I am Prince Fayad Musa Bolkiah, the eldest son of Prince
Jefri Bolkiah,
former Finance Minister of Brunei , the oil-rich sultanate
on the Gulf
Island of Borneo. I will save your time by not amplifying
my extended royal
family history, which has already been disseminated by the
media during the controversial dispute that erupted between
my father and
his stepbrother, the sultan of Brunei Sheik Muda 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 that
made my fathers
company Amedeo Development Company and government owned
Brunei Investment
Company to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in
office. However my
father was kept under house arrest, his bank accounts and
private properties
including a crude oil export refinery were later
confiscated by the

Furthermore during this unfortunate period, I was advised
to evacuate my
immediate family out of the sultanate to avoid further
prosecution from the
sultan, but before I could, I was placed under house arrest
with no access
to phone, but I have a laptop which I use to communicate.

However, before my arrest, I dispatched the sum of four
hundred, twenty
million United States dollars (US$420,000,000.00) valued
private safety
deposit with the assistance of a foreign diplomat who
resides in Europe. The
funds have now been deposited as safety deposit / family
valuables into
different private security and trust company for safe
keeping in Europe.

The funds (safety deposit) was split and kept in the
following countries in
this proportion: $170 million in Spain , $190 million in
France and $60
million in Holland . I kindly require your assistance as a
designate / foreign partner to claim and invest these funds
into real
estate/properties to guarantee the future of my family,
beginning with that
in Holland. If you are prepared to render your sincere
assistance, do not
fail to contact me immediately to furnish you with details
of this proposal.

For your assistance, you will receive 45% of each funds
claimed and another
5% will be set aside to defray any expenses that maybe
incurred during

Please I count on your absolute confidentiality,
transparency and trust
while looking forward to your prompt response towards a
swift conclusion of
this business transaction through my email address as thus:

Thank you & May Allah's blessing dwell upon you.

Yours sincerely,

Prince Fayad Bolkiah.
