Dear: Sir/Madam,
proposal might come to you as surprise since it is coming from someone you don't
know or ever seen before. But after due deliberation with my colleagues, I
decided to forward this business proposal.
We want a reliable person who could assist us to transfer the sum of
US$37.4M (Thirty seven million,Four hundred Thousand United States
Dollars) into his or her Account. This fund resulted from an over-invoiced bill
from contract awarded by us under the budget allocation to my ministry and the
bill was approved for payment by the concerned ministries.
The contract was executed, commissioned and the Contractor was paid his actual
cost of contract.We are left with the balance of S$37.4M(Thirty seven million,
four hundred thousand United States dollars) as the over-invoiced Amount, which
we have deliberately over estimated for our own use but under our protocol
division,civil servants are forbidden to operate or own foreign account.
This is why I contact you for assistance. We have agreed to share the
money as follows.1. 30% for you account owner)2. 65% for us, 3. 5% for tax, as
may be required by your Government. As you may want to know and make you less
curious, I got your address from a reputable Large chamber of commerce and
industry and I am the executive chairman of the contract Award committee of the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). This transaction is very much
free from all sort of risk hence this business was carefully planned before it
was successfully executed and we the NNPC officials involved
the deal have put in many years of meritorious service to our ministry.
We have been exercising patience for this opportunity for so long and
for most of us this is a lifetime opportunity we cannot afford to miss. To get
this fund into your account, we have to present an international
business outfit and consequent upon indication of your interest to fully assist
us in this transaction. You are advised to furnish us with the following. 1)
Your bankers name and address, telephone, fax and telex numbers. This
information will enable us seek approval of the fund from the concerned
quarters within three to four banking days and the Nigeria National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC) payment information data will be faxed immediately to you
for completion. One of my colleagues and i involved in this deal will come to
your country to arrange for our share upon confirmation from you that the
money has hit your nominated bank account.

All these will only take us about fourteen working days to transfer
this fund into your account from the day we receive the requirement. Your line
of business in this transaction doe s not matter.Honesty and your ability to
keep it secret and keep our own safe when the money hitsyour account is what
matters. Your prompt reply will be highly appreciated by sending your reply
through this mail
address for onward transaction.

Best regards Mr. Kudi Benson
