I am Charles Adams the son of late Chief Mike Adams and my sister Lilian. Our father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory Coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business deal abroad. We are contacting you to seek your good assistance to transfer and invest the sum of US$9.5M belonging to my late father which he deposited in a Finace Company. When our mother died ,in 1998 our father took me and my junior sister special because we are motherless. Before the death of our father He secretly called us on his beside and told us that he has a sum of $9,500.000 (Nine Million Five Hundred united states dollar) Which he deposited in a Finace Company on his name. He also explained to us that it was because of this wealth and some huge amount of money his business associates supposed to balance him from the deal they had that he was poisoned by his business associates, We are honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways. 1) To act as the foreign partner of our father by claiming this fund from the Finace Company for further transfer and investment to your designated bank account abroad. 2) To serve as the guardian of this since I am a young man of 21 years and my younger sister just 19 years. Moreover , we are willing to offer you 10% of the sum as compensation for effort input after the successful transfer of this fund to your designated account in your country.
