When we last left our hero, me, I was trying desperately to to contact Dr. Williams Ossai, holder of a large amount of free floating money in Nigeria (see below). He had initailly sent me an unsolicited email informing me that there was money in Nigeria just waiting for me, all I had to do was send him my letterhead and bank account information. However, I had remained unable to reach him. Until this came along--
DEAR WILL,


THANK YOU FOR YOUR EMAIL.I HAVE RESPONDED TO YOUR PREVIOUS MAIL,MAYBE YOUR MAIL BOX IS FILLED,SO I ADVISE YOU DELETE SOME OF YOUR MESSAGES AND YOUR TRASH FOLDER OR YOU PROVIDE ME WITH ANOTHER EMAIL ADDRESS SO THAT WE WILL NOT ENCOUNTER SUCH PROBLEMS WHILE CARRYING OUT THIS TRANSACTION.

LET ME START BY EXPLAINING IN DETAIL THE TRANSACTION,AND HOW YOU CAN BE OF ASSISTANCE. WE INTEND TO TRANSFER THIS MONEY THE
SAME WAY ALL LEGITIMATE CONTRACT PAYMENTS ARE PAID BY THE GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA.

FIRST WE WOULD REGISTER YOUR COMPANY, INCORPORATE IT,AND PAY TAXES ON IT HERE IN NIGERIA, AND ALL THIS WILL BE BACKDATED TO A TIME WHEN THE SUPPOSED CONTRACT IS
TO HAVE BEEN AWARDED AND WAS EXECUTED BY THE SAID COMPANY. WE WILL NOW USE THE COMPANY'S LETTERHEAD WHICH YOU WILL SIGN TO APPLY TO THE FEDERAL MINISTRY OF FINANCE FOR PAYMENT OF THE CONTRACT SUM TO AN ACCOUNT YOU WILL PROVIDE, AND MIND YOU THIS WILL HAVE DOCUMENTATIONS IN DIFFERENT AGENCIES OF GOVERNMENT INVOLVED IN THE PAYMENT AND EVERYTHING WILL POINT TO THE FACT THAT THIS COMPANY EXECUTED A CONTRACT THAT IT IS NOW APPLYING TO BE PAID FOR.

I ASSURE YOU THAT BY THE TIME WE CONCLUDE THE
DOCUMENTATIONS AND APPLICATION FOR PAYMENT, EVEN YOU WILL THINK THAT YOU ACTUALLY DID A CONTRACT HERE IN NIGERIA.

I WILL REQUIRE YOU TO SEND ME THE REQUIRED LETTERHEAD SIGN BY YOU AND ALSO THE ACCOUNT WHERE THE PAYMENT SHOULD BE MADE, AND AS SOON AS THAT IS DONE WE WILL PROCEED WITH THE DOCUMENTATION, AND THEN APPLY FOR PAYMENT TO THE PROVIDED ACCOUNT.YOU WOULD BE ENTITLED
TO %20 OF THE TOTAL SUM FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE.

I WILL BE WAITING FOR YOUR PROMPT RESPONSE.

MY REGARDS,

DR.WILLIAMS

URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP--Part 2

Having been singled out by Dr. Williams to make this money, it was absolutely nessesary that I reply promptly, which I did. In three seperate emails. As follows.

First I tried the friendly response
.

Dr. Ossai--

Please send more information.

Ned Niederlander
CEO/President
MAAA

This garnered no reply from Mr. Williams...and I need this money. So I gave him a little push, with (and I admit, it does contain and element of fantasy) an urgent need to know about this deal NOW--

Dr. Ossai--

It is imperative that you contact me now concerning out potential business
arrangement. I leave for the Philippines this afternoon.

Truly,

Ned Niederlander
President/CEO
MAAA

Still, nothing. I was growing impatient. That money was sitting there waiting for me, he needed my help, and now he had the audacity to remain silent when I wanted a piece of this action!! It was time TO ACT!

Dear Sir,

Your continued refusal to reply to my queries leads me to believe that
this proposition you've made is not entirely on the level. Please assuage
my fears that all is not right with your deal by responding to my message as
soon as possible. I'm very intrigued by your offer, but have as of yet been
unable to fax or contact you. Since you leave me no other information, if
you cannot reply back, I will assume the deal is forfeit, and attempt to
contact you no further.

Sincerely,

Ned Niederlander
CEO
Middleton Area Accounting Accredits

There. Either he'll get back with me, or our whole little deal will be off. To think, I've wasted this much time on this, and recieve not even a cursory reply. Still, that yacht in the Keyes is so close I can taste it. Taste it!

Big Money For You Now!

Dr. Ossai Williams wants to make me rich. I do not know why he has singled me out for this honor, what about my personality, or proffessional work, or perhaps my writing make me worthy for this kind of attention, but apparently, the Nigerian govrnment has TONS of money floating around, and they want to give it to me. I was lucky enough to recieve this missive from Dr. Williams just One month ago--DR.WILLIAMS OSSAI.

URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP

First, I must solicit your confidence in transaction. which is of mutual benefit.This is by virtue of it's nature of being utterly confidential.I am sure and have confidence of your ability, and reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great magnitude. We are top Officials of the Federal Government Contract review Panel who are interested in importation of goods into our country with funds which are presently trapped in Nigeria. In order to commence this business,we need your assistance to enable us transfer funds into your account. As members of the Contract Review Panel set up by the Government of Nigeria to review all contracts from 1983 to the present,we have identified a lot of inflated contract funds which are presently floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria ready for payment. By virtue of our position as Civil Servants and members of this Panel, we cannot acquire this money in our names, in thisregard I have been delegated by my colleagues of the review Panel to look for an overseas partner into whose account we would transfer the sum of US$21,320,000.00 ( Twenty -One Million, Three Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars) hence we take the liberty to write you.
The money will be shared as follows:
1.20% for the account owner.
2. 70% for us (The Officials)
3.10% to be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses. Please note that this whole process will take between 7 to 10 working days from the date of receipt of the following information by fax 234 1 7597267 Your individual/Company's signed and stamped letterhead with a transcribed"Text" which we would send to you upon receipt of your reply with a letter of interest. The above information will enable us write letter of claim, and Job description by using your individual/Company name to apply for payment for the above stated amount. Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter using the above Fax number. Detailed information of this pending business transaction will be sent to you as soon as I hear from you.

Yours faithfully,

DR.WILLIAMS OSSAI.
