FROM THE MAILROOM 

FROM THE MAILROOM

"Goodday to you." So began the letter from someone identifying himself as Barrister Jude Lewis, from Nigeria. "Now let me start by introducing myself. I am the personal secretary of the late Attorney General of Nigera, CHIEF BOLA IGE who was assasinated by gun men on the 24th of Dec. 2001. Since after his death, the Government is yet to delibrate on his successor and i am the only person who has possesion to the documents of his private Bank Accounts both here and abroad. "I therefore appeal to you seriously and religiously for your urgent assistance to move this money into your country where I believe it will be safe. You can contact me immediatly and i shall arrange with you for a face-to-face meeting outside Nigeria in order to liaise with you towards effective completion of this transaction. "However, arrangements have been put in place to move this money out of the country in the secret vault through a security company to any country in Europe / America and as soon as you indicate your interest, i and his family shall send you the Air Bill of the Luggage and other related vital documents so that you can help to claim the Luggage. "Conclusively, we have agreed to offer you 15% the total sum, while 85% is to be held on trust by you until we can decide on a suitable business investment in your country subsequent to our free movement by the Nigerian Government which i believe will come in due time." This sounds like a perfectly legitimate, legal, and above-board transaction to us, and the Fly on the Wall savings account (current balance: $3.27) will be more than happy to hold these sums for this very worthy cause.
