I'm sorry but happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from London, though i tried my best to involve you in the business but God decided the whole situations. Presently Iâm in London now for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite the fact that it failed us somehow.
Now contact my secretary in Burkina Faso his name is Sam Karim on his-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) Ask him to send you the total sum of ($3.5m) American dollars which i kept for your compensation for all your past efforts and attempt to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touched with my secretary Sam Karim and instruct him where to send the fund to you. Please do let me know immediately you receive the money so that we can share the joy together after all the sufferings at that time.
In the moment, I am very busy here in London because of the investment projects which I and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I have forwarded instructions to my secretary on your behalf to receive that fund, so feel free to get in touch with him. He will send the money to you without any delay ok.
Extend my greetings to your family.
Dr Pat Babar.
