Complement of the season.
I am Dr. Ibrahim Badamosi, a retired minister for petroleum and industries in the federal republic 
of Nigeria. I am ageing and precisely at seventy-five years now.

I have a life-time business proposal which I am advancing to you presently. I was able to use my 
very high positions in various offices to arrange some good sum of money  to the tune of 
1.500.000.00Euro [E1.5MILLION] in a Swiss bank. This happens to be my life savings. It is most 
shocking to know that, with this huge sum of money, I have no single "CHILD" of my own.

I have so viewed these stagering political and economic situations in present day Nigeria, and 
arrived at this conclusive decision to sell all my industries in Nigeria, principally due to the 
alarming rates of dishonesty and instability. I am most dissilussioned whenever i think of what has 
become of my so-called Nigeria, which supposed to be the only giant of Africa.

I should rightly inform you that, this sum of ONE MILLION,FIVE HUNDRED  THOUSAND EURO 
[E1,500,000.00] has already been deposited in a special dedicated account  in a bank in Swiss. I 
would want to establish a considerable business with part of this E1,5..,000.00, while thirty-five 
percent  profit of "it" should be pumped into charity homes. I would also expect that, you should 
assist me open a bank account as at when due so that, ten percent of this sum of money should be so 
deposited into it for my upkeep.

Conclusively, if you accept to render this assistance with any condition[s], you should immediately 
inform me so that, I can direct you to my solicitor  who is presently in Europe, for paper 
processings. This would eventually pave way for possible transfer of this E1,500,000.00 into your 
given bank account.

You are free to contact me on this my private telephone line : 00234.80.5580712 for more details.

Your genuine cooperation would be most appreciated.

Best Regards.
Dr. Ibrahim Badamosi. [Ph.d., Ms.c., Bs.c Ll.b]
