Dear Respectful One,
Good a thing to write you. I have a proposal for you-this
however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel
you to honour against your will.
I am David Williams 22years old and the only Son of
my late parents Mr.and Mrs.Mike Williams. My father was a highly
reputable busnness magnet-(a cocoa merchant) who operated
in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is sad to
say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one
of his business trips abroad year 12th.Febuary 2003.Though
his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have
been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him
at that time. But God knows the truth!
My mother died when I was just 6 years old,and since then
my father took me so special. Before his death on Febuary
12 2003 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the
hospital and told him that he has the sum of Four
million,Five hundred thousand United State
Dollars.(USD$4.500,000) left in fixed deposit account in
one of the leading banks in Africa.
He further told him that he deposited the money in my
name,and finally issued a written instruction to his lawyer
whom he said is in possession of all
the necessary but legal documents to this fund and the
I am just 22 years old and a university undergraduate and
really don't know what to do.Now I want an account overseas
where I can transfer this funds. This is because I have
suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant
political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father
actually brought sorrow to my life. I am in a sincere
desire of your humble assistance in this regards.Your
suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help me as your Son ?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be
good for you after the money is in your account?
Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as
Thank you so much.
My sincere regards. David Williams
