Compliment of the season.

With do respect. Having gone through your profile,
I am convinced and pleased to contact you for some
assistance and business relationship.

I am a widow, who live in NIGERIA. I have a daughter
who is the joy of my life. My late husband was a
loving, caring and hardworking businessman who died
unfortunately in an auto crash. Before the sudden death of my beloved husband and father of my
daughter, my late husband intended to establish a
business in the united states of America with the
sum of $15 million united states dollars,but
unfortunately he died before this proposed venture.

Following his death, his family members are telling
me that I am not entitled to his property(Assets and
money)because I am a woman and my offspring is a
female as well ,according to some barbaric
traditional laws here in Nigeria (Africa) which
doesn't permit a woman to inherit a man's property,
but I and my child will be catered for by the late
husband family who also will take over the management
of his business and other properties. The worst of all is that they want me according to the babaric tradition to get remarried to my late husband's younger brother which I refused completely. I am ready to die instead of allowing my brother-inlaw to see my nakedness.

Unfortunately to this wicked family members, the $15
million united states dollars which my late husband
intended to use in establishing a business in the
United States was deposited in a a security company abroad
unknown to his family .I and the lawyer is the only
ones aware of this money, so I have discussed this
matter with the lawyer that I want this money
personally and he agreed based on some compensation.

According to the lawyer, the best way to secure this
money in other that the family members do not know about it is to look for a sincere and trustworthy foreigner
outside Nigeria for safe-keeping, later it will be
used for business establishment with your advice and
assistance, which I will also come over to your

At this juncture, I and the lawyer needs your
sincere assistance in providing us with your complete names, mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, sothat the "Claim Documents" can be changed to your name as soon as I hear your positive
response. However, I and the lawyer has agreed to give you 20% of the money as a reward for your sincere assistance and the remaining 80% of the money will be for us(I and the lawyer). When the documents are changed to your name, they will be sent to you to enable you contact the security company for proper arrangement.


Thanks you and God Bless,
