Good Day.
With the hope that you are okay and doing fine, this message could be strange but is real if you pay some attention to it.

My name is  Mr.John kwame Ivory coast national. I inherited the sum of $9,000,000.00 USD (Nine Million us dollar) from my late parents.But l am faced with a problem.on the banks documents for the next of kin, my late father appended a clause stating that:I the next of kin, must attain the age of 35 years, before taking full control of the bank account; But, in the event of war and natural disasters in Ivory Coast, the bank should honour a transfer request from me which must be for the safety of the funds; And in this case, I must have an investment manager outside Africa, and the money should not be transferred to any African country.
I am not yet 35 years, but Ivory Coast is not a safe country at this time because of the war.We have since relocated to Ghana a neighbouring country.I want the bank to transfer my money out of Ivory Coast, but the bank is insisting that l fulfill the conditions put down by my late father.  Since I have established ownership of the fund, the bank has transfered the fund to Ghana upon my request and insistence, but still refused to released the money to me.This is actually the main reason why l am looking for an investment manager.  I would like you to be my investment manager.  When you become my investment manager, l would instruct the bank to transfer my money to the country of my investment manager, so that you would be able to help me invest the money wisely.
If you would be my investment manager or you receive the deposit on my behalf and help me to providing a reliable genuine trade or company in your country where I can invest this fund immediately to save for the future of my family. please write me as soon as possible. percentage is negotiable upon your reply.Please be mindful that the fund is of no criminal origin. The transfer and investment is necessitated due to war and natural disasters in Ivory Coast, Please let me know by returned phone number/fax if we could be of some help in financing this project.

My regards,
Mr.John kwame
