Good Day,

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. There is no way for me
to know whether I will be properly understood, but it is my duty to write
and reach out to you.

My name is Ibrahim Obasanjo, I have a transaction which I will need your
assistant because i have no where else to turn to. So please I will really
appreciate if you can give me your full cooperation, I assure you that you
will smile and be happy for the rest of your life after we finish with this

Without wasting time my first cousin was the former president of the
republic of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, 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 which cannot be accounted for. So therefore, my
cousin Olusegun Obansanjo has giving me the authority to assist him
safe guard some funds, because the way things are going now in Nigeria, I
think he will be jailed again and all the funds he made as a president will
be confiscated.

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.

That is the only reason I am contacting you because I have so much trust in
you because you are not known by any Nigerian or the government. 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 me.

I am willing to compensate you very beautifully if you will assist us, even
my self I am outside Nigeria writing this letter to you because I don’t want
any person apart from your self knowing about this discussion. Me and my
cousin Olusegun Obasanjo has agreed to give you 50% of what ever amount
which you can safe guard for us. If you are ready to assist reply me with

Full Name:
Private Email:

Give me a call with this number for us to talk more +228 9897777.

I will give you more details and tell you how the transfer will commence.

I await to hear from you.

Mr. Ibrahim Obasanjo.
