Please reply to:

Dear Sir,
I would like to firstly send to you the best wishes of good health and
success in your pursuits particularly through my proposal as contained in this letter.
Before going into details of my proposal to you, I must first implore
you to treat with the utmost confidentiality as this is required for its
success and to have faith in this transaction,for opportunities like this only
comes to one once in a life time.
My colleagues and I are senior officials of the Federal Government of
my country's Contracts Review Panel (CRP) who are interested in diverting
some funds that are presently floating in the accounts of the Apex Bank of
my country.In order to commence this transaction, we solicit for your
assistance to enable us transfer into your nominated account the said floating funds. We are 
determined to conclude the transfer before the end of this quarter of 2006.
The source of the funds are as follows: During the last military regime
in my country,government officials set up companies and awarded themselves
contracts that were grossly over-invoiced in various ministries and
parastatals.The present civilian government set up the Contract Review
Panel,which has the mandate to use the instruments of payments made
available to it by the decree setting up the panel, to review these contracts and if necessary pay 
those who are being owed outstanding amounts.
My colleagues and I have identified quite a huge sum of these funds
which are preently floating in our (Apex) Central Bank ready for disbursement and would like to 
divert some of it for our own purposes. However, by virtue of our positions as civil servants and 
members of this panel, we cannot acquire these funds in our names or in the names of companies that 
are based in my country.
I have therefore been mandated,as a matter of trust by my colleagues in
the panel, to look for a reliable overseas partner into whose account we
can transfer the sum of U.S.$20,500,000.00 (Twenty million, five hundred
thousand U.S. dollars).That is why I am seeking your assistance. We have agreed to share the money 
to be transferred into your account, if you agree with our proposition as follows;
(i)25% to the account owner(you).
(ii)70% or us (the panel officials).
(iii)5% to be used in settling all expenses (by both you and us)
incidental to the actualization of this project.
We wish to invest our share of the proceeds of this project in foreign
stock markets and other viable business till we are ready and able to have
access to them without raising any eyebrows here at home. Please note that this transaction is 100% 
safe and risk-free.
We intend to effect the transfer within ten (10)banking days from the
date of receipt of the following information through the ifax number stated
above:Your company's name,address,telephone and fax numbers. we will use your company's name to 
apply for the payment and backdate the award of the contract in favour of your company.
We are looking forward to doing this transaction with you and we
solicit for your utmost confidentiality in this transaction.
I will bring you into a more detailed picture of this transaction when
I hear from you.Please get in touch ONLY through my
alternative email address:
Best regards,
