Dear Sir,
I am a Private Investigator based in Europe. A group of Government Officials from an African Country contacted me with a Proposal.

I am to Make contact with you and statetheir offer, if your Interest is Genuine, you will beContacted for your Account details to which will be transferred the sum of $33,600,000.00 USD. (20% of which is yours). You are then required to forward the remaining balance (Minus the Interest, handling and tax clearance charges, which Will be offset by Us & Deducted from the transferred sum) to a nominated Bank account in the Cayman Islands. I don't think I need to spell out the importance of Secrecy in this Matter considering the amount involved.

Let me state clearly here that the account that you would be providing does not need to have funds in it; it is only needed to be active and be able to receive funds.

So, if I don't hear from you within three days I will assume you are not interested and will solicit for a new partner, but if you know you are interested let me know. List your phone & fax Numbers so we may communicate with you. This is important as we would Have to talk about the modalities of the transaction.
Waiting to hear from you.

Daniel Otu

Hello Mr. Otu!
My phone number is 01 90 81 19 84 (Helga, die Meisterin).

Thank you for the great opportunity.

hello Erich,
Thank you very much for reponding to my mail, the funds we are going to transfer to your account came from a contract duly executed for the federal government and they would be cover letters from both the attorney and accountant generals of the federation stating such.

if you can assure me that you truly interested in helping me transfer this funds i would send you the details of the transaction and go ahead to prepare the necessary legal documents to facilitate the release of the funds. i would also want you to provide me your fax number so that as soon as i have them ready i would fax them to you.

my phone number is 234 803 474 6033 please i would want you to call me at any time of the day so we can discuss the intricacies of the transfer.

thank you once again for your willingness to assist.

regards
Daniel

Hello Mr. Otu!
Though I am generally willing to help you I have some questions and concerns, that I have to tell you, before we go any further:

the funds we are going to transfer to your account came from a contract duly executed for the federal government
Which federal government? Are we here speaking about my country, the Federal Republic of Germany? In your first letter, you wrote about an "african" country.

i would also want you to provide me your fax number
I have no fax-machine and I never will! We are living in the 21st century, and eMail is the medium for correspondence nowadays. May be one of your Private-Investigator-based-in-Europe-collegues will lend you a scanner- that will do the same in better quality.

the necessary legal documents ... as soon as i have them ready
Does this mean, you MAKE them?

my phone number is 234 803 474 6033 please i would want you to call me
Which part of "I am deaf" did you not understand? Deaf means: „I CAN NOT HEAR“ – If my ears were eyes(what they aren't), one could say "I-AM-BLIND"(what I am NOT) – Spoken words come to my mind like raindrops into a desert. I use my ears like a fish uses a bicycle.

awaiting your clarifications

hello Erich,

the contract was executed for the federal government of Nigeria. i understand the fact you said you are deaf and i also know that this is the 21st century and that a scanner comes in handy these days.i was only looking at the situation where the government might require that a contractor who could execute a contract of this magnitude should have a fax line. ( me looking forward, too. )

one thing i must state clearly to you now is that i do not like the rude tone you are using and i am not begging you to do this, you are going to make so much money from this deal. just let me know if you are in or out

and if you have intelligent question that would enable us complete the transfer of the funds.

thank you and God bless.

regards,
daniel

Hallo private investigator danielotu.

the contract was executed for the federal government of Nigeria.
Sorry, but I didn't knew, that Nigeria is a federal republic, too.

looking at the situation where the government might require that a contractor who could execute a > contract of this magnitude should have a fax line.
And what precisely shall I think about a government, that "might require" fax lines? Tell them, what I told you.

one thing i must state clearly to you now is that i do not like the rude tone you are using
What the fuck is rude in my tone? And by the way: My surname is Nigma, not Erich. People, who lay together with me pissed in the filth, are used to call me Erich. Subalteren private investigators might require to call me Mr. Nigma.

and i am not begging you to do this,
But you will have to, if you want me to go any further in this transaction.

and if you have intelligent question that would enable us complete the transfer of the funds.
What was wrong with the questions, you have not answered?
You wrote that you are going "ahead to prepare the necessary legal documents" and "as soon as i have them ready i would fax them to you"
That made me think that
1.) YOU might require me to have a goddam faxmachine and
2.) you are MAKING these documents.
Since you have not answered to this "dumb" questions, I AM OUT !
