DEAR FRIEND, I am the financial controller of Repsol Petroleum Company in Madrid, Spain. I and my colleagues are in charge of offshore remittance in this Corporation (Repsol Petroleum). We are seeking your assistance to transfer the sum of Thirty Five Million (US$35,000,000.00) to your account for further private investment. This amount accrued from an over-invoiced contract amount for the construction of an Oil Refinery Sub- stations in 2013 to expatriate companies. The contract was originally valued for One Hundred and Twenty Seven Million United States Dollar US$127,000,000.00) but we manipulated the figure to read one Hundred and Sixty Two Million United States Dollars($162,000,000.00). We want to transfer the extra $35,000,000.00 to your bank account. This contract has been completely executed and the original contractors have been paid all their contract bills less this $35,000,000.00 through Banco Santander SA in Madrid Spain. We shall forward your name to the Bank for the payment of the balance US$35Million. Be rest assured that all modalities are set for smooth execution of this viable transaction. For your assistance, we have agreed to remunerate you with 40% because it is impossible for us to claim the amount here in Spain without foreign collaboration. 3% has been mapped out for any miscellaneous expenses incurred by either party during this business, and 57% for my colleagues and myself. This explains exactly why we will make a concrete agreement between you and us, should you be willing to assist in this deal. All modalities to effect the payment and subsequent transfer of this money have been worked out. This transaction is 100% risk free but requires 100 percent confidentiality. You must do this transaction alone! This is a golden opportunity which you must not afford to miss. We choose you for this transaction because we believe that good friends can be discovered and businesses such as this cannot be realized without trust. You can be rest assured that absolute security is guaranteed, and realistic success is 100% certain. I await your urgent response.
