I know this message I have sent to you has nothing to do with you, and mostly I understand the fact you’ve been receiving a lot of email proposing different business, I would have prefered to call you directly on telephone or write you a letter because the internet is not secured, you might link this to be one of those junk emails which Africans spread all over the internet, but I guarantee you this is not a scam or junk message, this is for real. I am a lawyer by name Ahmed A., based in the U.A.E, I want us to do something together which you will definitely profit from. Let me give you a little idea, I have a client a woman who is presently living and hiding here in the U.A.E, she came to the U.A.E with over $25 Million United States Dollars which she stole from her country's Government. Her Government gave her contract to execute and gave her $30 Million United States Dollars for it but she refused to execute the contract instead she ran to the U.A.E, I even assited her in bringing the whole funds into the U.A.E without knowing she was running away, she has been here for three years now. I am the person keeping her here in the U.A.E which nobody knows about. I am her lawyer and the whole funds is under my supervision. My client now wants to invest the funds in buying properties anywhere in the world, she even wants to buy a fishing trowler or properties even if it un-completed like houses, hotels, industrial buildings. The most important is that she really wants her money to be invested in any good business anywhere in the world which she must surely profit from but she will not want to appear or show her self to anybody, she said everything must be done through me her lawyer because if her Goverment finds out about her, they will look for her and confiscate all the funds. The reason why I contacting you is that I want to present you as the agent who can assist us invest about $10 Million United States Dollars or more and give her good profitable returns. She asked me to find a trustworthy person who would not expose her but invest the money rightfully. But this is what I want us to do, I will present you to her as the agent who I trust and who I have 100% believe then she will ask me to release the funds maybe $10 Million United States Dollars or more to you since I have trust and confidence in you. The plan is, I will introduce you to her, she will ask me to do all my verifications about you, I will tell her everything is okay that you are the person investing for my other clients, she will give me the go-ahead to release funds. For now she wants to invest $10 Million United States Dollars then other funds will be for the purchasing of properties and the fishing boat. The deal is I have to make money out of this woman because if you ask her for assistance she will never give, this is the only way I believe I can safeguard some money for myself. I will introduce you, tell you what to tell her then she'll come back to me for verification which I will approve then she will ask me to release funds. When the funds $10 Million United States Dollars is released to you, we will share it 50/50. If you'll follow my instructions I assure you under three days we will get this funds, She is really on my neck to get a secret investor and I have to introduce someone to her this week. Do not have any fears or worries, Every information's I will give her about you will be false so they will never be any trace. If you accept this, I will want you to reply me and give me a direct phone number then I will give you other informations on how to start, I am her lawyer and by your acceptance we will proceed but the most important thing is the confidentiality of this proposal, This should be kept as a top secret. I want you to understand that it is not a must for you to appear in person for us to do this transaction, we can still operate without your presense here, It is what I tell her she will believe. She have 100% trust on me, I'm like her back-bone but on the other side if it is what you can come in person to Dubai, we will finish the transaction within two days. My anger for this woman is that I have assisted her so much in life but whenever I'm in need she gives no concern, I lost a friend because of a little money which she refused to lend me to save life. The worst thing is that I assisted her in bringing the funds into the U.A.E and she did not give me a penny for my assistance, she always sponsor her friends who wants to steal money from their Government the same way she did, she has never done anything good with the money, she is just wasting all the funds on rubbish so it is better let's get some off her and utilize it very well, I am family man. Please keep it very confidential, you can get back to me if you are interested. I await to hear from you. Barrister Ahmed (esq)
