Hello Dear,
I will like to go into biusness relationship with you, if you can promise to be very good to me.
I am a young man of 28years, studing in the UNIVERSITY OF GHANA,(legon).
the only son of the late CHIEF NANA MENSAH.
My father was a Gold and cocoa merchant based in Accra, Ghana and Abidjan (Ivory Coast), he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their business trips.   Before the death of my father on 29th June 2000 in a private hospital in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has a sum of USD$12.5M (Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S ), deposited in Bank in (Accra Ghana) that he used my name as his only son for the next of kin in depositing the fund.  
 He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates, that I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as expansion of his existing cocoa business and real estate management here on how best to transfer this money to overseas.
hence i am ignorant of abroad, i will like you to give me an advice on the nest step to take on this.
now that i want you To serve as the guardian of this fund since I am still in the university. And also make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to help me secure a residential permit in your country.   
 I am willing to offer you 25% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/input after the successful transfer of this fund into your nominated account overseas, while 5% will be set aside to offset any expenses we may incure.
NB; from that year 2000 till now i have been confused on how to handle this by my self, but now i think that i am old enough to make a move on it.
i hope to hear from you soon.
Best regards,
