This is too funny. Ok I actually just got this Nigerian scam letter.  He
assures me that it is not a scam like those "Other" nigerian scam letters
and faxes, and is RISK FREE! And that I can pick the percentage of the money
I get!
Whatever will I do? I'll be greedy...I think I'll respond that I want 99.99%
do you think they would go for it?

Dear Sir,

Business Proposal

We represent the members of the Tender Board of the Federal Ministry of
Works and Housing, Abuja.  We awarded the contract for the provision of
Street Lights in the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria, Abuja in
The contract was over-invoiced to the tune of $345 million.  The
contract was actually completed at the cost of $300 million.  However, the
balance $45 million is presently in a suspense account in the Central Bank
Nigeria. We hope to transfer this amount to a trusted foreign Partner,
who is willing to assist us to get the money out of Nigeria to an account

It is relevant to state that we are Civil Servants in the Ministry and
it is unlawful for us to have such a huge amount of money in our Bank
Account in Nigeria; hence we are seeking for a trusted foreign partner
overseas, with a foreign account that can help us to get this money out
of Nigeria.

It is a known fact that there are lots of stories about scam business
in Nigeria.  This could be seen in a lot of business letters and e-mail
and fax messages they send to people abroad.  This is rather unfortunate.
Government of Nigeria is really doing its best to eliminate the scam

However this, we have to assure you that ours is real and genuine.  It
is risk-free.  In addition, we do not want to sound too greedy in this
transaction, therefore we expect you to use your discretion to decide
the sharing of the money based on percentages.

In view of the above, we would be glad if you could give us your co-
operation, by consenting to our desires.

We look forward to your response as soon as possible.

Yours truly,

Dr.Lateef Bello
Director of Operations
Federal Ministry of Works and Housing
