Dearest in the Lord
My Dear I know this letter will come to you as a surprise, I have already thought of what will come to your mind or how you will feel when you see my mail, but because of the persuation I have in the spirit, and the convinction God has placed in my mind, I picked up courage to write you knowing that it is Gods wish.
I am Princess Victoria Gani, daughter of Chief Oti Gani,the King of Delta Kingdom. I am 25 years old and a graduate ofMass Communication. My father was the King of Delta Kingdom the highest oil producing area in Nigeria.
He was in charge of reviving royalties from the multi-national oil companies and government on behalf of the oil producing communities in Nigeria.
After the hanging of the Delta Nine(9) including Ken Saro Wiwa by the late dictator General Sani Abacha, my father suffered stroke and died in August 27th last year. But before his death, he called me and told me he has Twenty Three Million Five Hundred and Sixty Thousand Dollars (USD23,560,000.00) cash in his possession, specially deposited in a Security vault company here.
He advised me not to tell anybody except my mother who is the last wife of the (8) eight wives that he married.
My mother did not bear any male child for him. Which implies that all my
father's properties, companies e.t.c., we have no share in them because my
mother has no male child according to African Tradition. My father
therefore secretly gave me all the relevant documents of the said money,
and told me that I should use this money with my mother and my younger
because he knows that traditionally, if he dies we cannot get anything, as inheritance. He importantly advised me that I should seek foreign assistannce and that I should not invest this money here in Nigeria because of his other wives and male children who happen to be my elders.
I am soliciting for your immediate assistance to get a Bungalow for
us,where I will live with my mother and two younger sisters and further
advise me where and how I will invest the balance money overseas, possibly
products of your company and other profitable ventures.
I believe that by the special grace of God, you will help us move this money out of Nigeria to any country of your choice where we can invest this money judiciously with you. You are entitled to a reasonable part of this money based on our agreement, and God will bless you as you help us, Please reply through my private email,email@example.com
Looking forward to hear from you as soon as possible. Please reply
