My name is Mr. Zsolt Ferenc Lajos and I am constrained to write you this E-Letter after various enquiries I have made regarding sending out part of my savings to acquire a property in the U.S.A/Canada and also in financing directly some of my importation without going through raising a Letter of Credit, which has almost limited my imports as at when needed. I have at hand total amount of $780,000, and would want to solicit your assistance in using your Equity Line of Credit Account in transferring some to you, for your assistance to purchase a home in your state not more than $300,000 and to raise the balance periodically in paying my customers directly for my imports hence we have restrictions on amount of money to be remitted at a time. I spoke to my accountant in the United-Kingdom on numerous possibilities, and he came up with this measure, which of course will not attract any of the Government taxes in financing. Since the funds will go directly to a home Equity Line of Credit. I have discussed with my wife, and we decided to write you for assistance, even though we have not met you in person. We are willingly to work with you on a percentage that is reasonable, as we will transfer the funds in bits to your home Equity Line of Credit depending on your limit. Please notify us if you can be of assistance provided you have a home in the United States/Canada. We will not use a checking or saving account for this purpose at restrictions applying here. I will furnish you with scanned copies of my identity when I get an affirmative response from you. The below information can be used to run a background check on me if the need arise.
