I recieved this letter, and it lacked every sort of thing that comes with junk mail, and i am just wondering if anyone has seen some sort of mass mailing like this, or if it is actually legit.
ATTR. BOLA IGE CHAMBERS
C/O BARRISTER FRANK OKOJIE.
LAGOS - NIGERIA
Goodday to you. I realize that this might come to you as a surprise, your assistance is been craved. Basically, we have not met before, but please, I beg your indulgence to discretely ponder on this mail as the assistance been requested if granted, will give his family and myself a new beginning and profit you immensely. Now, let me start by introducing myself.
I am Barrister AKIN DELE, the personal secretary of the late Attorney General of Nigera, CHEIF BOLA IGE, who was assasinated by gunmen on the 24th of DEC. 2001. Since after his death, the Government is yet to deliberate on his successor and l am the only person who has possession of the documents to his private Bank Accounts, both home and abroad. Furthermore, his entire family knows this and has put great trust in me
for the safe keeping of these accounts. Presently, all the Lawyers who work in his chambers are being detained including me, we report to the police station and court daily for investigation on his death. I, especially, face daily interrogation about my Boss (BOLA IGE)'s assets and some vital documents. Following the recent discovery of his Bank Account by the Nigerian Government in a Swiss Bank in which the huge sum of US$700 Million and Dutchmark 450 Million were lodged, I therefore decided to contact you in confidence because, I was able to move out the sum of US$28.6 Million, which was secret and is sealed in two Metal Boxes for “security” reasons.
I therefore appeal to you seriously and religiously for your urgent assistance to move this money into your country where I believe it will be safe since the family know and trust me about this and I cannot leave the country due to the restriction imposed on the members of his (late BOLA IGE) Chambers by the Nigerian Government.
You can contact me immediately through E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and l shall arrange with you for a face to face meeting outside Nigeria in order to liaise with you towards effective completion of this transaction.
However, arrangements have been put in place to move this money out of the country in the secret vault through a security company to any country in Europe/America and as soon as you indicate your interest, I and his family shall send you the Air Bill of the Luggage and other related vital documents so that you can help to claim the Luggage.
Conclusively, we have agreed to offer you 15% of the total sum, while 85% is to be held on trust by you until we can decide on a suitable business investment in your country. subsequent to our free movement by the Nigerian Government which l believe will come in due time.
Please reply urgently and treat with absolute confidentiality and utmost secrecy, as it will go a long way in determining his (late attr Gen. BOLA IGE) family’s fate.
Thanking you in anticipation of your favourable response.
