Greetings 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 abroad. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.
