Good day, I Am PRINCE KABUD writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you aboundantly and you would never regret this. I am a student from University of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. I am 29 yrs old. I am like any person who can be caring, loving and home oriented despite the fact that I am from royal family. I will love to have a long- term relationship and build up a solid foundation with you in time coming if you can be able to help me in this transaction honestly. Well, my father died earlier one year ago and left I and my younger sister behind. He was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death. I was a PRINCE to him and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth now because my sister is still young and my mother died ten years ago during the birth of my younger sister Samira who is 20 years now. My father left the sum of USD,11 000 000 dollars (ELEVEN MILLION US DOLLARS,) in a security company, when my late father was about to die he called me and told me that he have a box money with code in the security company and no body know about it or what is inside the box. This money was annually paid into my late father's box from Indiginuos Gold Mining Company (IGMC) operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction. I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so that my family brothers will not take over what belong to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my consent because I am only one son my father has, of which if they find out they will plan and kill me and my sister, why because I'm the only as man in my father family. Now,I urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the security company to your country, that is why I felt happy when I saw your contact because I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me invest this money wisely. I am ready to pay 20% of the total amount to you if you help us to invest this project and I have maped out 2% for any expenses that maybe incurred during the transfer process and another 10% interest of Annual Income to you for handling this investment project for us which you will strongly have absolute control over to your country.
