I am very happy that you will read my mail today in a perfect state of mind, please do not be surprised or get offended for receiving this message from me, It just that I have been obliged to lay a mere trust on you due to my situation here in senegal dakar. Having searched through the internet from where I got you, I strongly believe in my heart that you must be honest and sincere person for me to disclose my life secrets so that you will render your full help and assistance towards me.
I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me and my brother with a great motion to sincerely establish a mutual relationship/business with your company. Please, kindly permit me to share my problems with you. I got your contact through my search for a truthful person/company in Abroad that will assist me mostly to invest into a secured investment abroad as I can't do it alone. God almighty will bless and reward you aboundantly and you would never regret this. I am 25years old a female student from University of Kenya. I'd like any person who can be caring, loving and home oriented. I will love to have a long-term elationship with you and to know more about you. I would like to build up a solid foundation with you in time coming if you can be able to help me in this transaction.
My name is lala Malik. I am a citizen of Kenya,I lost my father recently in the war crisis (political problems) that turned my country into shambles,He was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death. based on this am trusting you to help me develop my future as the only surviving child of late Alhaji David Malik who is a miner and a big farmer in my country before his death on his arrival at the airport from Paris. The rebels short him of which he died after 2days in the hospital.
After his death my uncle had decided to take all our landed properties including fiscal cash and other house properties, but before my father died, he told me that he made some deposit of USD$11.9million United States dollars as he was hoping to use the money in purchasing mining equipment through his partners in Europe .This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from Shell petroleum development company (SPDC) and chevron oil company operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction.
But I had tried to search if I can get in touch with any of his Europe partner, but could not get through. this is my aim of contacting you to help me receive the money from the security firm in Senegal, as my fathers partner because I have tried to consult the firm over the claim, but they told me that my father intend to transfer the box to his partner in Abroad. This is why I had contacted you to help me out of this. I am only 25years and do not have any idea on this matter.I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town.
Please I need your assistance to talk with the safe security firm in Senegal . So that they can move the box to your country while I come over to your country to continue my education, I will give you the contact so that you can apply for the claim immediately for the retrieval because the security firm does not know that the true content of the box is money.Now,i urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the financial house to your country, That is why I felt happy when I saw you because I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me invest this money wisely. I am ready to pay 30% of the total amount to you if you help us in this transaction and another 15% interest of Annual After Income to you, for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over.
