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.

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 transaction. 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.
