Greetings ,
                                                               Re: Confidential Business Assistance
I am a principal accountant to Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) appointed by the present Democratic Government Federal Republic of
Nigeria. I was empowered to verify and investigate contractual payments of the ministry made during the past in Nigeria.
During the course of this investigation I discovered US$16.5 Million floating in a suspense account of the ministry. Subsequently, my
investigation revealed that this amount originated from over inflated contract whose beneficiary has been dully paid for the completion of
contract agreement. Though I discovered more seventy two similar cases but was recovered to the government confers.
Consequently to my resolution to transfer this sum (US$16.5M) into a foreign account to enable us invest the money, I therefore seek for a
trustworthy individual or company whose bank account will retain this money. I got your contact from Nigeria chambers of commerce and industries
information technology institute. I resolved that you should own US$5,500,000.00 for your service and assistance while US$1,000,000.00
shall be used for taxable charges. The remaining amount shall be for my investment abroad in your country.
Hence, if this offer interests you, be very urgent to indicate your interest; through my email address. With my position and relevance to this
present government I have consolidated every modality to get this (US$16.5M) transfers within 10 working days without any risk.
All you need to do is to maintain strict confidential until the transfer period is concluded.
Best Regards.
