The Art of the Nigerian Scam, Part 4: Will the Fun Never End?

In my continuing critique of the art of the Nigerian scam, this one gets really poor marks. I don't think Dr. Lukeman is even trying.

Confidential message.

I am writing this mail to you from my residence because of how confidential it is,this letter contains some confidential materials and should be deleted from your mail box if you are unable to help me out concerning the proposal.I am the director of international remittance in a bank here in Abidjan.

I and my colleagues have an amount of 28 million dollars belonging to Gen Robert Guei who was shot dead together with all his family last September by the Government soldiers here on an accusation of plotting a failed coup de de tat.this money was 58 million dollars but some have been used in the importation of arms by the General until he met the unexpected death.

I have all the necessary documents involved in the deposition and the withdrawal of the part of the money and the next of kin was his personal security guard who also met his death.Now I want you to stand as the next of kin and help us transfer this amount of money out from hereThis business is 100% risk free and I will prepare all the documentation and prove the source of the fund before the transfer.

I want you to know that this business involves I and 5 top officials in our bank and must not be taken as a joke,I advice you to think very well before responding because we need a very strong hand in this transaction.

Your percentage and other important details will be discussed once I confirm your kind willingness in helping in the transfer.

I await your postive response .
