Dear Friend,
How are you doing i hope this email is reaching you in good health? My name is Nana Selemon from Sierra Leone I found your contact from a website when l was searching for a reliable foreign partner.
This is a secret that l want to tell you. i never wanted to reveal this to you, but i think i need to tell you this now, because I am sure you are a trust worthy and honest person,  this is why i am telling you this.For sometime now l have been going through difficulties in life.

Actually it all started when l lost my father , He was poisoned by one of his business associate after a dispute over a big contract that was awarded to my father in Sierra Lone l am presently left with my mum alone. After the death of my father, his family member came to the house and made away with all my father had left behind for us, after which they instructed me and my mother to pack out of my father's house, after which they sold the house. We could not find them again because of the war that happened in my country.
Two weeks back my mother who currently  suffering from serious  liver cancer showed me some document's which my father used in depositing
$12Million US dollars in a bank Ghana  with  my name as the next of kin to the funds. l was filled with joy when my mother showed me those
documents, so I had to  traveled  to Ghana to confirm.I  got to the bank and we presented all the  document that was given to my father at
the time he deposited the fund with the bank, we were told that the money is still with the bank, but they can not release the fund to me because my father stated that the money was in transit to his foreign partner overseas.
We were advised by the bank to get a foreign partner who is trust worthy to help us receive the fund from the bank. So i want you to be our foreign partner, and help us contact the bank, so that the bank can transfer the money of my late father to your account, and myself and my mum have agreed to give you 25% of the total fund, then i and my mum can come over to your country and meet you so we all can start a better and happy life again.
Please, i want you to understand that i trusted you, and i feel you can help me and my mother. This  is why am telling you this top secret.As am writing you this mail, my eyes are filled with tears because my mum health is  fast deteriorating.  Please try your best and help me and my mum. l will send evidence of deposit issued to my late father as soon as I hear from you  Please send me your  phone number  to enable me talk to you
Nana Selemon.
