Treasury Controller
Ministry of Finance Nigeria
this is my priavte email adderss plz reply here



I am the Treasury Controller, Ministry of Finance Nigeria  West Africa.

The Minister has mandated me to transfer the sum of US$88 million recovered from an over-invoiced 
contracts involving the Ministry of Nigeria (CBN) into several private account in overseas. A total 
sum of
US$73,700,000.00 has been transferred before the emergence of this present Administration, leaving 
balance of US$14,300,000.00.

I have made proper arrangement/documentation to transfer the balance which is retained in a coded 
account of the (C.B.N) with the Central Bank of Nigeria. We are soliciting that you help us to 
receive the
fund in trust. We cannot complete this transaction smoothly without the participation of a foreign 
partner who would provide an account where the funds could be lodged. Since it is a contract 
payment, the funds must be remitted to a foreign account as a contractor with (CBN). The remittance 
of the funds requires little documentation.
There is no risk involved in this transaction since the minister and I have covered this 
transaction with adequate contract and external credit documents from the beginning.

What we require from you by e-mail or phone are viz: {i} Acceptance letter of this offer
{ii} Your company name or complete personal name and confidential telephone and fax numbers {iii} 
Convincing Honesty, Trust worthiness and Willingness to abide by the requirements of this proposal 
paramount of which is CONFIDENTIALITY.

We have agreed that you will retain 20% of the entire US$14,300,000.00 for your effort in this 
transaction, 70% for us  here in Nigeria and the remaining 10% will be used for defrayal of 
incidental cost in the
course of this transfer.

Please I prefer you reply urgently by  e-mail as we expect that the transaction will not take more 
than ten working days. And please note that this transaction must be top Confidential.  So I will 
appreciate you reply me through my private e-mail address
In your reply do remember to include your full name and your direct Telephone/Fax number so we can 
discus more elaborately.

Best regard.
