With due respect trust and humanity. I write you this letter which I believe wouldbe of great interest to you. I got your contact from a business directory here in Thailand chamber of commerce and industry, I decided to unfold my investment plan to you of which I am convince as to solicit for your support and assistance after reading your profile.
I am Mr. Steve Kwaku the son of late brigadier Johnson Kwaku of Congo . My late father was in charge of arms and ammunition procurement for the Congo Amry under President Joseph Kabila. He was arrested and shot in the current crises in my country by the rebel forces. Before his death he was able to confirm personally to us of an existence deposit of $12.5M (Twelve Million five hundred thousand United state dollars only) which he deposited in a private security company here in Thailand for safekeeping.
After the death of my father, I was able to escape along with my mother to Thailand where we seek asylum as refugee but unfortunately my mother was killed in Phuket in southern Thailand on 26th December 2004 by tsunami wave and her body was never found as she was flushed away by the sea. Her death turned my life to an orphan with unbearable condition. Now I have certified the existence of the fund in the security vault with all the appropriate documents of the fund in my hand as the next of kin/ beneficiary of the fund.
Now I have concluded arrangement to clear the trunk box containing the money out from the security company so that I can transfer the fund out of Thailand for investment partnership because due to my current status as a political refugee here I am limited to handle such huge amount of cash as I am also limited from operating a bank account as a refugee here in Thailand.
For the above reason, I have decided to seek for an assistance and help from you as a foreign partner to enable us reach a contract joint venture partnership agreement to transfer and invest the fund in a profitable business orientation in your country under long time joint venture partnership to enable us entrust the investment in your care and management as soon as it is cleared from the security vault here in Thailand.
(1) I will offer a 35% reasonable percentage from the total fund as a reward for all your help in transferring of the fund to your Bank account in your country.
(2) I will map out 5% of the total fund to meet up any expenses made by both parties during the transaction.
(3) To enable me relocate and settle in your country as soon as the fund is successfully transferred to your account.
(4) To reach a long-term partnership agreement to entrust the investment in your management.
Please, go to the below site so you can understand the present situation in my country.
Note this transaction is 100% risk free from both sides, So you should not entertain any fear. For the interest of this transaction do not hesitate to contact me on my direct email:
