Dearest ,
Good day and how are you doing today , hope all is well.

I am the son of late ex-president of Togo ( Gnassingbe Eyadema) and my name is Desmond Eyadema, I and my mother are presently residing in Ghana. 

Before the death of my Father he has deposited the sum of $23.5 million US dollars with a security company down here in Ghana . Though my father has kept the fund in a metallic trunk box and declared the content as a "family valuables" during the time of it's deposit.
But because of all the events that has happened during my father's reign, I and my mother knew that we are no longer safe here so we decided to transfer the above mentioned fund to safety in Europe. 

We found a beneficiary who is a Belgium citizen and he agreed to take 20% out of the total fund and help us to secure the balance 80%.
So we made every necessary arrangement and the fund was transfer to our beneficiary " Mr. Herman Waeyen", through a diplomatic Carrier Service.
But as soon as the consignment of the fund arrives in Belgium, then Mr. Herman Waeyen changed his mind and demanded that we should  give him 50%,  so I and my mother did not accept that and we decided to stop the delivery to him and look for a reliable person who could help us to receive the fund on our behalf in USA for investment because the consignment is presently in USA  .

 Sir, I and my mother will offer you 20% because that was our initial agreement with Mr. Herman Waeyen. I hope to provide you with the contact information of the Diplomat who is in charge of the consignment.

I look forward to your quick respond.

Thanks and GOD Bless you.

Desmond Eyadema
