Sir, I have worked for 28years with nothing to show for it. The salaries paid to me could hardly take care of my family expenses not to talk of savings. As president Yar'Adua has compulsorily retired me, I really want something to fall back on. This is why I am contacting you. My name is Mr. Stanley Lawson; I am an accountant and newly-retired Executive Director of Finance and Accounts with the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). There is an outstanding fund amounting to Forty-Five Million United States Dollars (US$45,000,000.00) which I will like to move out of here to your bank account or any other bank account you will nominate. This fund emanated from over-inflation of contract sum, duly awarded to a foreign firm three (3) years ago, which has been executed and the contractor duly paid. Being the appointed Chairman of the NNPC Contract Award Committee, I intentionally did this over-inflation to take care of myself on retirement. All details and modalities for easy claim and transfer of this fund to you is with me which I will give to you upon your response to this mail. Further details on my replacement and retirement will be found in the following (2) web links: All I need from you is trust and confidentiality since we have neither seen nor known each other before.Indicate your interest and willingness by sending me: (1) Your (Full) Mailing Address, (2) Your Direct Telephone Number, (3) A company name which you would like me to use in the process of this payment (If Any) otherwise, your name will be used and registered here as your business name. I will like the ratio for sharing of this fund to be negotiated between you and I upon your indication of interest and willingness. However, if this confidential request is not acceptable by you, please do not betray me because my future and that of my family depends on it. Thanking you in advance.
