After the burial of my father, my uncle conspired and sold my father's properties to one Chinese Expatriate and live nothing for me. One faithful morning, I opened my father's briefcase and found out the documents which he have deposited huge amount of money in one bank in Spain with my name as
the next of kin. I contacted the bank in Spain to transfer the money so that I can start a better life and take care of myself, but unfortunately, the officer of the Bank whom I contacted told me that my father's instruction to the bank was the money be release to me only when I am married or
present a trustee who will help me and invest the money overseas.
I have chosen to contact you after my prayers and I believe that you will not betray my trust. But rather take me as your own sister. Though you may wonder why I am so soon revealing myself to you without knowing you, well, I will say that my mind convinced me that you are the true person to
help me. More so, I will like to disclose much to you if you can help me to relocate to your country because my uncle have threaten to assassinate me. The amount is $8.4 Million and I have confirmed from the bank in Spain. You will also help me to place the money in a more profitable business
venture in your Country.
However, you will help by recommending a nice University in your country so that I can complete my studies. It is my intention to compensate you with 20% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my capital in your establishment. As soon as I receive your interest in helping
me, I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely. Please do keep this only to your self. I beg you not to disclose it till i come over because I am affraid of
my weaked uncle who has threatened to kill me.
Miss Annette Gozim Yak.
