Dear Sir,
First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction.  This is by virtue of its nature as 
being utterly confidential and top secret.  I got your contact in my private search  for a reliable 
person to handle this  transaction. We shall base this transaction on mutual respect and honesty. 
Hence,it is neccessary for you to assure us of your ability  to prosecute this transaction of  
great magnitude,your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of great magnitude 
involving a pending business transaction requiring maximum confidence.
We are top officials of the Federal Government Contract Review Panel who are interested in 
importation of goods into our country with funds which 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 this fund is as follows:  During the last  Regime of our late President Alhaji Shehu 
Yaradua here in Nigeria, the government officials set up companies and awarded themselves contract 
which were grossly over-invoiced in various Ministries.  As a result the present Government of Dr. 
Goodluck Jonathan  deemed it neccessary to set up a Contract Review Panel to investigate and 
recommend accordingly. After a thorough investigation, we discovered a lot of  inflated contract 
funds which are presently floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria. We (members) have unanimously 
agreed to transfer part of these funds to a foreign account  However, by virtue of our position as 
civil servants and members of this Panel, we cannot acquire this money in our names.  I have 
therefore, been delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues in the Panel to look for an 
Overseas partner into whose account we would transfer the sum of US$40,000,000.00 (Forty Million 
US. Dollars).  Adequate l
 ogistics and strategies had been 
We have agreed to share the money thus:

1.    25% for the account owner (you)
2.    65% for us (the officials)
3.    10% to be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses.
It is from this 65% that we wish to commence the importation business, please note that this 
transaction is 100% safe and we hope to commence and conclude the transfer latest in ten (10) 
banking days from the date of receipt of the following information to my email address below.
1)your Company Name and address, 
2) confidential tel and fax numbers.
The above information will enable us write letters of claim and job description respectively. 
Moreso, we will use your name or company's name to apply for payments and re-award the contract in 
your name or company's name.  We are looking forward to doing business with you and solicit your 
confidentiality in this transaction. I will bring you into the complete picture of this lucrative 
project when I have heard from you.
Yours Faithfully,

Thank you, 
Alhaji Musa Yakubu.
