Dear Sir/Madam,

I write based on your impressive profile on the internet, my name is 
Depreye Duke Francis, from the oil rich state in Nigeria (BAYELSA 
STATE), before now I am the personal financial consultant to the former 
governor of the state D.S.P Alameisigha until he was impeached and 
arrested by the Federal Government.

He was arrested in London and charged for money laundering by the 
United Kingdom Government, his arrest was a political setup because in 
the political circle in Nigeria it is rumoured that he had acquired 
immense wealth from oil deals and that his financial status is worth 
$1.8 billion dollars,so he was made a scaped goat by the so called 
political godfathers.Stories about his travails can be read from these 
web sites.
Before this time I was in the verge of transferring by diplomatic 
means $10.5million United States Dollars to a company in the United 
States to start an oil refinery investment which was to be coordinated 
by me, but because of what happened the money was under a very high 
level coded arrangement deposited with finance and security company in 
London for safe keeping during the transit to the Untied States.

As it is now, nobody knows about this money because if known it will 
be seized as all account belonging to the governor had been frozen.
My proposal to you is that I want to invest this fund as my own with 
you as my partner. Now, I want to set up Viable Business Ventures, 
which I hope you will advise me on.Arrangement have been concluded with 
this Financial & Security Company to package the funds in a consignment 
to enable us take it to the your country with the help of a trusted 
Diplomat who will not know the content of the consignment as it is 
termed to contain precious African items, but just to enable the 
consignment have diplomatic immunity so that it will not be opened by 
the customs. 

I am prepared to offer you 25% of the total sum if you assist me in 
receiving the consignment containing the funds from the Diplomat when 
he arrives your country and hold in trust for me pending my arrival to 
meet with you in your country. I will give you the name of the diplomat 
and the day he will be coming with the consignment when you indicate 
your interest.

Please we need to act fast because all the modalities have been put in 
place awaiting an interested, honest individual to help me. If this ok 
by you,get back to me with the information below.

1.Full name
3.Contact phone number 

and I shall put all machinery in to seal the arrangement.

Thanking you in advance in anticipation of your willingness to help.

Best Regards,
Depreye Duke Francis
