Hello, I am writing you this mail today on personal grounds and l implore you to get back to me in earnest. I am interested in doing business with your humble self, but before I proceed further, I want you to please note that this is not a sort of joke, I mean business. I want to invest heavily in your country and other countries within your geographical zone as you may indicate as ideal. Once you are interested in this proposed joint venture transaction, I will be giving you a breakdown; we will start relating with each. As you may wish to know, I am the director of P.P.M.C (Petroleum Products Marketing Company); a subsidiary of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation,CC N.N.P.C. My office is in charge of selling crude oil to foreign companies/countries that come to lift or buy oil as well as registering and certifying each and every one of them before a single barrel is lifted. As a result of the recent upsurge in the price of crude oil, I and some of my colleague make 30 cent on a barrel and for over the period of 2 months, we had realized US$50 M (FIFTY MILLION US DOLLARS). As civil servants getting this money out of my country (Nigeria) for investment poses a problem, following the fact that Government officials are prohibited from running a foreign account, and as such, I crave your indulgence to assist in this regard, if you wish to assist, kindly mail me back. So we could go in to business. Please Email me your response to my personal box: (firstname.lastname@example.org) As the transaction progress, you stand the chance to negotiate what your cut will be from the US$50 M (FIFTY MILLION US DOLLARS). I further assure you that this is a risk-free business, Thank you for anticipated cooperation. I shall be expecting your response. I remain Yours truly Dr Godian Okocha
