Hello And Good day, It is my pleasure to write and inform you of a transaction involving the transfer of Eighty Six Million United State dollars ($86,000.000.00) only into a foreign account for safe-keeping pending my arrival with my colleagues for the sharing with you as the account owner into which the money is remitted. I am the Company Secretary and Legal Adviser of Accounts/Finance at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), and this money originated from over-invoiced contract executed for the corporation some years back. A foreign firm has long completed this contract and the contractor duly paid. I now seek if you would permit the surplus to be remitted into your account. As a matter of fact, we are top government officials and we cannot come out openly to claim this amount. This is why we are looking for a competent and honest company or individual abroad whose documents would be tendered by us here in Nigeria as one of the sub-contractors that executed the original project. However, I would wish to receive your personal assurance that you would not sit on the money when it goes into your account. More importantly, you keep confidential this transaction, in order not to tarnish the confidence reposed in the officials involved in this transaction. To affect this transfer before request the following: YOU’RE BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER/BANK ADDRESS. WHERE THE MONEY WOULD BE TRANSFERRED INTO AND YOUR PRIVATE FAX AND TELEPHONE NUMBERS FOR QUICK COMMUNICATION. You should not fear any risk because we have concluded arrangements to safe-guide you in the transaction. This business is 100% risk free. Hence, it requires high level of confidence and secrecy. Meanwhile this is the breakdown of the sharing modalities: (A). 10% WILL BE USED TO SETTLE TRANSFER CHARGES AND LEGAL PROTOCOLS. (B). 20% IS FOR USING YOUR ACCOUNT. (C). 70% FOR US THE ORIGINATORS. Be informed that on completion of this business I will use part of my money to invest in your country under your care. Please note that the transfer operation will take seven to fourteen working days to be completed. For more about me, visit our official website of my corporation, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC): http://www.nnpcgroup.com/corporate-profile/nnpc-management You will find information’s about me which is self explanatory. Yours faithfully, Yinka Omoregbe Company Secretary Legal Adviser N.B YOU MAY SEE/READ SOME WARNING ABOUT SCAM MAIL THAT IS BEEN SPREAD ON THE INTERNATE ETC, WE HAVE TWO REASONS FOR THIS. ONE IS TO MAKE PEOPLE TO BE AWARE OF SCAM AND TWO IS TO SCARE PEOPLE FROM ANSWERING MAIL OF TRANSFER OF FUND OUT OF NIGERIA BECAUSE THE COUNTRY HAS LOST MUCH FUND TO FOREIGNERS AND OFFICIALS HERE.
