I recieved a string of e-mails starting with the attached:
Thank you for your mail and your
willingness to be
of great assistance in securing fund for my family.
Hence, let me advise you as regarding my preferred modus operandi
in getting fund to you hitch free:
1. That, when I decided to move these
consulted my wife. We agreed that Americans are more
trust worthy in recent time especially in a deal like
this. She brought your email address and 14 others
from the Internet. When we took them to our marabou
as in our native culture and tradition, the
marabou after his prayers pointed your name as a
trust worthy Person,hence my contacting you.
2. That the Modus operandi of getting
this fund is
simple. The fund at the moment is at the custody of a
reputable security firm, "GLOBAL FINANCE & SECURITY LTD",
GFSL, here in Lagos, Nigeria.
3. That the GFSL, will be responsible
for the transportation of fund outside
the shores of Nigeria, through their diplomatic facility to any of their bonded
warehouse in the following geographical Areas or your convinent location
suitable for you to take delivery.
That upon taking delivery of package,they
will advice and help you
open/establish an account with any of thier "friendly banks" where the funds
will be deposit in your favour. From there you can then move it in bits to your
own country via international telegraphic transfer (Wire transfer). As a
wire transfer from this end is not visible for security reasons, considering
that fact that all international money transfers are been monitored by our apex
banking institution, and government regulating bodies.
4. That, you have to feel free as
this money is no
drug related money or any illicit related money. This
is clean money, and the source of fund is as stated in my first
email to you. (A parting gift from my former C in C).
5. It may interest you to know that
due to the
Obsolete banking system here. Most of the
Diamond and Gold funds are being moved to
U.S.A/Europe/Asia/Middle East/Australia etc via this
channel, which has been so familiar with
this terrain. So you are at no risk whatsoever.
6. That, while we are working as
brothers to get to the
Eldora do, I should also be updating my traveling
documents so as to join you very shortly. My family
says hello to you.
7. That I will send to you by Fax, a
Copy of deposit certificate
of the fund for your perusal. I hope no third party has
access to your fax documents? Do furnish me with your secure phone
and fax numbers for purpose.
8. I shall issue to you very important
as in, a Letter of Nominee & Authority in your favor. This
Is to establish you as the new beneficiary of fund.
Hence, I need your full names and address, including your
passport number to prepare these documents.
If you have any questions or suggestions,
do not hestiate to bring it to my attention.
9. That as soon as i hear from you, i
will send you a specimen text
application letter, that you are to transcribe on your company
letter head, signed and stamped, then fax to the "GFSL" Lagos office.
This application is to enable them commence action.
