Re: Trusted Partner For Investment/Safekeep Dear Friend, It is with humility that I am writing you, to solicit that you come to our RESCUE. I am Mrs.Margaret Alamieyeseigha wife of the deposed Governor of Bayelsa state in Nigeria,Diepreye Alamieyeseigha who jumped bail in Britain and was latter arrested and detained in Nigeria. Presently, he is standing trial for money- laundering charges in Nigeria. On the 7th day of July 2006,the British government returned an equivalent of .8M USD seized from our home in England late last year.Arising from the above, I quickly relocated our money,which is an equivalent of 28M USD from the UK to another country in Europe. This is to prevent further discovery of my family fund by the Nigerian government. Following this, I was advised by my children to seek the partnership of a trustworthy foreigner who can take custody of the $28m USD from where it is presently been lodged for safe-keeps. In view of this, I decided to seek for your assistance in claiming and safely keeping this fund I had relocated.It is reckoned that the involvement of a foreigner like you to safe keep this money will leave no trace to us or to my husband by the Nigerian Government. We do hope we have found a trustworthy and reliable partner in you to help us safe keep this money cause it is all we have right now considering the fact that every other thing we had before the arrest of my husband have since been confiscated. If you agree to assist my family in this transaction, you shall be compensated with 30% of the fund. We shall reserve 5% to defray any expenses that shall be incurred in actualizing and perfecting this transaction.The balance 65% shall be kept by you for my family.If you want to assist us,please accompany your replywith your name,contact address,Telephone number, so that I can refer you to our family attorney who will give you more details.
