Well got another email from some of my friends in Nigeria letting me know once again that I could be in for a nice windfall of money, this time however no-ones died and left it to me, something I’m quite happy about as it’s not nice to receive money because someones died.
So if no-ones died where’s the money come from, well it seems that some was destined to be paid to me as part of a contract award was in a bank for a long time and it acquired a hefty amount of interest while it was in there and the nice Bank Manager thinks that I should get it as he thought it unfair that Ididn’t get the contract, so he’s decided to give it to me, isn’t that sweet.
Anyway heres his nice letter in its entirety, notice the excellent grammar and construction of the letter, its hard to believe that English is his first language . .
