Dear Friend, I write you this mail with utmost sincerity and truth, hoping you will be of great help to me. I am Peter Thompson, a 61yrs old english farmer living with Cancer. My condition at home is so bad that my doctor has confirmed that I don't have time left. I am contacting you in regards to my daughter, who is just in high school, with nobody to care of her when I am gone.I need to get a guardian who will invest my funds in estate business and manage the investment till my daughter comes of good age and maturity. You will be given all the rights to claim the benefits and secure for my Jessica.I wouldn't want my lazy cousin whom might be with my child to be aware of such plan till she grows because they will want to rip me off and treat her bad. I will want to give you the authority to act on my behalf, because my girl will be delighted to move to your country. Meanwhile, I would not want her to be involved with any other thing than attending her lectures in school. I will send you details when you write me back Yours truly, Mr Peter Thompson
