Dear Sir/ Ma, How are you and the daily activities including your family? Hope everybody is fine. Though we've not met before, my name is, Edward Anderson, 28 years of age; I got your contact from the trust worthy foreigners in your country Chamber of Commerce here in Ghana West Africa. I am a citizen of Sierra Leone, elder son to the director of Sierra-Leone Gold and Diamond Corporation and also the KING of my village who died on the 22 of August 2006 in a plan crash when he was traveling with my mother and my only sister before I received a report from one of his friend that my family was involved in the Russian plane crash and about 170 people died in the ST.PETERBURG, that is how I lost the live of my family in the crash. For more information you can visit this web site http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/5274958..stm After the death of my father, I was instructed by my village chiefs and family elders to give account of my father's administration as the first son and PRINCE according to our tradition; and on the presses I came across some documents and personal letter hidden in a constructed secret safe under his bed. Those documents are about two trunk boxes containing the sum of US$23.7 million US Dollars which he deposited in Volta regional security and finance company in ACCRA GHANA West Africa. While I was still at my country, I contacted the security company about this and they confirmed existence of those boxes. Right now, I have left my country due to renewed outbreak of war and the constant attack of rebels to my kingdom I'm sending you this message from ACCRA GHANA to solicit for your assistance acting as my late father's foreign business partner and help me start a new life. I'm inexperience when it comes to international investment or transferring such fund abroad. I'm just an undergraduate of mechanical engineering. I still want to further my education. If you can help me to move this fund to your country or any other safe location for meaningful investment purposes, you stand to reap 30% of the total fund for your assistance and 70% for my investment. Your urgent reply indicating your interest will help me to stop further search for help. Moreover, remember to keep this as confidential issue between us due to the popularity of my father because I don't want to make any costly mistake that will make me lose my money. What I want is for you to receive the money and send me invitation later to come over there for my investment in your country. All the necessary documents of deposit from the Volta regional security and finance company are with me and the two pictures of the boxes. Thanks for understanding and co-operation. God Bless you. Best regards, Edward Anderson
