 I am an 
Accountant and the chairman of the tender committee which awards 
contract in the department of the petroleum Resources of Nigeria . I 
sent you a mail through an internet sometime ago informing you of our 
plan to transfer the sum of USD$23.6million (Twenty Three million, Six 
hundred thousand US Dollars only) to your account. I have been waiting 
to hear from you,but up till now, nothing has been heard from you hence 
this particular message.

 I want you to know that this funds 
originated from an Over-invoiced contract sum which was awarded to a 
foreign firm in 1999. I and my three (3)other colleagues in the tender 
Board purposely inflated the actual cost of the contract to the tune of 
USD$23.6 Million.

 However, the original contractor has fully executed 
the contract, the project commissioned and the contractor paid his 
actual contract worth, leaving behind the over-invoiced sum. So, it is 
based on this that we now want you / your company to come forward to 
claim this sum on our behalf. We are Civil Servants, and we are not 
allowed to operate foreign account while still in office, so you are 
therefore to act as one who had executed a contract worth the sum of 
USD$23.6 million for my Department and you now want your payment.

deal is 100% risk free. We are perfectly in charged and had worked out 
modalities that would guarantee a hitch free transfer of this fund to 
your account. We have also mapped out 35% of the total sum for you for 
your help and assistance while the remaining is for me and my 

 If you are interested in the proposal, and you are a 
trustworthy person who would not sit on this money if it is transferred 
into your account, kindly indicate by contacting me through my private 
telephone/fax numbers,or via my E-mail.You can as well send your bank 
account details for this transfer.

This deal must be kept absolutely 
confidential till we succeed. Thank you as we look forward to your 
anticipated co-operation.

NOTE : After a successful transfer, 35% for 
you, 65% for us. We will also visit you immediately we conclude this 
transaction to collect and invest our shares of the total sum into any 
viable business you may advise us in your country.

Nevertheless,i got 
your email contact information through an internet.

 Contact me 
urgently through my Telephone or my email.( )

Best regards, 
DR Chris Ubah.
