From: Val Robertson <email@example.com> Subject: Re: your 4br listing on craigslist To: "Dr. Memory" Date: Fri, 3 Feb 2012 06:10:22 -0800 (PST) Hello, I got a contract job in an engineering company for a construction project as part of the structural engineers to build a highrise building in West Africa. I am a Building tech specialist, so my accommodation period in Nigeria will be about 4 years, so that's the reason why i am renting out the unit. I do not intend to make profit out of it all i want is to find a good and clean person to take good care of the place. I`m the owner of the unit and it is furnished but if you want you can make use of your furniture's and help keep mine in the storage locker which is situated both in the unit and in the building and these does not attracts any funds. The monthly rent am requesting for includes all utilities (water, electricity, Internet, cable, 1 parking spots, air conditioning, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, refrigerator, stove, laundry in-suite, washer and dryer) the monthly rent you will be paying includes all this and they will be taken care of as soon as you pay your rent. Everything in this unit is functional and in good working conditions. Once you started staying in the unit and there is any case of any repairs which is as a result of normal faults like leakages, you will get in touch with me and i will get it fixed, i am in possession of the keys to the Home which makes hard for you to view the unit. You can move into the unit when you receive the keys but the only problem is that am the only person who has the keys but i hope that we will be able to reach a compromise on this. ADDRESS TO THE PROPERTY: 1034 Delaware Street, Berkeley CA 94710 TERMS AND CONDITION: The lease is month to month , 6 month or 1yrs and can be renewed ~It can be rented furnished or unfurnished ~ You will have to take good care of my unit Utilities are included in the rent ~Pets Allowed Any further questions please contact and get back to me for the pics of the unit and the application form.

In Jesus' name, I am most happy to have met you. I would be happy to pay you the full year's rent in cash, as I have recently come into a large sum of money left to me by Maryam Abacha, the widow of General Sani Abacha, ex-military Head of State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who died on the 8th of June 1998 of heart problems. Since you are in Nigeria you are undoubtedly familiar with how generous the Abachas were with their estate! Madam Abacha left to me the sum of 30 million dollars US, out of which I could easily fulfill the terms of your lease. As you are currently residing in Nigeria, you would be the perfect person to help me secure the transfer of these funds from the Central Bank of Nigeria to my accounts at Citibank NY. I would like to hire you to be my agent in this matter, for which I will pay you 15% of the total funds once they are transferred. If you are interested, please respond immediately. -Dr. Memory Global Skunkworks Investments, LLC San Francisco, CA
