Dear Friend,
 My name is Akio Akihiro a contractor from Japan. I am interested to invest in your
 country through you. I am in Hong Kong now with the Sum of US$19,500.000.00
 nineteen million five Hundred Thousand US Dollars which I would like to invest
 in your country if possible.
 I made this money through a contract awarded to me in Osaka by the ministry
 during the relocation of Osaka airport and I am not safe if I go back to Japan
 because I did not finish the contract, I hope you can understand my situation
 and assist me to invest this money properly as this is my only hope. Please
 kindly get back to me as soon as possible.
 Best regards,
Akio Akihiro
