Dear Sir,

Peace be unto you.

I am interested in establishing investment portfolios in your country.
However, I have very limited knowledge as to what might be viable or
not. And I am contacting you for assistance in this regard being that
you are resident and understand the dynamics of your economy.
My preference would be any real estate but I willing to settle on any
good investment with good profit turn over and short to medium turn
around times. I would appreciate any assistance you might give me in
this regard. I am proposing to invest Fifty Million United States
Dollars (US$ 50,000,000.00) with your assistance.

By way of introduction, my name is Sheik Mamooud Hassan a Saudi Arabian
based in Ghana. Before my "forced retirement", my main line of
business was shipping (bulk cargo and containerized). I am married
with 4 children.

I was forced to retire from my shipping business because of a
sustained tremendous drop in profits. The drop was such that my
company had to declare bankruptcy. It is my believe that unseen hands
quickened the demise of the company. Excessive tax elements also did
not help. The said elements are still at work investigating me for tax
evasions that did not occur and the persecution has now made so
desperate that I am turning to a total stranger like you to assist me
in my quest to move from Ghana now and invest abroad.
My foremost intention is to acquire a property where I will live with
my family and if we agree on terms of your assistance, I would then
move the 50 million dollars to any account of your choice under your
name. You may be rest assured that I have secured the services of a
Lawyer who will assist in the transaction. His job would be to ensure
that the paper work is flawless and done in such a manner as would not
connect my name to the transaction.

He will also ensure that the right kind of paper work is acquired to
protect all parties involved, including you. Not that there is any
danger to your person or myself, but given my past experiences, it
always pays to be extra careful. You must know that this fund is the
only thing standing between me and abject poverty so you would
understand my paranoia for things being done right.

Of course I am more than willing to offer you a reasonable percentage
of the sum total for your assistance. If you are in the capacity to
assist me, please let me know through my alternate email address: so I can send you further details. also,
kindly email me a phone number to reach you on. Until I hear from, do
please accept my heart felt best wishes for  peace profound.

I am  with very kind regards,

Mamooud Hassan.
