    I am writing to seek your partnership in the investment of my
    inheritance fund USD$17.5M from my late father who died mysteriously
    last Dec.
    It was very evident that he was poisoned to death. In my culture, when
    man dies, if he does not have a male child, the brothers shares his
    property leaving both the wife and the daughters empty handed including
    the house they live in. This is the exact case with me as I am the only
    daughter of my father. I lost my mother when I was barely a year old
    my father refused to re-marry another wife because he felt solely
    responsible for my mother's death. This is so because he concentrated
    on his businesses that he rarely pays attention to domestic affairs. He
    was always travelling taking care of his businesses that he did not
    notice when my mother took ill. He thought it was a minor illness and
    ignorant of this. My mother on her own resorted to self-medication. It
    was not until the illness degenerated that my father took my mother to
    hospital where she was diagnosed to find out that hypatitis had eaten
    deep into her blood stream. She didn't last long before she died. This
    happened when I was barely a year old. Based on this, my father could
    not forgive himself easily because of it and said he was responsible
    her death as he could have saved her if only he had paid attention to
    the things at home rather than concentrating much on his businesses.

    Despite all entreaties by friends and relatives, he refused to remarry
    but ensured that I had everything that I wanted. It was as a result of
    this that yhe made me the next of kin to his fund deposit with the bank
    and stated that in the event of any eventuality, I should have a direct
    access to the fund only when I am 24 years of age otherwise, I should
    have a guardian/partner intercede on my behalf for the release of the
    funds to me. Unfortunately, he died late last year and I am 21 years of
    age currently. This is why I have contacted you to serve as a guardian
    to me and as my foreign partner for the investment of the fund overseas
    My uncles does not know about the fund because they had already taken
    my father's houses and other properties because I am a girl and they
    said I do not have rights for any property. They have requested to have
    father's bank papers but I simply told them that I do not know where he
    kept them. The younger brother took the house in the village while the
    houses in the town were sold out they shared the proceed they got from
    the sale. Right now, I am with a friend of mine and do sincerely want
    to travel out of my country. This can only happen when I have secured
    the release and transfer of the funds in the bank. This why it is
    important that we have a plan on the type of lucrative business that we
    invest the funds on.

    I had at various times had discussions with the director of
    international remittance unit of the bank where my father deposited the
    funds and
    I was assured that once, I have someone who would be willing to receive
    the funds on my behalf, they shall commence all proceedings to effect
    the release and transfer of the funds into the person's designated
    account. Now, that you have signified your interest to partner with me,
    would only be very necessary if you contact the bank and request for
    release and transfer of my inheritance fund into your nominated account
    for the purpose of investment and to further have me come over to your
    country to continue with my studies.

    I shall be giving you the bank's contact details as soon as I hear back
    from you so that you will go ahead and contact the bank.

    Talk to you the more.

    They gain money. Despite all the publicity about these scams there are still enough people who fall for it to provide a nice income for the scammers.

    Yep, there are a lot of gullible people out there. Plus some of these fairy tales are pretty good. The above one is total crap though. But I have seen some really good ones.
