Attention: Re: Request for Safe Account Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics although, I wish to use this medium to get in touch with you first because it\'s fastest means. I wish to seek your support and cooperation to transfer for safe keeping, the sum of US$16.5Million into your bank account. I am the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of the Liquefied Natural Gas Company (LNG)and this fund has been carefully mapped out after scrutinizing all records and accounts of contracts awarded from year 2006 to date. I used my position to facilitate the approval of the funds for immediate payment under contract number: LNG/FGN/FMF/CB/C988/06. However, due to my position as a civil servant and the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of the firm, it is illegal for me to operate foreign bank accounts in my name or by proxy because of the our country¢s law. Therefore, I need you as a foreigner to be my partner, so that I can process the contract documents in your name as the beneficiary of the contract and the funds and have it transferred via Key Tested Telex (K.T.T) into your bank account for safekeeping. If you accept this offer and join forces with me to get the fund transferred into your account, 35% of the funds shall be your share, while the remaining 60% will be for me. The remaining 5% shall be used to reimburse any expenses that may be incurred by any of us during the cause of processing the funds for transfer into your bank account. I will explain more on this when you reply so that we can have good understanding as we begin this relationship that will benefit us financially for the future. Please signify your interest to be part of the transaction by sending the following information to me for the purpose of effecting the necessary changes in the transaction documents to your name as the beneficiary: (A). YOUR FULL NAMES AND CONTACT ADDRESS. (B). YOUR TELEPHONE/FAX NUMBER. (C). YOUR OCUPATION. (D). AGE. I await your prompt reply and God bless you. Yours truly, Remi Bankole ___________________________________________________________________________________________ NOTE: If however, you are not disposed to assist, kindly delete/destroy this email in view of the confidentiality of the proposed transaction and interest of personalities involved.
