My name is Fred Smith, I am from Nigeria. let me start by saying that unlike other Nigerian scam artists I am about as honest has one could get.
I WANT TO EXTRACT ALL OF YOUR MONEY, it's true but I want to do it in an refreshingly Honest, Upfront and "Cards on the Table, way."
Here is my story (Yarn):
My great uncle Ugenyemi was tragically killed in a unicycle accident whilst he was in the employment of Lagos State Circus. An elephant, tragically, accidently trod on him, and he was "flattened to a pancake.." but.. even SADDER is the fact that he never left a will.
I won't beat about the bush further, I need you to transfer
$500,000.00 to my bank account in Estonia. Do it without thinking and God will pay your kindness back in shovel loads my fiend (freudian slip but honest with it!:-).
Interested parties should send the monies by Western Union. Reply to this message ASAP with confirmation that you have the $850,000.00 and I will forward the relevent details to you and everyone will be happy my fiend.
God Bless You!
