I, on behalf of my colleagues from different Federal Government of
Nigeria owned parastatals decided to solicit your assistance as
regards transfer of US$10,500,000.00 (Ten Million,five Hundred
Thousand US Dollars) into your bank account.
These funds emanated from unclaimed contractual proceeds of foreign
contracting firms who could not meet their financial obligations to their
creditors. We, as holders of sensitive positions in our various
parastatals, were mandated by the Federal Government to scrutinise all
payments made to certain foreign contractors and we discovered that some
of the contractors have not been paid their contractual entitlement which
collectively left the sum of US$15,500,000.00 (Fiftheen Million, five
Hundred Thousand US Dollars) lying in a suspended Account.
However, from our investigations, we discovered that the foreign
beneficiary companies have since been liquidated, and to all intents and
purposes no longer exist in Nigeria, thus providing us with this
opportunity, provided that we have a capable partner, to execute a
transaction of this nature.
We agreed that the said amount would be transferred into an overseas
Bank Account to be provided by a reliable foreign firm/associate. This
is because as serving Government workers the Civil Service Code does
not allow us to operate foreign Account. In our initial attempt to do
this, we succeeded in transferring part of this amount US$5m (Five
Million Dollars) into a United States Dollar Account in Beirut,
Lebanon, but our foreign associate failed to honour our mutual
agreement insisting instead that the total amount be transferred into
the Account before we can share the money. As a result, we have lost
confidence in the ability of our Lebanese partner to see this matter to
its logical conclusion, and until the initial transaction is
satisfactorily resolved, we have cancelled further transactions with
In the light of the foregoing, it is clear that we require a partner that
is not only capable of rendering assistance and cooperation in executing
this matter, but will honour the terms of agreement when we reach the
concluding stages of this transaction. We therefore offer the amount of
20% of the entire sum in return for services/assistance rendered in
successfully carrying out this project. We trust that you appreciate the
sensitive nature of this matter and the need for initial caution on our
part, but when a relationship is confidently established and operations
commence you will be provided with all relevant information.
I remain at your disposal to entertain any questions/enquiries relating
to this proposition and you may contact me as a matter of urgency via
e-mail for further information on the procedures and requirements of
In your reply, remember to indicate a safe telephone number where I
can always reach you.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Please treat with the strictest confidentiality and expediency
