Hello Dear,

I am Prince Prince Oba Augustine, the son of Late [H.R.H] 
My late father Okoro, left with two wives,He died three years ago,All 
his children are 8 in numbers five males and two females but I am one 
only with my mother the other woman has the rest seven.

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 

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.
