Dear Friend,

My name is George Limo. It is my pleasure to write this mail basically to seek your consent on transaction which involves transfer of an over-invoiced sum of money from my ministry to your bank account. The amount involved is S$25million.

I am a member of the Contract Award Committee (CAC) in my ministry Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). The amount was intentionally over-invoiced for our benefit. We have worked carefully to secure the approval of the fund since the original contract value has been paid on completion of the contract in 2006. Then the remaining balance of US$25million is what I intend to transfer privately to you using your bank account details.

The civil service code of conduct does not allow any serving officer to operate a foreign bank account. This is a serious barrier to transfer the fund to an offshore account hence it is wisely thought to make this contact to you.

The modalities of sharing and safety of the fund in your bank account will be discussed as soon as you indicate your willingness to work with me.

Contact me only through the email address below to indicate your interest and readiness to be my partner. Reply via this email:
