About the Nigerian advanced fee scam

The Nigerian Advance Fee Scheme, also known internationally as "4-1-9" fraud after the section of the Nigerian penal code which addresses fraud schemes, is generally targeted at small and medium sized businesses, as well as charities. This global scam, recently seen in Russia, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as the US, involves the receipt of an unsolicited letter purporting to come from someone who claims to work for the Nigerian Central Bank or from the Nigerian government. The Central Bank of Nigeria denies all connection to those who promote this scheme.

October 30, 2007

Hello My Dear.

I am Mrs Nene Briggs,the wife of the late Mr Felix Nuate Briggs of the Movement For The Soveriegn State of Ogoni in Rivers State,the Niger Delta Oil Producing Community Of Nigeria,who was killed along side Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight others during the military junta of the late Head of State Gen. Sani Abacha.Since the death of my husband,life has not been the same for me and my family. I know we have not met before, but, I am contacting you with due sense of humanity, responsibility and the believe that you will give my proposal a mutual understanding. I am soliciting for your assistance to clear and move from the finance company the sum $14.5million USD to your country for investment.

The fund is presently in a security/finance company for safety purposes since the 12- 2- 2003. It was saved through the security company just to divert prying eyes. The real content of the box was not declared as it was kept as photographic equipment on deposit. Please I need you as a partner to assist in clearing and subsequently transferring the fund in a safe account overseas and also, to provide good investment plans for it. The fund will be under your investment control for three years during which only the profit will be shared among us (you and I), 80% for me and 20% for you annually. I am a Christian with the fear of GOD in any thing I do so please I want us to build-up trust on each other. I will send you all the deposit documents as soon as you indicate your interest to be my partner.

Kindly reply here:
Thanks and God bless.
Nene Briggs (Mrs)
