Another Scam

Dearest Beloved,

I am happy to request for your assistance and also to go into business partnership with you, i believe that you will not betrayed my trust which i am going to lay on you.

I am Master. Dave Lahji, 24years old, am from Liberia and the only child of my parents MR. and MRS. LAHJI. I came from a Christian family. My late father was a highly reputable businessman and the owner of Nuitac investments.

Before his death, he took me out of the country to go and stay with his company lawyer in Senegal after telling me about the situation of things around him. Before then my mum passed away during child birth that was at the of 8 years in Liberia. I have been living with my late father's lawyer for two years now and my situation is not getting better and the people that killed my father took over his investments and my dad's lawyer never did anything about it.

I wrote you for one purpose, to help me secure my inheritance from my father. For safety reasons, this money will be moved to your account for safe keeping and after which we will talk about the investment opportunities which you will also be the one to handle it. This is the money my father saved from his sale of diamonds which was his major area of business.

The money in question was twelve million us dollar (12,000 000)usd. as of 2003 when i signed the documents as the next of kin on arrival in Senegal. I don't want you to take advantage of me, i your guidance and honesty. I promise to give you twenty-five percent of the total money(%25) once the whole thing is over.

I will be waiting to hear from you as soon as you receive this message of peace.

Sincerely yours.

Dave Lahji.
