Good morning to you, We want to invest in your region! First of all, I would like to apologize for sending such significant business proposal through this means (internet). You have to agree with me that many things have gone awful with the use of internet by some villains out there, and as a result of such act, many people are scared to accept business proposal through the internet. Meanwhile, I want to assure you that this proposal is not connected with any deceptive intent or evil proceed. I am a fully registered lawyer here in the UK, We are looking for a smart way to invest some money in your region. Over the last years I have heard lots of positive things about your country, about its economical development and the stable political system. I have a feeling that in your country there should be good ways to get higher rates of return. I am contacting you in the high opinion of my client, Mr. Albert Jack Stanley, former KBR Inc. Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who along with my colleague Jeffrey Tesler were sentenced to 2 years in prison, this came after three years they pleaded guilty to orchestrating over $180 million in bribes to Nigerian top government officials, the said bribe came as a result of their compliance to bid for $6 billion in contracts to build LNG trains on Nigeria's Bonny Island. Read more about Mr. Albert: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-kbr-bribery-idUSTRE81M1NX20120223 During the contract meeting in Nigeria, Mr. Albert had money deposited in one of the Nigerian banks, but due to his long confinement, Mr. Albert was unable to demand for a refund, but as things stand now, Mr. Albert will not be able to present himself before the bank to claim the funds due to his current position as an ex convict, and some health related problems.
