Dear Sir,


First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue of it's nature as being utterly confidential and top secret as you were introduced to us in confidence through the Nigerian Chamber of Commerce, foreign trade division. and if the contents of this mail does meet with your approval, I humbly crave your indulgence. I am recently retired as the director of finance of the Federal Ministry Of Power & Steel (FMP&S).

During my tenure, I was also in charge of the tenders board. The job of the tenders board was to access bids made to the FMP&S by foreign and local contractors for execution of contracts, recommend to the government for award.

In the course of our work at the tenders board, we received a bid of (USD41.8M) from Arab Contractors Company of Egypt for the refurbishing of the six terminals flow stations and the supply of 27KVA transformers for the south-western part of the country. The bid was unsually low for the contract in question considering the other bids we had gone through. The tenders board then invited them for an appraisal of their bid. After the appraisal, we the five members of the tenders board agreed to recommend them for the award of the contract only if they increase thier bid to USD60M. The balance USD18.2M was to be paid to us (the members of the tenders board)after the execution of the contract for us. Not trusting the contractors to live up to their own part of the bargain, we established the above mentioned company and had them su-contract the USD18.2M to the company as a sub-contract. The deed of sub-contract was perfected by a notary public and copies circulated to the FMP&S and the central bank of Nigeria (CBN). Arab contractors have executed the whole contract and have been paid off, leaving the balance USD18.2M. Considering the amount of the fund involved we cannot ask the CBN to pay directly into our local bank account as the bank regulatory bodies will want to know the directors of the company. Though I am retired, my other four partners are still in government employ. I have therefore been mandated as a matter of trust by my partners to source for a business partner to whom we could transfer the sum of USD18.2M by drawing up a letter of domiciliation instructing the concerned Government parastatals i.e the FMP&S and CBN to pay into the partner's account the contractual entitlement of USD18.2M. You will agree with me that a letter of domiciliation is an accepted form of doing business worldwide.

Should this transaction interest you, you are to contact me on this personal e-mail address or call my private phone number:- 234 80 3327 8298, so that I can brief you fully, and discuss your renumeration for this undertaking.
All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for the smooth conclusion of the transaction within ten to fourteen days of commencement after receipt of the following information:

Your full names/ company name, address, company's details & activities, telephone & fax numbers. These information will enable us make the applications and lodge claims to the concerned ministries & agencies in favour of your company and it is pertinent to state here that a legally binding contract will be entered by all parties involved, this is to safeguard our mutual interest.
Note that your line of business does not matter in this regard.
Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter as soon as possible.

Yours Faithfuly,

Engr.Williams Abu.
