Hi. We are Portfolio Managers for
Dr Manouchehr Farhangi, an Iranian businessman and philanthropist who was
murdered on March 20th, 2008 in La Moraleja, Spain. Dr Farhangi made a number of
Investments in London which has been under our supervision
until his death. Since April 2008, we have handed over many of his assets to
His family through the Embassy of Iran except for the sum of 58 million Pounds
which he invested with British Petroleum and which the deceased gave us a
written authority to donate to Orphanage Homes in event of his absence. The
Investors Certificate Issued to Dr Farhangi by the British Petroleum (B.P) is
presently in our custody. We need a reliable Individual who we would
present to BP as a representative of an Orphanage Home to receive the fund. Due
to the impact of the recession on our company, we have decided to share 80% of
the fund with you while we release 20% to an Orphanage Home in your Country. If
interested, please reply to this message with your full contact details.
