|Name: Mrs Dallinger
Dear Mr Umbuku Please excuse any email fau pas I
may make as this is only the second email I have
ever written. Isn't it exciting? I was so sorry to hear
about your plight with the Nigerian authorities and
the subsequent demise of your mother, it must be a
very difficult time for you my dear. My husband was
saying only yesterday that the pond needed a new
liner and the amount of money you are offering is
quite staggering. Those Nigerian authorities have no
right to withhold all that money, especially as it
belongs to your family. Mr Dallinger has asked that I
reply to you and confirm that the amount you wish to
place into our bank account is indeed $645,00000? It
does seem rather a lot. I look forward to your reply.
Your sincerely Mrs D Dallinger
Admin reply: Dear Mrs.Dallinger, I am afraid you missed a nought off the end. The true figure is $64,000,000.00 and I assure you that all this money was honestly earned. I branched out last year and now have two mobile emporiums placed in separate markets. Trade is brisk, between the swarms of flies (Oh, how I shall be glad to be rid of them when I meet you in England!). I shall be leaving my 13 brothers in law to mind the hardware dept. and their wives to manage the perishable goods mobile emporium.
Would you be so good as to please buy me a Rolls Royce motor car and have it waiting for me on the dock at Southampton?
