Example - Wu Kwon, Korea.
Mr. Wu Kwon, a defector from North Korea to South Korea wants
you to invest his money in "your Country". A nice simple scam, he has even
written it generically, so he can cut-and-paste and send the exact same email to
anyone in the U.S., Canada or Europe. What an efficient scammer!
Below is a real example of a fake business proposal.

My name is Mr Wu kwon from Korea and I would like you to guide me through the most viable investment opportunities in your Country. Alternatively, I can invest in your line of business if you are interested and if your line of business is viable.
I am one of the defectors from the north and I am currently residing in South Korea. I have been in this Country for sometime now. Before defecting from the North, I was into currency exchange business and I was always travelling to other parts of Asia and Europe and during that period, I was able to move out my funds and deposit it in a vaulting company in EUROPE.
I want to invest this funds in your Country with your help and advice because we are being treated as foreigners here. A lot of defectors now go on to Canada or the United States and some parts of Europe to live.

I will expect your response together with your contact details, preferably your private telephone number so that I can discuss further and additional details.
