Good day and Compliments,
I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly and you would never regret this. I am a female student from University of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. I am 24 yrs old.
Well, my lovingly parents died some years ago and left I and my younger brother behind. My late father was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death. I am his only daughter and eldest child and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth now because my younger brother is still young. Now am matured to face the life. I know my entire father's wealth.
He deposited the sum of USD15, 000.000 Dollars (Fifteen Million US Dollars) in a Security Company here in Burkina Faso in West African Country. Due to my late father position during the lodging of the money he told the security company management the content of the box was gold that belongs to his foreign partner and it was agreed and signed that on his absence the consignment will only be release to his partner by authorization of his only daughter which I am.
This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from Shell petroleum development company (SPDC) and chevron Oil Company operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction.
I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town. I therefore seek your urgent attention and apply to the security company as my late father business partner and retrieve the box containing the total sum of USD15, 000.000. I urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the security company to your country. I felt happy when I saw your contact because I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me to invest this money wisely after been shipped to your country.
I am ready to pay 20% of the total amount to you if you help me claim the consignment and another 10% interest per Annual after Income to you, for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over. If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund, kindly reach me.
Please, note that this is legitimate business because the money in question belongs to my father and no risk involved and I hope to commence the project as quick as possible, I will send you my Pictures as soon as I hear from you.
Princess Roukia Sawadaogo.
