concerned ministry. The contracts had been executed and
commissioned. What we are about to receive now, is a promised cash
gift from the contractors whom we have helped during the
process of obtaining the contracts and in the processing of
their payments. On our part, all modalities have been worked
out in ensuring a smooth conclusion of the transfer to
you within the next twenty one days. All I want from you
is your details to enable these foreign contractors forward
the cash gift to you on our behalf, because as government
officials we cannot collect these cash gift directly from them,
neither are we allowed by law to operate/run foreign

If you can assist me in receiving this cash gift I will like you to provide your your contact information through which he can reach you.

Please note that there will be no financial obligation required from you and this transaction is risk free. For each cash you receive on our behalf, you will be entitled to 10% of that sum.

From: Add to Address Book

#43(C) Queen's Drive,
Ikoyi - Lagos.

Introduction: I am Mrs. Mariam Ovie I know this proposal will come to
youas a surprise because we have not met before either physically or
through correspondence. I have no doubt in your ability to handle this proposal involving huge sum of money based on your profile through the internet.

The Subject: My husband Chief Akpofa Ovie (now late) was the royal head
of my community, Jesse (an oil rich town)in Nigeria. My late husband's
community produces 3.5% of the total crude oil production in Nigeria and 0.5% of the dollar value of each barrel is paid to my husband as royalty by the Federal Government. My husband was also the Chairman of the OMPADEC, Jesse Branch, he made some money, which he left for me and my children as the only thing to inherit. The money is Thirty Million United States Dollars (US$30,000,000.00).

Though this said fund accumulated between the periods 1980 - 1998. Due to poor banking system in Nigeria and political instability as a result of past military rules (1985 - 1999), he desposited this money in a strong room/safe with an open beneficiary in a Finance House here in Nigeria pending when he would finish arrangement to transfer it abroad as CONTRACT PAYMENT. He was planning this when he died last year of Heart Attack.

Since the death of my husband my health deteroiated considerably.

The Proposal: Just before my husband died he called my attention to the
money and charged me to look for a foreigner who would assist me in the
transfer/investment of the funds abroad. So I would be very grateful if
you could accept to help me achieve this great objective. I promise to
give you 15% of the total funds transferred to your vital bank account as
compensation for your assitance.

To indicate your interest, contact me urgently and confidentially for
more information and the roles you will play in this business.All legal
information concerning this money will be sent to you as soon as we agree to work together.

If this proposal satisfies you, please provide me immediately with your
full names, telephone and fax numbers to enable my eldest son Mr. Tony Ovie contact you.He shall handle this transaction from beginning to the end on behalf of the family.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs. Mariam Ovie.

Yup, we both receive emails don't we Cappy!

I believe you. As we all know, the address in the address line can NEVER be faked or spoofed. When I receive junk mail with my own email addy as the sender, it's because I run pyramid and diet pill schemes in my sleep, like a capitolist Tyler Durden.

I also believe you served in teh military.

And the results are in. Thanks to the hearing and the issues raised, the US State Department sided with Sinn Fein and is forcing the british government to open an inquiry into the murders.

Inquiry into Nelson murder opens

An inquiry into the murder of Northern Ireland solicitor Rosemary Nelson has opened in County Armagh.
Mrs Nelson died after loyalists planted a booby-trap bomb underneath her car outside her Lurgan home in March 1999.

Retired judge Sir Michael Morland is chairing a three-strong panel examining alleged security force collusion. It will hear evidence next spring.

One of the Nelson family's solicitors, Barra McGrory, said it had been "a long road" for the family.

"We will give it every cooperation, and we sincerely hope that it will succeed in its clear and stated intention to get to the truth of the full circumstances of Rosemary's murder - we certainly wish it well," he said.

Sir Michael made an opening statement to the inquiry outlining how it would be conducted.

Sir Michael and his colleagues - ex-chief constable of South Wales Sir Anthony Burden and Dame Valerie Strachan, former chair of the board of Customs and Excise - will examine allegations that police ignored death threats against Mrs Nelson.



-A Catholic solicitor who came to prominence representing high profile cases
-These included working for the nationalist Garvaghy Road Residents Coalition in the dispute with Orangemen over Drumcree
-The 40-year-old mother-of-three was killed in a booby-trap car bomb near her home on 15 March 1999
-A splinter loyalist group, the Red Hand Defenders, said it carried out the murder
