I am Major General Mohammad Youssef Ad-Din Ibraheem (Retired), from Libya.
Honestly, I am not a businessman. I was an ex-military officer in the Libyan Army. But due to the current wave of problems and instability in my beloved country, now persons like us are now displaced and homeless and targets of miscreant, criminals and rebels, which is why i am presently in Ghana as a refugee on asylum.
My wife and my only son 27 years was killed during the recent problems in Libya and i am left only with my 17 years old daughter here.
Like we discussed over the phone today,i really need your assistance because you were highly recommended, by my brokers via your bank. You know during my service year as the minister for interior affairs in Libya, we had done a transaction with your (RHB)bank for the city of Tripoli but that was few years ago.
I have $6,500,000USD(Six million five hundred thousand united states dollars) in a Prime Security Company in Jakarta-Indonesia, which i deposited myself few years ago.
I hereby seek your assistance in the following ways.
1.) To assist me keep my fund under your custody for future lucrative investment purpose in your country, until the political crisis in my country is finally over
2.) To act/become my finance officer in order for you to assist me purchase a living house (home) in your country, where my daughter can come over to further her education for safety reasons.
I have a good relationship with the security company and i had earlier mentioned to them about my intention. All they need is for me to formalize introduce you as my representative and kin, and also give you a notarization and power of attorney to act on my behalf and receive the funds.
I do trust in your professional expertise and promise to offer you 20% of the total fund for your good efforts and kindness understanding.
My brother the war in Libya have turned rich and wealthy people into poor and in-secured people. because we have lost all my properties and assets in Libya, only my foreign/external assets that is left.
My 17 years daughter will be coming over to your country in the beginning of the year then she will turn 18 to familiarize with you and your family.
I am sick of anemia and treating a bullet wound in my leg area, but will also visit you soon INSHA ALLAH.
What i need from you now is your full contact/postal address and a copy of your ID so that i can perfect the necessary preliminary papers for you to receive the funds in Indonesia,without much delay or stress.
I will also fax your contacts details and my notarization to the Security company so that they will register the claim and contact you for the fund release.
Please we have to deal with utmost confidential and secret in this business to avoid any security reason. Okay ?
I sincerely appreciate your good gesture and acceptance to have a mutual joint venture transaction with me,
Maj.General. Mohammad Youssef Ad-Din Ibraheem
