Dear Friend,
I am Barrister  Daniel Briggs, a consultant based in Nigeria West 

Africa.I represent Her Royal Majesty,Preye Aleto Allagoa,Wife of the 

late King of  Degema kingdom,which is an autonomus and oil 

producing community. She has instructed me to locate a foreigner 

who would act as her fund manager and partner in this business 

which would be of immense benefit to both parties.I want you to 

contact me immediately so that we can proceed with the business. 

She wishes to invest the sum of $8.5 million overseas and needs 

somebody to manage this investment on her behalf. 
She is now sick forsometime now,following phsycological trauma she 

goes through as a result  of their strict tradition which makes it difficult 

for her to associate with anybody until after the burial of her late 

husband. As you may  not be aware,her husband was killed by some 

unknwon people concerning the illegal drilling of oil from their 

community's oil wells which her husband objected  strongly aganist 

and this led to his untimely  death. In the course of the struggle 

aganist bunkering her husband made so many enemies both in the 

government and their immediate community who are now bent on 

making life very difficult for her and her children.Since his demise they 

have been subjected to penury, victmization and neglect You should 

also bear in mind that your assistance/partnership is needed to 

transfer and secure this fund for the investment. She proposes a 

commission of 20% of the sum to you for your expected services and 

partnership.Your response is therefore highly needed so as to stop 

further contact.
I hope this will be the beginning of a prosperous business 

relationship between her family and your family.Nevertheless if you 

are for any reason not interested, kindly inform me immediately so 

that I will look for another contact.I also require your endorsement for 

further details
Awaiting for your quick response. 
Barr. Daniel Briggs
