PARTNERSHIP FOR BUSINESS TRANSACTION Dear Sir/Madam Due to my careful search for an honest, reliable and sincere business partner, i got your contact from the internet and i ask if you can be trusted not to break an agreement?

My father was a highly reputable business magnet (a GOLD MERCHANT) who operated in the capital of (MALI, BAMAkO) during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in ITALY during one of his business trips abroad on march 2002, my father deposited gold that worth of Eight million one Hundred thousand USD cash($ 8.1 million us dollars) in a security company in ITALY, and my name appears as the next of kin, 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 be highly regarded. Please permit me to ask these few questions:- 1. Can you honestly help me? 2. Can I completely trust you? 3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you?
