Dear Sir/Madam, I am applying to become an investor in your private/company business. I am contacting you with the believe that we would be able to go into any good business venture that you may deem fit. We shall be placing an investment capital of $35Million Dollars under your person/company's direct control for a period of 15years investment plan. After that we would revalidate the investment and see if it will be good to continue with your project or request change of business. The purpose of investing through you or your company is because the investor can no longer invest in any business openly due to some corruption charges and political problems he has now in his country, which has made it impossible for him to come out openly in the public and invest in any viable business, because he is under house arrest in the hands of his government in his country. You will handle all his financial investment in your company until the problems are over. I shall send further details about the investor. I was his personal assistance who is also in hiding for the safety of my life, after an assassination attempt on my life by the government agent, believing that I know where some of his funds are kept. My duty is to make sure this fund get into the right place for investment before anything happens to me also. The investor was the former Finance Minister of Brunei. I will need you to send the following details to me, if you are willing to handle this investment on our behalf. 1. Your full names and address, including telephone numbers. 2. A brief profile about yourself and the work you do for a living including age and which country of origin you come from. On the receipt of the above details I will send you the full information required by mail on how to get this fund transferred to your bank account. Best Regards, Mr.Angelov Anas.
