And because of the time we spend with each of you as we help you get your business off the ground, we have limited number of openings available. Here is what you need to do...

This business fell into my lap in September of 1997. I got started as a customer and woke up when my wife made an extra $500 in the first week. At the time I was an Active Duty Marine living paycheck to paycheck making less that $19,000 a year. I was attending college at a local University and had two children. $500 at that time would have been a dream come true. I got started and in our first month I earned $2700 profit, and in the first four months my wife and I made $19,000 profit. I had made more in 4 months than I made in an entire year as an active duty Marine just part time working 10 - 12 hrs a week.

The average person can start earning any where from $25.00 - $75.00 an hour from their home or office computers without dedicating allot of time and effort. Most of us have been thinking it's about time we took advantage of this Internet Craze. Through out the Holidays and especially the last year, every thing that we have seen on Television and heard on the Radio has either started or ended with www. -----------. Com and the reason why is because the Internet has truly simplified shopping, convenience which frees up more time for all of us to turn that time into quality time. Security and convenience has been technologically advanced to give us all the piece of mind. E-Commerce is so rampant right now that most of the states in the U.S. are buying their groceries over the Internet

So, if you are tired of worrying about money and tired of choosing what you can live without, come join the thousands of us working from home, setting our own schedules, making a fortune and living out our dreams. We invite you to explore how the "Work From Home" Internet Program capitalizes on today's advancements in technology to help you build a successful

home-based business.

Have you noticed the surge of people looking to start home-based businesses? Did you know that 32 million households now have home-based businesses and that number grows every day? Have you asked yourself, "Why?" Why are so many people, including yourself, interested in working from home? Our parents never searched for a business to operate from home nor did their friends. So, why now and why is it suddenly so popular?

Americans are "cocooning". We want to spend less time on the busy freeways commuting, and in over-crowded shopping malls and replace that with spending more time at home with our families where it is warm and safe. Apparently, we trust society less and want to protect ourselves and our families from the "cruel" outside world. This is the wave of the future and we are beginning to realize with the advancement in technology, we do not need to be in an office environment in order to access the marketplace and make money. In today's world, the quickest way to build a home-based business is to take advantage of the Internet craze that has hit the United States and is quickly spreading around the world. Like how the Gutenberg Press radically changed the communication world in 16th Century Europe, the Internet is revolutionizing how we communicate, distribute information and the manner in how and where we spend our money. It has been said that those who pursue electronic commerce (business over the Internet) have the opportunity to build an explosive business. While a conventional business can cost thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars to set up and run successfully, an Internet business costs dramatically less and has the potential to attract international business for just a fraction of what the traditional company would spend. On average, 30% of all U.S. web traffic is already international and 5% to 20% of all web sales originate from outside the United States. Everyday, these percentages are radically increasing. Consumers worldwide are spending 6.6 billion U.S. dollars a year in transactions over the Internet. The awareness level and need for users, buyers, advertisers and merchants to get onto the Web, and to set-up shop, has dramatically changed even from one year ago. This medium of doing business is skyrocketing, and we are reaping the benefits, daily. If you combine the Internet craze with people's desire to work from home and set their own schedule, you have a powerful team, and here is why. Many people have heard of SOHO, and no, we don't mean that hip section of New York City, rather the S.O.H.O. which refers to "Small Office/Home Office." One of today's biggest explosions in the economy. The home-based business has been born out of necessity. In an era where large corporations can only think of downsizing, what are your options? There is no security in Corporate America any more! Not only are tens of thousands of workers and managers being downsized out of their companies, but also thousands of men and women are tired of the corporate "rat race" and want to retreat to a home-based business.

If you decide to "stick it out" in Corporate America or the Corporate World, your choices could boil down to finding a lucrative niche in the small business world, standing in line at the unemployment office, or accepting a cut in pay and benefits. We were all raised to give 9 hours work for 8 hours pay, and we are not backing away from that. Today's large companies have no loyalty to the employees. Their only loyalty is to the bottom line. And the bottom line is exactly where most of us are when it's time to cut back. Your life is suddenly turned upside down because you have no control over your future. Someone who has no idea of the quality of your work makes these decisions behind closed doors or the extra time you gave the company without requesting overtime. They don't know about your family's life: they don't understand that you just put braces on your child's teeth and now have to pay for them. These "decision makers" job is to be impersonal and unbiased in all areas except for the company's "best interests." In other words: TO THEM, YOU REALLY DON'T MATTER.

