FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WORKS AND HOUSING
  OBALENDE-IKOYI LAGOS.

FROM:  Dr CHARLES A WILLIAMS.

 ASSISTANCE REQUIRED FOR TRANSFER OF US$25M AND
  ACQUISITION OF PROPERTIES (REAL ESTATES]

 Dear Friend,

   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 1996, 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 DOLLARS ONLY). 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. 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  email address. charles_williams1976@yahoo.co.uk or 
charles_williams1975@yahoo.co.uk

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.

 DR CHARLES A. WILLIAMS
