Dear Friend,
 
My Name is Stacy. M 19 years old female  born in America by Egyptian parents. Presently i reside in Ghana just because of the recent crisis in Egypt. I found your contact on the Internet during my frantic search for a reliable, confidant and partner who can help me to claim my inheritance since i have lost my family in Egypt, and I decided to contact you, because I believe you are a reputable person and I feel You can help me over this confidential matter.
 
My father was one of the special advisers to Ex-President Mubarak Muhammad Hosni, my father and mother was shot dead after the night Mubarak Muhammad Hosni left office as the Egyptian President. After my fathers death, i had no choice than to run away from Egypt to a nearby country Ghana. Before my father died he deposited the sum of $45,800,000.00usd with a security finance company in Accra Ghana and as the only child of my parents all the necessary documents was place in my name. Therefore i need your help to claim this fortune as a foreigner, if you can help me i shall give you 20% off the fortune which i will disclose to you when you contact me back and if interested.
 
I am looking for somebody that is capable and willing to help me to process the claim of the money from the security company as my foreign beneficiary and partner to my late father's funds because presently am passing through difficulties where i live as I am still considered a minor and can not lay claims to this funds by my self alone. This is how the revolution in the Middle East as affected my life and I am just getting over the trauma of loosing my parents right before my very eyes. So I  have decided to pick up the pieces and move on with my life.
