Dear Friend, URGENT AND STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.Reaching you is courtesy of my favourite international business directory, which vividly tells your position and capability to execute this business presently with me in my office.
I am an Accountant and the chairman of the tender committee which awards contract in the department of The FEDERAL AIRPORT AUTHORITY OF NIGERIA (F.A.A.N). We have USD$60,000,000,00 Million Dollars (SIXTY MILLION US DOLLARS ) only, which we want to transfer into your bank account. This funds originated from an Over-invoiced contract sum which was awarded to a foreign firm in 1999. I and my three (3)other colleagues in the tender Board purposely inflated the actual cost of the contract to the tune of USD$60,000,000,00 Million Dollars.
However, the original contractor has fully executed the contract, the project commissioned and the contractor paid his actual contract worth, leaving behind the over-invoiced sum. So, it is based on this that we now want you / your company to come forward to claim this sum on our behalf. We are Civil Servants, and we are not allowed to operate foreign account while still in office, so you are therefore to act as one who had executed a contract worth the sum of USD$60,000,000,00 Million Dollars for my Company and you now want your contract payment.
This money will be shared between you and we (Colleagues) over here in Nigeria.
We have agreed to share the funds as follows: (I). 35% of the total sum for you (The Account Owner).(II). 65% of the total sum for us (The officials involved).
We will be coming to meet you in your country immediately we conclude this transaction to share and to invest part of our shares of total sum into any viable business you may advise us in your country.
Please, let me know if you are interested in this business by replying urgently.
Full details of this business will be sent to you upon receipt of your reply. For the purpose of communication in this matter, please give us your telephone and fax numbers including your private home telephone numbers. Reply to me via this email addresses:( email@example.com )
