WITH LOVE. Dear Friend, I know you will see my letter to you as an embarrassment considering the fact that we do not Know ourselves. Well, following the sudden death of my husband.I have been thrown into a state of utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness by late husband ly members I have been subjected to physical and psychological torture by them.My late husband intended to establish a business Abroad with the sum of $4.9m(united state dollars),but unfortunately hedied before this proposed venture. Following his death, his family members insistedthat I am not entitled to his property (Assets and money) since I am a woman and my offspring's all girls, as I do not have a male child for my husband Well, according to some barbaric traditional laws here in (Africa) which doesn't permit a woman to inherit a man's property, as they are expected by tradition to take over the management of his business and other properties including myself who automatically becomes a wife to one of his immediate brothers.Unfortunately to these wicked family members, do not know that my latehusband deposited money with a Finance House unknown to his family member. I are the only one aware of this money, so I have discussed this matter with our family lawyer that i want this money personally so that I will be able to take care of my children educational needs. According to our family lawyer, the best way to secure this money is to transfer this money to a bank account outside my country For safe-keeping, later i can then use it for business establishment. I therefore ask for your sincere assistant to facilitate the remittance of this fund from this Finance House. However, I have decided to giveyou (25%) of this fund as a reward for your sincere assistance, while 5% will be for the settlement any expense made in cost of this. As soon as I get your positive response, I shall provide you with all the necessary detail for this transfer.I am seriously considering to settle down abroad in a friendly atmosphere like yours as soon as this fund get into your account so that I and my family can start all over again if only you wish, but if it is impossible,just help me in diverting this fund into your account.Please honesty is the watch word in this transaction. I will require your telephone and fax numbers so that we can commence communication immediately.I will greatly appreciate if you accept my proposal in good faith.Please expedite action. Best Regards.
