Read more about the history of this scam.

Dear friend,
I am sorry to encroach in your privacy, please permit me to introduce
myselfto you.
My name is Mariam Ajao omotoriola, I am the eldest daughter of late
engr.Omotoriola Ajao, I am 22 years old and a final year students of
mathematics
in the university of Ibadan.I lost both parents in a plane crash on the
4thof may 2002 in the city of Kano, Nigeria.My late father engr.omotoriola
ajao was the then Area Manager of petroleum pipeline marketing cooperation
(PPMC) before
his death. He was a wealthy man, and infact a model. Before his death, he
had about 3 petrol station and numerous properties in the country. But after
his death,his family member teamed up and sold all his properties both fixed
and
current,and now we are left with nothing. About two weeks ago, my father?s
personal lawyer, Thomas Emoson (SAN) contacted us and made us understand
that my late father has some amount of money to the tune of ($3.2 million
usd),Three million two hundred thousand united state dollar in a suspense
account in a finance house in London. He went further to say that he has the
legal power as my fathers attorney to release all documents that will enable
us make claims
of the fund, but that the only problem we will have is that we will have to
look for an honest, God fearing foreigner who will act as my fathers partner
in business so as to make claims of the fund.
Consequently, I also intend to donate part of this fund to the motherless
babies and orphanage once we are able to claim the fund because as an orphan
I
have suffered so much, and I know what it takes for one to stay without
parents.
This is the reason why I decided to seek for your assistant and cooperation
to help us make claims of my father property. I have attached the obituary
announcement of my late parents and other deceased member of staff of the
company as published in (THIS DAY), one of Nigerian dailies. As soon as
I receive your positive response, I will inform my fathers lawyer so that he
can
reach you and explain what is expected of you in this matter. I urgently
await your swift response.
Regards
Mariam Ajao.
