Good a thing to write you. I have a proposal for you-this however is not mandatory nor will I in 
any manner compel you to honour against your will.I am Prince Terry Akimbo 18 years old, the only 
surviving son of my late Mr.& Mrs R.Akim. Sorry to tell you that my late father  was a highly 
reputable busnness tygoon-(in Gold, Diamond and cocoa merchant)who operated in entire Africa  
countries during his days.

It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously which happened during one of his business trips 
abroad early september 2005.His sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been 
masterminded by his brother an uncle of mine in collabration with some of his weaked collaeques who 
travelled with him.    Only God knows the truth! !
He ate food poisoned and was flown back home,but before his death on 20TH September 2005 he send 
his secretary who accompanied him to the hospital to fatch me, beside his sick bed he told me in 
confident of having the sum of 3,500,000 US DOLLARS (THREE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND USA 
DOLLARS) which he deposited in one of the local banks here.He also told me that he deposited this 
fund in a special account(suspence bank account) for security reasons and made me the next of kin 
as his only child. He also explained to me earlier before his death,that it was because of this 
wealth that he was poisoned by his business assocaites in colaboration of his so-called 
brothers.That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer 
this money to and use it for investment purposes.
After his death, few days later his burial was organised and he was buried normally, but they same 
uncle started making problem with me by taking away all the landed properties belonging to my 
father even treating to kill me, So I haveno option than to ran away from their sight to a nearby 
country where he deposited the money.I want you now to assist me in this transaction by absorbing 
the money in any of your bank account as a beneficiary of the fund, and also help me how and where 
to use it for an investment purpose and to further my educaton which is more important to me. I am 
just an  orphan  and victim of circumstance because my mother died when I was under age and right 
now residing in a refugee camp in a country (Rep.of Ivory Coast) where I don't have family nor 
friend and I really don't know what to do. I need  help from you please. This is because I have 
suffered a lot of set backs and my life have been miserable as a result of incessant political 
crisis in my country Sierra Leone and  even here in Ivory coast.The death of my Father actually 
brought sorrow to me.
But I facing a little problem with the bank for the next of kin,My late father appended a clause 
stating that;I the next of kin,Must attend the age of 20 years before taking full control of the 
bank account,But in the invent of war and natural disaster in here,the bank accept to honour a 
transfer request from me which is garranted for safety of  the funds,and in this case I must have 
and investor maneger as foreign partner outside africa.
I am not yet 20 years,and here is not a safe country at this time because of the constant war and 
polital crisis.The bank is insisting that I must fufil the conditions putting down by my late 
father, and can not lay hand on any of my late father foreign partners.I would like you to be my 
investment Maneger, so that I would instruct the bank to transfer my money to the country for 
investment Purposes.
I am taking alot of precursion due to the rate of scaming happening arround the world because I 
don't want to loose this only heritage left for me to start a new life.
