Dear Friend,
 My name is Mr. Duke, the first son of the late Mr.KONE Duke who was a cocoa farmer and a business 
man  in our community .Whiles he was still alive, he was so in love with estate development and was 
to  organize an estate development business in Cote dâviore but he could not fulfill his dream 
because of his untimely death.
 After his burial, his lawyer called me and handed over to me an envelop,  in the envelop was an 
instruction that he made a deposit sum of $8 million US dollars with a security company in Ghana 
west Africa on behave of his foreign partner,the money is in a trunk box that he wanted to use the 
money to organize the estate development  business that in case something happen to him, I should 
contact a professional to act as his foreign partner, who knows about  the investment so he can use 
the money to organize the business or invest the fund in any other business my foreign partner deem 
fit to invest the fund.
 I contacted the security company to find out if the trunk box was still in their vault and I was 
told that it is still there and the instruction was that I the first son should come with a foreign 
partner to retrieve the consignment.
 On the certificate of deposit, the box was deposited as family treasure so the security company 
does not know that the box contains money rather contains family treasure. On this ground I am 
contacting you to help me come so we can retrieve the consignment from the security company and put 
the money into any good investment you deem fit  as instructed by my late father.
I am waiting anxiously to get your reply of this mail so I can fax or mail to you the certificate 
of deposit that was given to my late father by the security company so we can proceed ahead.
Duke kone.
