  Information

I advertised a property for sale to which Harry Smith responded with the following message

"Hello,
I am interested,Is it the guide price or the actual price?Kindly get back to me via email.
Regards"
I replied to his enquiry as follows:

"Hi Harry,
The price you see is the actual price but is negotiable."

He then followed up with his reply as follows

Hope this email finds you well.I am contacting you because I have need for your urgent cooperation.I am representing a family that has given me the
mandate to help find a reasonable and profitable investment structure. They have just inherited huge fund from their predecessor, and they have agreed to invest
this money in the next 5 years for a good Return On Investment(ROI). I have been given authority to appoint a reliable international investor to invest this fund
so I need to be sure that I can trust whoever I am presenting to the family. I am working hand in hand with a financial expert/compliance officer who will guide us
through a certified and legal process. The amount in question is £12.5 million GBP,I want to present you as a foreign investor and authorize for the money to
be moved to you in your country.You will be given full authority to handle the investment,I need someone I can trust and I need to be assured on my following concerns;
Can I trust you with the fund?
Can you keep a secret?
Can you help me find a good investment for the fund?
What areas of investment will you recommend?
What % share will you want to take for assisting me?
This is a very legal transaction and everything will be coordinated in black and white. The essence of secrecy cannot be underestimated because a lot of money is involved.
Let me know if we can work together.
I await your early news.
Warm Regards,
Harry
