Dear Sir,
I'm aware that this unexpected mail will come to you as a surprise. I apologies for any Inconvenience, but please do bear with me for I am only seeking for your help. I apologize if I have infringed on your privacy.

I am a member of the newly inaugurated committee for the privatization of the refineries of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, in Nigeria. I got your address through the office of your country Chamber of Commerce and Industry and we have the pleasure of requesting your assistance of partnering with us in this business proposal herein below;
The Federal Government of Nigeria intends to sale the three existing petroleum refineries to private individuals and companies. This is to make the refineries more viable, resourceful and to eliminate undue wastage and fraud in the petroleum sector. This privatization is in-line with the recommendations of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) as a prerequisite for future financial assistance to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The refineries are heavily indebted to many companies and my committee has the mandate (task) of compiling the names of these companies and debt owed them and also recommend for payment, all contracts that have been fully executed. With our position in the committee, which comprises of the federal ministry of petroleum resources, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), and the federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) , have successfully secured for ourselves, the sum of US $41.500,000 (Forty One million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). This sum was acquired by carefully inflating the amount of indebtedness by this amount (US $41.500,000.00). We need a reliable company to be included in the list of companies to be paid. This company will be paid for a contract executed in Kaduna Refinery in 1993.

I was therefore mandated in trust by members of the committee, to seek a foreign partner into whose account we could transfer the sum of US $41.500,000, hence I am writing you this letter. We have agreed to share the funds thus: (1) 60% for us (the committee members , 30% for you (the account owner ) and 10% will be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses that will be incurred in the course of this transaction.
We also need assurance from you that you will let us have our share once the inflated amount (US $41,500,000.00) is transferred into your account. What we need from you is that you provide a secured account into which the funds will be transferred/lodged.
Note that this transaction is 100% safe and guaranteed since the law under which our committee was set up, has empowered us to disburse all the funds. We shall commence the transfer of the funds immediately we receive the following information

(1) Your company name and full addresses, Telephone and Fax Number
(2) Your bank's name, telephone and fax number
(3) Your account number and name of would be beneficiary.
The above information will enable us put up letters of claim and job description to the respective ministries for the issuance of the mandatory fund release approval/recommendations. This way, your company will be recognized and accepted as the beneficiary of the contract entitlements before the final remittance to your nominated account, by the Central Bank of Nigeria, being paying bank.

We are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit absolute confidentiality from you in this transaction. Please acknowledge receipt of this letter, using the below email address for more details regarding this transaction. Also endeavor to send the requested information via my personal email address (
