Dear World,

Greetings. My name is the Republic of Nigeria. I am an extremely wealthy nation in Africa. I have led an honorable life, and I am a highly respected member of the community of nations. Recently because of some business dealings which are too complicated to explain in this email, I obtained access to vast amounts of money. Thirty-Three Billion Dollars US to be exact.

As you can imagine I am now burdened with an embarrassment of riches. This is creating unnecessary pressure, as the wife’s relatives, if they discover, will begin pestering me for loans from which to buy cattle and weapons.

I plan to dispose of this unnecessary money quickly, and will almost certainly donate it to charity.

You will understand that I cannot let the wife know of this transaction, as it will be seen as an insult to her tribe, and thus I seek your help in transferring this money quickly and quietly out of my Treasury. You will be amply rewarded for your kindness and troubles at a rate of 30 cents in the dollar.

Please email in response the following information: Name of your country; Full name of your Reserve Bank or Treasury; Account Number; Digitised signature of your Treasurer or Chancellor of the Exchequer or Finance Minister; Current Reserves.

I am most extremely grateful for kind patience and indulgence.

Your most fondest admirer and friend.

The Republic of Nigeria
