    Dear Friend,

    You may be surprised to receive this message from me since you do not know me in person, but for the purpose of introduction, I am Mr. David Olds, a citizen of Zimbabwe, the son of late Mr. Martin Olds (a farmer ) who was murdered in cold blood by the agent of the ruling government of President Robert Mugabe for his alleged opposition of the land act law of Mugabe.

    Before the death of my father, he deposited the sum of eleven million, one hundred and twenty US Dollars ($11.12M) with a bank here in Thailand. This money was earmarked for the establishment of a farm in Thailand, but because of his death, he could not actualize this project.

    This land problem arose when President Robert Mugabe introduced a new land Act which wholly affects the white rich farmers and some few blacks who vehemently condemned his governance. This resulted to rampant killings and mob actions. My mother and I have decided to transfer this money to a foreign country where we can invest it as it is unsafe to invest here because of the political instability of this country.

    I must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free and the nature of your business does not necessarily matter. So if you are willing to assist us, I and my mother have agreed to give you 20% of this fund for your assistance. The rest will be for a joint business venture I will be doing with you after buying a house where we can live.

    Therefore, if you are willing and interested to render the needed assistance, endeavor to write back giving me your full name and telephone number. Write back to my private email address:

    Thank you,
    David Old

    Dear Sir,

    I am using this most secure and confidential medium available to me to seek your cooperation in this project that would be of immense mutual benefit. Even as we do not know each other before now, we both know that trust is earned though it is not given out lightly. Also, we both know that almost all international transactions are done on trust.

    I am Dr. Bakari Bashir, the Director, Petroleum and Pipeline marketing Board (PPMB). We are the international sales and distribution unit of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Hence our office is located here in London, as we liaise with the London International Petroleum Exchange.

    I have US$31.5M (Thirty-one Million, and Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), which resulted from allocation and sales of excess crude oil to foreign buyers.

    The proceeds were not entered in the financial statement of the Petroleum and Pipeline marketing Board as regularly submitted to the Government. This money is safely floating in our (PPMB) account with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

    Recently due to allegations of corruption in the Nigerian Oil sector, the new Government of President Umaru Yar`Adua set up a panel to look into the past activities of all the companies and subsidiaries in the oil sector – though it’s a normal things when new Governments come in.

    This is what prompted me to contact you. I have to move this US$31.5M out of the PPMB account as urgently as possible.

    Unfortunately, I cannot just withdraw or make the money disappear without giving proper account of it.

    So the idea is to have a foreign partner whom the money will be paid out to, in the form of payment for a contract he or she (you) did for the PPMB on behalf of the Petroleum Ministry/Government of Nigeria. Your gender, occupation or line of business does not matter at all.

    I am therefore seeking your consent to position you to have this money released directly to you by the Central Bank of Nigeria, in the form of a payment for a contract service you did for the PPMB. I would secure backdated documents that would mean and prove that you actually did a contract for the Nigerian Government, for which this contract payment (US$31.5Million) is due. Remember, I am the director of the PPMB. With the documents, I would hire an Attorney who would file the documents with the Central Bank of Nigeria for immediate release of the US$31.5Million to you.

    One important thing: after the fund is approved and released in your name as your contract payment, it would be moved to your location through diplomatic means. But this strictly depends on available logistics at the material time. I have perfected all arrangements towards that.

    This diplomatic means is a time tested and efficient methods by which privileged top government officials remove their loot, fortunes and valuables to safety in foreign countries. It makes it secret and practically impossible to be traced.

    I will allow you to keep 25% of the total amount as your compensation/share. The remaining 75% shall be for me, though I would still need you to help me make good investments in your country.

    Call, fax or e-mail immediately to furnish me with your full names and address, your occupation or company's name, your private telephone and fax numbers for easy communication. Also send me the name page of your international passport or any other form of identification of your good self. The above information would be used to make formal applications as a matter of procedure for the release of the money to you as the bona-fide beneficiary. And I have to use the information to raise the necessary backdated documents that would be needed to process the US$31.5M as a contract payout.

    I assure you that the transaction will be concluded in 10 working days. There is no risk whatsoever involved. Be assured that as the PPMB director: I am on top of the situation all the time and there will be no risk. The claim would be fronted by an Attorney, and executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from any breach of the law.

    Lastly, I plead that absolute honesty, sincerity, confidentiality, reliability and trust should be our watchword throughout this transaction considering my official position here. Treat as strictly confidential for obvious reasons as you know I am still in service.

    I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation as I look forward to a healthy business relationship with you now and in future. drbbakari@yahoo.it

    Dr. Bakari Bashir.

    Since we got information about his death we can not release the money unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the deceased.As indicated in our banking guidelines.

    Unfortunately,neither the family members nor the relations have appeared to claim this money.At this discovery,I decided to do business with you so that our bank will release the money to you as the next of kin or relation of the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as an unclaimed debt. The banking law and guidelines of Abbey National Plc stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed for a period of eight (8) years it will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.

    Therefore to enable the lmmediate transfer of the fund to you as indicated. You must apply to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased.Indicating your bank acount details where the money will be remitted.

    Upon receipt of your reply,I will send to you the text of application which you will fill and send to our foreign operation department applying as a relative of late Scott Kennedy.
