Accept my apology for contacting you this way which was due to the urgency of my request I'm in a very precarious situation that warrants my talking very little till I confirm our business relationship. If its money please that'd be no problem, I just need to know if you are capable of handling large funds and you can be trusted. Presently I'm in the tight clutches of my native government who has amongst other things clamped my company and my freedom all in a bid to finance its reform programs in the past few years. I'm a building construction engineer and a gold merchant before. The internet for now is my only uncensored link to the outside world and I'd appreciate it if you take me very gravely.You'll be well remunerated for your effort and assistance. I would need your utmost confidentiality and complete honesty in the transfer of this funds.I would need to tell you that all required arrangements have been made for the transfer of this funds through a diplomatic service to your secured receiving address. However,shipment would commence 48hrs once I am in receipt of your details which includes your telephone and fax numbers,secured receiving address as well as your mobile if any. The diplomatic is not aware of the content as funds but the Luggages would be marked "Diplomatic Luggages" and it should be within the both of us until you receive the Luggages.They offer door to door delivery as p.o box is not acceptable.The said funds is total $US47.7Million all in 100 dollar bills,I would be willing to give you 25% while the rest would be invested till I can travel to meet with you. Can you handle this funds? Yours faithfully, Mr. Abu Idiris.
