Given that I am not involved with either the tourist industry or real estate, why would a complete stranger (who claims to be genuine) want my assistance in this project?

Where is my "experience" in either of these industries?

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am looking for your cooperation in building a Tourist Hotel or Real Estate in your country. I am sorry if this is not in line with your profession. I need an experienced person like you to assist me to set up, develop the project and assume responsibility of ownership as chairman but will be bringing in profit /distribute profit monthly or annually.

I shall give you more information.

Please contact me at my private

Nice try, except for the fact that the scammer is illiterate and I don't have an account with Lloyds TSB.
