Hello, I am Hazan Abubakar the only child of Mr. Ahmed Abubakar a licensed solid mineral (gold, diamond, etc) exporter before he passed away. Before his death my father, apparently, married a woman who became my stepmother because my mother died when i was very young. My stepmother already had two daughters of about my age, and they came with her to live in my Father's house. I discovered that there was some ill-feeling from my stepmother towards me, since then i have been badly treated; being forced to undertake work befitting only a servant, in my father's own house. When my father died instead of being in the state of mourns as custom demand, she went as much as desired and claimed my father's property as well into the future regarded as a possible danger to my live. My father before passing away informed me privately that he had an account valued five million six hundred thousand USD ( $ 5.6 Million USD ) which he intend to transfer into his foreign associate's account for investment abroad on my behalf, this money he acquired from the export contract he secured and executed under the umbrella of the government. Truly i don't know you but considering my situation and security, couple with an uncontrollable crisis between the rebels and government, my live is no more protected here. I confided on your assistance and write with every respect due to your good person and ask that you assist me to get the money transfer to your bank account on my behalf as my late father's foreign associate to your country for investment. So please i want to know you better. I am willing to offer you 20% of the total money for your assistance after the successful transfer of this money for investment; I have plans to do investment in your country, like real estate, industrial production or any other lucrative investment you bring to my notice in your country. Please if you are willing to assist me, indicate your interest by sending your phone number & address so that I can communicate with you at any time. I will be waiting for your response. Thanks Hazan Abubakar.
