Default 93% return on your investment!!!

Fantastic!!! Unbeatable!!!

Earn 93% per annum on your life savings.................

............... all you have to do is buy the Nakheel sukuk bond that matures in December this year!!!

The market is so sure Nakheel won't be able to repay the maturing debts that they have driven the bond price down to such a low level that it will yield 93% p.a. to anyone brave enough to buy it, and lucky enough to get his money back!!!

Go on - what are you waiting for???

hmm, yeah... gosh, now I don't know whether to go for that or this business proposal!

Dear Friend,
My name is EMMANUEL SAMUEL, I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$30m dollars (THIRTY Million US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (ENGR. STEVEN MOORE from AUSTRALI) who died along with his entire family in Jully 2005 in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after four years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foriegn account , 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me Thereafter,
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter for more information.
Yours Faithfully,
EMMANUEL SAMUEL

Good point, he wouldnt want to be likened to those mugu Nigerians... They will scam you and ask you for money, you know... Not like this nice banker......

But if that doesnt work out for you, could I interest you in a wonderful new development in Dubai? All we need is your life savings and, every month, Ill take a picture of another block that is actually under construction and imply its your one....
