Subject: Dear Friend
From: "Tessy Ibori" <email@example.com>
I know this may seem surprising to you, obviously from the fact that we
have not had any previous relationship in any form with one another but I
really desire your assistance in my proposal below:
Recently my Husband was arrested and presently in detention for abuse of
office, corruption and money laundering. Which is false? The painful
aspect of it all was that all his assets abroad and some at home have been
frozen by the London Metropolitan Police and Nigeria Police.
We seek your partnership and cooperation in establishing and operating a
very viable business as a means of investment abroad. I do not know too
well on how this is done in your country, So I will need you to help me in
this regard. I would want to invest in whatever viable business ideas of
high profit yields in your country that you can recommend. I will also
need you to help my family to look for properties like homes and lands for
sale as my Husband proposing to invest the sum of one hundred and Fifty
Million Dollars (US $150,000,000) for this. I am hoping you can and will
be of help to me and my family.
For a brief on our personality;
I am Mrs. Tessy Nkoyo Ibori lovely wife to Chief James Onanefe Ibori, A
two time past Governor of Delta State, The biggest producing State of
crude oil here in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. My husband had served
from May 1999 - May2003 and did a second tenure from May2003 - May2007. He
recently handed over to a Successor on May 29th after a Governorship
election was successfully done. We are married with 4 lovely children.
My need for this business proposition is very urgent as me and my husband
are planning to move out of Nigeria with our family down to your country.
I want you to also help in finding a good home where my family and I will
live in as soon as my is release from detention.

Please if you are truly interested in helping out, kindly contact me with
your name, address and direct phone number(s). I anxiously await your
Thanks and Best Regards,
Mrs. Tessy Nkoyo Ibori
