Dear sir/madam

I greet you in the name of our lord Jesus Christ. My name is MRS  
Eileen Smith.  I live in Nigeria with my children. My late husband was 
aloving, caring and hardworking businessman who died unfortunately In a 
ghastly auto crash. Before thesudden death of my beloved husband, and 
father of mydaughters, my late husband intended to establish a business 
the united states of America with the sumof$12.5 million united states 
dollars, but unfortunatelyhe died before this proposed venture. 
Following hisdeath, his family members insisted that I am notentitled 
to his 
property (Assets and money) since I am a woman and my offspring's all 
girls as I do not have
a male child for my husband.
 Well, according to some barbaric traditional laws here in Nigeria 
(Africa) which doesn't permit a woman to inherit a man's property, as 
are expected by tradition to take over the management of his business 
and other properties including myself who automatically becomes
a wife to one of his immediate brothers. Unfortunately to this wicked 
family members, the $12.5million united states dollars which my late 
husband intended to use in establishing a business in the United States 
was deposited in a bank account unknown to his family .I and the lawyer 
is the only one aware of this money, so I have discussed this matter 
with a staff of the bank that i want this money personally so that I 
be able to take care of my children's educational needs
since my husband's family members vehemently opposed the furtherance of 
their education. According to the staff of the bank, the best way to 
secure this money
is to transfer this money to a bank account outside Nigeria For 
safe-keeping, later it will be used for
business establishment subject to the Advise of whosoever finally 
assists us. At this juncture, I
there fore ask for your sincere assistance in providing us with your 
bank details and the enablement
to facilitate the remittance of this fund into your nominated account. 
As soon as I get your positive
response, I shall provide you with all the necessary detail for this 
transfer. However, I have decided to to give you 20% of the total money 
as a reward for your sincere assistance and the remaining 65% of the 
money will be for my investment as I will want to keep aglow my late 
husbands dream of investing in real estate. To be able to help me, 
send through my email, your personal details including your contact 
information for easy communication. Thanking you for
your anticipated response.
MRS  Eileen Smith
