Hello , 
I need you to read this email message carefully because it is very imperative.
I am contacting you foran Urgent Business Transaction and further explicit
investment information about your country.I am PRINCE FAYAD H.BOLKIAH, the
eldest son of PRINCE JEFRI BOLKIAH who was the former Finance Minister of
Brunei. Brunei Darussalam is a small country located in the northwest of the
island of Borneo and governed by His Majesty SHEIK HAJI HASSANAL BOLKIAH

I will save your time by not amplifying my extended Royal Family history which
has already been disseminated by the international media during the
controversial dispute that erupted between my father and his stepbrother, the
sultan of Brunei SHEIK HAJI HASSANAL BOLKIAH. As you may know from the
international media, the Sultan had accused my father of financial mismanagement
and impropriety of US$14.8 Billion. 

This was as a result of the Asian financial crisis which made my father company
Amedeo development Corporation(ADC) and government owned Brunei Investment
Agency(BIA) to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in office. PRINCE JEFRI
BOLKIAH was relieved of his post as Finance Minister of Brunei and was stripped
of his chairmanship post as head of the nation's international investment
arm, the Brunei Investment Agency in February 1998. The Agency controls 13
companies & Brunei's overseas assets. 

In July 1998, SHEIK HAJI HASSANAL BOLKIAH barred trading by Amedeo Development
Corporation when the world's biggest corporate debt of US$14.8 Billion came
to light. In September the 1998, the Sultan ordered an investigation of the BIA
by accountants KPMG after the Brunei government alleged that"large sums of
money" had been misappropriated to companies controlled by PRINCE JEFRI
BOLKIAH. The Sultan then asked the Bank of England to help track down an alleged
28 Billion British Pounds of state and family funds said to be
"missing" On the 02/10/1998 PRINCE JEFRI BOLKIAH flew from London in a
private jet and wasgoing to settle matters directly with SHEIK HAJI HASSANAL

PRINCE JEFRI drove straight to his seaside palace at Jerudong, about 10 miles
south of the capital, Bandar Seri Begawan. He was due to meet with officials of
the Amedeo Development Corporation and visit the sultan. After series of
meetings relations between the Royals appeared to deteriorate quickly.
However,my father was arrested, his Bank Accounts and private properties
including a crude oil export refinery & three large oil wells which were
later confiscated by the sultanate. 

Furthermore, during this unfortunate period i was advised to evacuate my
immediate family outside the sultanate to avoid further prosecution from the
sultan and his security operatives. Before I could do that I was placed under
house arrest by SHEIK HAJI HASSANAL BOLKIAH. You can visit the websites below
for a better understanding of the situation:- 

I have a Palm V hand-held computer from which I am sending you this mail.
Before my arrest, I went ahead to dispatch the sum of US$1 Billion in cash under
special arrangement into the custody of different Offshore Banks and Private
security and Trustee companies for safe keeping abroad.  The money where split
and kept in the following countries in this proportion: US$500 Million is
indifferent offshore Bank accounts while the rest are with Private Deposit &
Trustee companies with:- US$50 Million is in England, US$100 Million is in
Spain,US$100 Million is in Arabia, 

US$80 Million is in United Arab Emirate and the balance US$170 Millions in
Malaysia.I am unable to reach my friends & associates whom would have
provided all the much needed moral and financial assistance i require to release
the funds because my private/personal diary was seized by my uncle SHEIK HAJI
HASSANAL BOLKIAH who also happens to be the Sultan of Brunei.Hence, I seek your
good will & assistance to receive and invest these funds into profitable
investment in your country to facilitate future survival for my family abroad. I
will compensate adequately for your strong cooperation.I am counting on your
absolute confidentiality and transparency while looking forward to your prompt
reply towards a  swift conclusion of this business transaction. You can include
your direct Mobile phone number. My alternative email address is below:
