CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL OF 25.3 MILLION U.S. DOLLARS
I amDr madu james the managing director of Union Bank Plc, the banker to the
late head of state of Nigeria who died on June 8th 1998 under mysterious
circumstance. I got your contact through commercial department of your
country's embassy in my search for a reliable and trustworthily person to
handle this top-secret transaction. You must therefore keep this transaction
a VERY TOP SECRET.THE SOURCE OF THE FUND The late dictator General Sanni
Abacha deposited the sum of $825.3 million U.S. Dollars in his private
account means which I am the managing director, but with serious conferment
in me that I would never reveal this to anybody apart from his wife Mrs.
Maryam Abacha, which he go as an over invoice from the Ajaokuta Steel Mill
the proposal largest steel Mill in African continent. The contact was
awarded to a Russian firm, but after his mysterious death, the new military
government that emerged then set-up a commission of enquiries into all
contacts awarded by the late dictator, but could not complete their mission
due to the emergence of a democratic government headed by Chief Olusegun
Obasanjo as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, who vowed to
continue with the predecessor commitment by setting up commission of
enquiries to track down the account of the late dictator both in Nigeria and
overseas, through different ways by media and other means. In this cause I
have declared $800 million United states Dollars to the Federal Government
of Nigeria as the family have no knowledge of the total amount deposited in
my bank.While I have transferred the balance of $25.3 million U.S. Dollars
to a subsidiary of Gulf Bank Plc. With the knowledge of three senior
officers of the bank. But we cannot lay claims to this found due to our
position in the bank.
We therefore solicit your assistance in transferring this
amount to your private or company account, as this transaction is risk free
with our involvement. We thereby agreed to compensate you with 25% of the
total sum while 75% would be shared among us, the officials. The said amount
was transferred to SECURITY VAULT & FINANCE COMPANY IN ABROAD through
diplomatic immunities granted to banks in Nigeria and coded for security
reasons to avoid a re-occurrence of a past incident in London in which 1.6
Billion Pounds Sterling belonging to the late dictator was siezed. If you
have any positive response toward my proposal, Then your phone/fax number for more details.
I look forward to your earliest response.
Dr, madu james
