When my father was sick he called me and my mother only and told us that there is a huge fund that he deposited with ECOWAS BANK in LOME REPUBLIC OF TOGO. But there is a comment he made,He said that he will like me to invest with this fund in overseas. Since his death I kept listening if I can hear anything about this money but none.I decided to look for a reliable and honest foreigner who will assist me transfer this money into an existing account with a Bank in any part of the world because presently I am the acting His Royal Highness and I am the chairman of chieftaincy matters in the office of the Governor of my state. I would not like any body to know about this money because it would look as if it is the government fund. The total amount is $14,300,000.[Fourteen Million Three hundred Thousand US Dollar only,Acoording to my late father this money was made by the foreigner oil firms which they paid as royalties. Now what I need from you is to provide an existing account information where this fund will be lodged for safe custody I promise to give you 20% hence you can handle the transfer sucessfully while 10% will be for any expenses which any of us may incurre during the transfer process. And the account information will be stated as follow: Bank Name:.......... Bank Address:....... Bank A/C Number:.... Swift Code:......... Beneficiay Name:.... Privae Telephone number for easy communication. I am assuring you 100% percent risk and trouble free hence the other my brethren are not aware of this. The utmost thing i need again from you is to keep it SECRET untill this fund get to your account. As soon as I receive your reply, we shall discuss further details and the modalities to accomplish this transaction. Waiting to hear from you. Best Regards, Prince Oba Augustine.
