Dear sir 

I am making this contact with you on behalf of my colleagues. I am a member of the TENDER BOARD 
COMMITTEE of the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing of Lagos Nigeria. 

Our duties includes: award, evaluation and review of contracts. In 2000, my committee (TBC) awarded 
a contract of US$150,000,000 (One Hundred and Fifty Million United States Dollars only) to a joint 
venture of SPEIBATIGNOLES and FOUGEROLLE, for an engineering, procurement, construction of pipeline 
network a Eleme Petro-Chemical plant. As it were, the acuta contract sum was deliberately 
over-invoiced by us (TBC) with the sum of US$25,000,000.00 (TWENTY-FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES 

The project was executed, commissioned and the contractor(s) paid accordingly. My colleagues and I 
want to transfer the over-invoiced amount into a viable foreign account. We have therefore resolved 
that as long as you can act as the sole beneficiary of the fund. The following will be the mode of 
sharing: 25% (i.e US$6.25M) for beneficiary i.e. owner of account, 10% for expenses incurred during 
the course of transfer, and 65% for us the officials. Let me reiterate at this juncture, that there 
are top and influential government officials involved in this transfer and as such I would 
appreciate it, if this business is treated with utmost confidentiality. 

I do hope I can trust you as regards this matter. In the light of this, I would like you to forward 
to me the following information: 

1. Your company name and address if any 

2. Your personal fax number 

3. Your personal telephone number for easy communication. 

Please forward details to my private email at

This will enable us to forward the information to the Corporation for purposes of processing and 
immediate remittance of this funds to the account that will be provided by you. All modalities have 
been worked out and the necessary machinery put in place with the officials of the Federal Ministry 
of Finance and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to effect this transfer within the shortest 
possible time. It is worthy to note that this transaction is 100% risk free, my only fear is the 
confidentiality of this business from your end. 

It is pertinent to note that only an expatriate firm can lay claim to this fund. We are barred from 
operating foreign accounts as civil servants still serving the government. As soon as the payment 
is effected, and the amount mentioned above is successfully transferred into your account, we 
intend to use own share in acquiring some properties (Real Estates) Abroad. For this too, you shall 
also serve as our agent. Please send your reply through this my email address and I shall send you 
my phone number as we progress. 

Note that this E-mail is not one of those Internet jokes and should be treated with seriousness, 
utmost important and confidentiality. Your quick response will be highly appreciated. If however, 
you are not disposed to assist, kindly destroy this letter, in view of the confidentiality of the 
proposed transaction and for the interest of the personalities involved. 

Yours faithfully, 

Williams Odili Fidelis

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
