Please I would like you to assist me as urgent as you can, before they kill me. My father is a wealthy cocoa merchant and also a politican. Trouble began early last two year when my father's associates began Suspecting that my father is not giving proper accounts of all the tonnes of cocoa being cultivated by Local farmers in some villages. This mistrust deepens between Oct-Sept, 2005 when they discovered a Very large some of money my father deposited with a Bank here in ABIDJAN-COTE D'IVOIRE (FORMALLY IVORY COAST in West Africa. As a result of this discovery and the envy on the money he was poisoned by his associates. At his hospital bed, he revealed to me the reasons of his sickness and directed me where to get the documents of the said Deposit which he made on my name as the next of kin, being the only child. He advised me that in case he die, that I should not stay in this country Accra Ghana because his associates will equally kill me hence my mother had died five years ago of breast cancer. He also instructed that if he dies, I should look for a foreign partner who will help me to transfer the money out of this place (Abidjan Coted'Ivoire), to his account and the person will help me to invest the money in that country. Based on this, I had to contact you bearing in mind that you will be humane enough to protect my life. My father finally died on the 16th of July, 2006 and since then, I was out of school and went into hiding because of my father's associates. All the relevant documents of the $6.000, 000.
