My father had a bullet wounds by the rebels on his way traveling to the Capital city Freetown along with my sister.

Before his death he told to me about the box containing $18 million U.S Dollars to look after my self and my Mother and shouldnt go to Sierra-Leone for my safety, why my father deposit the fund in the security company is for safety of the fund, Presently, my mother and I are in Europe to notify the security company for the claims for the FUND, and we are presently in the refugee camp. Therefore I want you to help us to claim this deposit and as well lecture me on how best we can invest this money in your country. My father told me it is dangerous to invest this money in Africa to avoid suspicious, and due to with the economic and political instability facing Africa countries that is why I want to invest the money still in abroad.
