Read the scam email below..

My Dear Friend,
My name is Dr. Adesuwa Abati, a cousin to Mr.Reuben Abati, Senior Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan GCFR, of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I pray this letter meets you in good health. I was directed to contact you by Dr. Abati confidentially through this letter, as you may know; ex-President Goodluck Jonathan lost the recently concluded March 28, 2015 presidential election to President Muhammadu Buhari
Since the loss of the election to the opposition APC candidate President Muhammadu Buhari, there has been probable fear everywhere as the outgone administration is rightly anticipating the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari intends to probe all sectors of the economy including the controversial missing $20billionUSD Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) fraud, which the Minister of Finance Dr Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke could not provide adequate answer to address this enquiry.As a result of this development, Mr. Abati, instructed me to seek your partnership in a confidential funds transaction, which ex-President Jonathan mandated him to transfer out of Nigeria, with the possibility that the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari might probe him and his ministers and should that happen then part of the said funds will be used to pay attorney fees and other expenses, which may occur during such prosecution, while the rest amount will be invested into lucrative businesses in your country as our partner.

From the ongoing persecution and witch hunting of former ministers ,it is certain that sooner than later the searchlight would be beam on ex President Goodluck Jonathan.As a result Our goal is to be prepared. Consequently the total sum of $250million USD cash has been deposited with a security firm here in Accra Ghana through me as a special agent. I therefore seek your sincere and urgent partnership and cooperation to move the funds out of the security firm on or before April 25th, 2016 being a post-handover date to President Muhammadu Buhari. In furtherance to this, you will be rewarded with 30% of the $250milion, while 5% will be set aside to cover all administrative expenses that might accrue from the transaction.

If you are interested to partner with us and you find this proposal suitable for you, kindly reply for full details. I will appreciate it very much, if this proposal is acceptable by you do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed on you. Conclusively, kindly provide me with your mobile telephone number so that we can discuss more of this issue and move into action immediately. You can equally reach me through email correspondences via my private email address: [email protected] Thank you.

Dr. Adesuwa Abati
Special Agent
