The lure of easy money never ceases. We here at the Unlock Your Wealth Foundation work tirelessly to make sure you are fully aware of the latest frauds and scams. The following email was received and I am posting it here for you. It is another variety of the Nigerian wire scam. I actually replied to this with bogus information except for the phone numbers just to see what happens and I will update you if I get a response.
To Your Prosperity, Heather Wagenhals

Confidential Business Proposal:
My name is Dr. Samuel Udemba (ESQ) ,I work with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) www.n npc group.com, as Chairman of the Contract Award Committee, I have a business I wish to discuss with you privately.
Please do not be surprised how I got your email address, I collected your private email from an internet profile , I have the privilege to contact you, and to request your assistance to transfer the sum of $120,000,000.00 (One Hundred And Twenty Million United States Dollars) out of Nigeria to your bank accounts in your country for safe keeping on behalf of me and my colleagues.
The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract commissioned, executed, and paid for about five years ago by a foreign contractor, this action was however intentional by me, and my colleagues, and since then the fund has been in a suspense account at The Central Bank Of Nigeria.
We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas ,and that is where you come in, It is important to inform you that as civil servants we are forbidden to operate a foreign account, that is why we require your assistance, the total sum will be shared as follows: 70% for us, 25% for you and 5% for local, and international expenses incidental to the transfer.
The transfer is risk free on both sides, If you find this proposal acceptable, we shall require the following informations from you:
YOUR PRIVATE MOBILE NO………………………..
YOUR PRIVATE FAX NO……………………………..
A COPY OF YOUR NATIONAL PASSPORT FOR IDENTIFICATION.
I guarantee that this transaction will be completed within 10 working days as soon as you accept this proposal, and in support of my proposal I will send to you evidences to prove that my offer is genuine, and with good intention for mutual benefit between the two parties if my proposal to you is accepted.
