Since I observed that the war has taken a drastic shape and it will be very difficult to resolve the crises and restore my Boss Col Muammar Gaddafi to Power. I have been able to divert a Crude Oil payment to unknown destination for safe keeping. This will now serve as my gratuity and establishment in life, since he has been very cruel and wicked to us.
I have been subjected to so many difficult tasks by his tyrant attitude and neglect to mankind. That is why I am soliciting for your kind understand to assist me receive in your custody the sum of Eleven Million and Seven Hundred and Sixty Thousand United States Dollars ( US$11.760 Million) for my establishment and subsequent disbursement in your country as I do not intend to return back even after the war.

I look forward towards a healthier business opportunities with you in any area that will be profitable. This will be 100% risk free transaction
(The gimmick is opening a joint account to transmit the money, requiring you to put some money in the account to make it work. Guess what happens next. Editor)
