Subject: Urgent Assistance Needed
Date sent: Thu, 13 Sep 2001 22:15:25
I got your reliable contact from my father's diary and further explicit
investment information about your country from my attorney in New York
who has been of great assistance to my family since our departure from
Brunei due to the human right abuses in my country.
I am Prince Fayad W. Bolkiah, the eldest son of Prince Jefri Bolkiah,
former Finance Minister of Brunei, the tiny oil-rich sultanate on the
Gulf Island of Borneo. I will save your time by not amplifying my extended
royal family history, which has already been disseminated by the international
media during the controversial dispute that erupted between my father and his
stepbrother, the sultan of Brunei Sheik Muda Hassanal Bolkiah.
As you may know from the international media, the sultan had accused my
father of financial mismanagement and impropriety of US$14.8 billion dollars.
This was as a result of the Asian financial crisis that made my father
company Amedeo Development Company and government owned Brunei Investment
Company to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in office. You can visit this
web site http://www.sultanofbrunei.com/jefri.htm to verify what I am saying.
However my father was kept under house arrest, his bank accounts and private
properties including a crude oil export refinery were later confiscated by the
sultanate. Furthermore during this unfortunate period, I was advised to
evacuate my immediate family outside the sultanate to avoid further prosecution
from the sultan and his security operatives, but before I could do that I was
placed under house arrest by the Sultan and not access to a phone but I have
a Palm V hand-held computer from which I am sending you this mail.
Some of the guard here are still loyal to me, so they would be my contact with
you if there is any document I need to send to you to enable you collect the
boxes of money on my behalf.
Before my In-castration, I went ahead to dispatch the sum of Five Hundred
Million United States Dollars (US$500,000,000.00) in cash under special
arrangement into the custody of different private security and trust company's
for safe keeping abroad. The money where spited and kept in the following
countries in this proportion: US$ 100 Million is in Switzerland, US$100
Million is in London, US$135 Million is in Holland, US$45 Million is in Spain
and the balance US$US170 Million is in Canada.
Hence I seek your good assistance to invest these funds into profitable
investment in your country to facilitate future survival for my family
abroad. After due deliberation with my aids we have decided to offer 20%
of these funds to you as compensation for your strong cooperation while
5% have been mapped out for both local and international expenses that may
be incurred during this dispensation.
Please I count on your absolute confidentiality, transparency and trust
while looking forward to your prompt reply towards a swift conclusion of
this business transaction.
Many Thanks & May Allah's blessing remain with you.
I remain yours sincerely.
Prince F.W. Bolkiah
