Assalaamu alaykum Dear,
With respect and humility I decided to send this proposal to you, this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honor against your will. Your profile pushed me to send you this mail, I am Ali Rahman, 21years old and the only Son of my late parents Mr. and Mrs. Jimmie Rahman, My father was a highly reputable business man (a cocoa merchant and supplier of agro allied material) who operated in the city of Sabah Malaysia during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad in. February 2003.
Though; his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who traveled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 4 years old, and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on February 12, 2003, he told me about a box he concealed the sum of Three million, . United State Dollars.(USD$3.000,000.00) deposited in one of the security company's which he disguised and declared the box to contain family valuables instead of money, by this way the company does not know the true content of the box. I have in my possession the deposit document which the company gave to my late father when he deposited the box with the security company. I really don't know what to do. This is because I have suffered a lot of hard time here, hidden for my life.
The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. I am in a sincere desire of your assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly and willingly help me as Brother?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is into your hand.
Please, Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Thank you so much,
My sincere regards.
