Hello my dear,
Having prayed to God to give me a very worthy person whom will take my
proposal in Good faith, i believe you will treat this offer with keen interest
and utmost sincerity.
My name John Atkins , from USA, although i was born in Saudi Arabia
but of American Origin.
Following the recent crises in Iraq, the militant group in Iraq has put my
business to suffer a tremendous set back as i run a currency trading
company and money exchange bureau in Baghdad.
During one of the recent Bomb explosion in Baghdad, my office/House
building was razed to nothing leaving 13 people dead and over 17 injured.
The reason why I am contacting you is to find out if i can invest my
money in your line of business. It has become very necessary for me to
diversify my interest in the area of investment. I have in cash the sum of
$13 million US dollars in Baghdad, I am searching for a responsible and
credible partner who can receive this fund on my behalf and invest it in
real estate or another line of business that will be profitable.
I am presently, undergoing treatment in the United Kingdom and my
doctor has advised that i may have to be in hospital for quite some time.
Please let me know urgently if i can work with you. From the proceeds
of our business you will be entitled to a good percentage of the profit.
I await your response.
