Please Dear, I am Marcus Edi , the son of Mohammad Edi. My father was a well known gold and diamond dealer from Darfur in Sudan. He was gruesomely murdered in cold blood on the 26th January this year 2006 during bombing of the village of Rahad Kabolong in the western Sudanese state of North Darfur with my mother.Before their death,He informed me that he secretly deposited the sum of US$4.500.000.00 Million (Four Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)with a Finance Firm. However, he gave me all the documents covering the deposited fund and instructed me to come down here in Senegal with my younger sister for the retrieval and transfer of the money to a foreign trustee for a sustainable investment. I therefore solicit for your assistance to claim the fund and as well to transfer the fund into your private or company account for onward investment in your country under your control,because at my age,i don't have a business idea. So,all we are asking is that for you to stand as my fathers foreign partner to the Finance Firm to enable us retrieve the fund out from the Finance Firm Kindly reply immediately for more details on the procedure and all vital documents will be forwarded to you to ensure a smooth and successfull transaction. Thanks for your anticipated understanding and co-operation. Best regards, Marcus Edi
