Hello. I am making this contact with you anticipating your kind consideration and co-operation. My name is Mrs. Anita Tofa, wife of late John Tofa. My late husband John was a successful business man based in Ghana. He died Five months ago at the age of 56, after a brief illness, and the Doctor confirmed that he was poisoned. Now, the tradition and customs of the Community where my late husband came from demands that any woman that does not have a male born child for her husband, has no right to any of her husband’s properties when he dies. According to their tradition and customs, the estate of my late husband is to be shared among my late husband’s siblings. This is my plight right now. My late husband’s brothers have taken over all the properties belonging to my late husband including business managements, bank accounts, houses and cars, and have sent me and my teenage daughters out of my husband's house just because I do not have a male child for my late husband. Yes, even in this modern age they still practice such an evil customs and traditions which lack moral values. The reason why I am contacting you now is to seek your help, and hope you would be kind enough to help me out of this condition. I have in my possession, a document that covers the deposit of $10.700.000.00 USD and 120kgs of Gold, which my late husband deposited in a Security House as family treasures with my name on the document as his next of kin and beneficiary. Last week I contacted the manager of the Security House and was told that the deposit is very intact, and that I can come for it whenever I wish. The point is that I cannot make use of these funds here, under the eyes of my late husband's family; they see me as threat to them, and they could kill me for that reason. I am presently hiding in my elder sister's house a bit far from them.Please have pity on my daughter and save my child's future, this is my only hope for my child to continue with her education. All I want is your help and assistance to get these funds to your Country immediately before my late husband brothers come to know of it and eventually claim it just like they did to other properties. This is our only hope for survival. I am willing and ready to reward you with 30% of the total fund; so far the fund can be secured for me to take care of my children, my children are my only happiness today, and I cannot stand to watch them go through undeserving pains, i know that this is coming to you as a surprise. I am in desperate need of your help now and you will forever be blessed for listening to the cry of a sorrowful widow. I await your response. Sincerely yours, Mrs. Anita Tofa.
