Subject: Dear Friend
The purpose of my writing to you is because i am searching for a foreign
business partner who is in a position to assist me with my urgent business

confidentiality, means and who has the necessary
facilities I require in embarking on this important venture. I decided to
contact you through email as it has remained the only possible means I
consider safe to contact you. I apologize if this is not suitable to you.

Galdian 111 SL Spain Branch. I am contacting you in a non-official capacity.
To provide either an existing bank Account or to set up a new bank account
immediately to receive this money, even an empty account can serve to receive
this money as long as you will remain honest to the transaction.

[$6,000.000.00] upon successful Transfer without any disappointment from
your side, we shall re-apply for the Transfer of the remaining Ten Million
United States Dollars [$10, 500.000.00]

out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing to the Spanish Government.
From my investigations I found out that the owner of this account was
Mr.Robert Hendrickson a foreigner, and an Industrialist, he died since
2006 no other person knows about this account or anything concerning
it except and most probably you as you read this letter.
The account has no beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well
that Mr. Robert Hendrickson until his death was the Managing Director,
I am contacting you as a foreigner because this money can only be approved
to a foreigner with a valid International Passport, Drivers License and
foreign account because the money is in US Dollars and the former owner of
the account Mr. Robert Hendrickson is a foreigner.

down in this business. For your active participation, I have two options
of compensating you.

or you can go into partnership with me for the proper and profitable
investment of the entire money in your country in any lucrative business you
will advise me of. Of course, the investment must be under your direct
management and supervision. As soon
as the money has been transferred into your account, I shall come to your
country and meet you face to face to work out the modalities of the
Please notify me of your choice in your reply. I have also set aside 5% of
the total sum $16.5M for all kinds of expenses that may come our way in
the process of this transaction. Please note that this 5% for expenses is
not with me at the moment but shall be deducted
from the money as soon as you have received it in your account. Be
informed that this transaction is risk free as all modalities have been
put in place for a hitch free transaction.
