Dear Sir,

First I must solicit your strictest confidence in
this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature
as being utterly confidential and "top secret". We
are top officials of the Federal Government Contract
Review Panel who are interested in importation of
goods into our country with funds that are presently
trapped in Nigeria. In order to commence this
business, we solicit your assistance to enable
us transfer into your account the said-trapped funds.
The source of the fund is as follows:During the
regime of the last Military transitional government of
Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, government officials
set up companies and awarded themselves
contracts which were grossly over invoiced in various ministries.
The present democratic government of President
Olusegun Obasanjo set up the Contract Review Panel and
we have identified a lot of inflated contract funds
that are presently floating in the Central Bank of
Nigeria ready for payment. However, by virtue of our
positions as civil servants and members of this panel,
we cannot acquire this money in our names.My
colleagues in the panel have therefore delegated me as
a matter of trust, to look for an oversea partner into
whose account we would transfer the sum of
US$31,320,000.00 (Thirty-one Million, Three Hundred
and Twenty thousand United States Dollars) which we
hope to use in purchasing Agro Allied Equipment, and
also to enable us to own properties and invest in the
stable economy of your country. Hence, we are sending
you this email message.
We have agreed to share the money thus:

1. 20% for the account owner (you)
2. 70% for us (the officials of the CRP)
3. 10% to be used in settling taxation and all local
and foreign expenses.

Please acknowledge receipt of this message for proper
briefing on the safe modality for the execution of this project.
I await your eager response.

Yours faithfully,

Chief Edward Brume.
