Director in procurement Department 

Dear Friend,

Before I introduce 
myself, I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail and I 
urge you to treat it serious. I am a Director in procurement Department 
with Petroleum Ministry. I obtained your email while searching for a 
reliable person, who could assist me in receiving transfer of a 
supposed contract awarded funds.  This fund came as a result of over 
estimated contract awarded sums executed by foreign contractors in the 
Petroleum Ministry. The concerned Ministry has approved these over 
invoiced funds for payment. The contracts which the over invoiced sums 
was created from has been executed and commissioned. What I am about to 
receive now, is the over estimated funds which was added during the 
process of obtaining the contracts for my own interest.  

This is a 
normal deal that goes in my Ministry by top officials. department 
approves payments to contractors, and I happen to head the department.
All I want from you is to receive these funds on my behalf as a Sub-Let 
Company, becauseas Government Official I cannot collect the funds 
directly from my Ministry, neither I am allowed by Law to operate/ run 
foreign bank accounts. If you are trustworthy and can assist me in 
receiving the fund,do not hesitate to respond back to me immediately 
with your TELEPHONE number.

Looking forward to hearing from you 

Best regards,
Kingsley Odogun