The Great American Dream is gone. Official U.S. government reports indicate that more than 3.5 million jobs have been eliminated in the past 10 years - including over 2000 jobs per day last year alone - and an estimated 55% of all jobs created in the next 10 years will be near minimum wage in stores, restaurants, and bars. 90% of all the people in North America earn less than $40,000 a year and today's two-income family are not living as well as their parents did. So what is the alternative to the to the Great American Job? Richard Poe, former senior editor for "Success Magazine," describes in his recent book that a shift in thinking has resulted in over 14 million people working from home full-time, and another 13 million part-time. This number is increasing by almost 600,000 per year. And the average work from home income is $50,250 per year, about twice the average income of wage earners working for someone else. By the end of the decade over 44% of us will be working from home.

Home based business wage earner's success rate is over 85% compared with small businesses like retail shops and restaurants, at about 95% failure rate after 5 years. Couple that with the flexibility we have to change our schedules and set our hours and then those of us who are parents are now available when our children need us, plus we no longer have the need for the "foster homes" we call day cares, where the care-givers get to see all the "firsts" your child performs. There's no wonder the number of people looking to work from home has skyrocketed. This "New Era" of financial growth is largely due to the latest technologies that are now available to those who desire to work from home. Imagine what it would be like to run an international operation if you so choose, right from the comfort of your own home. Well, this is exactly what we offer! We offer a "freedom" that is available through a constant flow of income that does not depend on the whims of a boss, bonuses or the economy.

Take a look at some of these statistics: At age 50, 75% of the population has less than $5,000 in the bank for retirement. At age 65, 45% of Americans depend on relatives, 30% depend on charities, 23% are still working (most can't afford to quit and work until they are no longer physically capable) and Only 2% are self-sustaining. At the present time, it is impossible to support a family of two working full time at minimum wage! For the first time in history, the current generation is averaging a lower standard of living then their parents! Automation is taking layoffs to record highs!

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that Out of 100 people that start working at the age of 25, by the age of 65... - 1 is wealthy - 4 have enough money to retire - 63 depend on social security or charity - 29 are deceased 95% of people, age 65 and over cannot afford to retire and work until they die!! What Happened to Safety & Security? Why we no longer put our trust & faith in "Big Business". In J. Paul Getty's book "How To Get Rich", his first rule for success is, "You must be in business for yourself. You will never get rich working for someone else." This partly explains why someone starts a new home-based business in the United States every 10 seconds. In the past 14 years alone, the numbers of home-based businesses have grown from 6 million to 32 million with no slow - down in sight. In fact, an estimated 8,493 new home businesses open every day.

The United States is now driven by an information and service economy. Over the past decade, Fortune 500 companies have laid off 4.4 million workers while smaller companies steadily continue to reduce their work forces. As companies continue to downsize and re-organize, many professionals will seek out and search for new ways to take control of their careers. Many of these individuals have forsworn traditional "nine to five" office jobs and are making their homes pay off in more ways than one.

For the entrepreneur, home-based businesses have become the bridge between work- crazed big cities and easy- paced family-oriented small towns. Link Resources Corp. reports that market research shows more than 29 million people run either full-time or part-time businesses from their homes. People used to believe that their livelihood depended on living in big cities near big corporations. That is no longer true, thanks to personal computers, increased phone services, fax machines, and the Internet, it is no longer necessary to live in close proximity to "Big Business". You can now operate that "Big Business" right from your home office. Within the last five to seven years, technology has been brought to an affordable level so that almost everyone has an equal playing field in the work-from-home industry. Check out these Statistics: 11% of the US market is now on the Internet 1,092,000 new people get Internet access each week, while approximately 38% of the US adult population, or 68 million US citizens' currently use the Internet, according to the fall 1999 Cyber Status reports from Mediamark Research Inc. This is an increase of 49% from the prior quarter, and this study only counts people who have used the Internet in the last 30 days.

Ziff-Davis's Technology User Profile reported that there are 60 million PC's connected to the Internet in the US, but home PC's still represent the lion's share of the market, with 68 million consumers hooked up to the Internet. They predict that up to $54 billion US dollars will change hands from business transactions online by year 2001.

We link-up our marketing techniques with something people need, and most of all, something people want.

We provide not only the vehicle that puts you on the road to success, but we also provide the road map. All you have to do is be teachable, have the desire for a better life and be willing to change what you're doing now. 94% of home-based business owners are happier running their own business versus working for someone else. 92% recommend working from home to others. 94% plan to still be running their own business in five years. 20% of home entrepreneurs reported that their businesses grossed between $100,000 and $500,000 last year. 23% paid themselves annual salaries of $65,000 to $350,000. 41% work at home with other family members. 71% think their businesses are doing as well or better than they expected. 79% expect their home-based business revenues to grow this year.

