Dear , INVESTMENT ENQUIRY ON ESTATE PROPERTIES. It is with heartfelt hope that I write to seek your co-operation andassistance in my desire to invest into Estate properties in your country.i saw your contact when I was doing research. Briefly, I am an old man and due for retirement at any moment from now after putting many years in civil service as Secretary Ministerial Contract Evaluation and Implementation, in the presidency. And during this past years in the office I was able to secure huge amount of money from over-invoiced Government Contract Bills,through the advantage of my position in the office. I have been deliberating on how to invest this fund abroad in a confidential manner until I came to a conclusion to use it to buy Estate Properties and lease to people while part of it will be used for non speculative investments in your country as part of measures to secure the betterment of my retirement future, till I come over to meet with you. In view of this therefore, I am soliciting your confidence, support and assistance as my partner to claim this fund for the investment project with your name and support from theSecurity Vault where I deposited it for safe keeping. This is because we civil servants are not allowed to own and operate Dollar Accounts, especially outside the country. As a matter of fact, to claim this fund remains the vital issue for now which after the successful claim of the fund we can then invest immediately into any Estate Property or any other areas you may consider lucrative in your country or else where. However, I will be happy to disclose to you the amount to be claimed and invested as soon as I received your reply,as I expect you to be trustworthy and kind enough to respond positively to my ENQUIRY. If you are willing to assist me kindly send your information so for onward procedures. Your Names Your Private/Mobile Telephone,Fax Numbers Your Age Your Occupation Your Full Address Thanks. Martin
