Dear Friend,
After due deliberation with my colleagues, I decided to forward this
proposal. We want a reliable person who could assist us to transfer the
sum of One Million-Seven Hundred United States Dollars(US$1,700,000.00)
into his account.This fund resulted from an over-invoced bill from contract
awarded by us under the budget allocation to my ministry and the bill was
approved for payment by the concerned ministries. The contract has been
executed, commissioned and the contractor was paid the actual cost of the contract,we are left with the balance of US$1,700,000.00 as part of the over-invoiced amount, which we have deliberately over estimated, for our own, I am contacting you to be our custodian for this fund.
1. 20% for you (Account Owner)
2. 70% for us
3. 10% for Tax, as may required by our Government and yours.
As you may want to know and to make you less curious,I got your address
from adverts, in business directory that protrayed your establishment in
good light. I am the Secretary of the Contract Awarding Committee (CAC)of
the Société Ivoirienne de Raffinérie(S.I.R)Cote D'Ivoire. This transaction is very much free from all sorts of RISK and TROUBLE from my Government.
We have been exercising patience for this opportunity for so long and to
most of us this is a life time opportunity we cannot affford to miss. To get
this fund paid into your account, we have to present a Payment Invoice from
a foreign establishment like yours. With this invoice, we will seek approval
to transfer the fund within 14 banking days through the APEX BANK to your
designatd Bank Account.
I and one of my colleagues involved in this deal will come to your country
to arrange for our share upon the confirmation from you that the money has
been credited into your nominated Bank Account. Consequently upon your acceptance of my proposal,kindly confirm your interest by revert mail to this
email address;
It will surprise you why we choose you and trusted you for this transaction. Yes, we believe that good friends can be discovered and business like this cannot be realized without trust. This is why we have decided to trust you for this transaction. we are looking forward to doing this transaction with you.
Be further informed that everyone's interest and security had been considered before you were contacted. So be rest assured and feel free to go into this transaction with us. But let honesty be our watch word throughout this transaction and your prompt reply will be highly appreciated.
Best regards,
Mark Joshua Johnson
