I am contacting you in respect of a very urgent matter that needs to be attend to immediately.
I am the Chairman (CEO) of one of GMBH sited in Germany , my firm deal with importation of gas and crude oil, I have been in business for over 20 years until of recent that my company encounter false allegation because of our last importation from Iran . The United State government has always been against our dealings and they influence the United Nations organization to investigate our past dealings. Presently I am in exile under the United Nations prosecution here in London United Kingdom.
Already all my accounts in Germany has been frozen until further investigation is dully carried out. Meanwhile I just received confidential information from my country Minister of Internal Revenue who is a very good friend of mine that they intended to extend the investigation network through out European nations which was the major reason why I am contacting you. Actually this has to do with the sum of â176 Millions Euros secretly deposited in my two offshore accounts with Belgium banks.
Although the account has been temporary deactivated immediate after the information got to me from my Minister friend but I still feel uncomfortable for the fund to remain within Europe because the accounts might be traced to Belgium , for this reason I want the fund to be completely move out of Europe to your country.
Also my banker has advised me that the fund should be move out as soon as possible and he has to assist me in working out the arrangement for smooth fund movement to any destination because secret investigation is still going on; therefore I will like to know your interest on this proposal as soon as possible because this must be dealt with before the next 72hours. The agreement is that you receive the fund into your bank account in your country for safety of the fund until the matter died down that am able to travel out of the country.
I agreed to offer you 30% of the fund if you can make this happen successfully. All that is needed from you as my foreign partner is to receive the fund into your bank account, my part of this transaction is to ensure that the fund is transfer into your bank account successfully which I can assure you that the fund will be transfer into your bank account within five (5) working days after we reached an agreement. I had already press necessary buttons within the bank management for smooth movement of the fund into your bank account. But you will have to prepare to visit my banks in Belgium for the fund transfer into your bank accounts in your country.
Upon your swift response I will send the details and contact personâs information to you.
Note that your quick response is very important.
