want to confide on you to help me solve this problem, which I have. My late father

remain the next of kin to empower a new foreign partner to assist and work on behalf
of me, it is on this note that I am contacting you to please assist me to make claims
of the consignments from the security company and help us invest the funds for the
benefit of my future.
I have personally contacted the security Company and they have assured me that the
consignment is intact and they are ready to deliver the consignment to any of my late
father partner or anybody I empower to received the consignment in any part of the
world, now what I intend to do now is to empower you for the claim of this
consignment on behalf of me in your country.
Please, this is very confidential, and I have not told anybody before about this, the
consignment contains 50 Carats of purple rough-cut diamond gemstones of Diamond
Creek, Lofa County Origin and $12 Million U.S Dollars which according to what I see
from my late father's will, the money is in two boxes. I count on you and I trust you
because am sure and I have the believed that you can do it and be honest with me.
