My name is John Meriwether and I am a very wealthy financier in Greenwich, Conneticut, the economic capital of US. I have been managing investment funds for welthy business associates, taking advantage of relative value arbitrage strategies. This is 100 per cent guaranteed safe way to make double digit investment returns every year and was revealed only to me by internationally renowned Nobel prize winning economists. My track record – with LTCM and JWM Partners – speaks for itself.

I have now identified new investment opportunity, that has caused the need for another big transfer of funds. If you would assist me in this, it would be most renumerative to you.  Sir, I am honourably seeking your assistance. I need the funds as quickly as possible. I am offering a double digit return on these funds, net of my 2 and 20.
