ATTN.: THE MANAGING DIRECTOR / C. E.
REQUEST FOR URGENT (CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS
RELATIONSHIP OF THE TRANSFER OF US $45,560,000.00 (FORTY FIVE MILLION,
FIVE HUNDRED AND SIXTY THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY).
I hope this letter will not embarrass
you since we have not had any previous communication. I got your
reference from your country's trade department under private enquiry
that is not related to my aim of writing you this letter and went
further to have it confirmed by the Nigeria Exports Promotion Council
I, on behalf of my other colleagues from
different Federal Government of Nigeria owned parastatals (editor's
note: a company owned by the government) decided to solicit your
assistance as regards the transfer of the above stated amount into
your bank account. This fund arose from the over-invoicing of various
contracts awarded in my parastatals to certain foreign contractors
some time ago.
We as holders of official positions in
various parastatals, were mandated by this new civilian government
to scrutinize all payments made to certain foreign contractors by
the past Military Government and we discovered that some of the
contracts they executed were grossly over-invoiced, either by omission
or commission. Also we discovered that the sum of $65,560,000.00
(Sixty-Five Million, Five Hundred and Sixty Thousand United States
Dollars Only) was lying in a suspense account, although the foreign
contractors were fully paid their entitlements after executing the
said contracts. We all agreed that the over-invoiced amount be transferred
(for our own use) into a bank account provided by a foreign partner,
as the code of conduct of the Federal Civil Service does not allow
us to operate foreign accounts.
However, we have succeeded in transferring
some of these money, precisely US $20,000,000.00 (Twenty Million
United States Dollars Only) into a foreign account in GENEVA (SWITZERLAND).
But unfortunately, the provider of the account has severed all forms
of contacts with us as he has refused to adhere to our earlier mutual
agreement insisting that the total amount be paid into his nominated
bank account before disbursement will take effect. If for US $20M
(Twenty Million United States Dollars Only) we are not compensated,
how can one guarantee full compensation on remittance of the balance
of US $45.560M (Forty-Five Million, Five Hundred and Sixty Thousand
United States Dollars Only).
We are therefore seeking your assistance
based on the balance amount of US$45.560M, which can be speedily
processed and fully remitted into your nominated bank account. On
successful remittance of the fund into your account, you will be
compensated with 25% of the amount for assistance and services and
5% set aside for expenses contingency.
This transaction is closely knitted and
in view of our SENSITIVE POSITION we cannot afford a slip, I assure
you that this transaction is 100% risk free. We will avail you with
our identities as regards our respective offices, when relationship
is fully established and smooth operation commences. I am at your
disposition to entertain any question(s) from you in respect of
this transaction, so contact me immediately through the above private
e-mail addresses( presidency & mail) and fax number for further
information on the requirements and procedure. Please note that
the DEAL needs utmost confidentiality and your immediate response
will be highly appreciated and we will use our own share of the
money to establish a lucrative business in your country.
Please you should contact me immediately
with your private fax and telephone numbers where further details
in respect to this transaction would be sent to. Please you can
also contact me on yahoo at XXXXX.
