I want a reliable person who could assist me to transfer the sum of US$40.5M (Forty Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) only into his account for Real Estate investment. This fund resulted from an over-invoiced bill from a contract awarded by us under the budget, allocated to my ministry and the bill was approved for payment by the concerned ministries. The contract has been executed. Commissioned, the contractor has been paid his actual cost for the contract. I am now left with the balance of US$40.5M as the over-invoiced amount, which I have deliberately over estimated for my own use. But under my protocol division, civil servants are forbidden to operate or own a foreign account. This is why I contacted you for assistance and for the fact that my interst is to invest this funds into real estate. I have agreed that you will be entitled for 30% of the total sum, 60% for me which i will also redirrected into real estate investment, while 10% for any expenses incurred while transacting the business and whatever left from the 10% will be shared equally. As you may rightly want to know I got your address from the web under real estate listing due to my quest to carry out this mutual rewarding project.

I have been exercising patience for this opportunity for so long due to my my dream of investing on real estate, this is a lifetime opportunity we cannot afford to miss. This transaction is very much free from all sorts of risks and it is 100% real. To enable me get this fund paid into your account, I have to secured some valuable document with your company name or names once you agree to carry out this deal with me i will furnish you with details.
