    Anyone of you ever get e-mails like this? Im sure it's probably BS but I've recieved them once every year or so for the past 3 or 4 but under different names of people claming to be from Nigeria.

    My dear,

    It is with trust and confidence that I make this
    urgent business proposal to you because I have been
    very careful due to the sensitive nature of this
    transaction notwithstanding the present dishonesty
    that surrounds the world today.

    I am Gen.Bon Ikechukwu one of the Special Advisers to
    the past Military Government of Gen. Sani Abacha. In
    this position, I was privileged to keep in my custody
    for the government the sum of Thirty Five Million Five
    Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars (US$35.500.000.00) only
    to the knowledge of the late head of state.
    This money was diverted from the money, which United
    Nations released through the Nigerian government to
    ECOMOG (Peace-Keeping Forces) for its operations in
    Liberia and Sierra Leone. Suddenly the former head of
    state died on the 8th June 1998. Now that the former
    head of state abruptly died I have this money still
    under my control but kept in the custody of a finance
    and Security Company/Firm in Oversea.

    Due to restriction placed on me since the death of the
    former head of state, I cannot operate foreign account
    and cannot travel out of the country for contacts and
    evacuation and safe keeping of this money. Based on
    this, I need you as a partner whom I can entrust and
    channel this money for a proper investment and in a
    joint venture platform in your country. As soon as you
    contact me and we finalize, I shall fax you every
    document with which the consignment is deposited, and
    I shall link you up with the security company as well
    as the agent that is in charge of the consignment and
    who is going to assist you in paying the money into
    the account you will open when you travel.

    Please be rest assured that the transaction is 100%
    risk free and must be treated with utmost
    confidentiality. Firstly 25% of the total sum has been
    mapped out for your assistance and also 25% for joint
    venture investment in your country while 50% will be
    kept in your account for my private use.
    It is imperative to let you know that my aim of
    contacting you in this business is because of my
    personal love for your country as per investment,
    therefore, I will be relying on your advise as regards
    investment in a blue chip stock in your country. Could
    you please reply on receipt of this letter including
    your private Tel and fax numbers for easy communication.
    Please call me on (phone number is on original)


    Gen Bon Ikechukwu
