Dear Friend, My name is Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, the immediate past Minister for Petroleum Resources from Federal Republic of Nigeria. However, I am on hospital bed receiving treatment now after I was diagnosed with cancer few months ago. However, this type of cancer has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only left my faith in the hands of Almighty God. As a result of this, I have made peace with my heart and have also decided to give back to the word/society in general to make it a better place for both rich and poor. You can read more about me on the internet but note that whatever I am telling you here/now is between the both of us. Furthermore, I want to give out the sum of US$18,500,000 only for charity, you are to keep 12 percent of the total sum. Also, I want you to retrieve this money and use it well. This money will be transferred to you in cash or via bank wire transfer from around the globe through a security company, diplomatic/courier delivery or bank(s) so long as you are interested to receive it. You will get more details about how to retrieve the money as soon as you send me the following details. Name in full: Contact home/office address: Tel/Fax#: E-mail: Age: Sex: Marital Status: Company name and address where you work. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Contact my attorney Barr. Femi Oladipo on Email: email@example.com How will you like to spend the money:? Regards, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke
