Dear Sir / Madam, I know this email may come to you as a surprise. I came across you while searching for a reliable contact to help hold up a secret investment overseas. I am a Rear Admiral of the Nigerian navy, Rear Admiral Ameen Ikioda, the Moderator at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies Kuru, Nigeria. I intend to make very huge investment in your country. If you have the right connections and abilities to partner with me we can partner. I made a lot of money as the Flag Officer Commanding the Western Naval Command before I was posted to my new post of service. My command intercepted an oil vessel loaded with two million barrel of the Nigerian crude oil, bonny light crude without valid papers, the vessel came into our waters for illegal operation and my command arrested the vessel and the vessel owners settled me and my crew members for the release of the vessel. This money I cannot invest it in my country.I am contacting you as a government official of the republic to give me all necessary assistance. In your country a foreigner canât make investment without at list one indigenous director. As a serving officer I am not allowed by the code of conduct of office to make private investment until am retired.It is very important that you keep this communication very confidential as I have told you of the rule of law that prevents us as serving officers from making private investments so as to prevent corruption and fraud. I am looking forward to hear from you soonest. Please get back to me immediately with your details as follows so we may discuss more. 1. Full Names and address 2. Telephone Regards, Ameen Ikioda
