Wadi Chahrour - Haret El Sit Baabda - Mount leba Beirut, lb 1302 Lebanon Dear friend, My name is Abou El Dan. I own and manage Abou El Dan Ventures a Lebanese company specialized in crude oil exploration and management with offices in Beirut and Qana. I am writing this letter to personally solicit for your assistance in a project of mutual benefits. As you may be aware of, the current crisis in the Middle East over the last weeks has made live extremely hard for people in Lebanon and to say the least for businesses. We have been in business for more than a decade and as such, Abou El Ventures have been fortunate to have executed major contracts all over the Middle East in its specialized areas. I have come to the realization that the crisis in the Middle East will be on going despite all the efforts by the international communities to amicably resolve the issues. As such, I moved my liquid assets of $32.5 million USD out of Lebanon to a secured place in Spain for securing reasons. For security reasons, the funds is now bonded as foreign affiliate with a security company in Spain. The United Nation is tracking down all Lebanese business men account holders as such it is now difficult for me to front as the owner of the account and hence the need for your parthnership. I got your contact information over the internet. I feel certain you will be of great help. I implore you to treat this letter with utmost confidentiality If you are not in a position to assist, please do not respond to this letter and I apologize for taking your time. Upon receipt of your acceptance, we will negotiate on what should be a fair compensation for your assistance. If you are interested in rendering this most needed assistance, please send your full names and address and your phone number(s) for effective communication. Please I await your urgent response through my private e-mail to enable us proceed with the transfer once agreements have be reached. Sincerely Yours, Abou El Dan
