My Name Is Dr. Emma Okeh the former minister for power and steel during president Obasonjo administration and presently the Governor of Cross River State, I was also the special adviser to the president on Energy and petroleum sector
I know you must be surprised at this communication but I feel if I tell you the truth and be sincere we can make good partnership and make good money for ourselves
When I was the director of the national energy commission here in Nigeria called the national electric power authority(NEPA) I in partnership with Mr. Ken Lay the then CEO of Enron the energy giant in USA submitted a tender for a contract to install 24 power sub- stations in 12 major states and cities
The contract was approved by the president olusegun obasonjo at the cost of 102 million united states dollar ,the work commenced three months later after all the necessary documents and agreements has been obtained all the equipments where shipped in from United States and after one year the work was completed a month before the crash of Enron
Normally by the energy contract policy of Nigeria it takes six months after completion before the payment will be approved by that time ken lay has been indicted with fraud for the failure of Enron we had to a hold on the payment waiting to see the outcome of the trail which took about four years, when the verdict came out he called me to and informed me that when the money is released that he part should be donated to charities in Africa and south east Asia
Mr. Ken Lay died before the date of sentencing the Nigerian government entered into election period and the payment was suspended
But the new president has issued an irrevocable payment order to have the money transferred but because the contract was approved with Mr. ken lay as the beneficiary of the contract payment I will not be able to get the money transferred without outside help coupled with the fact that I am an ex official if go for the payment it might be seen as financial crime by the government that is why I need your help to file application as the next of kin to ken lays estate and I will provide you with all the documentation required for the application
When the transfer is done you and I will get 30% each and 30% will be used as donation to charity as requested by ken lay while the other 10% will be used to settle all and any expenses incurred in the process
and I will give you my more private and coded contact information, this is a measure to secure this transaction from imposters but be rest assured that there is no risk involved in this as it will be clean clear legal transaction
But if you are not interested please I will request you to delete this message and never mention it to anybody not even your spouse
Have a blessed day
Eng. Emma Okeh
I'm a manager at a credit union and I see about 4 people a week that are getting some type of letter or e-mail like this. The sad thing is I know of at least 5 people that believed stuff like this and have lost large sums of money. One guy has estimated his loss at around 350k. He thought he was getting money for free because he is deaf and the person scamming him said she was deaf and dying and that she knew he would do the right thing with the money to help other deaf people. His daughter finally had to take him to court and have the courts deam him unfit to handle his own finances and now she has power of attorney over all his finances to stop him from giving away any more money.
It'* terrible the way the prey on the unfortunate.
I get those in spurts. It is unbelievable people can actually believe them, most seem to supposedly originate from Nigeria, poorly written, and bad grammar. I guess greed overides common sense for some. I like it states it'* a clear legal transaction,...... but don't tell anyone, even your spouse. DUH
Now the thing that I don't understand is, aside from the elderly,how do people smart enough to have a few hundred thousand lying around become stupid enough to fall for somethin so obviously reeking of feces?
