Sébastien sent a message to Lee Shau-kee Chairman and Managing Director, Henderson Land Development Co. Ltd. – email address that said:
I really hope that Mr. Lee Shau Kee will see this message .
I am a 20 years old French man, and it happens that I love a woman, who lives on the other side of the world, but I cannot see her, I cannot show her that I exist, and, I don't even dare. Because I have nothing. I am living in sadness, but with joy also. Because I prefer her to be happy without me, rather than living in misery in my company.
So, like the miserable beggar that I am, I humbly ask for Mr. Lee Shau Kee to give me 2 million dollars, which is like a penny thrown to a homeless man in the street for him.
I just want to be able to live with her, and to make her the most happiest woman in the world. And in order to have the paperwork to live permanently with her in the US, the fastest way is to invest at least 500 000 in an American company, which I will do as soon as I have the money.
Please, I am begging out of love, and hope...
With all due respect due to you, your name and your work,
