Mr MR. George Omoruyi.,
Ive been getting offers like yours lately a lot, but I did nt have the time to
Your offer sounds honest and believable, much better then similar ones I've been
getting lately. I think I'd be interested, if you convince me that everything is
the truth. You can send e-mail, but .... today I'll be working from the office
at home. It is actually the home of my father in low,so you should call here, at
+30 xxxx xxxx, my father in low's personal assistant Dimitris will answer, he
does not speak very good English, so in order to put you directly to me and not
to put you on hold, tell him (slowly!) the password for me : "I - DEE - GAH -
MEE - SOU - KIT - SO". You'll be connected to me straight away.
I just spoke to Dimitris again, and he said, that if it is difficult for you you
may say first the code (ID) for me - "KIT-SO-I-DEE" and then the basic code "GAH-MEE-SOY".
Let me help you with pronouncing:
KIT- read it "keet" or like the beggining of the word "kitten"
SO- read it like the word "so" in english
I- read it like just like "I" or "eye" in English
DEE- read it simply as it is or just "D", it comes from ID-(identification
GAH-read it like the beggining of the English word "garbage"
MEE-read it like "Me" with a litle longer e
SOU-read it like the word "soul", without saying L

Dear Nash Chovek,
Thanks for your reply, truely it may sound false but all we have told you in my
previous mail is just the whole truth. I will prove my claims to beyond any
doubt, i.e. by sending to you things like, (1) my foto, (2) my I.D Card from
nnpc, (3) my full residencial address and telephone so that you can verify my
Futher more, I think we will run into troubled waters if we use your father
inlaw's telephone for this transaction without his consent. Reason, the Ministry
of Finance and the Central bank of Nigeria, will not be able to do just like I
will do as an indiviual. Also we need a complete package for this issue, i.e.
fax, telephone, address, bankers' information etc. We realy want to do this
transaction with you, so ckech if that could be any hitch as per the afore
mentioned an let me know.
Mr. George Omoruyi. --

Daer Omoruyi George,
All the info for me I can send to you soon, and I want to know if my personal
account in LAIKI bank here is OK, or I have to open a new one?
It should not be difficult at all to get to me!
The telephone I gave to you is secure, and it is mine as much as Haralampy's,
everybody pays his share!!! And he has no way to listen and check my calls, I
made it sure last year, when we quarreled!
Don't you worry, my friend, I guarantie for it!
This is the only telephone you can get me, because I do not use mobile, I have
headache from it!-it is a lie that they are harmless!
You asked for confidentiality, and if I am going to make an international call,
I can not use my private office line, but through the central, and my father in
low must not know about our deal untill I have the money in my hands!
So, if it is not too difficult for you trie calling again!
I'll be waiting for your call, or, if you can not, your mail.
