I am the Chief Financial Officer of, Falkland oil and Gas marketing company, and by the virtue, as the Chief Financial Officer. I got your contact address from an associate working with the London export promotional council and decided to propose this business DEAL. I am seeking your assistance in remittance of, Ђ30,800,000, 00 Euro,(Thirty million eight hundred thousand Euro ) to your account for private investment purpose, hence my request for your assistance.
The fund to be transferred into your account accrued from an over-invoiced contract amount awarded for servicing of our depot and valves for storage of product all over our branches here in London. The contract which was originally valued for, Ђ254, 800, 000,00. Euro , was manipulated to read, Ђ284,800, 000, 00.Euro, the extra, Ђ30, 800, 000, 00. Euro, is what i want to transfer to your account, the contractors has been paid all their contract bills remaining this Ђ30,800, 000, 00.Euro. floating.
I have resolved that you take 30% of the total amount for your assistance in helping me to claim the remaining balance of Ђ30,800,000.00 Euro because it is impossible for me to claim the over invoiced amount here in London without your assistance. In addition 10% has been mapped out for any miscellaneous expenses incurred by me and you during this business.
All modalities to effect the payment and subsequent transfer of this money has been worked out, so this transaction is 100% risk free, though you are required to treat with strictest confidence ,on your acceptance send to me your confidential mobile phone for speedy correspondence.
I am looking forward to doing business with you. Your prompt reply will be highly appreciated.
Yours Faithfully,
