Supreme Court Of Nigeria.
#35 Aku Street Satellite Town.
I am highly compelled upon recommendations, to write you this very urgent and confidential
letter. I am Barrister Obi Mavis(Esq) the Attorney to MRS MARIAM ABACHA the wife of the late Nigeria head of State General Sani Abacha who died of heart attack on Monday 18th June 1998.
Upon the sudden and tragic death of her husband, General Sanni Abacha, there has an intensive
but secret exercise by he present Civilian Government to close/freeze all his bank accounts both home and abroad as he was confirmed to have directed certain percentage of the oil
proceeds totaling overUS$900,000,000:00 (NINE HUNDRED MILLION U.S DOLLARS) into his private account scattered in several Countries of the world, accumulated during his four
and half (41/2) years of military rule, an issue that was already onbefore his sudden death.Since this exercise started few months ago, my client (Mrs.Mariam Abacha)who is still in confinement has beenin very serious agony and mental stress as the entire family has virtually lost every thing including landed properties and major investment.
Luckily, there happens to be a special security accounts in which my client deposited sum of US$26,000,000:00 ( TWENTY SIX MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS).This fund is in a friend's
company's name and islodged in Company's Account Security Deposit (CSAD) with aWest
African Regional Bank.The fear is that my client was one of the Directors and invariably a major shareholder in the companyif there exists a possible trace of thisfund when once they finish with the account/assets investigation principally owned by her husband, the Head of state himself, there is likely going to be a serious problem of confiscation. As a result of the foregoing,l have successfully arranged with a courier organization to carry/ship the sum of $26,000,000:00 to you to hold for us in trust.
These luggages are tagged "Diplomatic Luggages".This is to ensure and /or Guarantee the
express and unchecked shipment to your Designated address.They will come in full "CASH" If this arrangement is accepted to you.please,do not hesitate to contact me through this my private and confidential MAIL BOX or Alternativelyonbimavis1@myway.com .Note that conditions will be discussed when l hear from you.

So, you sent him an e-mail back, right? Discussing the terms?And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

Nigerian Scam Letter
This is called the Nigerian Scam Letter. It's been around for years. People used to receive this in the snail mail. I can't believe they're still trying this.

Even when you tell them your Law Enforcement and that you know its a scam, they still write you. I had one then thank me for getting back to them and wanted me to send all kinds of info...yea right.

Have fun with them...
I know several people who go to insane lengths to see what they'll do in response, including stupid names... Like "consulting with their financial adviser, a noted railroad tycoon, Gomez Adams."
Or check out http://www.scamorama.com/ for some other folks having fun with it.

I receive on average one a day. I don't even bother reading them. I just click on the delete key. Trust me, the delete key works like a charm... hasn't let me down yet.

Click this link to see how we deal with them. It is called scam-baiting and if you have a few minutes to waste-----.

Its fun to play along and you can actually bait them for quite a while....
On a related note, like with all other spam, its best to just delete witout opening if you can, because some emails can have an "opened" message sent back(even if you just open and dont reply) which encourages more spam because now a spambot knows your address is at least a legit email addy...

My brother (the emt) got one here's how he handled it. He wrote " I am former military and I feel this is a threat to my national security. I have sent a copy of this to the local FBI office. Do not contact me again or I will take further action". He forwarded a copy to me and I lmao. I had never thought of that that might acutally scare them maybe?JamesDept of the Army Civilian Police"Loyalty above all else, except Honor"Never forget those who fell on 9/11/01S&W beats 4 Aces every time
