I could not be able to open an account in my name for such funds because my late father was deposited the money in suspence account in his name
1.)Your father already put this money into an account
2.)The account owner is your father
but I have deposited documentations issued him in the bank by the day he made the deposit and the money was deposited in my name as the next of kin,
3.)The account owner is you - in opposite to 2.)
4.)The bank knows, that you are the next of kin
I mean as the only son thats is the reason why I need your assistance most because I can not take care of this whole things so please if you can be able to come down here in abidjan to withness everything by your self so that I will travel back with you in your country to starts a new life againThat is:
5.)You are able to write emails to a complete stranger
6.)You are not able to go into the bank, say „Hello, this may come to you as a surprise, but I am the next of kin of my father, please pray over it and give me his money.“
I think my arrival to abidjan won't make it any better.

Dear David Johnson,
said the bank said before I can have acces to the funds I need to provide an account were the money will be deposited first before anyorder thing will be taken placeWhy do you not just make the „suspend account“ a „permanent account“ ? Why has it to be MY account?
I have to ask this again: Are you a child? Why can't you create an account yourself?
so you need to come down here to do everything by yourself, please inform of your arrival here in abidjan so that I can be able to wait you at the international airport on that dayWhy have I to come to Abidjan? And please, dont tell me in that tone, what I „have to“. Do you have any idea, what it costs me to fly to Africa? I will need weeks, to prepare such a travel! Visum, medical treatments, and so on. This is not a matter of haste, you know!
as the bank inform me we need to apoint an international attorney who will help to do the necessary things that needed on your behalf,What the hell is an "international attorney", and why won't an, lets say ivorycoastian attorney, not work as well?
I hope you will understand me very wellNo. I'm sorry.
and I want a positive answer from you in your next response mailAs I wrote earlier in this letter: Don't ever tell me, what I MUST do!
and God bless you abundantely.Thank you.

Again , the bank said to me to engage the service of a lawyer who will stand on my behalf to claim the fund beacuse there are some legal document that the bank ask me to provide.After due considration and more inquiry l met with the lawyer today and l explain everything to him as regards to this transaction and the nature of the deposit,the lawyer agreed to render his service to us we agreed that his service charge will be paid to him once you receive the money in your account . I made him to know that l will like my inherited money in the bank to be transfer to your account,he ask me to give you his contact so that you can reach him for more clearification since he is a lawyer here .
In this case brother l will like you to feel free and contact the lawyer and ask him exactly on what to do for the fund to be transferred to your account without any delay .Please send to me your telephone and fax number and l can be reach with this number +225 07 89 19 52 .please call me as you receive this massage .
Less l forget l am not a child ,l am 22 years old and l am a christian. Secondly , why l can not open an account is due to my age ,in this country and there law ,l can not oprate account of my own as l am not up to 23 years which is there adult age here and l dont want the money to be invest here in Africa as my father instructed me on his dieying bed, so this is why l need the money to be transferred to your account in your country so that you can invest it for me while l proceed for my education once l arrive to your country .Actualy we will sign agreement once the lawyer commence his service.

Dear Mr Johnson,
Again , the bank said to me to engage the service of a lawyer who will stand on my behalf to claim the fund beacuse there are some legal document that the bank ask me to provide.This might not be a clever advice by your bank. As far as I know, most lawyers are greedy thiefs and scumbags. Be careful with that lawyer!
After due considration and more inquiry l met with the lawyer today and l explain everything to him as regards to this transaction and the nature of the deposit,Oops, too late.
His contact:I am not sure, if I should contact him, since it is too late now, he already knows the nature of our transaction.
In this case brother l will like you to feel free and contact the lawyer and ask him exactly on what to do for the fund to be transferred to your account without any delay. Please send to me your telephone and fax number and l can be reach with this number +225 07 89 19 52. please call me as you receive this massage.I thought I have mentioned it before: The easyest way of communication is email. You have to understand, that I am deaf and I can not talk to anybody. Further I do not possess a fax-machine. We are living in the 21st century, and eMail is the medium for correspondence nowadays.
Less l forget l am not a child ,l am 22 years old and l am a christian. Secondly , why l can not open an account is due to my age ,in this country and there law ,l can not oprate account of my own as l am not up to 23 years which is there adult age hereHere is an advice: If you wait just one year, you will be of adult age in this country. That will safe you the $$2,625,000.00$$, you wanted to give away to me and it will keep the lawyer out of your money. (You see, that you can not trust him, since he had not mentioned this fact to you!)
and l dont want the money to be invest here in Africa as my father instructed me on his dieying bed, so this is why l need the money to be transferred to your account in your country so that you can invest it for meLook, Mr. Johnson: the money is safe where it is now since 2001! Don't spoil your future by giving it away, so close before your 23th birthday!
while l proceed for my education once l arrive to your country.What is your education? May be you cannot proceed with it in my country! I am sure, that some of the ivorycoastian professions are hard to find here in germany.
Actualy we will sign agreement once the lawyer commence his service.I do not have any problem signing any agreement you want me to, but remember my advice, to keep the lawyers out of this transaction!
l await your urget attention to this mail,and please contact the lawyer for more clearification.Once again: better not! I am an retired officer of the german army and often I get angry, when I have to deal with people I don't like.
N/B Henceforth brother , all our corespondence should be on this new email address .What new email address? You have not included it! And why, for god's sake?

