My Compliments. Please review this proposal with an unprejudiced mind-set. It is geared towards opening doors of financial opportunities to our mutual benefit. It is also legitimate and will not require any financial commitments from you. Your email contact was sourced via a casual inquiry of the internet wherein I sought for trustworthy business partners with whom I could build a relationship and thereafter go into business in the investment of some floating contract funds in the sum of 8.5 Million U.S Dollars currently trapped. It is my hope that you are trustworthy enough in helping me free the trapped funds, transfer it, and put it to investment purpose. 10% of the funds will accrue to you for your assistance. To begin with,let me explain the source of the funds: During the last dispensation in my country ,Government officials awarded contracts that were grossly over-invoiced to Foreign Contractors while other Contractors were not paid . The present Government set up the Contract Review Panel ( which I am Secretary of ) and mandated it to use the instruments of payments made available to it by the decree setting up the panel, to review those contracts and if necessary pay those who are being owed outstanding amounts.I have identified the above mentioned sum which have been lying unclaimed for several years and would like to transfer and invest it. However,my position as a serving Civil servant forbids me from operating foreign Bank accounts, this is why I need your assistance. Here is where you come in : I need you to respond and furnish me with the information hereunder which I need to get the project underway viz : 1.FULL NAMES 2.NAME OF BUSINESS / COMPANY 3.ADDRESS 4.TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS With the above information, I will forward an application for payment in your business favour and ensure that it is meets the approval of the Contracts Panel. Upon the transfer of the funds, I will meet with you in your country so that we can go into investment after sharing in the agreed percentages. FINALLY, PLEASE REST ASSURED THAT THIS IS VENTURE IS NOT FRAUDULENT OR A SCAM. AS STATED EARLIER, NO FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS WILL BE REQUIRED FROM YOU AT ANY POINT. I WILL UNDERTAKE TO PERSONALLY SETTLE ALL CHARGES BY HAVING FUNDS SENT TO YOU TO DO SO. Respectfully, Dr Phillips.
