Dear,Good day.

I know that this mail might be a surpriseing to you but do consider it as an
emergency. In a nut shell, My name Nwinyer Williams, from the republic of
Sierria-Leone in west Africa. The only child of late Dr.Solomon Williams, I am
looking for someone who can take me as a child or friend I promise to be obidient to
you and I will bring happiness to your life,My late father was the managing director
of Rainbow Gold and Diamond company in (KENEMA)Sierra-Leone.But he was poisoned to
death alongside with my mother by his business associate, On one of their outing to
discuss a business deal in oversea,


However, after their death I managed to stay alone and when the war broke out in my
country. I escape to near by village here,with every important files of my father.He
has the sum of (US$15.2M)Fifteene million two hundred thousand U.S Dollars only.
This amount was deposited by my late father in one of the leading security company,
Presently, I am saddled with the problem of securing a trust worthy foriegn
personality to help me. I will map out 15% for you.and i will mapped out 10% for any
miscellaneous expenses that you may incur during the transferring of the money over
to your country (1) you will Stand on my behalf as the beneficiary for the claim of
the inheritance from the company since the management of the company adviced that I
should solicit for an individual or corporate organization to claim the deposit for
me as they cannot release it directly to me due to my status right now.

(2)you will Help me secure my travelling documents to meet you as soon as my money

Most probably it's a Nigerian Scam... Those who REALLY fall for such scams, most lost their money and the worst-off were either killed, or went missing...
