Hello, I am Ms Tessy Dumbuya from Freetown Sierra Leone in Africa. I am sorry to bother you with my problem, but because I don't know what to do or who to run to for help. My late father Chief Coker Dumbuya was a Gold/Diamond Merchandise Exporter from Sierra Leone and Ghana to North America, South, Central American and Europe, but died of Ebola Virus last year alongside my mother and my only brother. Ever since my late father's death my uncles has been disturbing me over the distribution of his wealth, they have already succeeded in taking over all my late father's properties in Freetown and leaving me with nothing. Then I discovered that my father has the sum of $12,000,000.00 USD (Twelve Million USA Dollars) and 60KG of Gold he deposited in Bank of Ghana as belonging to his Foreign Business Partner and I have all complete proof documents in my custody. This is why I decided to contact you to stand as my late father's Foreign Partner and help me recover this money and gold from Ghana, since it is only when I present my late father's business partner, only then WILL this be released. I am presently living in a refugee Camp in Ghana. I will be glad if you can help me receive this money in your name and I will come over to meet with you in your Country, since I do not wish to go back to Sierra Leone with this money. You will take 30% of the money and keep the rest for me. This is my only hope of starting a new life. Please reply me through email@example.com as I am stranded here and can not even feed myself well. Regards, Ms Tessy Dumbuya Email firstname.lastname@example.org
