I'm being e-mailed by royalty now!
You all have to look at me with a new found sense of wonder and awe.
(If I knew how to catagorize this would go under trash; but in case the Princess (and goodness knows how many others) hasn't contacted you yet, have a laugh.)
The Palace of King of Ogoni Kingdom, Ogoni Oil producing community,
Rivers State Nigeria.
Dear Sir, I am Princess Ifeoma Abonime , daughter of
HRH King Solomon Abonime,the king of Ogoni Kingdom. I am 25 years old and studying Mass Communication.
My father was the king of Ogoni Kingdom the highest oil producing area
in Nigeria. He was in charge of reviving royalties from the multi-national oil companies and government on behalf of the oil
producing communities in Nigeria.
After the hanging of the Ogoni Nine(9) including Ken Saro Wiwa by the
late dictator General Sani Abacha, my father battled with stroke and finally died in NOVEMBER 27th LAST year.
But before his death, he called me and told me he has One Hundred and
Five Million United States Dollars Only (USD105,000,000.00) cash in his
possession, specially deposited here in an Ocean Investment Trust
He advised me not to tell anybody except my mother whom he loved and being the last of the (8) eight wives that he married. My mother did not
bear any male child for him.
Which implies that all my father's properties, companies e.t.c., we
have no share in them because my mother has no male child
according to African Tradition. My father therefore secretly gave me all
the relevant documents of the said money, and told me that I should use this money with my mother and my younger sisters because he knows that
tradtionally, if he dies we cannnot get anything, as inheritance.
He importantly advised me that I should seek foreign assistannce and
that I should not invest this money here in Nigeria because of his other wives and male children who happen to be my elders. I am soliciting for your immediate assistance to get a Bungalow for us, where I will live
with my mother and two younger sisters and further advise me where and
how I will invest the balance money overseas, possibly on products of your company and other profitable ventures.
I believe that by the special grace of God, you will help us move this
money out of this country to your country where we can invest this money judiciously with you.
You are entitled to a reasonable part of this money
based on our agreement, and God will bless you as you help us. PLease reply through my e-mail
Looking forward to hear from you as soon as possible.
Anyone wanting to lose their shirt, just ask. I'll send you the "princess's e-mail addy."
