INVESTMENT / PARTNERSHIP / RELATIONSHIP.
First, I must insist on your confidence in this transaction. I am making this contact to you based on reliable information available to me courtesy of internet business index and confirmed by our local chambers of commerce and industry concerning your reputation. Thus I am convinced you would be capable to provide me with a solution to a money transfer transaction of Thirty Five Million and five hundred thousand U.S Dollars.
SOURCE: Please note that I would require a measure of guarantee prior to commencement, as I am hoping to build our trust on sincerity of purpose and mutual understanding. Please also do not under estimate the need for total confidentiality throughout the course of this transaction. You may use these links for some information to find out the source of the funds:
Toward the end of my service with Bank of China where I worked for many years, several of my colleagues and I set up companies with which we successfully secured loans for speculation in Hong Kong and Singapore stocks and real estate. We did this because it had dawned on us that we were paid barely enough to feed our families while top government
officials control billions of dollars.
The bank along with regulatory authorities from China and Hong Kong started an investigation into the losses of money and as a result a few of my colleagues and I went into hiding and have settled ourselves and our families. Due to our positions as being involved with the initial estigation, we cannot receive this money by ourselves or in our names at this time. Furthermore we had decided to remove this money and share it accordingly pending when the investigation dies down.
This has occurred and I cannot leave the money unattended for much longer for fear that it might be discovered. I hereby solicit your assistance to help take delivery of my share of these funds totaling (US$35,500,000.00) into your custody, and you will be adequately compensated with 20% of the sum.
I await your prompt response for further details.
