My reason of getting in contact with you, pertains the sole aim of accommodation, in Funds transfer. My community in the Delta State of Nigeria is the area with the largest oil deposit in Nigeria, 75% of the oil export of Nigeria originates from my local government, but inspite of this fact my community has been all the while neglected by the federal Govt. of Nigeria and Shell Petroleum PLc. (the main oil co. in the area) The community chief ( Abed Ogbemudia) sued the Govt. and Shell Plc. at the international court of justice in the Haag, Netherlands, we were asking for Compensation,we however got a judgement asking the Govt for compensation,which offcorse was not honoured, hence we took to arms.It is a battle ground now in my local govt. The Shell PLc. however decided to settle out of court and have paid us a sum of 21,7million USD (twenty one million seven hundred thousand us dollars) as reperations to my community. We as the financial body of the community decided to accept the widow`s mite we were offered, hence my anticipated contact with you. Principally i need an honest man with just an account where this fund could de deposited and the assurance of getting it when it is done. I and my associates will retrieve this fund on your confirmation of it`s arrival in your account.

We have decided on a total of 20% of the fund as your renumeration,which i believe will be worth your while,the rest we will thankfully take and distribute to my community members.This proposal is from my point of view risk free for you.and please handle it as confidential, the details i will put at your disposal as soon as i am furnished with your tel. and fax numbers.
