I am gentleman by name of DeWalt of McAfee Company, maker of virus hater software. I have the courage to Crave indulgence for this important business believing that you will never let me down either now or in the future. Some years ago, an American soft ware company with operation in Nigeria made a numbered time (fixed)deposit for twelve calendar months, valued $12B.USD (TWELVE BILLION US DOLLARS) in an account. The gentleman in charge of said deposit wrote to inform the bank that he died without MAKING WILL, and all attempts by the American Embassy to trace his next of kin was fruitless. He said in notification of self death did not decla re any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank deposit paper work. They speak English not well and offer to me bank account according to Nigerian Banking policy, if paid 7.7B.USD. This is the situation, and my proposal is that I am looking for big company who will stand in as purchaser of my company, McAfee, and OPEN a Bank Account for 7.7B.USD. This is simple, all you have to do is to OPEN an account anywhere in the world and send me its detail for me to arrange the proper money transfer paperwork, and facilitate the transfer. Return I give you virus hater software and I collect $12B.USD from Nigeria. The money will then be paid into this Account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me, 35 % for you and 5% for expenses that might come up during transfer process. There is no risk at all, and all the paper work for this transaction will be done by me using my position and connections in the banks in Nigeria. This business transaction is guaranteed.And the first phase of the transfer will be $7.7B.USD as advised by our insider in the bank. If you are interested, please reply immediately through my personal email sending the following details: (1) Your Full Name/Address (2) Your Private Telephone/fax Number. Please observe the utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest some of my share in your country.
