Dear Friend,
I am contacting you for an urgent assistance to mobilise a business transaction and further to have 
explicit investment information about your country from you. I am Princess Fayad Bolkiah, the wife 
of Prince Jefri Bolkiah, former Finance Minister of Brunei, the tiny oil-rich sultanate.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 prope!
rties 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 One Hundred Million United States 
Dollars US$100 Million under special arrangement into the custody of different Trustee companies 
for safe keeping abroad.This action was on the orders of my husband to me to enable us start a new 
The money were splitted and kept in the following countries in this proportion:US$24 Million is in 
Euroupe, US$32 Million is in Middle East, US$15 Million in Africa, US$12 Million in the United 
Kingdom and US$17 Million is in Asia respectively. 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 12% of these funds to you as compensation for your strong 
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. 
Many Thanks & May God's blessing remain with you,Amen.
