HEADQUARTERS- ABUJA ANNEX OFFICE.
FROM THE DESK OF REV DR. DAVID UCHE.
Secretary Contract Awarding Committee
REQUEST FOR URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL.
After due consideration, I decided to forward this proposal to you.
I want a reliable person who could assist me to transfer the sum of
Sixty Million Five Hundred United States Dollars (US$60.5,000,000.00)
into his/her account.
This fund resulted from an over-invoiced bill from contract awarded by
us under the budget allocation to my ministry and the bill was approved
for payment by the concerned ministries. The contract has been
executed, commissioned and the contractor was paid the actual cost of
the contract. We are left with the balance of US$60.5,000,000.00 as
part of the over-invoiced amount, which i have deliberately over
estimated, for my own.
I am contacting you to be my custodians for this fund. 40% for you
(Account Owner) .60% for me. As you may want to know and to make you
less curious, I got your address from adverts, in business directory
that portrayed your establishment in good light.
This transaction is very much free from all sorts of RISK and TROUBLE
from my or your Government. I have been exercising patience for this
opportunity for so long and to most of us this is a life time
opportunity we cannot afford to miss.
To get this fund paid into your foreign establishment like yours we
will seek approval to transfer the fund within 7 banking days through
the BANK to your designated Bank Account. Consequently upon your
acceptance of my proposal i will let you know what is needed for us to
proceed.Kindly confirm you interest by revert email to me through my
personal e-mail:, your indication by revert email to me of your sincere
and serious interest will enable me email you the procedures.
It will surprise you why I choose you and trusted you for this
transaction. Yes, I believe that good friends can be discovered and
business like this cannot be realized without trust. This is why I have
decided to trust you for this transaction not withstanding that I do
not know you in person and same with you.
I am looking forward to doing this transaction with you. Be further
informed that everyone's interest and Security had been considered
before I contacted you. So be rest assured and fell free to go into
this transaction with me. I will come to your country to invest my
share upon the confirmation from you that the money has been credited
into your nominated Bank Account.
But let honestly be our watch word throughout this transaction and
your prompt reply will be highly appreciated.
REV,DR. DAVID UCHE.
