export Promotion Council (SEPC) who was at the Government delegation in
your country during a Professionals exhibition. He gave me your
enviable credentials/particulars because he has no doubt in your
ability to handle this Proposal involving a prodigious sum of money.

INTRODUCTION: I am Mr. Michael Machaba a Civil Servant in the Ministry

community, Ogoni community (an oil rich town) in Nigeria. My community
Produces 12.8% of the total oil production in Nigeria and 0.1% of the
Dollar value of any sold oil is paid to my father as royalty by the
Federal Government. My father was also the Chairman of Ogoni Special
oil Trust Fund. In his position as the Royal head and Chairman of the
oil Trust Fund, he made some money, which he left, for me as the only
heir to inherit. The said fund is Fourteen
Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars ($14.5m). This Money
originated from the accumulated royalties between 1981-2003. He
deposited this Money in Standard Trust Bank of Nigeria with an open
beneficiary to the Bank pending when he would finish arrangement to
transfer it abroad. He was planning this when he suddenly died of Heart
Attack,three years ago.

PROPOSAL: Just before my father died he called my attention to the
Money and charged me to look for a foreigner who would assist me in
Acceptance/investment of the funds abroad. As the fund has open
beneficiary, right now there is nothing I can do because I can not lay
my hands on the fund. Because few day before his death he left
instruction with the bank that the Fund will only be transferred abroad
upon my provision of foreign account where it will be transferred.
Secondly as a civil servant in my country (Nigeria) the Code of Conduct
does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in
the whole transaction. So l would be very grateful if you could accept
to help me achieve this great objective. I promise to give you 20% of
the total funds if Successfully transferred to your country,
ascompensation for your assistance. Five percent (5%) would be set
aside to take care of all expenses that may come up during the
transaction. While the remaining %75 will be for me.

Please indicate your interest by contacting me urgently and
confidentially, so as to give you more information and the roles you
will play in this transaction. Above is my direct electronic mailing
address, contact me immediately. All the legal Documents concerning
this fund and the procedures on how to transfer this fund will be sent
to you upon your acceptance.

Finally, I want to assure you of your security on this transaction now
and after successful transfer of the fund to your account. The
transaction is 100% risk free. Provided you can give me a very strong
assurance and guarantee that my fund will be secured. Please remember
to treat this matter as very urgent because time is of the essence in

2007-01-26 15:08:14 -
I have done some extensive research on this because I received the same thing in the mail. If it sounds too good to be true it is. I checked around and found nothing on this place. I called the number to talk to someone and the guy told me everything to do but I asked him if there was someone else to talk to about it too see if this was real and h did not give me a name or number for anyone. Another thing is that I looked up the bank and there is no such bank in Ontario, and there is neither no such address listed in Ontario. I would not deposit this check, it has to be a scam.I called my bank to figure out if it's real and they said to call the bank listed on the check and there was no number listed for the bank. I stress do not deposit these checks, you never know what kind of information they are going to get from you.
