The new Government is trying all efforts to seize all funds that belong to the former President Lucio Gutierrez. Your assistance in now needed to lay claim to this funds since it was deposited in the name of a "Foreign Partner” Fictitious. I personally will not be able to handle such transaction now since I am still a serving Officer in the country's army but as a confidant of the former President Lucio Gutierrez, I am ready to help him seek for help. I request that you provide me with your full names, contact address,Occupation, telephone and fax numbers and once this information is received I will provide you with the necessary and relevant documents that will put you in place as the original owner of the money. Mr. Lucio has already instructed that 85% of this money will be for him while the remaining 15% will be for you and I can assure that the transaction is risk free. Upon your response, I will introduce you to an attorney who will provide you with guidelines and assistance too. For now I will suggest that all correspondence should be via Email for purely security reasons and no doubt this proposal will make you apprehensive. Please, I employ you to observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because we shall require your assistance to invest our share in your country. Your timely response will be awaited Regards, Mr. Jorge Arroyo
