Greetings, How are you today? I am Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha the former Governor of Bayelsa State of Nigeria. I wish to discuss a business with you based on safeguarding my funds into your bank account for investment in your country. This deal will be highly private with both of us for my security reasons because I was accused by my Government over an allege money-laundering in London.
