I am Miss Louisa. Christopher the only daughter of Mr.Christopher from
Republic of Zimbabwe in desire to get somebody who will safe guard my
interest, that of my junior brother (Louis) and this money.Briefly, our
father Mr. Christopher was a Gold and Cocoa merchant who based in Lome Togo,
Abidjan cote d'Ivoire, and had a branch office here in Accra Ghana.My father
was a wealthy Gold/Cocoa merchant who has business in many countries in
Europe, America and Asian countries.According to my father,my own mother

my mother very well.
The story is that my father Mr. Christopher was Poisoned to death by his
business associates about seven months ago, and he died in a private
hospital here in Accra Ghana. But when he was about to die, he called us
beside his sick bed and told us that he deposited the sum of Twenty Million
United State Dollars (US$20,000000M) with a local bank here in Accra, the
economic and administrative capital of Republic of Ghana. This money was
kept for us in my name, his only daughter. Right now I am a first year
student of business management in one of the Universities here.My only
problem now is that since my father has been poisoned to death by his
business ssociates, I don't even trust any other person here again including
my father's brothers and sisters.
Right now, I want you to help us in the following ways:
1)I want you to provide a personal / company's bank Account where this
amount here (US$20,000000M) can be Transferred.

guardian until we finish our studies.
3)You are going to procure admissions for us to continue our studies in one
of the known university in your country.

account for this transfer.
5) That you must prepare immediately to make a working visit to ACCRA
GHANA here so that me and you can see each other and we can then do the
transfer at the same time and we will go back with you to your country.

establishinga further contacts as It regards to this subject matters, so

Direct, on receipt of your positive response. For your information, this
