I’m sorry there have been no blog items since Thursday but I was involved in something very important. Musa al-Mustapha of Nigeria emailed me. It’s really a sad story about how his father received $18 million from former dictator General Sani Abacha, but then the father died, and you know those court systems!! One thing led to another and now Mr. al-Mustapha asked my help in getting the money out of the country. I usually don’t work on commission but this time I’m looking a $1.8 million!! I have no idea who referred me but I’m just flattered he thought of me, when Trusts and Estates isn’t even my field!! As soon as I can get together some kind of “good faith deposit” or something I start. Sort of a reverse retainer thing. I guess that’s how the “really rich” do business!!
