Greetings. Kindly permit me to solicit for your assistance for a business relationship, by establishing a trust agreement with you where you shall hold, manage, invest our funds in your country, under a term of the trust agreement. May I introduce myself to you? I am the first son of Chief Dr. James Ibori former Governor of Delta State, the oil producing zone in the Eastern part of Nigeria . If you are conversant with International news about the political situation and governance in Nigeria in recent time, you may have heard that my father Chief Dr. James Ibori was arrested in Dubai recently while seeking for political Asylum and later extradited by the British Government to face money laundering and other related charges in London . All these false charges leveled against my father were masterminded by my father’s political opponents headed by the present civilian President Dr. Good Luck Jonathan. You can get the true information of this story if you go through googlesearch.com (News about James Ibori). Presently my entire family has become victims of political intimidation, victimization and oppressions and our entire traveling document have been seized by the government. To this end, the present government has liaised with British government to seize all my fathers’ properties/funds both in Nigeria and overseas. For this reason, I am seeking for your consent urgently to help my family to secure the remaining funds valued at US$23 million which my father deposited with a private Security/Finance Company abroad. Nobody is aware of these deposited funds except you and my family and we don't want anybody that knows my family to be aware of this transaction and fund, to avoid betrayal. All the legal documents you will use to claim the dep You will be entitled to take 30% of the total sum (US$23 million) after completion of this transaction. If you need further clarification, I will provide an answer to you but kindly keep this matter very confidential. For easy communication, you should give me your private telephone number and address. I am looking forward for your reply. Yours sincerely, Henry James Ibori
