Dear Friend,


I greet you most respectfully.

First,I am obliged to solicit for your assistance,almost beg for my existence,for not having the 
means to transfer and secure this funds tralked about here.I know this is a bit of an unusual 
reason to e-mail you but I need your help.I am assuring you that my contacting you as a private 
person is without any intention to violate your integrity; but solely due to the nature of this 
business as a special deal.Permit me to say also that I got your contact in confidence through the 
email database list purchased by my firm for resourseful individual based in overseas.

I am Alhaji Gamso Jimeta,the special assistant to the secretary of the
petroleum trust development fund-(PTDF)based here in the Independent Republic of Nigeria.

Sometime ago, to be precise by mid-last year,contracts were awarded to a conglomerate of 
multinational and indigenous companies by my committee on behalf of PDTF. In the general running of 
things, this contracts payments was over-invoiced to the tune of USD15.6M in total.This was done 
deliberately in a deal by members of my committee who we were assigned to share an office that also 
afforded a measure of privacy to get this deal arranged.We want to benefit from the project so that 
we will not retire to a life of penury after putting in many years in the civil service and where 
offoicially we have been working as gaggle of struggling individuals without any adoption programme 
for workers from our government so far; now and in the foreground ahead.

Right off the bat,we now desire to transfer the money,which is presently lying in a suspense 
account of PDTF at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) into an overseas account which we expect you 
to provide for a commission.And fundamentally,however,we want this money to be transferred to the 
foreign account which you are going to provide bearing in mind that our civil service code of 
conduct laws forbids us as civil servants from owning foreign company or running foreign 
account.Though all expenses regarding the account opening if not already in existence shall be 
borne by you and reimbursable as already stated above on conclusion of business.

And for the present,at least,we have agreed that the following funds will be shared thus after it 
has been paid into your account;

a) 20% of the money will go to you for acting as the beneficiary of the fund.
b) 10% will be set aside as an abstract projection for reimbursement to both parties for incidental 
expenses that may be incurred in the course of the transaction.
c) 70% to us the government officials (which we wish to commence a joint business in conjunction 
with you when we come for sharing).

For this matter, I would require;

a) Name and address of Company/ Beneficiary.
b)Your personal Telephone and Fax numbers .

The above informations would be used to make formal application;as a matter of procedure to the 
government remittance institution for the release of this funds and onward transfer to your bank 
nominated account. It does not matter whether or not you or your company does contract projects of 
the nature described here.The assumption is that you won a major contract and subcontracted it out 
to other companies.After all and more often than not,it is a known fact globally that big trading 
companies or individuals of unrelated field win major contacts and subcontracts to more specialized 
firms for execution of such contracts.This known principle in contract business is the cardinal 
element of support on which we rest our backs here to pursue the actualization of this mutually 
beneficial transaction without any hassles.

More importantly,we have strong and reliable connections and contacts at the Central Bank of 
Nigeria (CBN) and the Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no doubts at all that this money will 
be released and transferred if we get the necessary foreign partners to assist us in this deal. 
Therefore,when the business is successfully concluded we shall through the same connections 
withdraw all documents used in the execution of this deal from all the concerned government 
ministries for 100% security.

By the by; and out of an abundance of caution,I will be counting on your discretion to keep this 
matter close to your chest alone.This is to enable us achieve our targets.I do not mean to enforce 
attitude from you but our present sedentary positions of still working in the civil service demands 
that we must remain sticklers for laid down  etiquettes/law of the civil service which prohibits us 
from engaging in business of this nature.I crave your indulgence here on this issue of secrecy so 
that we do not incite things to riot that will in turn cause a leak to our career.

On all sides,and should you think we can have an agreeable and productive time together with real 
interest on the subject line above,kindly send me a mail through my confidential email 
address--( so that I can brief you further with the blue print details of the 
master plan to ensure a successful transfer of this fund to your account to our collective benefit.

I wait in anticipation of your co-operation to assisting me in this responsibility and even as I do 
not seek to buy my way into the alcove of your mind irrespective of the fact that you are already 
on a secured location (overseas) and maybe also in a good position to help me.

I will greatly appreciate your timely response back to me.I look forward to it.

Alhaji Gamso Jimeta.
