I will provide you all the necessary detail about me once trust is established between us. Please read thoroughly and get back to me but you have the obligation to decline if you are not interested.
I am a Syrian industrialist and a member of Syrian business men council In Damascus. My family is under the threat of President Bashar al-Assad for our resolute support for a true democratic Government in Syria.
Due to the current President Bashar al-Assad protest in the country as you can find out in this website http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/. Many families are running for their dear lives as soldiers are killing civilians, women and children. I want to bring to your notice that I have in my possession the sum of (sixteen million and five hundred thousand United state dollars) 16,500,000usd in my possession. This is the money I have saved for my entire life as an industrialist and I have it stored in my house because putting money in a bank could be a very big risk in a country like ours.
I have secured this money in a box and have consulted an envoy here in Damascus who will help me in moving my box out of Syria for safe keeping and possible investment. This is why am in keen need of a Reliable and Trust worthy person who will receive the box, secure and protect it till my arrival which should be soon. I have to take this chance because, I have no other alternative but to trust somebody .Am an orphan with no brother or sister so I cannot risk my life here to avoid an end to my family lineage. All I have is my wife, my daughter and son. They deserve a decent life since I want them to grow up in a peaceful environment. I will relocate to your country with my family and invest the money in accordance with law, your advice and assistance. We can work together and achieve a better future for our families. Please you will have to take note that the envoy is not aware that my box contains money and this is for security reasons.
All I ask is permit me register the consignment in your name as your personal belonging and you are expected to retrieve it once it's in Europe. There will be no risk in this deal; I have made the necessary arrangement the safe delivery of the consignment box to your referred location. I will assume you are capable of handling a deal of this magnitude and also trust you to maintain absolute secrecy and confidentiality to protect this great achievement. In less than 4 days the box should be in your possession if you are swift on your part .Beware, I have taken precautionary measures to secure the money. The box is coded with high security gadget. You will be entitled to 30% of the total sum of 16.5usd while 70% will be mine. I believe this is a fair deal. write me back at (email@example.com) for more details.
