} My Dear Mr. Obo (or should I call you Manny?):
} I have in hand another letter, one in which I am promised matrimony. It
} appears to be from a Nigerian widow, a Mrs. Griselle Ojobijou, who
} claims once to have been substantially wealthy. She has money tied up
} in her late husband's estate. Apparently he was a wealthy banker who
} "acquired" assets entrusted to him.
} She would like US$48,000,000 in untraceable notes to rescue the estate
} (worth over US$500,000,000) from the inspector's office. Those coins
} would do quite well.
} Let me know if you are interested. If you are more or less unmarried
} this looks like a chance for a particularly lucrative union.
} Most Sincerely Yours,
} T. Internet Oracle