Dear brother Erich, ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = „urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office“ ( An insult? A secret message? )
In this case , what do we do to obtain the requierd documents that the bank needed to process the transfer .Do you have any solution for it ?please advise me on what to do .
I suggest you contact the bank your self and ask them what you are to do for the fund to be transfered to your account, as stated is the contact of the bank.
BANK NAME:Bank of Africa
Kindly contact the bank and ask them as mentoin above,for your information the name of my father is Mr.Collins Johnson the depositor and my name Master David Johnson the next of kin to the fund .The total amount is $17.5million .
Get back to me sir after your confirmation .

Dear david johnson,
as you suggested that we should forget the assistance of a lawyer for the momentThis is not correct! I suggested that you should forget the lawyer forever!
due to your personnal veiw,My „personnal veiw“ doesn't matter! It is your money and your life that you are playing with!
but l beleive that the lawyer will make things easier for us.This beleiving will make you a very lonesome man someday!
The lawyer is an advance man of 47years with (4)children's, so l beleive he will not be hamfull to us .Joseph Goebbels, the former propagandaminister of germany, was an advanced man of 60years with (7)children's, but l beleive he was a hamfull to many people.
In this case , what do we do to obtain the requierd documents that the bank needed to process the transfer .Do you have any solution for it ?please advise me on what to do .Go back to my last letter. Here you find my advice: just wait one year, until you are 23years old, and every problem will vanish without further delay.
I suggest you contact the bank your self and ask them what you are to do for the fund to be transfered to your account, as stated is the contact of the bank.If I would contact the bank out of the blue, they will laugh and nominate me to the „White-Twit-of-the-Month-Award“ I can not handle an account, that belongs to your father!
If you need any advice, get back to me, I enjoy helping you!
4 AUG 2003
Dear Brother Erich,
I will not wait until l am 23 before the transfer will be done,the fund in question can be transfered to your account without l opening an account in my name .the bank advise that an Affidavit of changing of beneficairy has to be effect at High Court of Federal republic of Cot D' Ivoire in your name as my legal account beneficairy , with this ,the bank will start processing for the transfer in your favour.
Moreover, the bank made it clear to me that the fund was deposited under the bank ' volt's' by my late father before his death and the nomal process has to followed before the fund can be transferred to any designated account .
As regards to the issue of the lawyer , the lawyer will only work on the legal documentation papers that the bank might require and l strongly beleive that he will not be a hindrance to this transaction beacuse the fund is legal and l have every legal documents that covers the fund in my care .If you suggest we should forget the assistance of the lawyer,then brother l suggest you visit me here in Abidjan , so that we will go to the bank together for the claim of the fund .
Therefore brother,l assured you that this fund is not a stolen fund nor drug related so feel free to render your assistance to me if it is your mind .
Please get back to me as you receive this mail to enable me know my status.
Yours Brother in the Lord

Dear David Johnson
„I will not wait until l am 23 before the transfer will be done“This could be a big mistake! You are going into trouble with lawyers and your bank, just only because you lost your patience! Stay cool and wait - this is the best advice I can give you! When will be your 23th birthday? Next month? in six months?
„Therefore brother,l assured you that this fund is not a stolen fund nor drug related so feel free to render your assistance to me if it is your mind.“From which source is that money? You said that your father was a minister. $17,500,000.00 is a lot of money even for a minister.
