Our Ref: FGN /SNT/STB Your Ref.                            

Dear Sir/Madam,

On the strength of the meeting held by this office with the
presidency on contract issues, I was mandated by the
president to scrutinize and investigate why your overdue
contract fund has not been paid, and as well mandated me to
instruct our paying arm for immediate release of your
contract funds once I certified it okay. During my
investigation on your file/claims as to know why it has been
difficult for you to receive this fund, I discovered that
your company is not the original firm that executed this
contract in question.

I discovered too that an Italian firm was the original
contractor, but details cannot be made available to you for
security reasons. Your firm through sensational
manipulations and extensive documentation eventually became
the beneficiary of the approved contract funds appearing in
our accounting records as outstanding debts which must be
paid to you. I am not suppose to contact you the manner I am
now because it is the ethics of my job, but the truth is
that nobody is a "SAINT" and nobody is above
"DIALOGUE", in view of this circumstance, I
decided to write you privately in order to reach an
understanding with you, and to offer candid solution on how
the approved fund can be paid out since it is you who
successfully fronted your company as the beneficiary of the 

said contract fund.

I am convinced that you collaborated with some powerful
syndicates inside our government to achieve this far.
Everybody in the government knows that it is impossible to
secure any foreign exchange from the Government vault for
any project or payment without the Presidency authorization.

I am sure by you have spent fortunes to no avail. It is
regrettable, but the fact is that I am prepared to help you
receive this fund base on your 

understanding and uprightness to do this deal with me. The
fact about the whole thing is that the documentation
procedure has not been completed but that is no problem for
the release of your funds, hence it has already been
approved for payment. I will give you the details once I
receive your reply.

However, considering my position and respect I want to deal
with you directly since I am the only person who detected
the "FRAUD" I want both of us to help each other
by entering into an agreement that 40% of the contract sum
will be paid into my account.

The only condition for this transaction to succeed is your
co-operation and to adhere to my instruction. I request that
you contact me immediately through my e-mail address or
telephone number +2347040673783 for more information.

Once I receive your correspondence today we will finalize
the issue of the release of the funds. You should stop
further communication with anybody as to avoid Spending your
money to a blackout direction.
