Before the death of my father on January 16th 2008 in a private hospital in Bulgaria .

He secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has the some very good amount of funds he deposited in his fixed escrow account in one of the leading offshore banks in Europe that he used my name as his only daughter for the next of Kin in depositing of the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth he has acquired, that was why he was poisoned by his business associates. That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate management or hotel management.

I have since left Sofia Bulgaria and I am presently based in Madrid Spain, I am honorably seeking your assistance in the following ways :( 1) to provide a good bank account into which this money would be transferred into please note that its not a must that it should be your existing account (2) To help me invest the funds in any of the following sectors: real estate, mining, transportation, farming or Hotel management.

More so, I am ready to facilitate and give you full access to the funds once I see you are transparent and genuine to handle any business that you feel is capable of generating 10% Annual Return on Investment (AROI) apart from the ones I suggested .
