Warm greetings to you and your family in the name of our lord Jesus Christ. I am Eric Timothy the only son of late Mr and Mrs Johnson Timothy. My father was a very wealthy Rubber plantation merchant and the managing director of J & T rubber plantation farm in Freetown, the economic capital city of Sierra-Leone, my father was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outings on a business trip.
My mother died when I was a baby and since then my father took me and my only kid sister (Joy) so special. Before the death of my father on November 2009 in a private hospital here in Abidjan, he secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has the sum of ($12.500,000) left in fixed / suspense account in one of the prime bank .
He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates. That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate management or hotel management.
I am willing to offer you 25% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/input after the transfer of this fund into your account overseas.
Thank you for your signify interest to assist me and my sister. Hoping to hear from you soon. May God bless you and preserve our friendship in good faith.
