This mail may be a surprise to you because you did not give me the permission to do so and neither do you know me but before I tell you about myself I want you to please forgive me for sending this mail without your permission. I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the will of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly. I need an honest and trust worthy person like you to entrust this huge transfer project unto.
My name is Mr. Mike Anochie, The Branch Manager of a Financial Institution. I got your contact through a reliable source from the Nigerian Chamber of Commerce database. I am a Nigerian married with 3 kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$3,500,000.00, This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit last year (i.e. 2014 financial year). I have already submitted an annual report for that year to my head office in Abuja-Nigeria as I have watched with keen interest as they will never know of this excess. I have since, placed this amount of US$3,500,000.00 on an Escrow Coded account without a beneficiary (Anonymous) to avoid trace.
As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account on my behalf. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and 60% would be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer.
All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be transferred to your account.
If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response to me. This is why and only reason why I contacted you, I am willing to go into partnership investment with you owing to your wealth of experience, So please if you are interested to assist on this venture kindly contact me back for a brief discussion on how to proceed.
Mr. Mike Anochie
