Dr Bello Momodu claims to work in a contracting office for the nigerian national petroleum corp. and has extra money laying around that was used for contracts. All I had to do was send him all my personal information including bank acount and he would wire me $16,500,000 into the account of which I would receive 30% for my cooperation. They would use the remaining money themselves to invest in business in this country.

when I ask for something in writing on official letterhead, this guy emailed me a hand-written guarrantee on official letterhead with a seal on the bottom. At no time did he ask for money, but I am real sure it was coming. he even wanted to talk to me on the telephone but I declined. how can this guy think stealing money and having me help him think this is not illegal escapes me.

thank you for you website.

This is a common scam

AUTHOR: Preston - (U.S.A.)

This is a very common scam. I receive probably 3-5 of these offers a week in my email inbox. The reason they do it is some people will fall for it because of greed.

NEVER give out any personal information in any transacation you did not initiate yourself.

And also, if you go to the bank, never say your account number out loud. Someone might be on a cell phone picking up your account number.
