STRICTLY BUSINESS PROPOSAL ( TOP SECRET ) Dear Sir, This is a proposal in context but actually an appeal soliciting your assistance in an urgent transaction requiring maximum confidence.Though this approach appears desperate, I can assure you that whatever questions you would need to ask or any other thing you will need to know regarding this proposal will be adequately answered to give you a clearer understanding of it, so as to arrive at a successful conclusion. I am Mr. Philips Mba, Chief Accountant to the Contract Award and Implementation Commttee (C.A.I.C) in the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC). Sometimes in 2003 , my committee awarded a contract to a conglomerate of foreign companies atttached to NNPC. The contract was over-invoiced to the tune of us$10.5Million this was done deliberately, the over-invoicing was a deal by member of the committee to benefit from the project. We now desire to tranfer this money, which is presently in a suspense account of NNPC with the central Bank of Nigeria into an overseas account which we expected you to assist and provide. For providing the accountwhere we shall remit the money, you will be enititled to 30% of the money. 60% will be for my partner, and me while 10% has been mapped out from the the total sum. This is because as a top civil servant, we are not allowed to operate foreign account which is against the civil service code of conduct in the country. What I will require from you; (1) The name and address of your bank (2) Your account number/ swift code (3) Your private Tel/Fax number (4) Company letter headed paper The above information will be used to process the fund for the release of the money for onward transfer to your account. It does not matter whether or not your company does project of this nature described here, the assumption is that you won a major contract and subcontracted it out to other companies or firms of related fields win major contracts and subcontracts to more specialized firms for execution of such contracts. We have strong connections at the Central bank of Nigeria and The Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no doubt that all this money will be released and transfer if we get the necessary foreign Partner(s) for assistance. Therefore, when the business is successfully concluded, we shall through our same connections withdraw all documents used from all the government ministries for 100% security. If this proposal is of interest to you, then contact me through my Private E-mail I wait in anticipation of your cooperation.
