Dear Sir,


I write this to inform you of my desire to acquire estates or landed properties in your country on behalf of the Director of Contracts and Finance Allocation of the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing in Nigeria.

Considering his very strategic and influential position, he would want the transaction to be strictly confidential. He further wants his identity to remain undisclosed at least for now, until the completion of the transaction. Hence, our desire to have an overseas agent. I have therefore been directed to inquire if you would agree to act as our overseas agent in order to actualize this transaction.

The deal, in brief, is that the funds with which we intend to effect our proposed investments in your country is presently in a coded account at the Nigeria Apex Bank (i.e. the Central Bank of Nigeria) and we need your assistance to transfer the funds to your country in a convenient bank account that will be provided by you before we can put the funds into use in your country.

For this, you shall be considered to have executed a contract for the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing in Nigeria for which payment should be effected to you by the Ministry. The contract sum of which shall add up to US$26.4 Million, of which your share shall be 30% on your assent to the proposal.

Sequel to the successful execution of this transaction,we hope to use our share of the proceeds
to invest [with your assistance]in real estates in your country and elsewhere.Be assured that this transaction is totally risk-free and all procedures must be legitimate in order to facilitate its realization.

If you are interested and capable of handling a transaction of this nature that entails absolute discretion and trustworthiness,please contact me promptly for further briefing on its actuation.You will have to furnish me with the following information for easy communication:

1. Your company name and address
2. Your personal fax number
3. Your personal telephone number.

Your swift response will be appreciated. Thank you in anticipation of your cooperation.

Yours faithfully,
