M:   MR.ALHAJI USMAN
I have an urgent and confidential business proposal to make you. I do
seriously need your help because I am disabled from a motor accident
and
cannot travel abroad on Doctor’s orders. I was an Oil consultant based
in
the United Kingdom, and because I helped a lot of foreign Crude Oil
Companies to get Crude Oil Lifting Rights and lucrative Oil Contracts
from
Nigeria, I was able to amass a fortune worth about USD30million.
 On 21st December, 2004, I left the UK finally with my family, and came
back
to Nigeria. But because of the unfavourable political and economic
climate
in Nigeria, and for security reasons, I left my money total
USD30million in
a Security Safe Deposit vault in London. On 22nd December, I and my
whole
family was involved in a very bad accident on our way home to our
Village at
Benin, about 700 km from Lagos, Nigeria; I lost my entire family in the
accident, and I myself fell into a coma since then… I eventually
recovered
from coma, and was discharged from the hospital two weeks ago. I have
no
money with which to sponsor any one in Nigeria to undertake the trip
for me;
in any case , my extended family here abandoned me in hospital when
they
realized that the money which I came back with had been spent on
hospital
bills; I am currently  living on the charity of the church.  And now, I
need
your help to collect this money in London and invest it in a profitable
venture abroad; I cannot bring in this money into Nigeria for fear of
seizure by the Government. If the money is properly and profitably
invested
abroad, I intend to leave Nigeria permanently. Can I count on your
help? If
you agree to help me, I will send you by Post/courier the ELECTRONIC
CARD
KEY of my vault so that you can travel to London and open the vault;
You
will then remove the money total USD30 million and transfer it to your
Bank
Account. For your help and assistance, you will keep 25% of the money
for
your self and keep 75% for me in safe custody until I travel to meet
you and
invest my share… If you agree to help me, please reply giving me the
following information:
 1. Your Complete name and Street (POSTAL) address
2. Your Phone and fax number, including mobile
3. Your confidential email address
TO PREVENT THE KEY AGAINST LOSS IN TRANSIT, PLEASE KINDLY STATE YOUR
CORRECT
NAME AND STREET ADDRESS… THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A HOAX! YOU WILL BE ABLE
TO
CONFIRM THAT THIS EMAIL IS A GENUINE 100% LEGITIMATE PROPOSAL, ONCE YOU
REPLY AS ABOVE.
Once I receive your reply stating your street postal address as above,
I
will send you the Safe Deposit Vault Key by EXPRESS MAIL, and I will
also
forward to you more details of this transaction by email. Details will
include the address, contact details of the Safe Deposit Company in
London
where my money is currently stored…
