How are you and the members of your family? I hope all are in good health. I’m Miss Tonia Edward the only child/daughter of my parent,
I am 19 years old girl. I lost my parent, and I have an inheritance fund from my late mother, My parents were very wealthy farmers and cocoa merchant when they were alive, After the death of my father, long ago, my mother was controlling his business until she was poisoned by her business associates which she suffered and died. Before the death of my mother, she secretly called me on her bed side and disclosed to me about the sum of Nine million Five hundred thousand U.S dollars she left in suspense account in one of the bank.
It was the money she intended to transfer overseas for investment before her sudden death She also instructed me that I should seek for a foreign partner in any country of my choice who will assist me transfer this money in overseas account where the money will be save and invested wisely, Because of the current problem I decided to transfer the money to abroad where it will be save and invested, therefore, I am crying and seeking for your kind assistance in the following ways:
(1) To provide a safe bank account into where the money will be transferred for investment.
(2) To serve as a guardian of this fund since I am only 19 years old.
(3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to secure a resident permit for me in your country.
I will offer you 10% of the total amount for your willingness to help me, please kindly response to my mail immediately with your full personal information,
Get back to me.
Miss Tonia Edward.
I’m not sure how I’m your “Friend”, but I am concerned about your plight.
Because things in the U.S. aren’t going to well with the current administration. I’d rather keep things on a cash basis. You say you’ll give me 10%. That sounds fair. I could use $950,000.
So, here is how it will work. E-mail me back with your bank account information. Then, simply have them place the $9.5 million in a plastic trash bag and leave it in the park by the green bench near the playground. Make sure they are all U.S. bills. Tell them to come alone. After I remove my 10%, I will deposit the rest of the cash in your bank account.
Oh, and don’t bother coming over here. Spend your money over there. You’ll just end up having the IRS take it from you here. Once they take it from you, our president will then loan it to his friend George Soros who will probably spend the money drilling for oil in your country anyway. So, just save yourself the trouble. (Oh, and you don’t need a guardian for your money since you are of a majority age. )
One final word…
Use your money to invest in an education. You need it.