We simply do not have the time to spend with people who are merely curious, which is why we designed this package to provide you with all of the information you will need to make a decision and determine if this is for you. If we spent our time answering e-mail requests for additional information, we'd not only be duplicating the effort we put into developing the decision package, but we'd also be taking valuable time away from running our business and training new people.

You need to make a decision to either give this a shot or to continue down the path you're on. Most likely, if you have read this far, you have already made the decision to make some healthy changes in your life.

We don't have a boss to answer to or a clock to punch.

All you need to do now is take action.

    Tel/Fax: 234 1 774 7907


    23rd Febuary, 2002.

    Request for Urgent Business Relationship.

    First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. We shall be counting on your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of great magnitude involving a pending business transaction requiring maximum confidence.

    We are top officials of the Federal Government Contract Review Panel who are interested in importation of goods into our country with funds which are presently trapped in Nigeria. In order to commence this business we solicit your assistance to enable us RECIEVE the said trapped funds ABROAD.

    The source of this fund is as follows : During the regime of our late head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha, the government officials set up companies and awarded themselves contracts which were grossly over-invoiced in various Ministries. The NEW CIVILIAN Government set up a Contract Review Panel (C.R.P) and we have identified a lot of inflated contract funds which are presently floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N). However, due to our position as civil servants and members of this panel, we cannot acquire this money in our names. I have therefore, been delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues of the panel to look for an Overseas partner INTO whose ACCOUNT the sum of US$31,000,000.00 (Thirty one Million United States Dollars) WILL BE PAID BY TELEGRAPHIC TRANSFER.

    Hence we are writing you this letter.

    We have agreed to share the money thus:

    70% for us (the officials)

    20% for the FOREIGN PARTNER (you)

    10% to be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses.

    It is from this 70% that we wish to commence the importation business. Please note that this transaction is 100% safe in all it's ramifications and we hope that the funds arrive your account in latest ten (10) banking days from the date of reciept of the following information by email: A suitable name and bank account into which the funds can be paid.

    The above information will enable us write letters of claim and job description respectively.

    This way we will use your company's name to apply for payments and re-award the contract in your company name.

    We are looking forward to doing business with you and solicit your confidentiality in this transaction.

    For security reasons and in order to move forward quickly, please respond to me by Tel/Fax: 234 1774 7907 so I can bring you into the complete picture of this pending project. The best response however, would be a telephone call as all that needs to be discussed for the transaction to move ahead swiftly can be realised


    Yours Faithfully,

    Dr. Albert Conde.

Firstly I must solicit your strictest confidence in this subject. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. A member of the Nigeria Export Promotion Council (N.E.P.C.) who was part of the federal government delegation to your country during a trade exhibition gave your particulars to me. I have decided to seek a confidential operation with you in the execution of the deal described hereunder for the benefit of all the parties and hope that you keep it top secret because of the nature of the business. Within the ministry of petroleum resources where I work as a director of engineering and projects, and with the co-operation of four other very top officials, we have under our control as overdue contract payments, bills totaling Thirty One Million United States Dollars, which we want to transfer to a foreign account, with the assistance and co-operation of a foreign company to receive the said funds on our behalf or a reliable foreign individual account to receive the funds.

The source of the fund is as follows: during the last military government here in Nigeria which lasted bout eleven months, government officials set up companies and awarded themselves various contracts which were grossly over-invoiced in various ministries. The present civilian government is not aware of the atrocities committed by their predecessors and as a result, we have a lot of such over invoiced contract payment s pending which we have identified floating at the central bank of Nigeria ready for payment. However by virtue of our position as civil servants, we cannot acquire this money in our names. I was therefore delegated as a matter of urgency by my colleagues to look for an over seas partner into whose account we would transfer the sum of US$31,000,000.00 (THIRTY ONE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) hence we are writing you this letter.

Since the present civilian government is determined to pay foreign contractors l debts owed so as to maintain an amiable relationship with foreign governments and non-government financial agencies. We have decided to include our bills for approval with the co-operation of some officials of the federal ministry of finance (F.M.F) and the central bank of Nigeria (C.B.N). We are seeking your assistance in providing us with a good company account or any other offshore bank account into which we can remit this money by acting our main partner and trustee or acting as the original contractor. This we can do by swapping of account information and changing of beneficiary and other pertinent information to apply for payment. By this act, we would be using your company information to apply for payment, and prepare letters of claim and job description on behalf of your company. This process would be an internal arrangement with the departments concerned. I have the authority of my partners involved to propose that should you be willing to assist us in this transaction, your share as compensation will be us$6.2 million (20%), us$21.7 million (70%) for us and us$3.1 (10%) for taxation and miscellaneous expenses. The business itself is 100% safe, provided you treat it with utmost secrecy and confidentiality. Also your area of specialization is not m hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction. I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me. You may Fax your response to my home fax: 234 1 7597517 to indicate your willingness in assisting us. I will bring the complete picture of the transaction to your knowledge when I have heard from you.

