An investment letter from Captain Robert Adams.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I pray this mail finds you in a state of your sound health and indomitable spirit. Please, I would like to confide in you for a business proposal for you. I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business.

This is a personal email directed to you for your personal consideration alone, I request that it remain and be treated as such only. Though this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it, because it still remains the fastest medium of communication. However, this correspondence is private, and it should be treated in strict confidence. I know it will take you by surprise to receive this information because emails like this flies over the internet telling people about funds and other things. I always receive similar offers from the internet which I normally delete because I believe they are all hoax email from scam artistes. Let me introduce myself, I am Captain Robert Adams, an American soldier; I am serving in Kabul, Afghanistan. I am 40years old, single parent. You know we are being attacked by insurgents everyday and car bombs. During our last rescue mission at Kandahar, we came across a trunk box that contains huge amount of money that belongs to the revolutionaries which I believe they use in buying weapons and ammunition, and it was agreed by all Military top officer’s party present that the money will be shared amongst us.

Out of the total fund my share was $9,500,000.00 (Nine Million five hundred thousand US dollars), and I am seeking your assistance to receive/invest the funds in your country in any profitable business, in as much as you can assure me that the money will be used properly until I complete my service here. This is no stolen money, and there are no dangers involved. We are five military officers who shared the funds each; it is a kind of benefit to us in war zone. If you agree to accept my offer, I’ll talk to those of my comrades so that we can jointly invest the total funds the sum of $47,500.000.00 (Forty Seven million five hundred thousand United States dollars), through you. I want to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free and movement of funds to you will be confidential that nobody will break the law. Think about it and get back to me for more details. But you must keep all information between you and I alone. Now Real Estate business is growing rapidly, I decided to contact you for investment partnership. If Real Estate business is not profitable enough and you have Knowledge of business in the following sectors: Real Estate, Tourism, Stock speculation, Film Industries, Mining, Oil, Transportation and Tobacco or a solid background and idea of making good profit in any business, we can invest the funds.

I do not know for how long we will remain here in Kabul Afghanistan, and I have survived two suicide bomb attacks, which prompted me to reach out for help, please if this proposal is acceptable by you, kindly respond back to me and we shall discuss about the conditions and terms.

Thanks and waiting to hear from you.

Yours Faithfully,

Captain Robert Adams.
