Another Scam: Rolex Company

Dear Friend,

I am Dr William Peru the project director of Rolex watch Industry situated at
124 New Bond Street in London Tel: +447011136015.

We are intrested to coming in to Nigeria in search of raw material named OPAL
but we have not been to your country Nigeria for the first time and our High
Commission advised that we should look for a local Representative or Agent who
will assist us to make inquiry of the product before we start coming to avoid
falling into a wrong hand in Nigeria.

However when we placed our advert on internet that we got reply from Japan
that Nigeria is highly blessed with mineral resources, that there is a Mining
Company called Co-operative Mining Nig Ltd that deals with the material in
Nigeria. They said that the General Manager (GM) of the company is called Chief
Engr CLEMENT ONU with Tel: 08182363484.

We would like you to call the company on our behalf and make inquiry of the
product OPAL and if the inquiry is true place order for 1000 units for us,
ascertain the price they sell in your country and try to know their location so
that if the inquiry is through we can then discuss your commission and how we
are going to come into Nigeria through your direction.

Please we formally buy this product from Liberia and Afghanistan at the cost
of $1,250 USD per units and try to ask them the price in dollar and don't let
them know that you have foreign interest to avoid price inflection. Try to call
me when you are through.

Yours faithfully
Dr. William Peru (Project Director)
