Before the death of my father on January 2004 in a private hospital here in Abidjan,he secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has the sum of Eighteen Million,Five Hundred Thousand USdollars(US$18,500,000)left in a fixed/ suspense account in one of the prime banks here in Abidjan waiting until i find a God fearing person to help me.I want to transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate management or hotel management. I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways: 1) To serve as a guardian of this fund since I am only 19years old 2) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to secure a resident permit for me in your country.
