    ATTENTION:

    REQUEST FOR AN URGENT ASSISTANCE:

    I am Dr. Dan Etete, a former minister of petroleum to the late Head of State of Federal Republic of Nigeria General Sani Abacha. Because of my strategic position in the former Goverment, and also being a close confidant of the Head of State, I was able to acquire personally, the sum of $65,000,000.00USD (Sixty five Million United States Dollars) presently lodged in Union bank of Nigeria plc. I made this money largely through “CONSULTANCY FEE” and Good Faith Fees” paid by foreign oil companies prior to Allocation of Deep Water Oil Blocks and other Lifting/prospecting Right. Nigeria is the 6th largest Producer/Exporter of Crude Petroleum in the World.

    As you are probably aware Nigeria is prone to Political/Economic Instability, hyper Inflation, and among other problems, I have therefore resolved to invest my money abroad, preferable in Real Estate Properties and Importation of Goods for safety and optimum returns on Investments. However, straight transfer of this money into a bank abroad will present two major problems. 1, the tax incidence will be too high, as much as 60% of this money will go up in Taxes, Levies, Penalties etc. 2,As an Ex sevice man in a former military government on which the present democratic government of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is fighting very hard to freeze the accounts of the men that serve in the government of General Abacha. So as a result of Government deliberate restrictions on flight of capital Abroad. The solution is to Courier this money in cash abroad, through Courier Service Company here in Nigeria in conjuction with an embassy here in Nigeria, the money will be packed in a Diplomatic Bag or Carton tagged Diplomatic lauggage which will be address to you.
    This system is secret and the money is therefore
    untraceable. It is the system used by most top
    Government officials in Nigeria to remove their fortunes to safety abroad. I have therefore concluded every arrangement with a Courier Company in Nigeria to Courier this money abroad using the courtesy and safety of Diplomatic Bag.
    All I now need is a honest partner and God fearing fellow who can receive the money on my behalf and help me to invest as aforementioned. There is absolutely no risk involved in this transaction as the money will be delivered to you in United States Dollars Bills.
    If you are intrested in assisting me, please send to
    me by email immediately your preferred contact address
    where this money will be delivered to you, upon
    delivery, you are to lodge this money in a bank
    account and contact me for necessary arrangements for
    the investment. For your help and assistance in this
    deal, you will receive 20% of this money in cash, while you keep the remaining 80% for me till my arrival to your country.

    Finally, if you are willing to assist me, you are to please urgently email your personal phone and fax numbers for easy communication. Your contact address is also required so that i can use it to process the documents for delivery destination. All these are urgently needed before we can go to other necessary details.

    Expecting to hear from you.

    Best regards,

    Dr. Dan Etete.

    I seem to get em almost daily. I guess they really want to give me money. Maybe we should form a fake company and take all these chums to the cleaners!

    actually, this is a pretty scary scam, even if it is old...

    what happens with the *real* suckers is that they end up *flying* to nigeria and either kidnapped & held for ransom, or just flat-out murdered.
    no shit.
    the secret service has a task-force set up to try and get these guys.

    That is referred to by the CIA as "The Nigerian scam" You are supposed to forward those letters to the CIA. There have been people murdered over this stuff, so don't reply to these people or correspond with them in any way. I am listed as acompany officer and I get these things in email and faxes all the time.

    I have never received any email invitations to the Nigerian scam, but I have received several snail mail invitations. the whole scam is to get account numbers then the transfer all of your mone out and into theirs and phone numbers so the can run you phone bill up.
