Hello, Pardon my intrusion into your privacy by soliciting for your cooperation to this transaction requiring urgent assistance through the internet knowing fully well how unsafe the internet is. I was left with no other option due to the urgency required. For clarity sake, my name is Dr. Tunde Lemo former Deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. I resigned from my job due to too much political interference from people at the top. Comprehensive details about this will be made known later as we progress to know ourselves better. I have been trying to reach out to a former associate of mine who shares same surname with you. Since my resignattion, I have done all possible means to reach him but all failed. I got your contact from the internet while searching for him and since you share same surname, I think it will be an added advantage to pull through this transaction which can only be completed with person bearing same surname, hence the need to contact you. We had an unfinished over invoiced contract claim then while I was in office, somewhere along the line we encountered some hitches and out of fear he opted out and stopped communicating. I proceeded with the process knowing what it entails to pull through such task. Finally I succeeded in getting the fund released in his name but he is nowhere to be found. What I did before resigning, I made sure the fund was lodged with the vault of security cargo company as I couldn't lodge to my personal account as a civil servant then. I need some one I can present as him to have the fund released. This doesn't require much protocols as I will use my expertise and influence to make sure the fund is released to you on request. I vow and assure you that I will do everything possible to protect your image and personality so that you hard earned reputation will not be muffled in scandal. Like as I had earlier stated, this was an over-invoiced contract payment claim and the amount involved is Twelve Million, Three Hundred Thousand USA dollars only. We can negotiate the sharing formula of this fund and as well sign a memorandum of understanding to protect each others interest on the agreed sharing formula. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible if of interest to you. Kindly mail your full contact details, your name, telephone number and contact address to firstname.lastname@example.org Best regards Dr. Tunde Lemo
