From: Paul Durus
Attention: Managing director.
l am very interested in doing business in your country, therefore l would need your assistance and co-operation. l am particularly interested in properties but your advice on the other areas of the private sector will be higly appreciated.l got your contacts from a business guide and l am of the belief that you will be of a great help in guiding me to a successfull establishment of a good business in your country which is a good business atmosphere profit advantage to both of us.
My name is Paul Durus from the Republic of Sierra Leone, l am the first son of Mr Silver Durus who was a top manager in the Central Bank of Sierra Leone. My late father was kidnapped by the rebels on the day they attacked our capital city ( freetown) looting and destroying government offices, although he was later rescued by the soldiers, he latter died of injuries he sustained.
Due to his position, he was able to secure some reasonable amount of money ( US$ 6.3million) which he deposited in a private security company outside our country. The officials of the security company have no idea that this is money because my late father registered the consignment as family valuables. Now after his burial, my family decided to leave the country for two reasons; one for our safety and also to find a way of properly securing this funds and then investing it in viable business ventures, hence l am writing you.
I will therefore like you to help me in very possible way in securing this money in your country,you will also assist me in finding a good business I will invest on. In view of your participation, I have made up my mind to give you 20% of this money. You will be required to come to Bangkok for a meeting with me, this will give us the chance to know each other better before this money will be moved to your country.
if you have any question do not hesitate to include same in your reply. l would like to assure you that there is no risk involved in this business so there is no need to entertain any fear. You can also contact me on the above telephone number.
You will do well to reply this mail.
