Kingsley Kaigama,

   Letter of Introduction and Request for assistance.
My name is Dr. Kingsley Kaigama  (i have taking utmost
time and bravery to build up confidence to  write you this
very confidential mail, knowing if you decide not to help
me it could mean losing my job. ). I am  the Chairman
National Council on Privation, The NCP was established with
the Bureau of Public Enterprise (BPE) to make the Nigerian
economic environment conducive and favourable for foreign
investors. The NCP have a responsibility to do everything
within its power to attract foreign investor.
Having been a member of this council and also a member of
board of director for the Bureau of Public enterprise for
over three years now, I was recently appointed by the
President and approved by the national Assembly to be a
member of the Contract Review Committee: this committee
was set up for the primary purpose of reviewing past
contract awarded to foreign firms, organisation,
associations and enterprises including the independent
contractors and business consultants. It is also our
responsibility to award new major investment oriented
contract to foreign firms or business organisation who are
willing to do business in Nigeria- the third largest
producer of crude oil in the world, and having also vast
potential in many other industries like maritime, energy,
agriculture and steel. We are also the largest black
country in the world, this giving us a rare quality of
being one of largest market in the world for finished or
semi-finished product (goods and services).
I have taken time to write you this mail because I need your help 
in a business transaction as well as for investment 
in the agro-allied industry or any other industry you may advise in 
your country . I will ,therefore,without delay give you a complete 
insight of  the transaction that I need your urgent help.
In course of reviewing some past contract, in my capacity
as a member of the CONTRACT REVIEW COMMITTEE, I and some
of my colleague now discovered there were a lot of
mismanagement and corruption in the issuing of contract by
the previous ,corrupt, military administrations and We also
discovered the sum of forty-seven million five hundred
united states dollar ($47.5m) as over invoice contract and
this money has been lying in the issuing bank-the Central
Bank of Nigeria (CBN) the Country?s Apex Bank
waiting for payment to the beneficiary contractor; with
further investigation we found out that the money was
deliberately over invoiced by the past corrupt officials
and that the money (US$47.5m) was not associated or does
not belong to any firm or contractor, but that this was a
perfected plan by the past officials to keep this money
for their private use. This practise of over invoicing was
very rampant during the past administration of General
Sanni Abacha-our late past Head of State and his
predecessor Gen. AbdulSalami Abubakar and this was the way
they enriched themselves and their numerous sycophants.
I and my colleagues who discovered this money now 
decided against returning the money but to use the money
for investment purposes in your country, with you as our foreign and
international partner. Being civil servant we cannot be
seen to be involved in this transaction but we have
decided to seek your assistance to help us come forward as
the beneficiary contractor, so that we can immediately
approve the fund to be transferred into your account for
us all. We on our part as member of the committee will
recognise you as the contractor who has completed his
contract and awaiting payment by the Federal Government
and therefore forward your application for payment to the
Central Bank and Federal Ministry of Finance for the
immediate release of the contract sum into your account,
after officially recognising and approving you as the
beneficiary contractor we will now recommend you for
payment of the total contract sum of US$47.5m.
Having said this much I will also like to let you know
immediately that we are offering you 30% of the total
money, and we going to keeping 60% for ourselves, the
remaining 10% has been set aside for miscellaneous
expenses that might been incurred in the course of this
I also crave your indulgence to understand the reason we
decided to keep this money and use it for our personal
investment purposes. We are just trying to secure our
financial future and therefore the future of our children.
As civil servant we have served this Country for over
23years now, and we have nothing to show for it except
working for different government that have have persisted in the 
looting and plundering of our treasury without adequate arrangement 
for our retirement.
That is the reason we have taken this decision: we see
this as once in a life time opportunity giving to us by
God to change our financial destiny- that was very bleak
before this opportunity came along and we decided to not
to lose it. 
I hope you will give us your most reliable arm of
assistance in this transaction, and I assure you that
nobody will regret but rather we will only have reasons to
be happy and expand our horizon in life (both in business
and life in it?s totality. I know that you are
highly reliable and have the ability and capability
required to ensure the successful completion of this
transaction. I also trust and have full confidence in you
that you will in no way disappoint, even when the money is
your account and we arrive your country for our part of
the money.
At this point in time, I also wish to inform you that
because of our positions as civil servants and our long
years of service, and because we do not want to be
identified as corrupt officials, we are please asking you
to treat everything and anything concerning this deal as
totally confidential and very personal and close to your
chest- you must not mention this deal to anybody  until
the money is safely in your account for us all and we have
totally destroyed every documents that concerns this
transfer. I should also let you know that this whole
transaction will not exceed fourteen official bank working
days- therefore time is also of essence.
Please, I await your urgent reply immediately you get this
mail, giving me you telephone and fax numbers and account
number. I will like to finally assure you that we have
taking our time to be careful to ensure that this whole
transaction is hitch-free, that is why I
must reiterate the importance for all of us to keep this
transaction close to our chest and very confidential, in
short ,our guiding principle through-out the course of
this transaction should be CONFIDENTIALITY, TRUST and
Awaiting your urgent response.
Best regards,
Dr. Kingsley Kaigama.
