Scam o Rama 51

My brother Maj. Hamza El-Mustapha and his mistress in Lebanon [Col. Zaki El-Mustapha (RTD.)]

This was received in Switzerland. It is terrific! The logical discontinuities and strange sentence structure only add to the charm. Based on the US$21.5m letter but they're trying a new approach. No NNPC this time, no over-invoiced accounts. In plain English, this guy (if he were who he claimed to be, har har) is the brother of a military thug who wants you to help him launder money. Read & laugh! but keep a firm grip on your checkbook.

ATTENTION:  First Name & Last Name

I wish to introduce myself to you. I am col. Zaki El-Mustapha (rtd.), Elder brother to Major Hamza El-Mustapha who was the former chief security officer to the late military dictator of Nigeria (General Sani Abacha). The late General Sani Abacha died unexpectedly on the 8th of june, 1998. He was poisoned in the presidential villa (aso rock) by his colleagues in the army because he ruled Nigeria with an iron hand and he did not want democracy in the country.

With the death of the dictator, elections were held in the country and a civilian administration was sworn into power. With the advent of the new civilian administration a decision was taken by the incumbent president of Nigeria to probe and persecute all military officers that served in the last military regime to late General Sani Abacha. My brother Major Hamza El-Mustapha was singled out by the government of the day as an army officer that must be punished because of his closeness to the late dictator and gross human right abuses on the citizens of Nigeria. My brother and i were best of friends and he shared all his secrets with me. The former chief security officer to the late head of state Major Hamza El-Mustapha had private accounts that are worth close to us$600m dollars around the world. Presently he has been arrested by the government of the day and is presently in prison awaiting to be taken to court on charges of gross human right abuses on the citizens of Nigeria. I was discreetly informed by my contacts in the presidential villa that the present civilian government had decided that he will be convicted because of his position as the former chief security officer to the late dictator.

Shortly before my brother was arrested by the present government he entrusted to me the sum of US$21.5 Million dollars which are defaced (blackened)for security reasons. This amount was to be sent to his mistress in Lebanon to launder for him.

i have since had this amount of money with me stashed away in a private safe in my house. I cannot send this money to my brother’s mistress any more because of the situation of things down here. I need your assistance in moving and securing this money in your account abroad. I will adequately compensate you with 20% of the total sum for your assistance and co-operation with me to move this fund out of the country.

The present civilian administration collectively retried ninety-two serving officers and myself a couple of months ago. This money is not safe where it is kept any more because there are indications that all the retired officers might have their estates confiscated as part of the current sanitation exercise to stop corruption in the country. Already our various private bank accounts have been frozen pending the outcome of their investigations and we are being closely monitored.

I intend to safeguard and invest this amount of money abroad with a reliable foreign business partner. That is why i am soliciting your assistance and co-operation as regards this business. Arrangements have been concluded with a security company in canada or europe to receive this money in cash depending on where is convenient for you. Please indicate your willingness to assist me by sending a fax to me with the following fax numbers so that i can contact you and commence the transaction in earnest.

I am waiting to hear from you very soon.
