    I am a former Sony Executive Officer, Mister Suzuki Yamaha. Last year, due to the effects of the Global Recession, I was Forced to Leave my lucrative position at SONY. However, before I left I used my knowledge of the SONY CORPORATE FINANCE structure to place $230 MILLION DOLLARS in a HOLDING ACCOUNT registered to a certain corporation.

    This corporation is a name only. It does not yet exist because I have not found a government I will trust to deal honestly with me. However I am aware of your reputation as an HONEST GOVERNMENT, and I want to offer you the chance to share in this money.

    All you must do is formally register my corporation in your country, naming me as CEO and important shareholder. Once the necessary fees have been paid and I have received my FIRST YEAR OF SALARY from you to appease the LAW of JAPAN, I will legally have full access to the aforementioned money. If you retain eighty percent of the corporate stock, you will be entitled to eighty percent of $230 million dollars which is $184 million dollars USA money.

    I hope you will action this request swiftly, for the sake of us both. I am

    Yours sincerely

    Mr Suzuki Yamaha

  2. Is time d rest of d world start taking Nigeria as a serious minded and transperent nation because without Nigeria d world would be lacking alot, we've much more GOOD to offer than bad, Nigeria of d present is a rebranded entity and until d world at large start bieng rational with there critics about this nation they will only stand d chance of gaining a little 4rm this rich and investment opportunity filled nation called NIGERIA.

  3. I wonder why international media are bent on stereotyping images of nations based on the unrully acts of a few people from such countries. Today most people from islamic nations with their cultural dressing are viewed as terrorists, Hati was recently denegrated as a Vodoo nation, some other nations are named as cummunists and the entire Nigerian peoples viewed as scammers.
    From these generalisation i can only say that a large proportion of the international community are not at all well educated for i believe hasty generalisation is the past time of ignorant fools. Am a Nigerian based in the UK, i know where i came from, i struggled shedding my sweat and blood to escape the clutches of poverty yet I have never taken what never belongs to me, never celebrate any man who does, Nor sought accesses through the back door for anything.
    Yes there are a few ignorant ones, Yes there are a few unrully ones. But i tell you today the greater population of Nigerians are a hard working people with high values, honesty, moral standards, respect and dedication. The world can make a funny face, say the dumbest things or diss us as much as they want. we are not perfect but we know we are far better than what they think.
    Am a Nigerian and i am proud i am. I would never deny my heritage, Gloat all u want finger pointers for the joke is on u as we would lose no sleep over self righteous ill informed ignoramus. WE KNOW WHO WE ARE!
