Attention Karina Castro,

Please accept my greetings as I thank you for your expedient response to my business proposition.

This is much appreciated, in response to your email and in furtherance thereof, allow me state that after receiving your email and advising my client we are more committed to work with you, we would be able to cooperate with each other and attain success. Now quite considered is the fact that I am not acquainted with you very well, but my plan was to initiate correspondence with you by email and attain a level of understanding and trust with you, which would enable us work cordially. I believe that the establishment of such TRUST with each other would be the basis of our cooperation and I am sure you agree with me.

Furthermore, we will be glad to have your partnership, and I strongly believe that this partnership will be mutually beneficial to us all, also, we do envisage working briskly and punctually, and we hope to conclude the first two phases of this interaction within the next few days.

I am Mr. WILLIAMS DAWSON, CEO, of GLOBAL ROYAL INVESTMENT LIMITED, we are consultant agent and advisers, and we offer professional investment links, advice and analysis to client in the Middle East and Asia. We also help clients determine where and how to investment funds, and take advantage of lucrative opportunities at the right time. We have been appointed by a client to manage and invest the sum of Ninety Five Million U.S Dollars (us$95,000,000:00), but since we only specialize in consultation and advise services, we have reasoned that it would be appropriate to get the participation of other business professionals who would act as field managers of the investment funds, whereas we would be consultants and advisers.

The investment funds are presently secured in the National Islamic Bank in Saudi Arabia but the investment and financial laws in there do not favour the investment and ownership of large funds by a woman, therefore we have considered transferring the investment funds into your country and investing the funds in your country. We have considered investing the funds in fields like Real Estates, Stocks and Capital, Manufacturing, Construction, Information Technology (INFOTECH) Computer Engineering, Plastic and Insulation Manufacturing, and Sea Food export.

Therefore on these investment fields, we would want to get advice and suggestions from you as to which of these fields of investment would be most lucrative in your country to enable us determine which field to concentrate on. Although, our final aim is to invest the funds, we believe that before the funds can be invested the funds need to be moved into your country. Please note that the investment funds are presently secured in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, therefore, I would want to receive confirmation of the following from you:

1. Are you in position to receive the total sum (Ninety Five Million U.S Dollars) via my client bank to your desire bank account within your country safely and secure?

2 Are you in position to cooperate with us to invest the funds according to agreed terms and conditions?

3. Do you have a bank account that can receive such money?

4. Can you defend this fund when it get to your account?.

Please provide answers to the questions above to enable us determine on how to proceed. Also provide us with a detailed nature and profile of your business, business address, phone number and fax number, occupation.

Kindly confirm receipt of my email as I look forward to hear your voice by dialing me on +44 74 520 59 367 from you. I will stop now and wait to hear your urgent response.

Hello,
Thank you for your email! However, I don't know if this will fit in our budget. Is there anything better you could do?

I am responding to your reply to my solicitation. Thank you so very
much for considering it worthwhile replying to my solicitation. I am
hopeful you will earnestly take this onerous responsibility with me
and with all humility for our mutual benefits.

For introduction; I am Mohammad Amir Khadov, a citizen of Azerbaijan.
I am 36 years old. I resided in London in the United Kingdom where I
served a widow; Ms. Susan Orwell-Brown as a live-in house keeper since
I was 16 years old, until she passed on in September 2010 at the age
of 82 years. I lost my father when I was age 4 and mother when I was
15.
I have since 2014 relocated to my home country Azerbaijan where I now
work in a security firm.

Ms. Susan Orwell-Brown was like a mother to me. She was responsible
for my education till my High school. She had no child of her own. Her
husband Mr. Alf Brown passed on in year 2004 at the age of 84 years.
This is a confidential disclosure that I would want you uphold as much
as you can.

Barely a year before the demise of Ms. Brown, she handed to me a box
containing some jewelries and documents. Among the documents are
certificate and an account statement issued by a bank in Belfast in
United kingdom.
Content of the certificate shows a deposit of a reasonable amount of
money which I will discuss when I receive further from you.

I don’t want the money to be lost to the bank. I am now contacting you
to join me in retrieving the fund from the bank. You would be
presented to the bank, through legal backing, as the custodian of the
fund ever introduced to me during my stay with Ms. Orwell-Brown in the
United Kingdom. With this done, the bank will only deal with you as
the family representative and the sole manager empowered to receive
and manage the fund.

This is the core information which I would want you understand and
consider imperative in taking this intent to a logical conclusion.

When I receive your response, I will disclose more information on how
we shall go about claiming the money and what I intend to do when we
have it. I have contacted a solicitor here in my country for a guide.
I'll let you know what he advised on what to do and how to go doing it
right, when I receive from you.

I am waiting to read from you to discuss further.

Please keep this information in absolutely confidence to avoid giving
any chance for any other person to know about it to scuttle this
opportunity.

Thanking you for reading this mail and in anticipation of your
understanding and cooperation.

I thankfully acknowledge receipt of your response to me once again.

I am thankful for your understanding and the confidence reposed in me
releasing your personal information to me. I am indeed honoured to be
trusted to this extent.

Your information as received will be accorded strict confidentiality
and treated in line with applicable privacy policy on personal
information.

Further to my previous email, this is intended to give an insight into
my intention and to explain the purpose for which you have been
contacted, the process and plans the claim process will take, as well
as the benefit inherent in its conclusion. Please read the content
keenly.

1. The primary aim is to present you to the fund holding bank in UK
(Clydesdale bank), as the Manager and Custodian of the fund which
document I have in my possession. You are to take possession of the
fund for investment purpose.

2. Amount stated in the last statement of account in my possession is
£12,870,900.00 (Twelve Million Eight Hundred and Seventy Thousand Nine
Hundred Pounds) about US$15million. The fund is currently in an
account at one of the branches of Clydesdale bank in London.

I don't want the fund forfeited to the bank or the government of the
United Kingdom. Hence a formidable partner as a manager must take
possession to manage the fund through viable investment in business.
That's why you have been contacted.

3. You would ensure the fund is received, accommodated and invested in
good business in your country, as I do not want the fund to remain in
the UK. We shall discuss on this as we progress.

4. On release of the fund to your bank, I hope to come to your
country, or we will plan a meeting somewhere suitable, where we shall
know more about ourselves and discuss more on the business and
investment aspect.

5. I am proposing a 45% of the fund for your entitlement, while the
balance fund will be invested in viable business, where the profits
annually will be disbursed in 40/60% for you and me respectively.
Please advice on this if you have a contrary idea.

6. I have contacted a solicitors in UK for advice and possible
assistance to facilitate the claim process. He is Mr. Pond Marsh, of
PM Solicitors LLP, in Blackpool, Lancashire in the United Kingdom. I
presume he will be useful to us in facilitating the claim to a logical
conclusion. Advice as may be received would be communicated to you on
receipt of your response to this email.

Having your personal information as required to kick start the claim
process, we could begin with the exercise.

Kindly write back to me to discuss any question you might have after
reading through this information details.
If you do not have any question, I want your permission to contact the
lawyer in the United Kingdon, to make further inquiries and to begin
the legal procedures as may be involved in the claim process.
I look forward to your response.

Once again I crave your understanding and respectfully request that
you keep the content of all our mail correspondence strictly
confidential and respect the integrity of the information you may come
by as a result of this intended business engagement. Our personal
interest should be guided judiciously.
