Dear Friend

I am contacting you for an urgent assistance to mobilise a business transaction  and to invest into 
your business in your country.
I am  the wife of Prince Jefri Bolkiah, former Finance Minister of Brunei, the tiny oil-rich 
sultanate on the Gulf Island. I will save your time by not amplifying my extended royal family 
history, which has already been disseminated by the international media during the controversial 
dispute that erupted between my husband and his stepbrother, the sultan of Brunei Sheik Muda 
Hassanal Bolkiah.

As you may know from the international media, the sultan had accused my husband of financial 
mismanagement and impropriety of US$14.8 Billion dollars. This was as a result of the Asian 
financial crisis that made my husband's company Amedeo Development Company and government owned 
Brunei Investment Company to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in office.

However my husband is in jail now, his bank accounts and private properties including a crude oil 
export refinery have been confiscated by the sultanate.

Furthermore, during this unfortunate period i was advised to evacuate my immediate family outside 
the sultanate to avoid further prosecution from the sultan and his security operatives, but luck 
ran against me on my attempt to escape.I am now kept under house arrest by the Sultan and i have no 
access to a phone but I have a Palm V hand-held computer from
which I am sending you this mail.

Before my In-castration, I went ahead to dispatch the sum of Five Hundred Million United States 
Dollars US$500 Million in cash under special arrangement into the custody of different Private 
security and Trustee companies for safe keeping abroad.This action was on the orders of my husband 
to me to enable us start a new life. The money where splitted and
kept in the following countries in this proportion: US$50 Million is in Spain, US$100 Million is in 
Malaysia, US$100 Million is in Switzerland, US$80 Million is in Thailand and the balance US$US170 
Million is in The Netherlands 

Hence I seek your good assistance to invest these funds into profitable investment in your country 
to facilitate future survival for my family abroad.I have decided to offer 20% of these funds to 
you as compensation for your strong cooperation.
Please I count on your absolute confidentiality, transparency and trust while looking forward to 
your prompt reply towards a swift conclusion of this business transaction.Below is my contact mail

Many Thanks & May Allah blessing remain with you,Amin.

I remain yours sincerely

Princess Fayad .W. Bolkiah
