Attn: The President/CEO I am Mr. Robert Maloney aged 54, Personal Assistant to PRINCE JEFRI BOLKIAH, who was the former Finance Minister of Brunei, located in the northwest of the island of Borneo. Brunei Darussalam is a small country governed according to Islamic values and traditions by His Majesty Sultan Hajj Hassanal Bolkiah Mu izzaddin Waddaulah. Due to the problems that affected my boss I was attacked by the kingdom and I am now sitting on wheel chair unable to walk or do anything but still trying to get my boss finances secured. I am presently hiding for the safety of my life. As you may know from the international media, the sultan has accused Prince Jefri of financial mismanagement and impropriety of US$16.8 Billion. This was as a result of the Asian Financial Crisis that made my client's company; AMENDEO DEVELOPMENT COMPANY and a government owned BRUNEI INVESTMENT AGENCY to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in office. Prince Jefri was relieved of his post as Finance Minister of Brunei and was stripped of his chairmanship post as head of the Nations International Investment Arm, the Brunei Investment Agency. The Prince controls 13 companies & Brunei's overseas assets. At the moment Prince Jefri is kept under house arrest, his bank accounts and private properties, including a crude oil export refinery were confiscated by the sultan. Furthermore to my advice, my client was able to evacuate USD $20.5M outside the country, with the assistance of a foreign diplomat. I need your assistance to take possession of the fund, for the purpose of investment for a period of Five year, you will be adequately compensated. Further information on the confirmation of this story and how best you can take possession of these funds will be sent to you for your verification, after the receipt of your positive response.
