Moreover,Let me introduce my self to you, my name is Miss. Mercy. Joseph Young,Am 23 years old girl, and university student.I am from West Africa, Currently I am living in Dakar Senegal for Security reason,I am searching for true/serious relationship and assistance, and am ready to relocate. I am 23 years old girl as i said before originated from Ivory Coast and an orphan. But presently I am residing in the Refugee Camp here in Dakar Senegal as a result of The civil war pitted the Muslim north against Christians and animists in the south, leaving some 1.5 million people dead.
My father Mr.Joseph Young was the former rebel leader, He died on Sunday, 14 August 2005 following a helicopter crash alongside with 12 top government officials just 22days after he was appointed as the vice president. Some southerners accused the government of having a hand in the crash, and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said the cause was not clear.
When my Father died, I was living with my step-mother happily until when thing changed and she wanted me to be fooling around, and when she found out that there was a money deposited in my name as the next of kin, she asked me to travel with her to Dakar Senegal where the money is deposited so that I can withdraw the money since I am the next of kin. Unfortunately I refused because she is treating me so bad and doing all sorts of things to me. When I refused she threatened to kill me, so that she can travel down to Dakar Senegal and claim the fund. Then I managed and travelled down to Dakar Senegal through road to withdraw the money so that I can start a better life and take care of myself.On my arrival, the Branch manager of the Bank whom I met in person told me that base on their banking law and my statue as a refugee I have to present a trustee who will stand on my behalf to claim the fund.This money is USD11,700,000 dollars Eleven Million seven Hundred.
Though you may wondering why I am so soon giving you all these information without seeing you first, well,I will say that my instinct still tells me that you could be true to me. It is my intention to compensate you with 30% of the total money for your services while 10 % will be for the motherless baby homes, orphanage and charity organization, less privileged and the balance shall be my capital in my establishment in your country. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent reply indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely.
More so, I will like to disclose much to you if you can help me to relocate in your country because my Step-Mother has threatened to assassinate me to claim this fund. Also be informed that I have confirmed from the bank in Dakar Senegal that the money is still unclaimed. You will also help me to a place were the money will be establish a more profitable business venture in your Country. Moreover, you will also help me by recommending a nice University in your country so that I will complete my studies.Attached is my photo for your record.
