Good day,


I am compelled to write to you about this urgent business. After due consideration, I have no doubt that you will find this business proposal interesting, as you and I stand to benefit enormously, and it will foster a long lasting business relationship in the nearest future. I was the secretary of the Contract Award Committee of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) between 1999-2002. I retired honorably from the civil service, I was not find wanting in all my days in office. During my tenure, as the Secretary of the Contract Award Committee of GNPC, I awarded a contract to a foreign company. The contract sum was deliberately over-invoiced (inflated) by me and the committee to the amount of US$17,450,000M (Seventeen Million Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars Only). The actual contract sum quoted by the foreign company was US$50M, but I had to add US$17,450,000M, therefore increasing the overall contract sum to US$67,450,000M. This is with the knowledge of the foreign company owner Mr. Alain Vaillancourt. I submitted the foreign companyâs quotation/bid to the Federal Executive Council, and the contract sum of US$67,450,000M was approved. The foreign company has since completed the contract and their actually contract sum of US$50M duly paid to them, therefore leaving for me the over-invoiced sum of US$17,450,000.00M, as in the contractual agreement I had with the foreign company. Because of the accrual nature of the US$17,450,000.00M, and in an agreement between the Federal Government and the World Bank officials, this new government has approved and ordered the immediate transfer of the US$17,450,000.00M to a foreign beneficiary. It is only me that has the documents that can effect the transfer of the US$17,450,000.00M to a foreign account. Now that I am retired, and I know that the US$17,450,000.00M has no foreign beneficiary, and the owner of the company that executed the contract initially is dead and his company folded up, I want us to use this opportunity of this agreement between the Federal Government and the World Bank to seek for your assistance to transfer the US$17,450,000.00M to your designated account. You are to stand as the beneficiary of the money. I will get the relevant documents in your favor from the various government agencies indicating that you actually executed contract here as a sub-contractor for which you are making claim for the transfer of US$17,450,000.00M into your account. For been my partner/beneficiary the US$17,450,000.00M, the money will be shared in the following proportion:
50% will be your share, 50% will be for me,
Please send to me as a matter of urgency the following:
Bank Name,
Bank Address,
Bank Account,
Name Of Beneficiary,
Bank phone, fax, and telex.

It is pertinent to inform you that I have made concrete arrangement to transfer this US$17,450,000.00M into your account. This transaction is 100% risk free. Your area of business/specialization does not matter, once you have account information, we shall work out everything for you to receive the money in your account.
I am waiting for your quick response.
