Dear Friend,

I am widow and a mother of Two all girls and a Citizen of Mauritius a UK
citizen holder, married to a Ghanian. My late husband was a loving, caring and
hard working man a gold merchant who died in car accident. Before the sudden
death of my beloved husband, and father of my two daughters, he intended to
establish a business in the United States of America with the sum of
$17,220,000  million United States dollars, but unfortunately he died before
this proposed venture. Following his death, his family members insisted that I
am not entitled to his property (Assets and money) since I am a woman and my
offspring's are all girls, as I do not have a male child for my husband. Well,
according to some barbaric traditional laws here in Ghana (West Africa), which
doesn't permit a woman to inherit a man's property, as they are expected by
tradition to take over the management of his properties including myself who
automatically becomes a wife to one of his immediate brothers. Unfortunately to
these wicked family members, the $17,220,000 million United States dollars that
my late husband intended to use in establishing a business in the United States
was deposited in a bank in the United Kingdom,whice i can not expose to you now
until i get to know you more. Though this is unknown to his family. I and my
late husband's Attorney is the only one aware of this money, so I have
discussed this matter with a staff of the company that I want this money
personally so that I will be able to take care of my children's educational
needs since my husband's family members vehemently opposed the furtherance of
their education. So I need you to help me take custody of this fund for safe-
keeping pending my arrival to your country because i am civil servant and i am
not entitle to handle such money here in Africa,so i want you to help me to
stand as the next of kin to my late husband hardearn money pending my arrival
to your country.

As soon as I get your positive response, I shall provide you with all the
necessary detail of this fund. However, I have decided to give you 15% of the
total money as a reward for your sincere assistance and the remaining 85% of
the money will be for my investment and up keeps for my two children. Any
expenses that you and I may incure during the process of this transaction will
also be reconciled afterwards. Let me have your confidential telephone, fax and
mobile numbers for easier communication. Please  I await your response.


Mrs.Rebecca Foster.
