Dear Friend,

For your assistance please. I write to solicit for your assistance 

for this transaction believing that you will treat this with utmost  

confidence,and excuse me for the embarrassment this letter 

might cause you as we have not met or known each other before.

I am Engr. Benjamin Salako a project manager with the Federal 

Ministry of Works & Housing (FMW&H). I obtained your email from 

the internet, while searching for a reliable person, who could assist 

us in receiving cash gift from contractors awarded contracts

executed under the current budgetary allocation for NDDC.

These bills had been approved for payment by the concerned

ministry. The contracts had been executed and commissioned.

What we are about to receive now, is a promised cash gift

from the contractors whom we have helped during the process

of obtaining the contracts and in the processing of their

payments. On our part, all modalities had been worked

out in ensuring a smooth conclusion of the transfer to you

within the next twenty one days. All I want from you is your 

details to enable these foreign contractors forward the cash 

gift to you on our behalf, because as government officials we 

cannot collect these cash gift directly from them, neither are 

we allowed by law to operate/run a foreign accounts.

If you are trustworthy and can assist m! e in receiving these 

cash gift, I will like you to provide immediately to me, your 

full names, address, and telephone number.

Please note that there will be no financial obligation

required from you and this transaction is risk free.

For each cash you receive on our behalf, you will be

entitled to 10% of that sum. As soon as you indicate

your interest, further instructions will be passed on to

you on the procedure that we will follow in accomplishing

this deal.

Kindly reach me immediately via my confidential e-mail refurnishing me with your 

details as stated above. Looking forward to hearing from
