I am Mr. Great Erezi the Deputy Director of finance in the foreign payment department of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). I was mandated by my Director and the chief auditor in my department.
I am writing to intimate you with a business which needs a foreign Company's assistance to execute. In my department, we have US$18m(Eighteen Million US Dollars Only) over invoice bill after auditing. This money arose from deliberate over-invoiced bill which we added during last, Military regime to a foreign Company. Now, the government in power has directed that all contracts duly completed during and after the last regime be paid in this last quarter of the financial fiscal year 2006.
It is this remaining over-value sum as above, that I and other official in the various Department of the ministry have now decided to transfer into your account for safety, and subsequently disburse in the percentage as follows:20% for you, the account owner, 70% for us the partners in Nigeria and 10% for taxation and any expenses that might be incured during the course of this transaction.
After the transaction three officials will be coming to your country to take care of our own fund. 2. Note you are expected to maintain confidentiality of the project that we have, as we have putting in many years of meticulous services to the government with maturity, top most secrecy and urgency, please reply urgently through this email address: (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Thank you very much for your anticipated co-operation.
Mr. Great Erezi
