Good Day ,
It is my pleasure to write you after consideration, since I can not be able to see you face to face at first, but one has to risk trust at time. I am Charles Remmy the only son of late Mr. & Mrs. Richard Remmy, from Benin Republic . (I am 21years of age.) My father was a Gold/Diamond merchant before his untimely death after his business trip to Tunisia .
He wanted to invest in Tunisia , but a week after he came back from Tunisia he got an accident with my mother of which my mother died instantly but my father died five days after in a private hospital.
On that faithful afternoon, I didn’t know that my father was going to leave me after I had earlier lost my mother, but before he gave up the ghost, he called me to his bed side and told me that he deposited the sum of ($12,500,000.00) Twelve Million Five Hundred
Thousand US Dollars in a financial Volt.
This is the money that realizes from the raw gold/ diamond he just sold before the trip to invest in Tunisia , he deposited the money in a fixed suspense account using my name as the next of kin. He instructed me to seek for a reliable and trust worthy business partner in abroad for investment, now I have succeeded in locating the deposit documents and where the bank.
But due to how wicked my uncle is and the economic of our country is not stable, I am now seeking for your assistance for partnership to join me transfer this money out from my country to your secure account abroad so that you will invest it in any meaningful and lucrative business in your country because I have no experience about investment. I am willing to offer you 20% of the total fund if only you can help me out of my present predicaments. I seek your assistance in the following ways:
(1.) To provide a bank account where this money can be transferred into and sponsor the transfer.
(2.) To make arrangements for me to come over to your country after the successful transferring of the fund into your account, so that I can further my education and also see the investment.
(3.) To invest the money in a profitable business since I am only 21yrs of age and do not know much about business.
(4). I want you to promise me that you are not going to betray me after the money gets into your account.
The worst part of it is that my uncle is trying to kill me over this money because I refused to hand him over the documents covering this money, He has sold all my father's landed properties including his cars which rightful belong to me and he want me to hand over the banking document of my father in my possession which I refused.
Now he said that he will have this money by all means even if it means killing me, but he don’t no where this money is deposited, so because of this, I ran away from home and hide in one church, pending when this money will be transferred so that I can leave the country for my safety.
Thanks and God bless you.
