From:Mrs Fawziya Dhari Ali al-Fayadh Tel +66-68943653 Attention: The Managing Director, Thank you for the attention being given to go through my mail. Before I proceed, I humbly introduce and identify myself . My name is Mrs Fawziya Dhari Ali al-Fayadh, an Iraqi Refugee. My late husband was until recently, Shiite Member of Parliament and National Assembly legislator until his assassination in 2005. When my husband and my first son, including two of his bodyguards were killed by gunmen during the time of crisis which is still ravaging my country, I and my last Son escaped to Iran with the help of United Nations officials from there we came to Thailand. I am 58 years old, now undergoing medical treatment in the hospital here in Udomthani Thailand because of the shock I encountered when my husband and son were killed which has led to my present condition today. I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise but honestly I do not intend to surprise you. I write this letter in respect of my intention to invest the sum of USD$10Million with your company which we inherited after the death of husband. The fund was originally gotten from my late husband proceeds. My late husband was able to safeguard this fund through a very good diplomatic contact from my country for safety, shortly before the recent crisis in my country which has caused a great damage in my family and the country at large. I have decided to contact you because I am interested in investing this fund in your country which is investment friendly. Please kindly guide and assist me in making the right investment as you have more business / investment experience more than us. I am in believe that you would be of great help in guiding my Son to a successful exploration of the investment potentials in your country until I regain my health. In view of your participation, I am ready to give you a good negotiable percentage for your assistance, or better still commit it into viable Joint venture projects, be assured that you stand no risk of any kind as the funds belong to me and my only survived Son.Being in exile is not easy at my age coupled with my illness due to the trauma from what I have been through. As soon as I get your consent, we will quickly move this fund to your country for investment . I am here with my Son Rashidi. I strongly believe that associating with you to embark on this and other business venture will derive a huge success hereafter. However, upon your acceptance to work as my partner, you can contact me with my private telephone number or e-mail for more details and the steps we shall take to finalize on the project. Await to hearing from you soonest. Sincerely Yours , Mrs Fawziya Dhari Ali al-Fayadh
