Good Morning,

My name is Wayne Finger; I am a US citizen and private business consultant based in London. I have 
this very legitimate proposal for your or your company. I represent the interest of two government 
officials in North Africa. I am entrusted with the responsibility of locating a capable overseas 
partner with whom we can work to discretely transfer a considerable large sum of money for overseas 

The funds were earned through private commission from contracts, royalties and exploration rights. 
We are in need to transfer out of here as soon as possible, in view of new situations we are 
presently faced with. We are willing to invest with your assistance after transfer is completed. I 
would respectfully request you maintain confidentiality, and appreciate your urgent response to 
enable me provide more details.

Thank you,

Wayne Finger
