FROM: M.ABDOLRAHMAN I am an average-aged man of 42 years of age,an Iranian of Persian origin. I lived in Botswana where I owned a flourishing currency trading company(Bureau de Change,before the airstrike that razed my office building to void and caused my business a tremendous setback after killing a few staff including Alas,my wife and pretty daughter, Nadia. The reason i contacted you is to tap from your wealth of experience to enable me have access to a more viable investment in your country and to find out if you could guide me on your country's Fiscal or Budgetary policies in the last couple of years so i can invest my money overthere without encountering any issues with your homeland securities operatives over my non citizenship status. This would have been the case if i were to incorporate a limited liability company for my burea de change without partnering with a capable and bonafide citizen of your country.It has become inevitable for me to diversify the scope of my investment and leave Botswana for a more stable business climate like your country. I can no longer guarantee the security of my life and property back in Botswana,especially now that most of the people i was indebted to who knew i was on seat the day my office complex was razed down,think i am dead by now. Meanwhile i am still receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit of Lancashier General Hospital here in Haslingden Rossendale,UK where i was flown to by a certain UN Doctor from Cyprus Greece because I did not want to be found among the casualties & survivors for obvious security reasons ,knowing that i have 29 million dollars cash in my Safe Deposit Box.I later concealed the money among some ancient golden artefacts in my vault and deposited it in the Bonded Warehouse of a Diplomatic Security and Courier Service Company that can deliver the consignment to any destination i choose to settle away from Botswana whenever i am discharged from the hospital. Nobody at the security courier company knows that there is physical cash in my consignment in their custody. But look at me now still here after all this while and obliged to keep paying the daily demurrages and security charges on the cargoe untill i am discharged from the hospital next month,Insha Allah. I had thought and planned accordingly, that i will not stay here in the hospital beyond the three months i was told initially by the doctor it will take for the plastic surgery to heal completely. That is why i think it's wiser now to contact you and use the money i raised from the sale of the ancient golden artefacts and paid into my Credit Card Account here in the UK ,to settle the total charges and the courier cost of delivering the consignment to you overthere instead of allowing the deposit there at the warehouse in to keep accumulating more and more bills which i may not be able to afford from what little that will be left in my credit card account after i settle my hospital bills. So let me have your full infomation so we can negotiate on the commensurate percentage of the total sum i shall give to you for assisting me to see this deal through and to enable the diplomat to contact and identify you with your own international passport which you must send to me to strenghten my confidence in you . I have attched mine and look forward to seeing yours. I await your response . Best regards. MANSOOR ABDOLRAHMAN
