I got to know you through a foreign trade office in London, During my
official trip last year.
I am DR LARRY WILLIAMS- audit committee, with the Nigerian Ministry of
Agriculture two years ago, I headed the audit panel whose assignment was
audit, review and recommend payment for all contracts awarded in the FMA by
the corrupt past military administration.
In the course of our review, we discovered that the sum of USD 30 million
(THIRTY MILLION DOLLARS) was floating in the corporation account without
This money emanated from over-invoicing in the contract awarded to a foreign
firm for the supply,fixing, errecting and computerized optimization of oil
pipeline to one of our oil refineries during the past military
administration. Base on our status as senior government officials in top
sensitive position of trust, we cannot stand to claim this money
ourselves,hence, I decided to contact you.
Accordingly, I have consulted and held meetings with some key officials of
the corporation, Federal Ministry of Finance and Central Bank of Nigeria and
we decided to involve a gentle, honest trustworthy and competent partner
overseas who could provide two units of KTT COMPUTERONIC DISKETTE SMDB 3000
STORAGE FACILITY, CAPACITOR 1190.
This is special in built diskette with its own software for transfering
money worldwide. This is not an ordinary floppy diskette, but made for
automatic machine for money transfer.
All modalities for this transfer have been fully worked out. We have already
secured a preliminary order to effect this payment, we now require from you
your BANKING PARTICULARS, FAX AND TELEPHONE NUMBER for smooth transfer of
this money into your bank account.
We intend to share the money in the following manner: 30% for you, 60% for
us and 10% for any miscellaneous expenses in getting the diskette.
This business is100% risk-free.REPLY TO; email@example.com
We look forward to a fruitful business relationship with you.
