Subject: GOODDAY MY DEAR
Forgive this unusual manner of contacting you,but this particular letter is
of exceptional and very private nature.There is absolutely going to be a
great doubt and distrust in your heart in respect of this email, coupled
with the fact that,so many miscreants have taken possession of the Internet
to facilitate their nefarious deeds, thereby making it extremely difficult
for genuine people to get attention and recognition.
I am Mr.Ibrahim Obansanjo and a cousin to Chief Olusegun,I have a
transaction which I will need your assistant because I have no where else to
turn to based on the time frame. So please I will really appreciate if you
can give me your full cooperation, I assure you that you have no regrets
whatsoever in working with me in this project as I am very sure that you and
your will ever remain grateful for the rest of your life.
Without wasting time my first cousin was the former president of the
republic of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obansanjo, after he handed over to the
new president, a lot of probes has been going on for him to come and make
account for a lot funds ($US25 Billion) which cannot be accounted for during
his tenure as the president of the Republic of Nigeria for eight years.
As you must have read in the Nigerian daily newspapers, the ministry of
petroleum was directly under his office and a lot of juicy contracts were
awarded without being executed and from what my cousin told me in
confidence, most of this funds were siphoned and deposited in various
foreign countries.It was because of the purpose of my cousin protecting the
wealth he single handily made Y'radua the President of Nigeria but as soon
as he became the president, he joined the opposition based on this, my
cousin Olusegun Obansanjo has giving me the authority to assist him safe
guard some funds as the government of Nigeria has frozen most of his account
and based on the way things are going now in Nigeria polity , I think he
will be jailed again and all the funds he made as a president will be
All his colleague and his vice president, CBN Governor, Minister of finance
and Accountant General of the federation, all this people are now under
house arrest, so we need to act as quick as possible. My cousin told me
where he kept some funds which he wants me to safe guard for him, he asked
me to look for a foreigner who is not known or related to us in any means
either a man or a woman, a person who is not going to betray us or expose us
to the present Nigerian government and he assured me that as soon as the
funds are moved in your name, that it will remain sealed for life.
That is the only reason I am contacting you because I because you are not
known by any to our famliy. So my good friend if you will assist us to safe
guard some funds until this problem is over, I will want you to get back to
You will invest the funds for a period of ten years and you will be entitled
to 100% of the profit for the said period so that my cousin will be able to
sort himself out with the government. After the expiation of the said
period, you will come down to 50% of the profits while the rest remains
chief Obasanjo's own. Please get back to me for more details.
Mr. ibrahim Obansanjo.
