CHAIRMAN TENDER BOARDOF NIGERIA NATIONALPETROLEUMCORPORATION (N.N.P.C)Email ( email@example.com)Dear, FriendI guess this letter may come to you as a surprise since I had no previous correspondence with you. I am the chairman tender board of Nigeria national petroleum corporation (NNPC).I got your contact in the course of my search for a reliable person with whom to handle a very confidential transaction involving the transfer of fund valued fifty million seven hundred thousand united states dollars ($50.7m) to a safe foreign account. The above fund in question is not connected with arms, drugs or money laundering. It is the product of over invoice on contract awarded in 2005 by NNPC, to a foreign company for the turn around maintainers of Nigeria oil refineries in Kaduna state, delta state, and Lagos state of Nigeria. thecontract has long been executed and payment of the actual contract amount made to the foreign contractor leaving the balance of $50.7m US dollars in a dormant account which my colleagues and I now want to transfer out of Nigeria into a reliable foreign account for our personal use.As civil servants, we are not allowed by the law to operate a foreign bank account.therfore it becomes necessary to look for a foreign company with the capability to act as the original beneficiary of the contract. my dear, it is a good thing that the president has endorsed the resolution passed by the senate that all foreign contractors owned by the federal government of Nigeria should be paid, we will seize this good opportunity to spurport you as one of the beneficiaries to be paid.If you are interested in this proposal kindly send to me your letter of acceptance along with your direct telephone and fax numbers, but if you cannot for any reason handle this transaction I should be grateful if you can introduce it to a reliable and trust worthy person in which in any case your interest will be properly taken care off. meanwhile, my colleagues and I have decided to share the money in the following ratio: 70% for my colleagues and I, then 20% for you the account owner and 10% for all local and international expenses that may arise in the course of this transaction. Further details about this transaction will be discussed in the subsequent correspondence.This transaction is strictly confidential but 100% risk free for both of us. Note also that the particular nature of your business is irrelevant to this transaction and this transaction is expected to be concluded within 14 bank working days since all local contacts and arrangements have been properly perfected for a smooth and successful conclusion of this transaction.please you are reduired to fill this and return to me also to enable us to be fast.Your Full Name...................Address..........................Age.....................................Occupation.....................Your Phone Number..............Country And State...............ID Card..............................Thanks You.REGARD,
