For your kind attention.


First I must solicit your utmost confidentiality in this transaction.I am making this contact with
you based on
reliable information available to us,courtesy of the internet business index and confirmed
locally by our
chamber of commerce and industry,thus we are convinced that you would be capable of
providing us with a
solution to a money transfer transaction of US$36,400,000.00 (Thirty-Six Million,Four
Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars).
Source:During the last military regimes here in Nigeria,government officials set up companies
and awarded
themselves contracts that were to be paid from the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) set up by
the military regime for
the purpose of financing special projects and these were grossly over-invoiced.The present
civilian government
have constituted an Interim Management Committe (IMC) with the mandate to investigate all
contracts awarded
as well as carry out debt verification of all claims that have not yet been paid with a view of
settling all legitimate
debts owed by the Federal Government of Nigeria to both local and foreign contractors
before the government
wind up the Trust Fund.We as members of this committee have identified a lot of inflated
contract funds which
are presently floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria.In the mean- time,the government have
already made a
budget allocation for the payment of these contracts,but by virtue of our position as civil
servants and members
of this panel,we cannot acquire this fund in our names.I was delegated as a matter of trust
by my colleagues to
look for an overseas partner into whose account we would transfer the funds totalling
(USD36,400,000.00) and
you will be adequately compesated with 25% of the entire sum, hence we are writing you
this mail.
The present Civilian Government is determined to pay foreign contractors all debt owed so
as to maintain an
amiable relationship with both the Foreign Governments and Non Government Finanacial
Agencies and to attract
foreign investment into our economy.We have decided to include our bills for approval with
the co-operation of
some officials of the Federal Ministy of Finance (F.M.F) and the Central Bank of Nigeria
(C.B.N.). We seek
your assistance in providing us with a good company account or personal account into
which we can remit this
money,you will be acting as an ORIGINAL CONTRACTOR in this deal, the fund will be paid
to you. This we
can do by SWAPPING of account information and changing of beneficiary information to
apply for payment.
We prepare letters of claims and job description on your behalf,on receiption of the following
information (your
banker's name and address,account number,your telephone and fax numbers).
It is our intention therefore,while having your understanding and co-operation to invest 70%
of this funds in pulp
and paper manufacturing plant for worldwide distribution and importation of agricultural and
oil prospecting
equipment to sub-western region of Africa.While the balance 5% will cater for all local and
foreign expenses
incurred in facilitating the transfer of this funds.
