                                 REF:  URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL.

Most competent people are choosen for competent jobs and assignments, and with
that due respect have we also choosen to select you and contact you on this
very confidential matter. Our Nigerian Chamber of Commerce and industry offers
variety of names of notable people from your part of the Globe. That was where
I got your information from. Therefore, after due eliberation with my partners,
we decided to forward to you  this proposal. We believe that you would be in a
position to help us in our bid to transfer the sum of US$41.5M(Forty-0ne
million, five hundred thousand dollars only) into a foreign account. We shall
make it 100% legal as much possible as you would want.

We are members of the special committee for budget and planning of the Ministry
of Petroleum. This committee is principally concerned with contract appraisals
and approval of contracts in order of priorities as regards CAPITAL PROJECTS of
the Federal Government of Nigeria. With our positions, we have successfully
secured for ourselves the sum of Forty-one Million, Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars(US$41.5M). We are working with the present emocratically
elected Government in my country, and we are seeking the support of Foreign
Government to win the next election coming up, which the race has started. So
they have given directive to all
Federal Parastatals to settle all Foreign Contractors being owed for contract
that they have done. Therefore, our plan is to include your name as one of the
contractors being owed in our corporation.

What we need from you is to provide a safe Account into which the funds will be
transferred since Government Officials in my country are not allowed by our
laws to Operate Foreign Accounts. It has been agreed that you will be
compensated with US$8.3 Million of the remitted funds. US$31.125Million belongs
to us, while  US$2.075Million will be set aside to offset expenses and pay the
necessary taxes.

It may interest you to know that two years ago a similar transaction was
carried out with one Mr. Patrice Miller, the C.E.O of Crane International
Trading Corporation at number 135, East 57th street, 28th floor, New York
10022, with Telephone (212)308-7788 and Telex Number 6731689. After the
agreement between both of us in which he was to take 25% of the money as his
share, the money was duly transferred into his Account. We were disappointed on
our arrival
in New York as we were reliably informed that Mr. Patrice Miller was no longer
on that address while his Telephone and Telex Numbers have been reallocated to
somebody else. That was how we lost US$27.5M to Mr.Patrice Miller.

This time around we would not want you to be like that. We need a more reliable
and trustworthy person and a reputable Company to do this business with, hence
we contacted you. So if you can prove yourself to be trusted and interested in
this deal then we are prepared to do business with you. What we want from you
is the assurance that you will let us have our share when this amount of
US$41.5M is transferred into your account.

If this proposal satisfies you, please contact us, so we can advice you on the
modalities of the transaction. All modalities of this transfer, have been
worked out and once started will not take more than 7 Banking days with the
absolute support of all concerned. This transaction is 100% safe and risk free
now and after the transfer. Kindly treat this as

urgent and very confidential.

Best regards.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
