Hello Dear, I will want you to bear with me after reading my mail, and be of good assistance to me. However you know bad people in this world has made us not to trust the good once again, but as for me you can trust me and my only son. Before anything, let me tell you about myself. I am Mrs. Rali Salami wife to late Dr. Ahmed Salami. My husband died last year when me and him and my only son where coming back from a wedding, and our car have an accindent, before they could took us to the hospital my husband died on our way to the hospital. For your information, me and my only son did not die, so we thank God for keeping us alife, and i pray God will always receive the soul of my late husband any where he is today. Well, i contacted you because after our car accindent my condition is very bad, of which i am very sick, so that is why i am writing you this mail, because my late husband deposited the sum of $4,500,000 only in a finance company . Furthermore, my doctor said i will not last for the next 2 weeks, so that is why i am writing you this proposal, in order for you to assist me to transfer the funds into your country, and help my only son to further his education in your country, because i know i will die, but by the power of God and your assistance, nothing will happen to my son, so try all your best to help me in this transaction, because i don't want my only son to stay here in West Africa, for bad people here not to kill him and run with all the money my husband deposited before he died. In addition, i will want you to get back to me after reading my mail, so it will enable me to send you all the deposit documents that covers the fund in the finance company, and a copy of authorization letter that will authorize you as my new appointed beneficiary that is going to receive the fund on behalf of my son. Finally, i will be looking forward to read from you, and please do not fail to respond my mail through my personal email address that is stated herein ( email@example.com ) Thanks and God bless you. Yours, Mrs. Rali Salami and only Son David.
