Dear Confidant,
My name is Mr. LIM JEONG a citizen of North Korea and I would like you
 to guide me through the most viable investment opportunities in your Country.
Alternatively, I can invest in your line of business  if it’s viable.
I am one of the defectors from the North and I am currently residing in a Refugee camp in South
I have been in this country for sometime after defecting from the
 North, I was into currency exchange business and I was always traveling to other parts of Asia and
 Europe and during that period, I was able to move out my funds and deposit it in a financial
 institution in Europe.
I want to invest these funds in your country with your help and advice
 because we are being treated as foreigners here and watched because the Korean government
 believe we are a security threat. A lot of defectors now go on to Canada or the United States and
 some parts of Europe to live.
I want you to send me a complete breakdown of the investment
 opportunities in your country and also let me know what exactly I need to do to enable you invest the
 funds for me in your country,if interested.
On my freedom, I will then come over to your country after you receive
 the funds and work out the investment plans with you. After I hear from you and find out the best
 investment business you can introduce to me, I will tell you how much is involved.
Reply as soon as possible.
Regards and God Bless
