Hello and Good day to you,

I am Mr. Ernest C. Ebi , The Deputy Governor Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). I
write to you particularly to solicit your assistance in an Urgent and Very
Confidential fund transfer. In my capacity as the Deputy Governor of the
Central Bank of Nigeria, I receive gratifications from various foreign
contractors, whose company executed contracts for the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation NNPC and were paid through my office.

Now, there is an accumulated sum of gratifications to the tune of
US$12.3Million, which I intend to transfer abroad for safe-keep and subsequent
investment. However, plans have been made for the funds to be transferred via
Telegraphic Wire Transfer into any safe Bank account you will provide. I need
your assistance basically because the ethics of our civil service code does not
permit me to own or operate foreign bank coordinates while still in active

However, you can be rest assured that I will use my position as the Deputy
Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria to procure every necessary document from the
relevant authorities here to back up the fund transfer in your name as its
legitimate beneficiary. Once the money is successfully transferred into your
account, I will come over to meet with you so we can discuss my investment

If you are willing and able to handle this transaction with me, please get back
to me immediately with the following information to enhance smooth transfer,
and also let me know what percentage of the total sum would you like to take
after tax?

1. Your full names and current address
2. Your personal identification such as, international passport or driver's
license (scanned copy)
3. Your direct telephone and fax numbers
4. A safe Bank account details, where you want the money to be transferred into.

I look forward to your urgent and favorable response and cooperation.

Best Regards,

Mr. Ernest C. Ebi
