Dear Sir,

I know this will come to you as a surprise but never mind, I got your 
contact in my search for a reputable and trust worthy person/Company, 
who can stand confidently with me in this successful business 
arrangement. Before I proceed, I will like to introduce my humble self 
to you.
I am, the Auditor General of a Government Accredited Oil Company here 
in Nigeria. Certainly, the prompting of this letter to you is anchored 
on my strong desire to solicit your sincere understanding and co-
operation in this transaction that would certainly boost the financial 
stand of both parties involved when completed. As a matter of fact, We 
want to transfer to overseas (US$ 152,000.000.00 USD) One hundred and 
Fifty two million United States Dollars) from the Oil company's 
operating Bank 
account here in Africa, I want you to quietly look for a reliable and 
honest person who will be capable and fit to provide either an 
bank account or to set up a new Bank A/C immediately to receive this 
money, even an empty account can serve to receive this money, as long 
as youwill remain honest to me till the end of this important 
transaction, trusting in you and believing in God that you will never 
let me down either now or in the near future.
In all honesty, during the course of our auditing I discovered a 
floating fund of the above mentioned amount in account opened with the 
bank in 1990 and since then, nobody has operated on this account 
after going through some old files in the records I discovered that 
money in the account was mapped out for the refurbishment of the Oil 
Company's Machineries. Meanwhile, Mr. Magnus Leon, the President of 
Oil Company 
was the only signatory to the account, but unfortunately he died after 
a brief illness in 1993. And no other person knows about this account 
or any thing concerning it, and the account has no other beneficiary. 
And my investigation proved to me that Mr. Magnus Leon, until his 
had wanted to siphoned that money into his personal account in New 
hence he did not disclose the operating devises of the account to the 
Board of Trustees.
I am only contacting you in this regard, based on the fact that you 
a foreigner because, this money can only be approved to any foreigner 
who can present all documents that will prove that he/she is the Next 
of Kin/Beneficiary to the account base on the fact that Mr. Magnus 
the owner of this account is a foreigner, and the money can only be 
approved into a foreign bank account. 
Therefore, if you are capable of handling this transaction with me, 
lets make the necessary arrangement for the hitch-free transfer of 
money to any safe bank account that you may nominate, on a share 
percentage bases.We will start the first transfer with Fifty Two 
Million USD [$52,000.000] upon the successful actualization of the 
first transfer, without any disappointment from your side; we shall re-
apply for the 
payment of the remaining amount, to your account. However, we shall 
sign a binding agreement, to bind us together as partners in this 
I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let 
me down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I 
am contacting for this business, so please reply urgently and indicate 
your sincere interest, so that I can inform you on the modalities 
already mapped out for the hitch-free transfer of the money out of 
Africa here. 
I will require your direct phone and fax number for easy contacting 
I need your full co-operation to make this work adequately. Upon your 
positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and 
Willing to meet up with the instructions of the top bank official that 
is deeply involved with me in this business, I shall commence actions 
immediately to process the payment of the money in your favor as the 
beneficiary.With my influence and the position of the bank official we 
can transfer this money to any reliable foreign bank account, which 
can provide.
I am looking forward in anticipation to hearing from you soon as 
Yours truly,
