Dear Sir/Madam,

It is with trust and confidence that I write to reveal this business proposal to you, I was 
assigned by two of my colleagues to seek for a foreign partner who will assist us in providing a 
convenient Bank account in a designated Bank overseas for the transfer of US$62,000,000.00 (Sixty 
two Million, United States Dollars only), pending our arrival in your country for utilization and 
disbursement of the fund with the owner of the account.

My name is ALHAJI YAKUBU AHMED, TENDERS BOARD F.M.P.M.R. I am the Chairman, Contract Tenders Board 
of the Federal Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Lagos, Nigeria.

On January 2004, our Ministry, The Federal Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, awarded a 
contract of US$800,000,000.00 (Eight Hundred Million United States Dollars only),CONTRACT NUMBER 
:042/FGN/FMPMR/PED/WR/PH/REF/O4 but my colleagues and I being members of the Contract award 
Committee over inflated the contract to the tune of US$862,000,000.00 (Eight Hundred and Sixty Two 
Million, United States Dollars only), with the intention of sharing the remaining balance of 
US$62,000.000.00 amongst ourselves.

The Contract has been successfully executed and the actual contractors have just been paid their 
US$ 800,000,000.00 in full, leaving a balance of US$62,000,000.00 which we now want to transfer out 
of the country in our favor, making it look as if the payment for the contract has been completed, 
since we as Government Officials are not permitted by Law to operate Foreign bank accounts and 
secondly, we cannot collect the money from the source because the contract was undertaken by a 
foreign firm.

My colleagues and I have agreed that if you can act as the beneficiary of this fund 
(US$62,000,000.00), we will transfer the money to any of your nominated Bank account and you will 
retain 30% of the total fund for the assistance rendered by you, while we retain 60% of the total 
fund, the balance of 10% will be set aside for the offsetting of all expenses that might be 
incurred by both parties during the fund transfer process.

We are requesting you to co-operate with us and provide a convenient account number in a designated 
bank where this fund can be safely transferred into since this is our only chance of making 
something for ourselves after many years of service, We intend to come over there on the completion 
of the fund transfer to secure our own share of the fund.

Please note that we have been careful worked out all the modalities for a smooth transfer of the 
fund to your chosen designated Bank account before contacting you, We would therefore not want you 
to expose this proposal to anybody for the purpose of security and its confidential nature, We also 
believe you will not sit on our money when it is eventually transferred into your account, as you 
would get 30% of the fund.

Please be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free, and the nature of your business has 
nothing to do with it.

If this proposal is accepted by you, please indicate your interest by contacting us through my 
contact below by sending us your Account details in a designated bank, address of your bank, your 
full IDENTIFICATION, your private Telephone, Fax and mobile numbers for easy contact.

On your acceptance, more details about this transaction will be given to you.

Best regards.
