Dear Friend, Is my pleasure for writing you this letter, hope you are fine? I want to use this opportunity to introduce myself well to you, I am Ben Umar, The son of a late Chief Agyman Umar of D R CONGO, I came to know you in the course of my search for a reliable and God fearing partner and I decide to contact you because I believe you are a reputable person and I felt you can help us over this confidential matter.I count on your integrity and honesty to be able to handle this business. I have a trunk box that contain $6.5million U.S DOLLARS which is already in Dubai with a diplomatic shipping agent . We are ready to give you 30% from the total money because that was the initial agreement we have with my later father partner, Mr Anas Zaid, the consignment is right now in the UAE, my Late father business partner Mr Anas Zaid, who was suppose to receive this consignment containing the money could not be located at the long run. We have been trying to reach him for the past three days since the consignment arrive at Dubai, But there is no response and we don't really know what happen to her so we need your help to receive this consignment on behalf of me and my mother. Please be honest to us we are counting on you, The director of the shipping company just inform us yesterday that if we can not provide our partner within this period of time, that the consignment we be return back to GHANA, so we need you to stand as my family trustee to receive the consignment in Dubai. If you are willing to help us receive this consignment, all you just have to do is to contact the shipping company here in Ghana so that they can give you instruction to their agent holding the consignment in Dubai. If not for God they would have return the consignment back to Africa but God has been helping us. Please reply my mail so that I can give you the contact of the shipping company to discuss with them on the release of this consignment to you . Please i will like you to send me your identity , address and phone number , so we can know you better. Regards, Ben Umar For the family.
