Hello my Dear .
My name is Mrs,Suzan Amazi former staff of Air Afrique hostess,A nationality of cotonou Benin Republic in West Africa. I am a widow being that I lost my husband some year's ago. My husband, late Mr.Jeremiah amazi, was a serving director of the GOLD exporting board until his death. He was assassinated in September (2006) by the rebels following a political uprising.
Before his death, he had an account with a bank in a Suspense account here in cotonou Benin Republic up to the tune of THREE million five United State dollars ($35,000000.00).However, due to my bad health situation occasioned by cancer of the lungs, i wish you to do me a favour to receive this fund to a safe account in your country or any safer place as the beneficiary so that you will invest it in a good business venture like real estate and industrial production for the benefit and education of my son, David and he is only 16yrs old, who will be coming to stay under your kind custody after the transfer for his education and future because my health is failing me.
At this present, I am too weak and down and am afraid that I might not survive my situation but God knows the best and I pray that whatever happens to me, you should take care of my son David for me.I shall be going in for a surgery operations of the cancer of the lungs soon and desire this money to be transferred to you fast.
I do not wish to leave this money in the bank because bankers might take advantage of my son's age who is just 16years old and too young to handle this kind of money.My late husbandâs relatives who should have handled this situation for me are not good type. Since my illness, they have succeeded in stealing most of my late husband's properties except this money which they do not know about and I do not want my only son David to get involved with them because they are dangerous and greedy.
I will be submitting your name to the bank where my late husband deposited this money and confirm you as our family friend whom I wish this money to be transferred to. We have also mapped out 75% for ourselves, 25% for your cordial assistance.If you will handle this for me, please am l mooking forward to hear from you for further instruction on what to do.
Thanks and may God bless you.
Mrs,Suzan Amazi and Son.
