The scam

Hello dear.

With all due respect, I am Miss Favor Chizobam. A computer scientist with
Central Bank of Nigeria. I am 26 years old of age, been working with
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) I came across your file which was marked X
and your fund transfer released disk painted RED, I took time to study it
and found out that you have paid VIRTUALLY all fees and certificates for
your US$10.5 Million to be transfer to you but the fund has not been
release to you yet under the tenures of three past governors of Central
Bank, non of them want to release your fund to you even the present one.
The most annoying thing is that they cannot tell you the truth that on no
account will they ever release the fund to you.

Please this is like a Mafia setting in Nigeria here; you may not understand
it because you are not a Nigerian. You are not the only one in this kind of
situation in the hand of Nigerian Government official but I can help you
transfer your fund to you secretly but you have to promise to protect my
person and adhere strictly to my directives. The only thing I will need to
release this fund to you is a special new HARD DISK; we call it HD120 GIG.
I will have to buy two of it with $200, 00 only, recopy your information
from the old ones to the new ones and destroy the old ones, and punch the
computer to reflect in your Bank of America account within 24 Banking
hours. I will clean up the tracer and destroy your file, after which I will
run away from Nigeria here to meet with you in your country if matters
arise for those mafia men in Central Bank of Nigeria top post to come to
find out. Moreover i want a new life, tired of the dirty life here. If you
are interested in me helping you this way, i want you to quickly get back
to me immediately, you should send to me your convenient telephone numbers
for easy communications and also reconfirm your Banking details to
facilitate the process so that there won't be any mistake or delay. This is
my personal private email address and phone line that I use to send this
message to you. I am waiting for your candid response.
