Dear beloved one,

I am john cousin to Mr.Tafa Balogun former Inspector
General of Police, Federal Republic of Nigeria who retired last
year due to the misapropriation of fund in his ministry to the
tune of Five Billion US Dollars in which EFCC (Economic Financial
Crime Comission) set up by the President Olusegun Obasanjo. He
was sentenced to a four-year jail term by a Federal High Court
sitting in Abuja recently.


There are some substantial amount worth sixteen million eight
hundred thousand US dollars [$16,800,000.00
Million US Dollars]
in which my uncle left in my care being the eldest cousin of the
family which i have deposited in one of the bank in London city bank. I
thereby seek a trusted foreign partner who is ready and capable to
get the money out of the bank

The best gets better. See why everyone is raving about the All-new Yahoo! Mail.
