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.
