Mrs Janet Obaseki
Flat 8 Block 12 NNPC Quarters
Garki -Abuja, Nigeria.
I presume this letter will come to you as a surprise, but as things unfold,we will know each other better. I will start by introducing myself to you. I am Mrs Janet Obaseki, the wife of Chief Jackson Gaius Obaseki, the Managing Director, and Chief Executive, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). I am really sure that you will be of a good assistance after going thoroughly through this letter. For many years of marriage now between me and my husband, I have not given birth, and this has really troubled my husband. As a result of the respect given to local tradition culture and custom here in Nigeria, my husband has decided to break the marriage.
With the situation of things with me now, my matrimonial home look bleak. I am been threatened daily by my husband to get out from the home. My Husband's brothers are not left out in this matter. This situation has really affected me psychologically. As at now, I am no longer Assured of a matrimonial home, hence I seek your urgent assistance and help which I know will go a long way in getting me settled finally. I want to use this opportunity to move the sum of (US$18M) into your custody for safe keeping, pending my arrival in your country. This said amount was given to my husband as gratification from some Foreign Oil Companies he helped in getting Allocation for the Drilling of Crude Oil in N igeria. As a civil servant, he does not want to be exposed, hence he gave me this money to keep in my personal account so that he can be exonerated from the eyes of government security operatives and the Civil Service Commission (CSC) which is a body that scrutinizes the activities of all civil servants in Nigeria as checks and balances for official misconduct.
Be informed that this money is not connected with drugs; money laundry, firearms and looting which I believe will put fears in you to render the required assistance needed from you and consequently withdrawing your help for security reasons. Hence the source of this said money is clean and clear. This money was deposited in my personal name, and there is no way it can be transferred telegraphically under the banking procedures which could have been the easiest, but because of monetary transfer restriction by the Federal Government of Nigeria, that is defeated. Rather I have arranged a diplomat manager to move this money out in cash to any destination where it will be easy for you to collect under diplomatic immunity.
This he has assured me of. As a soon as I see your response and willingness to help as regards to this, I will furnish you on the next line of action to take, but be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free, and my husband will not raise any alarm because he will not like to put himself, his job and office in jeopardy, and if he does, he stands the change of loosing his job. As soon as this money is moved to you, and you confirm to me that you have received it, I will be coming to meet you up there in your country where I wish to live the rest of my life. I will be offering you 20% of this money for all your help at this time of need, while some percentages has been set aside for my Brother to complement his efforts here.
Be informed that this transaction will not last more than 14 working days and it will be concluded because every arrangement has been put in place. Your negative or positive response will be highly appreciated.
Mrs Janet Obaseki.
