Dear Friend, I am Marcus Ibori, I am 17 years old student of Delta State University (Abraka), and the first son of Chief James Ibori who was the Governor of Delta State (Oil Producing State) in Nigeria in the last dispensation. While my father was in service, he used various names of his children to keep huge sums of money in different Financial Security Firms home and abroad. Presently, my father is been taken by the men of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of Nigeria for charges of corrupt enrichment and money-laundering while in office. Some of his assets and money in some accounts known to the government have been seized. I want you to help me stand in as beneficiary to some huge money so that the money can be transferred to you as a foreigner. I need you to invest this money on some good and profitable business of your choice or for buying of viable properties in your jurisdiction for the Ibori family. If you are interested in helping us, upon your reply, I shall introduce you to our family lawyer for further dealings. We shall also spell out what your share will be for assisting us as the beneficiary to this fund and how we are to compensate you in any investment you decide to do with the funds. Reply me via my private email as below: email@example.com. Best regards Mr. Marcus Ibori.
