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 

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 

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 BOLKIAH. 

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
