Best wishes of the day to you,i got your name and email from the internet, first a brief introduction of myself, I am Master Kunle Adams,a 17 year old son of late Engr.and Mrs.Adams.
My father was a highly reputable business magnate (a timber merchant) who operated in London during his days, It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously just some few days after getting back from one of his numerous business trips abroad year 9th August 2007. Although,his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of mine who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth!.
My mother died when I was just 11 years old,and ever since my father had raised me.Before his death (on the 30th of July the same year to be precise,which was my (17th year birthday),i went to see him at the hospital he was admitted and we talked a lot.He told me he had $8.3million U.S. DOLLARS (Eight million,three hundred thousand dollars) deposited in a Safe-keeping Security Company here,He also told me he had changed the Beneficiary's name to mine as his only child,as well as the next of kin.I presume it was because of his wealth he was poisoned by maybe one of his business associates (the autopsy results-poisoning) I have not told anybody ever since after the funeral.I have been very scared.Because of my age,i thought to seek a foreigner who can receive this money abroad to be used for investment purposes (according to my father's wish).I do not want to discuss this with my uncle.I am a bit scared of telling him,although right now,i still live under his roof.I think it is
best i further my university edu
I want you to assist me retrieve this money from the Security company here (I will submit all the documents required to (them that are in my possession) you will stand as a friend to the family (i will confirm it to them if asked) When you receive the money,please you will use part of it for investment purposes (you will need to inform me what the best investment could be,if you don't mind),i have suffered a lot of setbacks as a result of incessant political crisis here,one can hardly even invest here due to security and safety.The death of my father has brought serious sorrow to my life.He was my best friend and i really talk to him a lot.I will also need you to assist me in furthering my education,when you receive the money.I can check for universities online (I have completed my secondary education) and you will use some of the money for my tuition and boarding or you can advise me on the school to attend.But tt is very important i complete my education.
Please,consider this and get back to me as soon as you can,i will like you to send your private cell phone number (or if you prefer we communicate via email),that is okay by me.I check my mail from the local library here).If you can help me receive these funds,i will be very happy.You can email me:email@example.com i will be happy to give you the company's information where you can contact them.
Thank you in advance,
