assalam alaikum and may the peace of gracious Allah be with you,please I have a problem which I needed a help from you,I have decided to write you for help. 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 in a state of delinma and your profile pushed me to send you this mail, I am Amina Hassan, 19 years old and the only daughter of
my late parents Mr. and Mrs.Hassan. My father was a highly reputable business magnet (a cocoa merchant) who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days.It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on 12th.Febuary 2004.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of > his who travelled with him at that time. But Allah knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 4 years old, and since then my father took me so special.
Before the death of my father on 12 2004 he secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has the sum of Seven million, five hundred thousand United State Dollars. US($7.500,000) left in fixed/suspense account in one of the prime banks here in Abidjan ,that he used my name as his only daughter for the next of Kin in depositing of the fund .
I am just 19 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast. 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. Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help me as your daughter?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question
will be good for you after the money is in your account? Please, Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible.
Thank you so much.My salaam to your family.
My sincere regards,
