Hello my dear,

Before I introduce myself, I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail and I urge you 
to treat it serious. I am a Director in Procurement Department with Petroleum Ministry here
in U. A. E.  I obtained your email while searching for a reliable person, who could assist me in 
receiving transfer of a supposed contract awarded funds.  This fund came as a result of over 
estimated contract awarded sums executed by foreign contractors in the Petroleum Ministry. The 
concerned Ministry has approved these over invoiced funds for payment. The contracts which the
over invoiced sums was created from has been executed and commissioned. What I am about to receive 
now, is the over estimated funds which was added during the process of obtaining the contracts for 
my own interest.  This is a normal deal that goes in my Ministry by top officials.

On my part, all modalities have been worked out in ensuring a smooth conclusion of the contract 
payment to your bank account within the next few days.  My department approves payments to
contractors, and I happen to head the department.  All I want from you is to receive these funds on 
my behalf as a Sub-Let Company, because as Government Official I cannot collect the funds directly 
from my Ministry, neither I am allowed by Law to operate/ run foreign bank accounts. If you are 
trustworthy and can assist me in receiving the fund, do not hesitate to respond back to me 

Please note that there is no risk involved in receiving the over estimated contract funds in your 
account.  I want you to state in percentage what you shall have for participating in using your
bank account to secure the funds.  As soon as you indicate your interest, further details and the 
amount involved shall be given to you once I receive response from you.  I hope I can trust you
to treat this proposal with utmost confidentiality.

Looking forward to hearing from you soonest.

Best regards,

Engineer Abdul Ahmed.
