No.107A Ziks Ave, Awka, Anambra State, Nigeria. Dear Sir/Madam, INTRODUCTION TO A CRUDE OIL BUSINESS. My name is Chukwukeluo Obuagbaka from Umukwa Village in Awka, Anambra state, Nigeria. I write to introduce to you a genuine crude oil business in my country. As you know Nigeria is known for oil, so this is the reason why I bring this to you. I only stand as an agent to this business. This is outside OPEC oil dealings in Africa. So if you are interested in this business or have somebody who will, please do not hesitate to inform me. This is not a scam. There will be no form of payment to anybody till your vessel is loaded and is being confirmed. This is a bank to bank transaction with government of Nigeria, licensed lifters that sells the crude oil. I also have an oil block for sale. Your attorney may as well be involved if you like. We all know that some Nigerianís are known for duping or defrauding(spamming) of people internationally but this is not a scam,it`s genuine. All I need from you is to come down to Nigeria either with Interpol or with our country EFCC or police for us to meet face to face and if this is not real you have the right to arrest me on the process in order to refund you back your traveling expenses. Please you must be an oil dealer or have the sense of oil business in order to understand what I mean. This is not a business for children of 20 to 30 years of old. Only two major things are required in this business and they are as follows:- 1;A letter of bank guarantee from your bank that you are capable of lifting two million barrels of crude oil(Bonny Light) 2;Your vessel(ship) particulars or chatter party agreement indicating that you have a vessel that can lift two million barrels. Once you have these two things in place and it is confirmed that you have the resources of lifting, the vessel will be loaded within 24 hours. I will like us to talk on phone if you are interested in this deal and I will give you the requirement which does not require any form of upfront payment to either me or anybody but you must be capable of buying or have somebody who deals on crude oil. Yours truly, Chukwukeluo Obuagbaka. 08030857196.
