Your very urgent attention
After a serious thought, I decided to reach you directly and personally because I do not have
anything against you, but your so called Nigeria partners and confidant. I am the director of
wire transfer/telex department of the central bank of Nigeria, some time in the past, your
Nigeria partners and confidant in this office approached me through a friend of mine who works with one of the ministries here and requested that I assist them conclude a money transfer deal.
They gave me your name and particulars and told me to put them into our computing system in the lab so that it will appear as if you are one of the genuine contractors that have been cleared for payment. According to them, they wanted to use this strategy to transfer a huge amount of us dollars which they accumulated through inflated contract awards and the money has been floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) since the original contractors has been paid. So they wanted to use your account to transfer the surplus out of Nigeria.
We agreed that once I do this, they would give me US$100,000.00 and give me another
US$100,000.00 when I release the fund to you. When they saw that I have done that and your name has been approved among the list of those to be paid, instead of giving me the agreed deposit of US$100,000.00, they started avoiding me and resorted to threats. I immediately deleted the final approval code of the fund, which is only known to me because of my position and release other contractors fund without yours. They became angry the more. When they saw that their threat did not work, they started bribing other officials to get another approval for the money to you but to no avail.
Approvals are free, is it not funny that a contractor is being asked to pay for approval while
his millions is here with us? I am 100% responsible for the delay and obstructions because of
their breach of contract. If you doubt what I have just told you, pay any amount of money they will ask you to pay now, after a short time, they will come up with another reason for you to pay again and it goes on and on,they are simply wicked and selfish.
Now if you want us to work together, these are my conditions.
I) I will have 30% of the money because it is only the two of us left for now.
I1) you will assist my son to open an account in your country or any other place of my choice
where I will pay in my own share.
I11) As you have seen, it will be useless and mere waste of money if you continue with any
other person, so we will conclude the transaction with utmost secrecy with the above telephone/ e-mail: email@example.com. If these conditions are acceptable to you, contact me as soon as possible to let us finalize so that I will send to you our official kit wire transfer form to complete and I will release the money to your account.
But if you are not interested, I advice you to forget the fund as it will be transferred into
our consolidated national reserve.
