urgent Dear,Sir/Madam Pardon me if I have offended you by contacting you for such a big transaction through an ordinary letter which may give room for apprehension in today's world. However, I am inclined to explain this transaction to you on face to face meeting but I could not do this Because of the situation in the world today and not being sure of your reaction. I am Mr.Joe Smith,a consultant and broker from United Kingdom. I am currently in Netherlands because we are in the process of setting up an office here. I was hired by a Japanese business man to broker an investment deal between himself and one oil company in Venezuela. This deal was executed in January 1999 and matured for Termination in 2001. The amount involved is US$50,200,000.00. On maturity, the Japanese businessman and the oil firm decided to terminate the investment in cash to Avoid payment of investment tax which amounted to several millions of U.S dollars to the America internal revenue service (IRS). A special arrangement was made between a top Japanese banker working with Japanese bank in New York, the oil company and the businessman to terminate the investment in cash payment under a fictitious name with an arrangement to change it latter with a power of attorney which they prepared and handed over to the top banker. I was directly involved, well paid and mandated to organize and carry out the deal. All the cash was withdrawn in august 2001 and transported to Europe by direct bank vault to vault delivering to a private Security storage in Europe for safe keeping pending the Collection. The real content of the boxes were not declared to the Security storage as it was delivered personal family treasure and diamonds. Mr. Masaya Kasari the New York business man was planning to go to Europe by mid of November 2001 with me for the collection when the unexpected happened in September 11th attack on the twin tower which claim his life and that of the top banker. This left me confused as I have not yet handed over the deposit details to the owner and the power of attorney prepared for the change which was signed was still with the banker in his office which was also lost. It was agreed with the storage that the boxes would be collected on or before 12 months from the date of delivery. Since due date the Security storage manager has been contacting me to bring or tell the owner to come over for collection. My friend, since then I have been looking for any reliable person to collect these Funds under Special and well negotiated arrangement until I got your personal contact. All the needed secret code and identification and collection are all with me.Be rest assured that this transaction has been well organized, 100% safe, legal, risk free and should be kept very confidential.
