From: Dr. Mitchell Rothwell. 215 Dawlish Road, East London, E14 5TK, London, United Kingdom. Private Tel: +44-703-183-9939. My Dear Friend, I have this proposal for you which I know you should be capable enough to handle. I am a special adviser to the South African President on alternative power supply and energy to reduce the dependence of the country solely on oil. We are also trying to reduce global warming like the United States and the United Kingdom’s government is fighting to stop. We presently have a project which is why I am in London UK to meet with experts who can handle this project for the South African Government. The real budget for this project is $1,250,000,000.00(One Billion, Two Hundred and Fifty Million Dollars) but I personally pushed the budget to $1.3 Billion Dollars creating an excess of $50 Million Dollars. I will like to invest the $50 Million Dollars in real estate in the United States. If you can provide your bank account for this fund to be transferred to you, I will make you my partner, trustee and investment manager. As a serving public officer, I am not allowed by law to run and operate an offshore bank account but I can give instructions for the disbursement of funds to any where as long as I say it is for the project it has been mapped out for. If you agree to do this, you will get $25% of the $50 Million Dollars and also get your commission as the manager of my real estate investments. The rest of the money will be invested in real estate according to your own directives. All I need from you is a response to this email stating that you are interested and capable to handle this project then we get the ball rolling. I want to believe you can handle this and you are someone I can trust with this money. Hope you will not betray this trust. I will need you to send me the following: 1. Your Full names. 2. Personal Phone number. 3. Personal Fax number. 4. Full contact or mailing address. 5. Sex. 6. Age. 7. Nationality. When I have this information, we will then move to the next step. Thank you for your time. Please feel free to call me on phone at any time. Yours truly, Dr. Mitchell Rothwell. 215 Dawlish Road, East London, E14 5TK, London, United Kingdom.
