YOUR PROMPT ATTENTION PLEASE
FROM: Sherif El-Adly and family.
Good Day to you.
I hope you will not mind me writing to you, though I feel that a
letter like this is the most confidential and effective way to contact
you. My name is Sherif el-Adly, son of Habib Ibrahim El-Adly (Ministry
of Interior (Egypt).I Am sure you are aware Egyptian citizens are
politically used against one another which my father is one of the
target.I am writing you with the believe that you are competent and
trust worthy to partner with my family to invest in real estate and
manufacturing with our funds but in your name.
REASON FOR THE REEACHING TO YOU
MY father, Habib Ibrahim El-Adly (Ministry of Interior (Egypt) is
currently in prison custody and can not handle his business personally
and neither can any family member do so,All my father's bank accounts
have been frozen in Egypt , U.S and England. They want to ruin our
entire family not considering many years of dedicated and selfless
services of my father to Egypt. Read the bbc middle east news below.

My mother is critically ill with cancer,doctors recommended that
operation, now that the cancer is early. We cannot access any funds
due to the confiscations on all our accounts and assets.
However My father disclosed when i visited him in prison custody that
he has some money deposited with a finance firm .He advised me to
look for a foreigner that I will present as the owner of the funds
with relevant certifications to have him receive the funds for any
lucrative investment project that can yield good revenue and
reasonable return on investment and must be executed strictly under
the foreigner's name -your name.
This is the reason why I have contacted you. I do not want to carry
out this task with any member of my extended family or friends, we
are not confident of them all.
If you can genuinely assist us to transfer the funds out of Finance
company we shall pay you 30% of the total sum. The total sum is U.S
Please reply me promptly if your are interested in assisting/partnering
with me so that I can furnish you with the details
For the Family.
