Hello: I agree the message came to you accidentally. I have a friend (Damian Riley), who work in Santanderin UK. He normally manages my accounts in the Bank and that is where I know him personally. It has reached 7th times I have written to him without a reply(I just did), I called his line: it is at present offline. I hope he traveled. I am a solicitor and have a group of companies based in UAE. I have Billionaires and millionaires are my clients that proposes for a legal investigation on a particular properties/contracts. I believe you will take this letter as confidential. A transfer of 5Omillion was send into my account last week, which I need to wire directly to UK account for a deposit of a Commercial Property purchase. My bank insisted I should use David's old account to receive the money since I have transferred to it before. The new account he gave me cannot be used - they said at least 1 transaction should have entered my account from the new one David gave me. So, I have been writing a letter since last Monday to him to furnish the old account so bank would allow the transfer to be made - I have no response. My bank here insisted at least a minimum of a million transfer from a NEW account to my account before transferring the 5Omillion. I am entitled to 20% of a capital value in any business I executed. I usually give Paul 5% of a total capital value in a project. I am transferring a total sum of 2OOmillion. Anyway, should you have interest in furnishing your account to receive the initial deposit - You will be given 10million in ONLY the initial deposit of the said funds. Meanwhile, please let me have your name, address and company. I hope this message is well understood. Best Regards, Keith Richards.
