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
