Dear:Sir/Madam, Compliments of the day to you. I am Dr. (Mrs.) Dame Patience Jonathan GCFR), wife to the Ex- President of Nigeria who hand over government to an Opposition Government on the 29th of May, 2015. I am contacting you in confidence, and as a means of developing a cordial and fruitful business relationship. I currently have within my reach, the sum of twenty Five million United States Dollars, which I and my children intends to use for investment purposes specifically in your country. This money came as a result of a payback contract deal between my husband and a Russian firm in our countryâs multi-Billion Dollar Ajaokuta Steel Plant. The Russianâs returned my husbandâs share of US$25,000,000.00 after his hand over to the Opposition Government, and i lodged it in Citibank of London, United Kingdom. Right now, the New government of Muhammadu Buhari has intensified their probe on MY familyâs financial resources; frozen all our known local accounts, revoked our oil licenses, pending the outcome of their investigations. In view of these facts, I acted fast to deposited the US$25,000,000.00 in a private security account of which I alone know of itâs existence. I have since declared the security account bankrupt. No record whatsoever exists concerning this money traceable by the new government of Nigeria, because there is no documentation showing that we received the money from Russians. Therefore the current situation in my country concerning governmentâs attitude towards my family, it has become quite impossible for us to make use of this money within. I thus wish to discretely transfer this money out of London with your help, to be invested in your country (under your professional guidance), and to help start operation in an Oil Refinery which my Husband built in Brazil before 2011 Presidential General election. I shall expect you to contact me urgently to enable us discuss this transaction in details. Perhaps 40% to you and 55% to my family, while 5% goes to any expenses during the transaction, I want you to contact my Personal Attorney Mr.Bello Ali through his below information to direct you on how the Citibank of London will release the fund to you. Moreover,i also want you to fill the appropriate form immediately.  Full Names:_____________  Contact address_________  Direct Telephone No: ____ |4| Occupation : _______ Finally, you are here by advised to call Barrister Bello Ali on his private phone number +2348168426129, to enable him forward your contact information to the Bank for immediate release of the funds as the Next of Kin to my family.
