Dear Friend,

I am Prince Fayad Bolkiah, the eldest son of Prince Jefri Bolkiah, former
Finance Minister of Brunei, the tiny oil-rich sultanate on the Gulf Island
of Borneo.
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 Prince Fayad Bolkiah , father
and his stepbrother, the sultan of Brunei Sheik Muda 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 that made my fathers
company Amedeo Development Company and government owned Brunei Investment 
Company to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in office. However my
Prince Fayad Bolkiah , father was kept under house arrest, his bank accounts

and private properties including a crude oil export refinery were later
confiscated by the sultanate.

Furthermore during this unfortunate period, I Prince Fayad Bolkiah was
advised to evacuate my immediate family outside the sultanate to avoid
further prosecution
from the sultan and his security operatives, but before I could do that I
was placed under house arrest after being beaten by the Sultans security men
and I had no 
access to phone, but I have a laptop from which I am sending you this mail.
Some of the guards here are still loyal to me.

Before my Incaceration, I Prince Fayad Bolkiah went ahead to dispatch the
sum of Four hundred and twenty Million United States Dollars
(US$420,000,000.00) in cash 
with the assistance of a foreign diplomat who now resides in Europe.The
money has now been deposited as valuables into different private security
and trust company for 
safe keeping abroad. The money was split and kept in the following
countries in this proportion: US$50 Million is in London, US$160 Million is
in Dubai, US$40 Million is 
in the Netherlands, and $170 Million in Canada and then $60million in

Please if you know you can assist in claiming and investing it in real
estate/property to guarantee the future survival of my family,

information of the security company in Europe and other parts of 
the world where the funds are deposited. For your assistance i will
