Dear Sir/Madam, I am Samuel Deko, of the support office, Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Nigeria. We are aware every Nigerian is generally perceived as a potential fraudster, thus note the below proposal is not for skeptics. If you harbour doubts about it's seriousness do not bother to respond. A loan was acquired by the Federal Government of Nigeria, from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), towards the cost of Community Based Natural Resource Management Programme (CBNRMP). Part proceeds of this loan have been applied to the purpose for which it was procured, leaving a greater portion in government coffers. My associates and I require the assistance of a foreigner in diverting the remainder proceeds into our direct possession. Our need for a foreigner stems from our huge success at diverting funds of such nature in the past. This process was introduced by the financial body, situated in Europe, which handles all our transactions of this nature, to protect we public servants and office holders and renders the funds untraceable. With respect the funds pertaining to this transaction, all funding comprising costs/expenditure and gains/profits, we propose a sharing ratio of 90% to 10%, with 90% to my associates and I, and 10% to yourself. However note this is open to negotiation. For heightened security, this transactions worth remains undisclosed for now, however it is to the tune of tens of millions of United States dollars. All necessary paperwork backing, substantiating and protecting the funds from scrutiny and investigations on grounds of terrorist financing and money laundering are in possession of the financial body in Europe, and upon your arrival at their office, would be entrusted to you along with the funds on our behalf. Upon expression of interest, you shall be furnished details of the aforestated loan for verification from IFAD. Regards Samuel Deko Cell: +234 706 464 5819
