Dear Sir, I, on behalf of my Partners from the federal ministry of health and the hospital management board, we are soliciting for your personal assistance that will enable us transfer the sum of US$9.5 million into any account of your choice be it private or a company's account. We got your contact information from our foreign trade directory and we also apologies for any in convince that this mail might cause you. However, we choose to reach you by email message as it remains fastest and more secured way for communication. we knew that this mail will come to you as a surprise but you just have to bear with us because of the urgency it requires. The federal ministry of health and the hospital management board awarded contracts to some companies in 2004/2005 for building,maintenance and supply of drugs to all public hospitals in our federation this contract was supervised by my committee which i was the committee head. We were able to over invoice this contract amount to the tune of US$9.5million (Nine Million, five hundred thousand united states of American dollars). I and a few other officials here of the health sector have worked out these schemes to benefit alongside any foreign partner who provide us with account to transfer this amount. Being a civil servant we cannot keep such amount of fund in our personal bank accounts here in my country Nigeria and we cannot also operate any foreign bank account in our name as the law of our nation does not permit a civil servant to own a foreign account This has been a major hindrance on our side and so we decide to contact you to be our foreign partner for our mutual benefit. We have agreed among ourselves to give you US$3 million (Three million) as a share of the fund if you will be able to nominate account for us the balance US$6.5 million is what you will give us when we meet you in your country face to face. All the modalities towards the transfer of this fund is in place and we have done our home work very well and we assure you of 100% risk free transaction which you MUST keep very confidential until the fund is duly remitted into the account you will provide. If you find this proposal interesting to you, confirm by a return mail with a phone number i can reach you. Cheers and God bless. Best regards. Dr Popoola Taiwo
