I lived with my Ex-Boyfriend before I had a problem as a result of his misbehavior. I've been having a problem with my Dad who i live with but right now due to our differences, i have left the United States for africa my Mom is from United Kingdom (andover)but she`s late now. MY Dad works with Oil Contractors in UK and Africa include some parts of the Asian and American. I work with my father as his personal auditor and we move around for his contracts whereever he is awarded. My first boy friend, Victor Glashow, absconded with my dad's money which was kept with me after a completion of a contract in EAST london,UK. When my boy friend got absconded with the undisclosed sum of USdollars, this brought the first brokeup between me and my dad, cos he thought, we have the deal together, but not knowing that I'm innocent about this. So my dad has been harsh and tough against me about this. Then when I perceived all his behaviors towards me and the bad acts of his newly gotten wife, i decided to leave pennsylvania to meet a friend in Lagos in west africa whom have meet during our stay there for a contract with N.N.P.C. I left because my dad have been treating me bad and stopped me from working with him even having any access to his assets, and i felt no where to go than to leave the states to search for an investment here. Now, for you to know im not in the states now, you can call any of my above Telephone, it will only be ringing, if not yet deactivated by the service provider, i left in my personal room in my dad's house. My hope of getting an investment here with the money is to no avail or success. Now, I'm in need of your help, have gotten the enuogh money to run myself when I get back to where you are, i want to come over to your end and stay with you for main time, I don't want to live here anymore, you know I'm a foreigner here and it is absolutely danger for me here, so that is why i need your gesture assistance. How i want you to help me? I have some money, which I've gotten from an over invoiced Contract renumeration executed by my dad with some contractors, so I have taken up the money from the contractors, but I'm hiding up from the girl I stayed with here in Porto-Novo, because i might got setup if they know i have such huge amount of money (3,500,000.00$), so for me to be more safe and secure, I put this money in a box and got it locked up with a security code known to me only, and I deposited the box with some of my travelling luggages with a Security and Insurance Company who render private diplomatic delivery service and i told them that the two boxes are my travelling luggage, which I wa So, I want the box sent to you while i catch up with you as soon as it is been delivered to you while I pay you up your Rent charge and a reasonable amount for compensation, only 30% of the money in the box to you. Every arrangement for the delivery is kinda perfect, I have obtained customs papers for private freight and there are seals on the box showing that it is a private delivery and check performed, it is free from customs checks, it will be delivered at your door step by the diplomats of the security company, you do not need to burn out to receive it. And the boxes have security codes lock known to me only, only me can open the boxes, except if I tell anyone the Code, so the Boxes cannot be opened on the Way of delivery to you. I couldn't stay with the boxes in the lodge because it is not safe for me to do so, then I have to put it in a Security and Insurance Company for safety. Therefore, I want you to contact me as soon as possible, so that you can make the Clearance from the Security Company as the Recipient of my Boxes. And once the box gets, I will be there with you, then we can open the box together or i will tell you the code to open it, so that you can arrange everything properly before my arrival. Like I said, I will fulfill my 30% promise of the money to you for your assistance and we can meet for a better living. I will appreciate your trust towards this and hoping to hear from you and to meet you inperson. Please, kindly make your response to my email(email@example.com) so that i can read your message easily and we can proceed from there. Regards Kathleen
