My Dear Friend,

My name is Solomon Zubair. lam from Uzbekistan(part of the defunct Soviet Union) and a devoted Christian. On September 3 of year 2004 to be precise, l got a job as the personal assistant(PA) to Sheikh Youssef Alli Abdallah, a powerful and very rich and prominent Lebanese businessman based in Tyre-Lebanon. During the recent clash between Hezbollah Militants and Israel, my boss was the agent used by Syria and Iran to finance the Militants activities in Southern Lebanon.

On August 16, 2006 at exactly 5.00am, my boss called me and sent me on an urgent message to his factory located at the outskirts of Tyre to bring some important items for him. On getting back from the factory, l discovered that his mansion has been reduced to rubbles as a result of Israeli air bombardment. l had to assist the lnternational Red Cross to identify his body, that of his wife, his four children and a female househelp.

l immediately went back to his vault in the factory and moved the remaining boxes containing several millions of dollars to my basement apartment safe from lsraeli air raids.

Now that the siege on Lebanon is over after last weeks withdrawal of the remaining Israeli troops from the border in Southern Lebanon, lam contemplating leaving the Country. Since l have a valid EU Visa, lam seriously thinking of migrating to Europe. l need somebody in the Western World who is good in Investment that could advise me on possible areas that l could invest the funds profitaby, and if he/she could infact take possession of the funds and invest it on my behalf. lam a nuclear physicist by qualification and training and have no knowledge of business. lf you agree to assist me, l will give you 20% of the entire thing, and in addition, l will give you 20% of the returns from the lnvestments on a yearly basis.

While l thank you for your consideration, l await your urgent response. l will not contact anyone else until you have confirmed to me lack of interest on your part or that you are incapable of handling the transaction. You can contact me on my private Email address;

Yours Sincerely
