Dear Sir/Madam,

This letter will definitely be amazing to you because of its realistic value.

Sorry for the inconveniences that was rendered to you in your line of Inheritance Payment transaction with some impersonators some while ago.

I know that this letter will hit you by surprise, but firstly I will like to introduce myself; I am (Mr. Ayoola Olayinka) the Legal chairman of "ICPC", (Nigeria's Anti-Fraud Unit).

On the 1st of October 2000, the former President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria (Chief Olusegun Obasanjo) introduced a Commission named the "ICPC", (Nigeria's Anti-Fraud Unit) which is duly registered under the United Nations (U.N.O). This particular Commission was initiated to detect fraud/funds delay/impersonation of Government Officials. Secondly, we are mandated by the US Government to settle foreign debts/fraud victims/Un-paid beneficiaries to satisfactory in other to maintain peace in the world at large and also to create a good relationship with the international bodies.

Presently, we are being paid by the American government in other to avert beneficiary funds delays/fraud here in Nigeria.

So far in this present year, we have settled the likes of (Mrs. Debbie Hargrove, Mr. Michael Wagner etc).

You are being contacted by this office today dated (25th May 2010) because your Case File (A) is the very first File on our Settlement Files Cabinet. From our intelligent investigations and Probing processes we discovered that you are a victim of fraud/funds delay.
The "ICPC", is faithfully under my governance as the Legal Chairman of the great Commission and to this Authority I took an oath of allegiance to settle all fraud victims peacefully.
This Memorandum is to notify you that you will be settled by the Nigerian Government from our initial Deposit Account. Your settlement will be actualized within 3working days after your response to this Official Letter.

For further clarification/investigation kindly send the below information to us immediately:
1. Your Full name & residential address.
2. Mobile and fax number (for regular official contact).
3. Your inheritance funds value.
4. Amount, which you have lost previously.

These above-mentioned informations will officially enable us to carry out our verification processes and after that your compensation sum/Inheritance Funds will be Electronically wired into your designated Bank account or through a Diplomatic Delivery Service, depending on which mode you prefer.

Your immediate compliance to this will expedite actions on your Payment because here in this office, we have a lot of listed victims to be settled.
Call me +18149330090

officially signed,
Hon. Justice Emmanuel Olayinka Ayoola
Chairman ICPC Nigeria

This is cute. They're targeting people who *were* dumb enough to fall for the scam once.

That's almost as good as the personal e-mail message I received from the Director of the FBI, complete with his image, informing me that some money had been seized from an overseas transfer, and was being held on my behalf.

It was very kind of him to take the time out of his busy day to inform me of this matter, so that I might be able to obtain the $40, or $6.5 USD million being held (the paragraphs in the message were conflicting, so I'm unclear on the exact amount).

I was rather tickled at that.

What amazes me is that anybody is left on the planet who doesn't know about Nigerian scams.
