Please let this letter not to bring confusion to you. I know that we have not met either before but hear me from the dept of your mind. It is circumstances that made me to send this to you. I will introduce myself first to you, My name is Miss Lillian Umah from Iraq me and my sick Mother presentely now in Africa, My mother is Sick and adimmited in Hospital, she is my hero and my lord Ms Fatue Umah. She was poisioned by her associate in business. She formed a company by one Mr. Philip Brown who poisioned her only to take benefit of the multi million venture. He was arrested immedaitely my mother failed Sick and he entered an agreement with my mother's brothers that I and the immedaite younger brother of my mother will represent my mother's interest in the company.
After six months I was kicked out of the company because I said that we have to change the company's lawyer who I termed was part of the cost of my mother's sick. I did not know that they have changed all the company's document without my name appearing any where. I will have to let you know more detail on that but let me move to the point why I am contacting you. I have been nick named bastard by my mother's relations, They have named me all source of names even calling me outcast because my mother is sick and can not talk even to stand up to walk, while my mother was the bread winner of the family. They have pushed me out of my mother's mansion and still want to eliminate my life.
Seem's my mother cannot talk I got through the records of my mother account books while crying and meditating, which I beleive was inspired by the spirit of God, I discovered that there is a huge sum of money she deposited in a bank, which is $6,400,000.00 The note attached to the deposit agreement she made with the bank indicated that the money was to be used to purchase machinery for the establishment of a new company of her own. Please all I need from you is to do all you can to help me to get this money out of the bank. And confirmed the account most deligently.
I have contacted the bank to claim the money the bank told me that my mother informed them that the money was to be remitted to her company's costumer account abroad, which her costumer will provide to them but since then they have never heard from her nor the costumer. Now my mother is sick. And the bank know that my mother is sick and her condition is bad. I told them that she is ill and appointed me to represent her in her affairs.
(1).I want you to provide an account where the money will be remitted into as my mother's costumer. (2).Make arrangement for me and my mother to leave here as soon as possible (3).How much commission you will take for rendering the assistant? My mother did not marry to any man, She had me as the only child while she was having an affair with the person that surpposed to be my father when she was 18 years and the man abandoned her and disappeared which forced her to remain single. Now I am 17 years and never saw my father for a day.
We have no home now and our life is in danger that is why we ran to Africa where my mother was taking her treatment in hospital to see if she can survive. we don't have any one to run into. All the members of my mother family have turned their back on me and count my mother as a dealth one seem's she cannot talk or to walk because I demand for my right. They told me that I don't belong to the family. That I should go and look for my father, Whom I don't know. I have made trace to know my father with out sucess. I want you to hear me from the inner most of your heart and accord me this help. God will bless you for saving me and my mother's life and future.Best wishes,
Miss Lillian Umah.
