Dear Client,

Good day from us here in the War Zone Of Niger Delta In Federal Republic Nigeria, We all hope that knowing you will be great thing and benefit for both of us. As you know what is going on over here in Nigeria since past 3 years now we have been battling with the Rabbles here in Nigeria mostly Oil Rich Region of Niger Delta Area last two weeks we fought heavily with the Militants and they also retaliated brutally. Then We grazed the Camp of their strong Man (Tompolo Government A.K.A Camp 5) and destroyed everything over there and as a result of that most of them died in that battle and others ran away with bullet injuries then we captured their Crude Oil Stored House containing Over 250,000 (Two Hundred and fifty Thousand) Barrels of Crude Oil and successfully befitting Them, we took the whole Crude Oil to a hiding place

Hence we are still in the military camp we cannot sell it to anybody here in Nigeria because we are still uniformed men then we decided, to sell the product outside the country since Mr. President is not aware of this business only the high Rank Officers are aware.

Paradoxically, Sir the reason why we are writing to you now is for you to help us to contact those that can buy this Crude Oil in your Country and pay us for the value of the Crude Oil upon the arrival of the Crude Oil. We have contacted the Company that will help us to Ship out the Crude Oil. The only thing left now is who will buy the Crude Oil.

Consequently, as for your labor and effort, you will have 30% of the Money and then send to us the remaining balance once the Deal is done.

Most importantly, that is why we need somebody who is Trustworthy and a person who will keep this business confidential. I hope you know the Military Law, I hope that you are the type of person we need and can lay our trust on. So if you are really interested in this Business please reply with important information’s regarding to the disposing this product as soon as you get the Mail. We are giving you 100% assurance that everything we be successful provided that you fully cooperate with us.

Credit card loss

Please beware of a cheat like bijoy poddar.  Firstly, what he is writing is ingenuine. If at all it is a little genuine it should serve him right.  It is a punishment god has given him for cheating so many people.  He has collected a large amount of money from people promising to supply them good quality dogs, but in turn he supplies them street dogs.  The people have no option than to accept the things since he gets all his payments in advance through net. A NET fraud I can say.
God has punished him. Most of the people he has cheated were waiting for this day to come.

Subject: Some fraudsters that scammed you was caught and some of yourmoneyrecovered.

Dear fraud victim,

This is to inform you that four of the fraud syndicate that defrauded you has been caught and six escaped. These men and women used fake identities and documents to scam innocent victims. They confessed that they use tricks of  fictitious Contract, Inheritance, Lottery and all other manner of enticing tricks to lure and defraud their victims. They were caught in attempt to defraud one Briton. During their prosecution, they made a plea bargain on the following in order to get  a lower jail term:

1. To name their victims for reparation payment to them.
2. To reveal and forfeit all their ill-gotten wealth.
3. To identify and reveal the hidden wealth of their six absconded partners

The chief prosecutor agreed with their request and  granted them Eight years each instead of Twelve years. The court agreed to their plea so that the court could pay their victims reparations from the loot recovered from them. The court recovered expensive cars, jewelries, houses, stocks and shares including some cash deposits in their bank accounts.

The court sold all the properties confiscated from them to realize money for reparation payment to their numerous victims. The four are currently serving Eight years jail term each. I am contacting you based on the confessional testimony of the fraudsters  that you were among their victims. To this effect, if you have lost money to fraudsters in the past, please do let me know how much you lost, your contact phone number and address so that we can work out your refund modalities from the recovered sums.

Please do not be deceived by the bogus claims of money in Nigeria or Africa as a whole because Africa is a very poor continent with greater percentage of its population living in abject poverty. Please spread this news to your friends and relative that there is no such bogus money in Africa as claimed by fraudsters so that more innocent people won‘t fall victim of fraud especially in this time of economic recession.

If you are not the person they defrauded please disregard this mail as it was sent to you based on confessional testimony and information provided by the jailed fraudsters.  I am aware that the six escaped fraudsters may still be communicating you from clandestine locations. Please if you receive any communication from them, don’t reply from henceforth. If you need further clarifications, call me directly on +2348074037620 for clarifications.

Yours faithfully,
Honorable Justice Umaru Abdullahi
