Hello and greeting to you.<*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

I am a student from Burkina Faso University Teachings Hospitals (BUTH) <*xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />
My father died earlier eight months ago and left I and my junior brother behind. He was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death. I was a princess to him and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth as a princess to him according to our African tradition now because my junior brother is still young and my mother is not educated enough to know all my father's wealth. Now this is why i contacted you,
My late father left behind the sum of $980.000.00US dollars.(nine hundred and eighty thousand United State Dollars) in a security company. This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from the Gold mining and the Cotton processing companies operating in our community for the compensation of using our land. I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town.
Now, I urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the security company to your bank account, That is why I felt happy when I saw your contact because I strongly believe that by his special grace you will help me and my family invest this money wisely in your country. I am ready to pay 20% of the total amount to you if you help us in this transaction and another 10% interest of annual income to you for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over. If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this money to your country, and take note that these no risk involved in this transaction and I assured your security and for that reason i would like you to visit my country so that you will see things yourself, I believe you are sincere and highly respected considering the truth that I sourced your email from the peoples search data web during my search for a foreign partner whom can assist us in taking this business to its success. I look forward to hearing from you.
