Dear Friend, I am interested in establishing and operating a very viable business as a means of investment abroad. I do not know too well on how this is done in your country, So I will need you to help me in this regard. My preference is any good profit yielding businesss and I would appreciate any viable ideas you could come up with. I will also need you to help me look for properties like homes and lands for sale as I am proposing to invest the sum of Twenty Five Million United States Dollars ($25,000,000 USD) for this. I do not know if you can and will be of help to me. For a brief on my personality; My name is Elder David Brooks, a zimbabwian born British. I am a retired Business man formally into private Shipping Business. I am 62 years of age, married with a wife and 4 lovely kids. I dropped my Shipping business because it wasn't producing profitable income. Above all the Goverment is too inquisitive with a lot of political enemies. My need for this business proposition and to acquire these properties is very urgent as I am planing to move out of this country with my family down to your country. I want you to also help in finding a good home where my family and I will live in. ( Mini Estate ) Please I expect your good and prompt reply so that we can proceed swiftly. Best Regards, Elder David Brooks.
