Abba Abacha

This is a funny guy! Two emails (well, actually 4 since he wrote to my two distinct email servers but 1 mailbox each time!) send once after another with the same name in the "From:" field, but completely different bodies. Once he's James and once he's Abba, or she. Who knows now...

Ha! Another novelty (kinda), this isn't 1 or 2 millions of US dollars... Now we're talking serious money! US $45 millions!!! Cool! I could get myself a swimming pool in my back yard with that (including the staff to take care of it and I'd heat it in the winter too.)

Dear Sir/ Madam.

I am Rev. Father JAMES RICHARD, a senior staff with the World Bank fact finding & special duties office. I am writing you this letter because cool penny is better than millions of dollars. It is better for one to live and die poor honest man than a rich dishonest one.

I and the chief security officer (CSO) of this organization have arranged with an officer in computer section engineer Peter Cliff to bring out part of your total pending payment sum amounting to US$10 million. Why we did this is because according to information gathered from the bank's/security computer, you have been waiting for a long time to receive your money without success. As I found out that you have almost met all the statutory requirements in respect of your pending payment, your problem is that of interest groups. A lot of people are interested in your payment and those people are merely doing paper works with you and that explains why you receive fax and phone messages from different people everyday. Also we found out that some of the officials of the parastatals have been extorting a lot of money from you with the pretext of helping you receive your money. I can assure you that this may last for years yet nothing happens if you do not do away with those officers that you call your partners. And for security reasons do not tell anybody that you have your money until you receive cash at your door step.

The money is in a security-proof box weighing 75kg. Yesterday we went to four courier companies to make arrangements on how to ship them by courier to you. Dhl, ems, FedEx, ups all said that they must open the box for inspection by the customs before shipment. This is something we want to avoid because the box is padded with synthetic nylon and to open it, you have to cut the pad before you will meet the button that you will press to open the dial code-lock. There is no way you can open the box and be able to close it again because it was padded with machine. We told the courier services that the box contained film materials and when open will spoil the materials. We did not declare money because courier does not carry money.

Today a friend of mine who is diplomat disclosed to me that there is a security courier service they use to send diplomatic materials and information from one country to another. It has diplomatic immunity and consignment cannot be checked by any customs anywhere in the world. I have met the officials of the security courier service and concluded shipping arrangement with them, which they will commence as soon as i have your go ahead order. The diplomat will help me so we do not have any problem. We have concluded that you must donate Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars (US$500,000.00) to charity here in hour organization as soon as you receive your money. To this effect, you will send us a promissory note for Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars (US$500,000.00) along with your address for sending the box by courier.

Please maintain topmost secrecy as it may cause a lot of problems if found out that we are using this way to help you. Do not ever tell anybody about this until you have your money. I want to help you because something in me is telling me that you are an honest person. When you conclude this and you send our promise, we will help to ship the final part of your money to you.

God be with us as we wait for your reply. Please do not fail to call.
