Hello Dear,

I hope this mail meets you in good health. However strange or surprising this contact might seem to you as we have not meet personally or had any dealings in the past, I humbly ask that you take due consideration of its importance and immense benefit.

I am Richard Konan, the only son of late Mr. Johnson Konan, I wish to request for your assistance in an immediate transaction. My late father was a contractor and an Estate consultant before his death, on his sick bed, he instructed me and my mother to look for a foreigner who will assist us for an investment overseas.

He discloses to us about Eight million United States dollars(US$8,000,000) Which he kept for Investment in a financial institute. After several months of funeral of my late father, My uncles and some members of the family started treating us bad with their human wickedness and diabolic powers; thereby forcing my mother out of her matrimonial home which at end they eliminated my mother and left me motherless and fatherless.

I humbly seek your assistance to invest this money in your country, and requiring your assistance in the claims and transfer of the same funds into your personal/company account for investment, I will be glad to give you 15% of the total sum

Awaiting your soonest and positive response.

Truly yours,
Richard Konan
