to make up my mind to contact you and offer you this proposal of mine of which my whole life 
depends on.

Due to my age 24 years old, situations of living here with his so called bretheren/relatives that 
are seeking for  my life all angles, I don't know what to do, i need a partner who will help me 
retrive this gold from the security company  to his country and sale them  for immediate investment 
as i have made up my mind to invest  the money.

More over  that will help me stay with him or her in their country to further my educations. I am 
in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards  and your suggestions and ideas will

Please consider this and get back to me and I will like truth and honesty to be our watchword in
