From the desk of:
Lagos, Nigeria.


After due deliberation with my colleagues, I have decided to forward to you this business proposal. We want a reliable person who could assist us to transfer the sum of Twenty Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars ($20,500,000) into his/her account.

This fund resulted from an over-invoiced bill from contracts awarded by us under the budget allocation to my Ministry and this bill has been approved for payment by the concerned authorities. The contract has since been executed, commissioned and the contractor was paid the actual cost of the contract. We are left with the balance US$20.5M as part of the over-invoiced amount which we have deliberately over estimated for our own use. But under our protocol division, civil servants are forbidden to operate or own foreign accounts. This is why I am contacting you to be our custodian for this fund.

As you may want to know and to make you less curious, I got your address from a site in the internet that portrayed you (your establishment) in good light. I am the Chief Accountant/Internal Auditor of the Contract Award Committee (C.A.C.) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC). This transaction is very much free from all sorts of RISKS and TROUBLE from my Government. We the N.N.P.C. Officials involved in this deal have put in many years in service to this Ministry. We have been exercising patience for this opportunity for so long and to us, this is a life time opportunity we cannot afford to miss. You need not to worry about the responsibilities of transferring this fund into your account, because all the administrative step needed for the transfer of this fund into your designated bank account will be done by me. We have agreed to COMPENSATE you duly if agreement is reached by both of us.

My colleague and I will come to your country to arrange for our share, upon the confirmation from you that the money has been credited into your nominated bank account. Consequent upon your acceptance of this proposal, kindly confirm your interest by sending me a revert email via the email accounts below (rayuzor@rediffmail.com) Your indication by revert email to me of your sincere and serious interest will enable me send you the PROCEDURE FOR OPERATION.

NOTE: In the event of your inability to handle this transaction please inform us so that we can look for another reliable person who can assist in this respect.

It might surprise you why we choose you and trusted you for this transaction. Yes, we believe that good friends can be discovered and business like this can not be executed without trust. This is why we have decided to trust you for this transaction. We are looking forward to doing this transaction with you. Be further informed that everybody's interest and security had been considered before you were contacted, so be rest assured and feel free to go into this transaction with us. But let Honesty and Trust be our watchword throughout this transaction and your prompt reply will be highly appreciated.

Thank you and God bless.

Best Regards,
