Dear Sir, I apologize for intruding into your privacy. It is due to the dire situation that I am facing. My name is Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT-Abuja, Nigeria) during the government of President Olusegun Obasanjo, which handed over to the Yar` Adua government (current) in 2007. I have some money I want you to receive, invest and manage for me in safety and confidentiality till my situation is resolved. Your gender and occupation does not matter. And you donít have any reason to fear and worry on your side. I deposited the fund in my name, by myself and for myself. The fund is free from drugs, terrorism, or money laundering. The amount is US$16Million (Sixteen Million United States Dollars), which I quietly deposited cash (in the vault) with a private security and vaults company. I will disclose the location and more information to you as soon as you indicate your readiness to assist. As you know, it would require me to issue a power of attorney in your favor to put you in the legal position to retrieve and manage the fund on my behalf. So send me the following items urgently: 1. Your full name and address 2. Your cell phone number 3. The picture page of your international passport. Those are the items I need to issue the Power of attorney to empower the security company to release my deposit (US$16M) to you immediately. You would keep 10% of the US$16Million as your compensation, and another 5% to compensate for your expenses. I may require you to invest and manage the remaining 85% for me till the near future, to enable me sustain my family on the profit from such investment. Having said that, I hope you would not turn against me as soon as this deposit is released to you. This has been giving me lots of worries and concern. This is because this US$16M is all I have for my family. The current Government framed and accused me of corruption and mismanagement of over US$300M (Three Hundred Million U.S. dollars) being proceeds from the sales of Government properties in the Federal capital territory, Abuja, in accordance to the governments monetization policy during my time as a minister. They are doing this because when I was the minister, I stepped on some powerful toes by revoking their illegally acquired land titles, and I demolished the illegal structures they built in contravention of the Abuja master plan. Unfortunately for me, their political camp won the last presidential election and they are in strategic positions now. So they are using their positions to torment me. Please read the following article: The Government has frozen all my accounts in Nigeria and seized all my properties since I left the country. I was initially staying in the USA but later decided to relocate to UK where I am staying now. United Kingdom has no extradition treaty with Nigeria and British government knows that the charges are politically motivated and has therefore accommodated and supported me here as a political refugee. Please call me or email me urgently. at: Yours sincerely, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai Cell: +44 703 188 3994
