There is absolutely going to be a great doubt and distrust in your heart in respect of this email, coupled with the fact that, so many miscreants have taken possession of the Internet to facilitate their nefarious deeds, thereby making it extremely difficult for genuine and legitimate business class persons to get attention and recognition.

I am the managing director of the Assurance bank limited, where I am also a Director of Project Implementation. In recent past, a contract was awarded by the Nigerian Government to a foreign firm(Company name witheld) in which the cost was over-invoiced deliberately to favour us. Now, we want to get the funds out of the remittance department of the Assurance bank into your provided account within one week from now and a specific amount will be given to you for your assistance and efforts when this fund have been successfully remitted into your nominated bank account, the amount in question is witheld at this time.
Trust is definitely the most noble trait in the world, and I urge you to trust my sincerity and the word of a simple and humble person of faith, who in the name of love for her equals is willing to accomplish the task of doing business with a trusted and transparent person. It is up to you to decide whether this letter deserves your trust and confidentiality.
