Hello With due respect,
With profound respect and humble submission, I beg to state the following few lines for your kind consideration, I hope you will spare some of your valuable minutes to read the following appeal with sympathetic mind. I must confess that it is with great hopes, joy and enthusiasm that I write you this mail which I know and believe by faith that it must surely find you in good condition of health. My name is Master Richard Shuba; I am the only Son of my late parents Mr. and Mrs Bruno Shuba. My father was a highly reputable business magnet who operated in the capital of Ivory Coast during his days.
It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on the 12th September 2005. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of mine who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 6yrs old, and since then my father took me so special. Before the death of my father on September 2005, he called me and informed me that he has the sum of Four Million five hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$4.5) he deposited in a BANK over there in Europe. He told me that he deposited it in my name, and also gave me all the necessary legal documents regarding to this deposit.
I am just a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do. Now I want an honest and GOD fearing partner overseas who I can stand for me with assistance and after the transaction I will come and reside permanently in your country till such a time that it will be convenient for me to return back home if I so desire. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. I also want to invest the fund under your care because I am ignorant of business world.
I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.
Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Immediately I confirm your willingness, I will send to you more details involved in this matter Here is my e-mail address( email@example.com).
Master Richard Shuba
