Dear Sir, BUSINESS PROPOSAL I write to inform you of my intrest in investing in your country. I came across your companys profile via the internet and deemed it wise to contact you directly as an existing firm with enough experience to assist me in my venture. I am the Director General, foreign contract awarding commitee in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC) and with my position in office,I was able to accumulate US$8 million via over invoicing of contracts awarded under my ministry.Due to the tense political situation over here in Nigeria,I wish to retire and relocate my family to your country hence my contacting you. I want to invest this money in your line of business with your help. Also I would need your assistance in transfering the funds out of here since i do not operate any foreign account and moreso I would have to do it in a way that would not attract government attention to the transfer. I will arrange contract papers in your company name and get approvals from all concerned ministries so that the funds can be tranfered to your account as contract payment. Please confirm your interest in assisting me on the above. I am willing to discuss ratio of sharing upon your interest in this transaction and also for helping me to settle my family in your country. Kindly reply to this message to enable me know your position and also to advice you on how we will go about it.
