Dear Sir,

I am Miss. Tira Hassan Turkmani, I am 17 Years old and a Syrian citizen. My father Hassan Turkmani was al-Assad's security adviser and assistant vice president and was killed in Damascus of Syria and his business office burnt down because of his support to the President Bashar AL- Assad.

 The rebel leaders have tried all they could to persuade President Bashar AL- Assad to conduct a free and all inclusive election but he refused and decided to go to war against the citizens he is pretending to govern. If President Bashar AL- Assad thinks that he is popular, he would have accepted to have a transitional committee and general election will be conducted and who wins will at-least bring peace to Syria.

Anyway, let me not take your time with the situation in Syria as my family was mostly affected. I lost my father- Hassan Turkmani the security adviser and assistant vice president to President Bashar AL- Assad regime and My Mother in bomb blast at Damascus.

 I had to escape Syria with my little sister Yalda to Lebanon and from there to United States where my father had huge sum of money with Bank in United States, so that I can invest the funds with overseas partners because in Syria the political turmoil appeared to be continued for a long time. Honestly, I want to invest and make use of the money in your country, as we all are aware that the crisis still continues in Syria and I cannot also invest in United States due to their double-tax regime.

I can assure you that the transaction is a hitch-free type. Please feel free to contact me.

Let me stop here, hoping that you will respond promptly.

Thanks for your anticipated cooperation.

Miss Tira & Yalda Turkmani.
