Dear Friend, I want to use this media to ask for your aid in this transaction which I am sure will be of benefit to both you and I but let me apologize for contacting here without your approval or consent,it is because I need someone to help me out of my situation. My name Sammuel from Cameroun a country in the Western region of Africa My father Kaminie Priso was a multi-millionaire known in my country and all over west Africa because of his business establishments in West Africa. He died in October 2005 and left three wives and twenty three(23) children behind.I am his fourth child and my mother only had me for him.Due to our tradition,the wealth has to be divided among his wives and children and this cause a lot of problem in the family. My mother died because of the problem because she is the only educated wife of my father and the other wives thought that it was my mother who drew up the will for my father.On the 10th of Jan this year some armed men came to my mother's house and started firing gun shots which killed my mother and ran away and up till this moment the government refused to do anything about it. After my mother's death,while cleaning the house, I discovered a silver box in my mother's room that is cleverly hidden and I sought after it and have it removed.I was shocked to discover that the box was full of money in united Dollars bills and a small part of it is some gold. I was confused because I didn't know what to do with it,I carried the box and deposited it in a security company in Yaounde,Cameroun and have it declared it as family valuables. I wanted to start to safe this money but the family are using their influence on me to collect the money because they claimed they know that my mother has in her position some money belonging to my father. The first son of the family is a politician and he is trying to use his influence to threaten me.I have locked up in jail for (80) days without food in the prison and now that I have just been released I have decided to look for partner abroad who will help me to transfer the money. This is why I have sent this mail to you without anticipation for your permit,the amount of the money according to the documents I found on it is $US8,600,000:00 (Eight million six hundred thousand US Dollars) , I am ready to offer you 30% for your assistance which you will render for me,I am doing this because I know I am going to take your precious time in doing this transaction and I want you to please do understand me.
