STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL
RE: TRANSFER OF US$21.5 MILLION (TWENTY ONE
MILLION,FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND US
First, I must solicit your confidence in this
transaction, this is by virtue of its nature as being
utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know
that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that
all will be well at the end of the day. We have
decided to contact you by e-mail due to the urgency of
I am a member of the Federal Government of Nigeria
Contract Award and Monitoring Committee in the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporatio(NNPC).
Sometime ago, a contract was awarded to a foreign firm
in NNPC by my Committee. This contract was over
invoiced to the tune of US$21.5M. U.S. Dollars. This
was done deliberately. The over-invoicing was a deal
by my committee to benefit from the project. We now
want to transfer this money which is in a suspense
Account with NNPC into any Overseas Account which we
expect you to provide for us.
For assisting us in this deal, you will be entitled to
30% of the money,60% will be for me and my partners
while 10% has been mapped out from the total sum to
cover any expenses that maybe incurred by us during
the course of this transfer, both locally and
I would require-
1. Your Company's Name,Address,Tel.& Fax. Numbers.
2. Your Bank Account Number and Address where the
money will be remitted.
The above information would be used to make formal
applications as a matter of procedure for the release
of the money. It does not matter whether or not your
company does contract projects of this nature
described here. The assumption is that your company
won the major contract and subcontracted it out to
other companies. More often than not, big trading
companies or firms of unrelated fields win major
contracts and subcontracts to more specialized firms
for execution of such contracts.
We have strong reliable connections and contacts at
the Apex Bank(Central Bank of Nigeria), as well as the
Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no doubt that
all the money will be released and transferred if we
get the necessary foreign partner to assist us in this
deal. Therefore,when the business is successfully
concluded we shall through our same connections
withdraw all documents used from all the concerned
Government Ministries for 100% security.
We are ordinary civil servants and we will not want to
miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to get rich.
We want this money to be transferred to your nominated
bank for us, before the present Democratic Government
start Auditing all Federal Government owned
Please contact me immediately through my alternative
email above whether or not you are interested in this
deal. If you are not,it will enable me scout for
another foreign partner to carry out this deal. But
where you are interested, send the required documents
aforementioned herein through my above my alternative
email, as time is of the essence in this business.
I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.
Mr. fred abu
