URGENT & CONFIDENTIAL
Best wishes of good health and success in your pursuits
particularly through my proposal as contained in this
letter.Before going indetails of my proposal to you, I must
first solicit you to treat it with utmost confidentiality,
as this is required for its success.
My colleagues and I are senior officials of the Federal
Government of Nigeria?s Contracts Review Panel who are
interested in diverting some funds that are presently
floating in the accounts of the Central Bank of Nigeria.In
order to commence this transaction, we solicit for your
assistance to enable us transfer into your account the said
floating funds. We are determined to conclude the transfer
before the end of this financial quarter.
The source of the funds are as follows: During the last
military regime, government officials awarded contracts
that were grossly over-invoiced to
Contractors.The present civilian government set up the
Contract Review Panel, which has the mandate to use the
instruments of payments made available to it by
the decree setting up the panel, to review these contracts
and if necessary pay those who are being owed
My colleagues and I have identified quite a huge sum of
these funds which are presently floating in the Central
Bank of Nigeria ready for disbursement
and would like to divert some of it for our own purposes.
However, by virtue of our positions as civil servants and
members of this panel,we cannot acquire
these funds in our names or in the names of companies
that are based in Nigeria. I have therefore been
mandated, as a matter of trust by my colleagues in the
panel, to look for a reliable overseas partner into whose
account we can transfer the sum of U.S.$16,500,000.00
(sixteen Million,five hundred thousand U.S. Dollars). That
is why I am writing you this letter.
We have agreed to share the money to be transferred into
your account, if you agree with our proposition as follows;
(i) 10% to the account owner (you).
(ii) 80% for us (the panel officials).
(iii) 10% to be used in settling all expenses (by both you
and us )incidental to the actualisation of this project.
We wish to invest our share of the proceeds of this project
in foreign stock markets and other business till we are
ready and able to have access to them.
Please note that this transactionis 100% safe and
risk-free.We intend to effect the transfer within a few
days from the date of receipt of the following information:
Your name, company?s name, address and telephone and fax
numbers, and your banking information. The above
information will enable us write letters of claim
andjob description respectively. This way, we will
use your company?s name to apply for the payment and
backdate the award of the contract to your company.
We are looking forward to doing this transaction with you
and we solicit for your utmost confidentiality in this
transaction. Please acknowledge the receipt
of this letter and, I will bring you into a more detailed
picture of this transaction when I hear from you.
