Quest To Invest In Real Estate Properties/Imports" 
I am Mr.Ken Amre, I am a former special Adviser on Petroleum matters to the late Head of State Of 
Nigeria Gen. Sani Abacha. Because of my strategic Position in the former Government and also being 
a Close confidant of the late Head of State.
I was able to acquire personally the sum of $12,500,000.00 USD (Twelve Million, Five Hundred 
Thousand United States Dollars only) presently lodged In Security Company inform of Gold Bars in a 
security company here in Nigeria. I did not want the management of the Security Company to know the 
content of the consignments; therefore I registered the content of the consignments as Gold Bars. 
Now, the security company believes that what I deposited with them was Gold Bars. 
I made this money largely through "CONSULTANCY FEE" And "Good Faith Fees" paid by foreign Oil 
companies Prior to Allocation of Deep Water Oil Blocs and other 
Lifting/prospecting Rights (Nigeria is the 6th largest Producer/Exporter of Crude Petroleum in the 
World. As you are probably aware Nigeria is prone to Military 
Coups and the resultant Political/Economic Instability has fueled hyper Inflation, amongst other 
problems. I have therefore resolved to invest my money abroad, 
preferable in Real Estate Properties and Importation of Goods from your country for safety and 
optimum returns on Investment.
However, straight transfer of this money into a bank abroad will present two major problems one, 
the tax incidence will be too high, as much as 60% of this money will go up in Taxes, Levies, 
Penalties etc. as a result of Government deliberate restrictions on flight of capital Abroad. And 
also been accused of money laundering.and terrorism, The solution is to Courier this money cash 
abroad in form of consignment, through Courier service Company here in Nigeria in Conjunction with 
an embassy here in Nigeria, the money will be packed in a "Diplomatic Bag/Carton" tagged Diplomatic 
luggage that will be address to you. This system is secret and the money is therefore 
Untraceable. It is system used by most top Government officials to remove their fortunes to safety 
I have therefore concluded every arrangements with a Courier Company in Nigeria to Courier this 
money abroad using the courtesy and safety of Diplomatic Bag. All I now need is an honest partner 
who can receive the money on my behalf and help me to invest as aforementioned. There is absolutely 
no risk involved in this transaction as the money will be delivered to you in United States Dollars 
Bills.If you are interested in assisting me, please send to me by email immediately your preferred 
contact address where this money will be delivered to you, upon delivery, you are to lodge this 
money in a bank account and contact me for necessary arrangements for the investment. 
For your help and assistance in this deal, you will receive 35% of this money in cash or Equity if 
you wish to join the proposed company.I have notified the Security Company where I deposited the 
consignments that contained the fund, that I am 
moving the consignment abroad and the security company has since been waiting for my authority for 
the consignment to leave my country and move to abroad. 
So if you know that you will use this fund honestly as I have instructed then do urgently contact 
me back.and the details will be given to you on how you will 
be able to receive the fund in your country through the security company. You should also forward 
to me your telephone and fax number for easy communication 
and to fax you the documents concerning the consignments.All reply should be forwarded to

Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.
