I am Miss.Goodness Johnson,24 years old girl from Liberia , the only child of Late Fed Dr.Johnson Kamara( may his gentle soul in peace), who was killed by suspected hired assassins by his political opponents . Before his death , he was an astute politician and a successful businessman .

However , I was even more devastated , because of the maltreatment I'm receiving from my uncle who happens to be my only known blood relation alive . Immediately after my father's burial , he planned to take away all my Late Father's Treasury and properties from me,in fact in many occasions he had tried to rape me but I resisted him all through,the worse that happen was when he sent hired assassins to kill me .So , when all this molestation and humiliation became much to my bearing ,

I planed to escape to Europe but he restricted me . Luckily he did not discover where I kept my Father's File which contains important documents. So I decided to run to the United High Commissions for Refugee ( UNHCR ) camp in my country , but when I sensed that he would locate me their and kill me , I therefore pleaded to the UNHCR to facilitate my movement to their annex camp in another country for my safety , they acceded to my request and brought me to this Country Senegal , here I am presently seeking asylum in their commission camp .

I wish to contact you personally for a long term Business relationship and investment assistance in your Country. My Father secretly deposited the sum of US$5,700,000.00 ( Five Million,Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollar ) in one of the leading Banks ,in custody of my name as the next of kin. However, I shall forward you with the necessary information of the deposit on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund in your Country. As you will also help me in an investment, and I will like to complete my Studies, as I was in the School, before the death of my father .

It is my intention to compensate you with 20 % of the total Money ,for your help ,then the balance shall be my investment capital. This is the reason why I decided to contact you. Please all communications should be through this email address only for confidential purposes.
