ATTN: , Compliment of the seasons, My Name is Williams AKU, the son of Late Ishaya Mark Aku the former Minister of sport in Nigeria, I am 28Year-Old-Nigerian in possession of my Late dad's properties. I lost him in a plane crash during his trip from a Sport Festival. Since his death, I have been in charge of his business and properties and I have got no problem with that since I have been doing that before his death. I received a letter from one of his bank in Nigeria recently notifying me of a payment worth 9 Million dollars made into his account by a computer firm Named "IF Computer GmbH Cecinastr" 37D-82205 Gilching Germany. The money as I read is the Balance payment from a computer business he engaged in with the Federal Government of Nigeria during the NIGHA 2002(NIGERIA/GHANA NATION'S CUP CO-HOST). As a result of this notification I have written a letter through my Lawyer to the bank to deposit the Money into a vault House in Europe, in which I have successfully carried out in the last two month. Since I am his next of kin, it was so easy for me in doing this without the knowledge of my family members. I want to try as much as possible to transfer his money out of this Vault House before my family members got to know about this, because if they know about it, it will be entitle to them as culture permit know that this issue is a very sensitive one and it should not be discuss on the net. Why don't you send me your phone #and your Fax #, so that I will get in touch with you .This deal is a risk free one and your gain shall be 25% of this money provided you co-operate with me. Remember not to tell anybody about this because my daddy happens to be very popular person even after his death. I will be very grateful if you can assist and both parties, you can get back to me via this email address. WILLIAMS AKU.
