An interesting note in my mailbox today...

Since I'm already independently wealthy, I have no interest in this 
unique investment opportunity.  No need to be selfish, I said to myself. 
 Perhaps someone else could benefit from the promised 5 million dollars.

In all honesty, even if these crooks delivered on their promises, I 
figure the government and my exwife would claim all the money, leaving 
me with only the legal liability and bureacratic snarls.

But I was wondering--where exactly is Lagos?  Sounds like a toy for

Dear Sir,

I would like to firstly send to you the best wishes of good
health and success in your pursuits particularly through
my proposal as contained in this letter.

Before going into details of my proposal to you, I must
first implore you to treat with the utmost confidentiality
as this is required for its success and to have faith in
this transaction,for opportunities
like this only comes to one once in a life time.

My colleagues and I are senior officials of the Federal
Government of my country's Contracts Review Panel (CRP) who
are interested in diverting some funds that are presently
floating in the accounts of the Apex Bank of my country.In
order to commence this transaction,
we solicit for your assistance to enable us transfer into
your nominated account the said floating funds. We are
determined to conclude the transfer before the end of this
quarter of 2002.
The source of the funds are as follows: During the last
military regime in my country,government officials set up
companies and awarded themselves contracts that were
grossly over-invoiced in various ministries and
parastatals.The present civilian government set up the
Contract Review Panel, which has the mandate to use the
instruments of payments made available to it by the decree
setting up the panel, to review these contracts and if
necessary pay those who are being owed outstanding amounts.

My colleagues and I have identified quite a huge sum of
these funds which are presently floating in our (Apex)
Central Bank ready for disbursement and would like to
divert some of it for our own purposes. However, by virtue
of our positions as civil servants
and members of this panel, we cannot acquire these funds
in our names or in the names of companies that are based
in my country. I have therefore been mandated,as a matter
of trust by my colleagues in
the panel, to look for a reliable overseas partner into
whose account we can transfer the sum of
U.S.$20,500,000.00 (Twenty
million, five hundred thousand U.S. dollars).That is why I
am seeking your assistance. We have agreed to share the
money to be transferred into your account, if you agree
with our proposition as follows;
(i)25% to the account owner(you).
(ii)65% for us (the panel officials).
(iii)10% to be used in settling all expenses (by both
you and us) incidental to the actualization of this

We wish to invest our share of the proceeds of this project
in foreign stock markets and other viable business till we
are ready and able to have access to them without raising
any eyebrows here at home. Please note that this
transaction is 100% safe and risk-free.
We intend to effect the transfer within fourteen (14)
banking days from the date of receipt of the following
information through the ifax number stated above:Your
company's name,address,telephone and
fax numbers we will use your company’s name to apply for
the payment and backdate the award of the contract in
favour of your company. We are looking forward to doing
this transaction with you and we solicit for your utmost
confidentiality in this transaction.

I will bring you into a more detailed picture of this
transaction when I hear from you.Please get intouch
through my american internet FAX # 177756401249.

Best regards,