Thanks for your co-operation,

Yours faithfully,

Dr Kano

want to transfer abroad with the assistance and cooperation of a foreign company/individual to receive the said fund on our behalf or a reliable foreign non-company account to receive such funds. More so, we are handicapped in the circumstances, as the South Africa Civil Service Code of Conduct does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in the whole transaction.

This amount $26.5m represents the balance of the total contract value executed on behalf of my Department by a foreign contracting firm, which we the officials over-invoiced deliberately. Though the actual contract cost have been paid to the original contractor, leaving the balance in the

tune of the said amount which we have in principles gotten approval to remit by Telegraphic Transfer (T.T) to any foreign bank account you will provide by filing in an application through the Justice Ministry here in South Africa for the transfer of rights and privileges of the former contractor to you.

I have the authority of my partners involved to propose that should you be willing to assist us in the transaction, your share of the sum will be 25% of the $26,.5 million, 70% for us and 5% for taxation and miscellaneous expenses. The business itself is 100% safe, on your part provided you

Assurance and guarantee that our share will be secured and please remember to treat this matter as very confidential matter, because we will not comprehend with any form of exposure as we are still in active Government Service and remember once again that time is of the essence in this business.

Subject: URGENT



I am Dr. Efe Osagie and I have an urgent and very confidential business

proposition for you. On December, 1997, a Canadian Oil consultant/ contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$25,000,000.00 (Twenty- five Million Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we

discovered from his contract employers, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation that Mr. Barry Kelly died from an automobile accident. On

further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL,

and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore

made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Barry Kelly did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$25,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one has ever come forward to claim it.

According to Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody

applies to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like

you to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Barry Kelly so that the fruits of

this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full

names and address so that the Attorney will prepare the necessary documents

and affidavits which will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of two Attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favour for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the world which you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the

beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 65% for me and 30% for you and 5% be used in settling

taxation and all local and foreign expenses.There is no risk at all as all

the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the Attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address below. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.

Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to

invest my share in your country. I can be reached through this email address .

I do urgently await your response or reach me through my fax 234-1-7597517.

Best regards,

Dr. Efe Osagie.

Dear Friend,

First I will like you to take your time to go over this mail carefully and with patience.

Please, this is a matter of urgency, this is because I need your help and I need it very quickly too. At this stage I will like to introduce my self. I am Dr.Andrew Obaro. I am 55 years old, a Nigerian. Today I am formally retired as the personal accountant to the late head of state of this country Late General. Sani Abacha. Since his demise things have never been the same for us who served under his regime. I cannot leave the country for now because the present government is still investigating huge amounts of funds embezzled by the Late Head of State and remains hostile to his family and properties. Shortly before his death the General gave me a very huge amount of money to be transfered to an off-shore Security company abroad and this I did with the help of his eldest son who is presently being held in detention for human rights violations. You can check the internet to confirm these facts. In any case the funds was successfully transfered and it is currently in a safe deposit abroad. All the papers to legally claim the funds is with my attorney for security purposes and the amount involved in this transfer is US$42,320,000.00 (Forty Two Million, Three Hundred and Twenty Thousand U.S. Dollars). The present government of my country has so far recovered most of the funds transfered by the Late General but they do not and will not have access to this one. This is because the funds is not in a bank like the others already recovered but rather, in a security company and all documents relating to itís existence completely unknown except by me. I have thought about this and I have decided to invest this funds abroad, preferably in your beautiful country and later settle with my family there when all this is over. However, for now I sincerly want your help in the area of investment opportunities in your country in Research, Real estate and properties, computers and other things that will bring real returns for my investment worth. Please, can you help me by recieving the funds as the beneficiary?. There is no risk involved as the funds is already out of Nigeria. All you need is just the papers to put forward before the Security company and the funds will be released to you promptly. These papers I am ready to send to you as soon as I hear from you with personal information about your self. Please, be informed that you will be compensated with US$3,300,000.00 (Three Million, Three Hundred Thousand U.S dollars) of the funds upon collection if you agree to help me, and the rest we can put into business. I await your urgent response. I will furnish you with more information when I have heard from you. Please do furnish me with your phone and fax numbers when responding. Thanks and God bless as I look forward to your favourable reply.

Yours sincerly,

Dr.Andrew Obaro
