Re: Investment Advise/Opportunity
How are you and the family today? Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, but due to the situation at hand I have no choice.
I am contacting you based on the request by an investor Mrs Maduekwe
Johnson, a Top Nigeria Citizen/politician on her need for
investment/funding in your country. My Name is Michael A. Jabril, a
Consultant and Personal Adviser to the investor, My company, most times
represents the interests of Big investor-(HIGHNET-WORTH INDIVIDUALS) due to the sensitivity of the position they hold in their societies and the unstable investment environment of their country, they evacuate majority of their fund to more stable economies and developed nations where they can get good yield for their funds.
Mrs Maduekwe Johnson,whom i had personally worked with so many years ago with a proposal, recently, approach me that she needs an individual or company that will assist her to invest the sum of (USD58.500.000.00)
Fifty-Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollar on her behalf in a good profitable business in your country for a period of 10 years for a start.
The total amount available in Bank Guarantee is USD110 Million, but an
initial sum of USD58.5Million has been approved for this investment, due to the current situation of the country under the Governorship of President Buhari, who is presently very sick and there is a rumour that his dead, but not confirmed to the nation yet.
But the most sad news here is that Mrs Maduekwe Johnson (A top Government functionary here has being diagnosed of lung cancer and this has necessitated in her search for an investment manager to stand on behalf of only daughter (Adopted) for this period of years.
I believe this is another great opportunity to reach out for a long term investment, i will be very grateful if we can work this out together, probably we can make an arrangement to meet for possible investment discussion to seal the agreement to enable commencement.
Also note that the POF on this transaction is available and all necessary legal Documentation will be executed before actual liquidation/transfer is executed to you or your banker as this is a legitimate transaction.
The investor also offers for your assistance is 20%, 70% to be
managed by you also for the period 10 years and 5% will be set aside as
donation to charity organizations and other less privilege homes monthly.the balance 5% will be will added to your share should there be any expenses during the process of transfer of fund to you.
Be rest assured of our sincerity and this is a Legitimate Transaction and all required legal documents will be presented an demand.

details contact me via my private email (firstname.lastname@example.org) only as stated here for confidentiality.

Please don’t be fooled with the above email since it is pure scam. Why I say is so is because of the following things I analyses in this below email.
1. The email message is sent from Recipients
2. This email is delivered to Spam folders of peoples emails which a mark “Be careful with this message. Many people marked similar messages as phishing scams, so this might contain unsafe content”.
3. The sender is not known to me and or do I or any other know him. One wonders why out of blue one will send such an opportunity to an unknown person. Additionally, the sender simply signs “Mr. Michael A. Jabril, Financial Consultant/Adviser” but from where??? You should think about this before you are scammed!!
