Dear partner, May i confide in you? If yes, please i do have reason for both of us to enshrine total trust and confidence in my quest for you to be my foreign benefactor. Honestly I want you to keep a part payment of my 10% contract commission bill from a contractor whose 100% claims had been paid accordingly remaining my 10% which the firm agreed to compensate me with; for shortlisting and approving their contract bidding. The money is just my gratification. But Can i trust you to receive and keep this money for me? Here in my country, civil servants are precluded from operating foreign account which implies that this my 10% must be paid to a trusted and faithful partner overseas. I will give you a reasonable compensation as your share if you will not betray me. Then i can tell you what to do fast. Please treat as most urgent and confidential. I wait your kind opinion on this. This is free and legitimate but unofficially my personal gratification. Yours sincerely, HARUNA BUHARI
