Dear Sir,<*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
I am pleased to send my compliments to you as I have written to you once but you did not respond and I assumed you went on holiday. I know that this letter will definitely come to you as surprise but please do accept it as a request from a man in need of assistance.
I Actually came about your contact through the Nigerian Chamber of Commerce as I was searching for a reliable, trustworthy and confidential individual who can be of assistance to me. I hope my medium of contact to you, which has been greatly abused, will not in any way contravene your ethics of better judgment.
My name is (Rtd General Mohamed Buba Marwa) I am interested in operating a very viable business as a means of investment abroad. I do not know too well on how this is done in your country, so I will need you to help me in this regard. My preference is any viable business ideas of high profit yields in your country that you can recommend. I will also need you to help me to look for properties like homes and lands for sale as I am proposing to invest the sum of Twenty-Five Million United States Dollars ($25,000,000 USD) for this. I do not know if you can and will be of help to me.
For a brief on my personality; I was a Military Man for the Nigerian Army, the former governor of Lagos state in the southern part of Nigeria and I had worked under the military regimes before my retirement in May 2002. Now I am looking for an investor who can help me to invest my money. The Economy here is bad and above all thus making it difficult for me or foreigners to invest here. I am married with Kids; my need for this business proposition and to acquire these properties is very urgent. Please I expect your good and prompt reply so that we can proceed swiftly.
Please go trough this website http://www.mbmarwa.com/ I will need your phone numbers for easier communication with you if I am unable to access my emails. Email: (firstname.lastname@example.org)
(Rtd) General Mohamed Buba Marwa
