Dear Friend,
I am contacting you for an urgent assistance tomobilize a business transaction and
further explicit investment information about yourcountry from my attorney in Holland, who has been of great assistance to my family since our departure from
Brunei due to the human right abuses in my country. 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. 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 step-brother, 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 a huge amount of money. This was as a result of the Asian financial crisis that made my father's company Amedeo
Development Company and government owned Brunei Investment Company to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in office. However my 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 was advised to evacuate my immediatefamily 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 by the Sultan and have no access to a phone but I have a Palm hand-held computer from which I am sending you this mail.Some of the guard here are still loyal to me, so they would be my contact with you if there is any document I need to send to you to enable you collect a certain amount of money fully secured in an undisclosed location in Asia. Your role is to act as my foreign partner in receiving this money on my behalf. Due to my restricted movement, I will recommend a representative, who will give you the necessary assistance you may need at the course of this project.
Finally, I count on your absolute confidentiality, transparency and trust, whilelooking forward to your prompt reply towards a swift conclusion of this transaction.You can visit the websites below for a better understanding of the situation:-
Kindly respond to me with your complete name,phone and fax number on my
best regards.
Prince Fayad. Bolkiah.
