 Dear Sir/Madam,

I must thank you in anticipation for having time to read this mail. In my own conviction, a mail in this manner may appear to be junk because of the little drama that characterize the whole story. It is a true-life story that has no ending but uncivilized in nature. The bottom line here is that, we are being punishing by the sins of our father who the government sideline because of corruption in public office.

It takes a man with different perception to life, a man with the love of God and humanity to pay credence to this mail. You see, 18 months ago, my father was a former governor in one of the states in Niger-delta region in Nigeria. It is quite unfortunate that he is presently behind-bars for alleged corruption and mismanaged or looting of government treasury. This problem started in 2006 when my father jumped bail in London for money laundry charges. This ugly incidence warranted the State House of Assembly to impeach him, then appointed his deputy as the governor of the state. It is sad to note that, since the impeachment of my father, the government had been frozen any account related to him, his wife and children both local and foreign immediately they discovered it. To this,subjecting the family to untimely poverty.

I am 20 years old, an undergraduate student in one of the Universities in Nigeria with 4 of my younger siblings in secondary schools. My mother died 3 months ago as a result of heart failure, life has been so miserable for us, for every step we take is being monitored by security operatives of Economic and Financial Crime Commission.

Recently, the only remaining bank in Nigeria that confided with the family has instructed us {out of fear} to pullout the money deposited in their bank within 3 weeks of this notice. According to the bank, they said, the Federal Government had invited them for questioning and threaten to close the bank if they find out that the family had an account with the bank. My father open these accounts in my mother's name and I during his tenure as governor and we have no alternative than to transfer this money to a server account in overseas especially the country that has no or less attention to the government. The problem is, which account are we transferring these amounts to? This problem is an impediment to our life fulfillment today. So, I am begging you in the name of God and humanity to kindly allow this money to be transfer into your account. The two accounts worth $3.5 million as in $2 million and $1.5 million respectively. We cannot afford to let the bank confiscate these accounts that is why it is necessary to transfer it by all means. I got your contact on email search and I was touched to choose you out of 10 other people. Sir, you are more or less the friend of the family who is seeing to our well-being.

To this, you shall be sending money to us from the intending deposited amount in your account through Western Union Money Transfer whenever we needs money. Then, buy a house (worth $200,000) in our name in case we intend to relocate. My younger siblings and I have agreed to part the sum of $300,000 for this kind-gesture and $150,000 for any expenses the person might make. You are now like a father to us which means you will not by any means alert to the government of Nigeria or your country or relate to and person(s) or group of person(s) regarding to this account. If you do, then you have rendered us useless in life. Please if you are not down with this because of one reason or the other. Please kindly assist in getting someone you trust. Your immediate response will pave way in hiring a lawyer and effect transfer of this fund. Will prefer email communication for security reasons.

May God bless you and your family for having a place in your heart to assist me.

Miss Sofia Alamaesiya.
