Dear Friend, Don't see this message as one of those internet jokes/scam messages, My name is Mr. Joe Zhulen, a business man from Hong Kong. I have some funds of mine at the tune of $20,000,000 (twenty Million Dollars) and I will want to transfer $3,000,000.00(three Million US Dollars) to your account for investment purposes in the real estate business. 25% of the said funds will be allocated to you for your assistance,You will not spend any single money from your pocket to see to the end of this transaction, since the charges to acquire the covering documents of the said funds will be wired to your Business, Home or Personal Equity Line of Credit Account which you will need to provide to taste your sincerity not to sit on the funds. This transaction is 100% legal and above board, moreover I had to be very careful about the scams going on all over the world before contacting you since I do not want to be a victim. I sincerely hope you have the said BUSINESS/HOME or PERSONAL EQUITY LINE OF CREDIT ACCOUNT and do keep this transaction confidential within yourself so that we can both achieve our aims. Do reply if interested for me to give more information and how the transfer will be effected. Best Regards, Mr. Douglas Zhulen +86-13045846805 firstname.lastname@example.org
