Hello My Dear How are you doing today, I hope you are doing fine. I hope and I know that this email that I am sending to you would be reaching you in good health? I want to tell you something very important, though I dont really know you well but I have this feeling in me that you would be of good help. And I think I can trust you in this too, this is why I am telling you this. All I want you to do is to keep this as a top secret between us. and also promise me that no other person will hear this. Right now am really going through hard and terrible life with my mother. Actually it happened when i lost my dad, my dad is dead and i am left with my mum. so after the death of my father, his family members came to the house and collected everything my dad left behind for us. and they ask me and my mum to leave the compound and they sold the house. We could not able to find them again because of the war that happened in my country Liberia, so just last week my mum show to me some documents which my dad use to deposit $19Million US dollars in a bank here in Ghana and also a picture of my dad at the time of sign the agreement letter with the bank and he use my name as the next of kin to the funds. So when my mum show to me the documents, i was so happy so i travelled to Ghana with my mum. When we got to the bank and we presented all the legal documents that was given to my father at the time of depositing the fund with the bank, we were told that the money is still with the bank, but they cannot transfer the money to us here in Africa, because my dad went into an agreement with them at the time of depositing the fund that the fund should be transferred on express transfer to leave Africa. I never knew my dad was planning of opening a company abroad. so on our way out of the bank, one of the staff of the bank advised us to look for a trust worthy foreign partner to help us receive the funds from the bank. So i want you to help us contact the bank, so that the bank can transfer the money of my late father to you, so that i and my mum can come over to your country and meet you so we all can start a better and happy life again. Please, i want you to understand that I want to trust you and I know you can help me and my family because we are passing through hard moments here in Ghana, I am a beautiful girl and so when people see me they don't know the condition that i am undergoing due the reason that I don't want people to know the stress and pains we are passing here in Ghana, and then we meet and live life to the fullest, and i feel we can be together if it is meant to be, that is why am telling you this top secret because am scared and this is all we have left in this world. I believe you can understand my present situation. I trust you that is why I am telling you this. as am writing you this mail, my eyes is full of tears because my mum is seriously sick and we don't know any body here in Ghana. so we are living with an old lady called Mrs. Vida Anayor, she is working as a security officer close to us, but she is very old and she will stop work very soon, so try your best and help me and my mum. We really need your help. Life is so hard and terrible for me and my mum right now in Ghana because we don't have any helper. i think I've truly been blessed by finding you and I 'll never let you go away from my life. I will want you to understand that we are going to sign an agreement before the bank will transfer the fund of my late father to you because we have not met before now and the Agreement is for the security reason of the funds too. so i will like you to provide this information so that i and my mum can get the Agreement done from a lawyer here in Ghana, and send you a copy of it to sign. So please reply me with your, Full name, Age, Occupation and address. My mum promised to give to you 20% percent if you can help us get the money from the bank. I will be sending you a picture of my mum, my late father at the time of depositing the fund with the bank here in Ghana and a picture of my late father casket during burial ceremony, and I will also send you a picture of myself when i receive a reply from you. Please try and get back to me as soon as possible so that i can send to you the legal documents that was given to my father at the time of depositing the fund with the bank. Please take care of your self, I hope to hear from you soon. God bless you. Yours Obediently,
