Dear sir,
 I am sorry for barging inh you like this but be as it may, i can only say that it is circusmstance and the will of God that made it so.
 I am Ms. Amina Bangura, though resident in Bamako, the republic of Mali, i am a citizen of Liberia. I came to Mali with my parents in the heat of the Liberian war. My father was a businessman who traded on gold dust. Last year, he died of natural causes according to his doctor.
 When my father fell sick and it was becoming certain he may not survive, he told me and my mum about the box he deposited with a security company here in Mali. He told us that inside the box is a total sum of 6.5million USD. Everything he has saved all his life. He had no money in the bank.
The burial and funeral of my late father has came and gone. It is now over one year. I went to the seucurty company to retrieve the box but i was told that my father was owning the company some money which must be paid before anything. I do not have a penny to my name in the whole world so how do i raise money to pay them. That is the main reason why i choose to reach to you.
 Am not asking you to send me any money. I just want you to contact the security company and tell them you are my father's business partner and that you want them to deliver to you in your country, the box that he deposited with them. You and them will now sort it out. You will send us money to come up to your country when they have sent you the box. I will let you have 22% of the total money.
 I will give yiou the compete details when i get your reply.
 I remain sincerely,
 Amina Bangura
