So my beloved Nigerian (may or maynot be Nigerian, but reputations persist) sent me this email. What else could i do but reach for my wallet? What? Have you no heart?
I NEED YOUR URGENT ASSISTANCE!
How are you today, hope fine. Please this is an invitation for partnership.Can you in all sincerity partner with me?it is legal and 100% risk free.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $10.6 million US Dolars. In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in a Car Bamb Blast in Irag.
Since his supposed next of kin died along side with him at the Bomb blast, there is nobody to claim the left over balance in the account. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department decided to seek your assistance and present you to the bank as his Next of kin.
If you accept I would give you the guide lines of how we can achieve this transfer of the balance (10.6Million Dollars) to your account, And we will share the money 50-50%.
I expect that you will give me your telephone and fax numbers for easy communication with you and for more details.
Mr Ahmed Bello.
