Dear Good Friend,
I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred
to a Swiss Account with the cooperation of a new partner from Japan who
is an investor and international business merchant. Presently I'm in Japan
for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile,
I did not forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring
those funds from Benin Republic despite that it failed us somehow.
Now contact my Clerical Secretary. Presently his contact is:
Name: Mr. Bassy Williams, (Email: email@example.com)
Contact him immediately and request him to send you the total sum of $1,500,000.00
(One Million Five Houndred Thousand US Dollars) which I kept for your compensation
for all the past efforts and attempt to assist me in this matter. My partner
has taken His 25% as per our agreement. Out of my own (75%) portion of this
fund, I have allocated this $1,500,000.00 for your compensation in kind
appreciation. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much so feel
free and get in touch with my secretary Mr. Bassy Williams and instruct
him how to send the amount to you.
Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the
joy after all we passed through at that time. In the moment, I am very busy
here because of the investment projects and feasibility study which I and
my new partner are having at hand. I might not be chanced to my emails but
I will try to keep in touch. I am still interested in the Real Estate business
investment. Do not hesitate to signify to me if there is any investment
opportunity in your area.
Finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to my secretary on your
behalf to receive that money, so you can contact him today and he will send
the amount ($1,500,000.00) to you without any delay.
With best regards
Dr. John Katar
