up in your country.But you have to keep this transaction confidential because I don't want anybody
to know that my late father deposited such fund in my name. This is for the safety of my life and security of the fund. After you receive the fund in yourcountry you will make plan for me to come over and start a new life and continue
my education under care while you help me invest this fund in a profitable investment. Thanks and remain bless as i wait your response soon. Best wishes, Richard Ammar ---------------------------------------------------------------- Correo Electrónico, Gobierno del Distrito Federal.
