Dear Friend, I am interested in establishing and operating a very viable business as a means of investment abroad. I do not know too well on how this is done in your country, so I will need you to help me in this regard. My preference is any good profit yielding business and I would appreciate any viable ideas you could come up with. I will also need you to help me look for properties like homes and lands for sale as I am proposing to invest the sum of Twenty Million United States Dollars ($20,000,000.00 USD) for this. I do not know if you can and will be of help to me. For a brief on my personality; my name is Nova Scotia, an Englishman based in Russian Moscow. I am a retired Business man, formally into Oil and Gas business. I am 62 years of age, married with a wife and 4 lovely kids. I dropped my business because it wasn't producing profitable income. I have had so many problems with the Russian Authority just because I am a foreign man. My need for this business proposition and to acquire these properties is very urgent as I am planning to move out of this country with my family down to your country. I want you to also help in finding a good home where my family and I will live in. (Mini Estate) Please I expect your good and prompt reply so that we can proceed swiftly. I will need your phone and fax numbers for easier communication with you in case I am unable to access my emails. NOTE: PLEASE ONLY CONTACT ME ON THIS EMAIL: email@example.com Best Regards Nova Scotia.
