Good Day, This letter is from Gideon kwami but it is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honor against your will. I am Gideon Kwami, 24 years old and the only son of my late parents Mr. and Mrs. Kwami. Amount envolved ($12,000,000-00.usd) I got your information in a Professional database when I was searching through internet for a reliable, honest and trustworthy person to entrust this business with. I was simply inspired and motivated to pick your contact from the many names in the list of the directory after I, go into prayers/fasting. Well, my father was the rebel leader of the Liberian crisis at earlier last two years before his sudden death 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 March 12/2003 he called his friend who accompanied him to hospital and told him to call me, on my arrival to the hospital my father told me that he has the sum of twelve million Dollars. (12,000,000-00 USD) he deposited in his name, in a security company in Ghana for safekeeping, and told me where he kept the documents of his secret funds deposited in Accra - Ghana, the most peaceful nation in Africa. I am with all the documents which my father used to deposit the money, and he told me that he disguised the content to the security as Family Valuable for security Reason, and he warned me that I should not disclosed to the security company that the content is money to avoid trace due to his position in Liberia. Please I want you to stand as my fatherís partnership to claim the consignment which contends the money out from the security company. I am just 24 years old and a University undergraduate and really, I don't know what to do.I,contacted you because I have suffered a lot of set back as a result of incessant political crisis here in Africa. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. It's my pleasure to bring to your notice that after my late father was murdered, Liberian government seized all my fathers belonging. Moreso you should understand that due to the tension that was imposed on me, I am currently in Ghana under the refugee camp to making sure that my life was safe. Now permit me to ask these few questions. (1)Can you honestly help me as your son? (2)Can I, completely trust you? (3)That you will not ask more shares after this money is under control or you try to sit on my money because you know that I donít have any body to stand on my behalf? (4) What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after you get this money out from the security company? Please, consider this and get back to me. With regards. Gideon Kwami.
