I am Charlie Dibia, former military attaché (with the rank of General) in the Embassy of the Fed. 
Rep. of Nigeria, Spain. Though, the Ambassador was my boss, in reality, my job is military 
Ambassador, and I was responsible for all Nigerian military matters and reported directly to my 
Commanding Officer in Nigeria.
My main assignment was the rocurement and purchase of military hardware, weapons and ammunitions. 
Because arms dealers frequently sell to both sides in a conflict, their preferred mode of payment 
was CASH; Millions of Dollars routinely was sent to me via Diplomatic Courier Bags to pay for 
weapons and ammunitions, and other hardware, tanks, light trucks etc&#8230;over time I was able to 
keep aside the total sum of US$40million in the  Madrid Embassy Vault.  I kept the money locked in 
2 big trunks, labeled as my PRIVATE  PROPERTY; This ensured that no one ever opened it.

In  November 2001, I was recalled back to Nigeria and wrongly accused of lootting to over throw the 
Government of Nigeria! I was instantly court-martialed and jailed for 4  years!  I just finished my 
term for wrongful imprisonment, and was set free two weeks ago. 

I was informed that I had been dismissed from the Army WITHOUT Pension or Gratuity! My 
International Passport was seized for "security reasons", and to make matters worse my bank Account 
with First Bank Nigeria  Ltd., having over US$500,000.00 on current deposit was seized by the 
Government  for "security reasons". 

I was therefore effectively reduced to NOTHING! Right now, I have no money, and no means to make a 
living. My only HOPE now is the money in Madrid, Spain, in the Embassy Vault! I have made a call to 
my contact at the Embassy, and my 2 TRUNKS are still there intact! And they are legally mine! I 
have the option of requesting them to be sent to me  here in Nigeria, but it is highly probable 
that the  Customs will open it and instantly confiscate it! I therefore need a reliable and trust 
worthy person who can travel to Madrid, Spain to get my money for me. My contact person at the 
Embassy DOES NOT KNOW that the Trunks contain any money! I will therefore give you a letter of 
Authority/Power of Attorney to present to the Madrid Embassy contact enable you legally 
represent me in Madrid, Spain and claim the 2 Trunk Boxes of money; I will also give you  the 
original DEPOSIT CERTIFICATE of the 2 Trunk Boxes, and the contact will simply bring out the 2 
Trunks from the Embassy and give them to you! Simple! You will open the Trunks to confirm that they 
contain the money as I said. SEEING IS BELIEVING! You will then arrange to open an account in any 
Bank in Europe and deposit ALL the money! You may also wish to take the 2 Trunks back to your 
Country and gradually deposit the cash in small amounts into your Bank Account. I look forward to a 
favorable response from you through my private  email {}

If you agree to undertake this 100% legal and risk free mission for me, you will keep 25% 
(US$10million) of the money, and keep 75% (US$30million) for me. You will please keep my share in 
safe custody until I arrive your Country to claim it. If you are interested, please reply 
immediately, giving me the following information, and in my reply I will give you more details:

(a)  Your Complete name and address

(b)  Your Telephone and fax numbers including mobile phone

Best regards,

Charlie Dibia
