Write her back. Tell her that you would like to help ..but, unfortunately, you're already an acting administrator for a US based victim compensation fund ..and are having too much trouble contacting viable victims yourself. With $2.6B to distribute, you don't know how you could cope with another $100k US$.

Remember all of those programs aimed at pushing computers and internet access to poor African countries (particularly Nigeria) in order to help bring them into the digital age? This is the result. Good day sir.
