Dear intending partner, My name is Mr. Kwak Tae-Hwi, personal treasurer to Mr. Kim Woo-choong, the arrested Group founder of Daewoo. Who is presently in jail? I have a concealed business suggestion for you; I have documents of a large amount of funds which he (Mr. Kim Woo-choong my boss) handed over to me before he was jailed for fraud and embezzlement, thereby leading to the freezing of his finances and assets. I was once arrested as a close associates to Mr. Kim Woo-choong, but now, I have been released but placed under immigration security watch list. I cannot travel out of the country, make or answer telephone calls; my only means of communication for now is through email as I am seriously monitored. After searching through the books of your country's chambers of commerce and industries here in Korea I am contacting you to assist me to re-profile the funds and equally invest same. The total amount of funds to be re-profiled is Sixty six million dollars ($66,000,000.00) and you will be paid 20% for your management services. As soon as I receive your acceptance, I will send you all necessary details and my identification. Yours sincerely, Kwak Tae-Hwi Email email@example.com N/B: YOU CAN GET MORE INSIGHT FROM THE LINKS BELOW: http://www.cnn.com/2006/BUSINESS/05/30/skorea.daewoo/?section=cnn_latest http://www.thenews.com.pk/daily_detail.asp?id=8637 http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Korea/HF01Dg03.html
