Thanks for replying my mail and considering my business
I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail
confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a
result of my communication with you. You have to understand that I am contacting
you independently without the knowledge of anyone, so privacy is highly
important in our discussion.
I wrote in my first mail, my name is Hosny Khamis and I’m one of the assistant
to Mr Habib el-Adly who was the interior minister up till January of this year.
One of my duties as an assistant to Mr el-Adly is in charge of his finance
management. During the start of the revolution in Egypt, I realised it was going
to be a successful revolution and know that once its all over – there is every
possibility that my boss is going to be investigated for corruption and all this
assets including his bank accounts freezed. So I acted fast based on my
intuition, he has about 30 million dollars in one of his bank account with a
bank in the Netherlands which I have access to. I
quickly transferred $22,500,000 (22.5 million dollars) of that money to another
offshore account in the country (Netherlands) which I opened with my contact
person in the bank so that the money cannot be linked to Mr
expected, immediately after the revolution my boss’s foreign bank accounts have
being freezed and he is under investigation. And luckily for me, the money I
transferred to the offshore bank account without my boss’s knowledge is all
that’s left for me to start my life. However, I have to transfer the money out
the Netherlands and I can’t transfer with
my name so that it doesn’t cause suspicion as all my boss’s former employees are
all under watchful eye by the authority too. That’s why I need someone that can
help me transfer this money from the Netherlands to his bank account in
However before I furnish you with more information about the bank and
how we will transfer the money your bank account in your country. I will like to
know if you are interested in helping me with this business, in which I propose
that we share the money with you receiving 40% and me 60% after the money get to
your country. I will like you to tell me about yourself and what you do because
I will like to know if you have the stature to handle this kind of huge
transaction. Please also send me any form of identification because one has to
be careful of not falling into the hands of cons and scammers. I am sorry if
it’s embarrassing for me asking for your information and identification because
I have to be very careful. I will also want you to act fast so that we can
finish this transaction by next week because I want the money to be transferred
I sent you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences,
but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success
and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. So if you are not
interested, please delete this mail and forget that we had this communication.
Do not betray my confidence as I am looking forward to hearing from
