FROM Mr. David Anderson Jr. Dearest One, Good day to you. I have a proposal for you. I am Mr. David Jr, 20 years old and the only son of late Mr. and Mrs. Anderson. My father was a highly reputable business man (petroleum engineering consultants) who operated in the capital of Ivory Coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on 12th.August 2002. My mother died when I was just 6 years old since then my father took me so special. Before his death on 12 August 2002, he told me about a box he concealed the sum of (15.2 Million United State Dollars) deposited in one of the financial company over in Europe, which he declared the box to contain family valuables instead of money, for security reasons, by this way the company does not know the true content of the box. The deposit document which I have in my possession carries my late father's name as the depositor, while I'm the next of kin on the same document. I am just 20 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis in Ivory coast. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. right now i am in Europe looking for an assistance on this transaction. I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. However, I want you to assist me to clear the funds and invest it for reliable and profitable business , 20% of the funds would be given to you after all the funds has been remitted to your nominates accounts. Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible on my private email :( email@example.com ) Thank you so for your concern. Mr. David Anderson Jr.
