Compliments! I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met before but based on what I am going through now, I feel quite safe to deal with you in this regard though this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, however, I choose to reach you through this source as it still remains the fastest medium of Communication.
My name is Dora from Johannesburg. I am 18 years old and the only child of my parent. My mother died five (5) years ago while my father was murdered two (2) months ago by his step brothers who were my uncles due to disputes on family assets and properties. My father was the only son of his mother and his father married two wife's while the other woman has eight (8) children.
My father was the first born of the family and has a lot of responsibilities over the family assets and properties but the step brothers, my uncles are not happy about that and they poisoned him to dead in other to take over the family assets/properties alone. I had to run for my life because I know they would definitely want to kill me out of greed just the way they killed my father.
Presently, I am in a church for shelter as I have no one to run to. Before my father gave up the ghost, he intimated me over a fixed deposit of Ј5.5 Million British Pounds Sterling fixed with his bank in London. Please, I need your assistance to get this money transferred to any of your provided bank account in your country for my education and up-bringing as the money is too much for me to handle or manage for now as I am only 18.
I want you to be my guardian so that you can personally arrange for my trip to your country once the transfer is made to your provided bank account. I strongly believe you will be of immense assistance to accomodate this transaction but please you don't have to take undue advantage of my age to betray the trust I bestow on you. Remember the version of the bible that says, what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and loses his soul.
I want you to accept me like your own child and take good care of me until I grow up to be a woman. I am willing to offer you 20% of the fund for your role/assistance while the remaining 80% you will invest in your country and manage on my behalf until I am old enough to manager the investment. I would have love to speak with you on phone but I have no access to telephone for now and my only means of communication is through the internet.
May God touch your heart and use you to bring back happiness and joy to my life. I shall give you more details on the way forward as soon as I hear from you. Thank you for your time and may God bless you.

Subject: Re: Can You Be Of Help Kindly Respond
Thank you for your email response. May God bless you and your family.
Attached here are copies of my pictures so that you will know me. One
(1) copy is my personal and the other copy was in my school but I have
dropped out of school for now since the death of my father. I am very
delighted that you feel for me and want to restore happiness back to
my life after all the pains and sorrow that I am passing through.
As a matter of fact, I believe that you are truly a God sent to me and
may God bless you. I am presently accommodated in a Catholic Church
apartment here in Johannesburg, South Africa because my uncles have
taking over all my family belongings including my father's house. So,
i had to run for my dear life because i know they would want to kill
me just the same way they killed my father. I have made up my mind to
move on with my life elsewhere but not in Africa anymore because the
memories of my father's death keep coming back to me.
Please sir, it was for these reasons that i contacted you. I only
needed someone who is trustworthy and God fearing and I strongly
believe that you have all these qualities in you. I want you to take
and accept me as your own child and will not take undue advantage of
my age to betray my trust for you. Meanwhile, I have forwarded your
contact information to my family lawyer who is based in England. It is
his full responsibility to handle the process of the fund transfer to
any of your nominated bank account once the legal clearance are made
to your favour. He will contact you accordingly and i want you to feel
very free with him. He is a very good gentleman.Since my father is no
more, I am now accepting you as my guardian. My Lawyer will secure all
the necessary Legal clearance documents to your favour as my guardian
which will authenticate and empower you to administer over the £5.5
Million British Pounds Sterling on my behalf. Note that all the
necessary legal clearance documents covering this transaction to your
favour would be made available to you for your record purposes.
Once the transfer is made to any of your nominated bank account and
confirmed, then you will arrange for my trip to be with you in your
country so that I can further my education while you invest/manage the
fund on my behalf until I am through with my University education and
secure my master degree. It is after then that I can be able to manage
the investment. I am willing to offer you 30% of the £5.5 Million
British Pounds Sterling for your assistance while the remaining 70%
you will invest/manage on my behalf until I am old enough to manage
We may as well go into partnership based on agreement.I thank you for
your concern and awaits your response. Kindly let me know as soon as
you hear from my lawyer.
Miss Dora Adams
