From:DR.JOSEPH YINKA (Contract Award Committee) Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)NNPC Towers, Kofo Abayomi,Federal Capital Territory. Abuja, Nigeria Email:email@example.com REQUEST FOR YOUR UNRESERVED ASSISTANCE Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you asa surprise and if it might offend you without your prior consent and writing through this channel.I am DR.JOSEPH YINKA The Secretary, of the Contract Award Committee (CAC) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). I got your contact through my country's foreign trade mission after I was convinced in my mind that you or your company can act as the beneficiary of the USD41,500,000.00 (Forty one Million Five hundred thousand United States Dollars only) Which we intend to transfer into a foreign account. This funds was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by us for the TURN AROUND MAINTENANCE (TAM) of our Refineries in WARRI, PORT-HARCOURT and KADUNA and also the Supply of hard/soft wares, pharmaceuticals/medical items, light and heavy duty vehicles, apparels and other administrative logistics for the NNPC. Therefore, we have resolved to go into partnership with you to transfer the sum of US$41.5m into your account, by awarding your company an invented contract to the tune of US$41.5m. While we must carry out proper documentation to ensure that this is 100% risk-free for you and all the legal requirements are met. It is however agreed, as the account owner in this deal to allow you 20% of the entire sum as compensation, 70% will be held on trust for us while 10% will be used to defray any incidental charges and costs during the course of the transaction. This transaction will be successfully concluded within 14 Bank Working days. If you accord to us your unalloyed and due cooperation. Be rest assured that this proposal is 100% risk-free and please, keep this very confidential, as we are still civil servants in active service and are bounded by the civil service commission acts of Nigeria. This acts Prohibits Civil Servants (like us) from owning/operating foreign accounts. This is the only reason we contacted you and where you come into this transaction.Finally,I wish to assure you that all the machinery and logistics that will ensure a successful and smooth transfer have been put in place. Since we are going to use our connections in the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to effect the immediate transfer of the funds. Please endeavor to reply for a more detailed information.I anticipate your urgent response. Thank you and God bless you.
