My name is Mr. Frank Wood; I am the personal assistant to Mrs. Cecilia Ibru, The former chief executive director of Oceanic Bank Plc, who was convicted for economic and financial crime by Nigeria Government. Her assets and property estimated at N191billion has already been confiscated.
Prior to this period, Mrs. Cecilia Ibru, instructed me to move the sum of (US$10,000,000.00) to a security & finance company abroad with the assistance of a diplomat, to avoid being confiscated by the government.
Therefore, I am seeking for trusted/reliable person that will assist Mrs. Cecilia Ibru, to claim the fund from the security & finance company where the funds is currently deposited and lodge it into trusted bank account for a joint business venture.
If you are willing to assist Mrs. Cecilia Ibru, please indicate your interest by getting back to me as soon as you receive this message, so that I will give you the contact information of the security & finance company and the necessary document that will enable you claim the fund on behalf of Mrs. Cecilia Ibru.
Please be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free as we have contracted a diplomat who will guide you in claiming the fund from the company. Mrs. Cecilia Ibru, has instructed me to offer you 20% of (US$10,000,000.00) due to assistance that you are going to render, while 80% would be for Mrs. Cecilia Ibru.
Please do not disclose this transaction to anyone that would betray the trust that we repose in you as this fund is the only hope that Mrs. Cecilia Ibru, has for survival due to the fact that all her asset and properties has already been confiscated by the government. For a proper verification, I refer you to this
