Dear Friend,
I am writing you this letter with due respect and heart full of tears, i need your help. I got your name and contact from a trust-worthy person who assured me of your integrity and that you will help me to transfer this money,
I am john william timothy, the only Son of late Mr and Mrs izuoma timothy. My father was a very rich and wealthy Gold Trader in Monrovia the Capital of Republic of Liberia in West Africa.
I want to let you know that my father was poisoned by his business associates while my mother died when i was very little and since then, my father took me so special because I am his only son.
Before the death of my father on 20th March. 2007 in a hospital here in Cote d'Ivoire, he told me that he has the sum of $15 million ( Fifteen Million U.S Dollars ) which he deposited in a bank here in Cote D'Ivoire. He made this money from the sales of Cocoa & Gold,
He also told me that it was because of this money he was poisoned by his business partners while on a business trip with them and he instructed me to look for a foreign partner who will help me transfer this money out of republic of Cote D'Ivoire and invest it for me,
my purpose of contacting you is for you to help transfer this money to your country before this people who killed my father will kill me too.
This people who killed my father are after my life and they want to kill me and collect the money from me. That is why I'm now hiding my self here in Republic of Cote D'Ivoire so that they will not see me.
Please, i need your urgent help. Tell me how much percentage you will take in the total money of the Fifteen Million, U.S Dollars to help me in transferring this money to your bank;
but you have to assure me that you will help me fully to transfer the money to your account. l hope you will not betray the trust i have on you because this money is my only hope in this life. And moreover,
you will also help me to come over to your country were i will settle down for my life and invest this money for me. I can assure you there is No regret in helping me because, this money is an inheritance from my late father.
contact me(
I await your reply,
Greetings to you and your Family
