From Miss Chantal Kone

Dearest One,
I know that this mail may come to you as unespected since we have not met  or known each other before, but I hope that you will treat this matter with love and fear of God.
I am Miss Chantal Kone the only daughter of  late Mr Kone Fredrick. My Father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory Coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discusson a business deal.

Before the death of my father earlier this year in a private hospital here in Abidjan.He secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has a sum of $7.300.000 (Seven Million Three hundred thousand dollars) left in a suspense account in a local Bank here in Abidjan, that he used my name as the next of kin in deposit of the fund.

He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth  and some huge amount of money his business associates supposed to balance him  from the deal they had that he was poisoned by his business associates, that I should seek for a God fearing foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for  investment purpose, (such as real estate management,five stars hotel etc..).
Sir, I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways.
1) To provide a bank account where this money would be  transferred to.

2) To serve as the guardian of this money since I am a girl of 21 years and I don't know much about bank to bank transfer or business world. 
Moreover , I am willing to offer you 20% of the  sum as compensation for effort input after the  successful transfer of this money to your  designate  account in your country.
Thanks and God Bless you.

Anticipating to hear from you soonest.
Best regards.
Chantal Kone.
