Have you noticed how many African scammers seem to think that we will believe that the world is full of boxes full of cash! Haven’t they heard of banks and electronic transfers? Nobody is going to send $4.1m of legal money in cash in a box! They aren’t going to send it to me and they aren’t going to send it to you, or any of the other thousands of people who received this email.
All this scammer wants is your money – and he/she doesn’t want your money sent in a box either – they will ask you to send it by Western Union or some other transfer service. Ignore this scammer.
OFFICE OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER
TO THE PRESIDENT FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

I am Lt. Gen. Peter Olu, National Security Adviser to the New President Dr Goodluck Jonathan Federal Republic of Nigeria. I decided to contact you because of the prevailing security report reaching my office and the intense nature of policy in Nigeria. This is to inform you about our plan to send your fund to you via cash delivery. This system will be easier for you and for us. We are going to send your contract part payment of US4.1 Million to you via diplomatic courier service.
Note: The money is coming on two security proof boxes. The boxes are sealed with synthetic nylon seal and padded with machine. This fund was brought to us from America; it was meant for our Local AFEM market. But since the money was not used, I will use my position as the National Security Adviser to the President to send this fund to you.
