Jose Estrada 1 Polk Steet. North Green Hills Subdividion Metro-Manila Philippines. Dear Sir, I wish to request your assistance in a financial transaction. I came to know of you via the Global Database Center (G.D.C.), hence I am making this contact.Since I can not determine if this email is still functional and also your willingness,hence I have kept this proposal brief.I am by this letter soliciting a partnership relationship, so as to have you as a representative and manager of investment funds,that I wish to invest in Manufacturing and Real Estate Management in your country. I am Jose Estrada, the son of Mr. Joseph Ejercito Estrada, the former President of Philippines who was ousted on January 20, 2001. My father was pushed out of office and charged with corruption and embezzlement of $ 4. Billion. He was wrongly sentenced to reclusion perpetual life in prison, but fortunately He was pardoned on October 25th 2007. We thank God that he has being finally released, though still under house arrest in the sense of conditions of the freedom granted by President Gloria Arroyo. During my father’s administration as President of Philippines, we realized some reasonable amount of money, precisely $18,000,000 Million USD from various deals that we successfully executed. I have plans to invest this money for my children’s future on real estate and industrial production. The funds are presently with a financial institution out side Philippines. I am contacting you because I want you to deal with the financial institution and receive the funds into your account, to be invested in business. We can not invest the funds back here in Philippines for security reasons. When I receive your positive response I will furnish you with more details including my contact details. Regards Jose Estrada. PLEASE REPLY TO :- email@example.com
