I write to inform you of my desire to acquire estates or landed properties in
your country on behalf of the Director of Contracts and Finance Allocation of
the Federal Ministry of works and Housing here in my country. Considering his
very strategic and influential position, he would want the transaction to be as
strictly confidential as possible. He further requires his identity to remain
undisclosed at least for now, pending when the transaction has been completed.
He desire to have an agent overseas. I have therefore been directed to inquire if
you would agree to act as our overseas agent in order to actualize this
transaction. The deal in brief is that the funds with which to carry out our
proposed investments in your country is presently in a coded/ secured account
with the Apex Bank and we need your assistance to transfer the funds to your
country or any safe account outside your country in a convenient bank account
that will be provided by you before the transfer is done!

The contract sum of which is US$30.5 Million of which your share
shall be 30% if you're sincere and truthful with us. We are willing to pay you 30%
if you agree to be our overseas agent. Your area of specialization
does not matter in this transaction. All that is required of you is a safe
account and your willingness to assist us acquire real estates in your country.
As soon as payment is effected and the amount mentioned above is successfully
transferred into your account, we intend to use our own share in acquiring some
estates in any location. For this too, you shall serve as our agent . It might interest
you to note that last year, a similar transaction was carried out with one MR.
CHIENCHEN YU of Taiwan, but after securing the payment approvals, and payment
effected, MR.CHIENCHEN YU changed his numbers and addresses, and was no where to
be found on our getting to Taiwan. That was how we lost US$7.5 Million. So this
time around, I will be with you before the remittance is made into your provided
account to avoid a re-occurrence and allow trust to play a very minimal role
until performance is achieved.
You are requested to communicate your acceptance or otherwise of this proposal,
through my private e-mail account as it appears, after which we shall discuss in
details the modalities for seeing this transaction through. If however, you are
not disposed to assist, kindly delete/destroy this letter in view of the
confidentiality of the proposed transaction and interest of personalities
involved. Below are the required information you need to fill before any
transactions would begin.
