Greetings to you this blessed day, I am Mr.David Abbey from Nigeria in West Africa and I am an Accountant with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (N.N.P.C).
First and Fore most,I apologize using this medium to reach you for a proposition of this magnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium. I
have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the deal described herein for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it as a top secret because of the Nature of this transaction.
Within the N.N.P.C where I work as an executive accountant and With the co-operation of other four top officials, we have in our possession an overdue payment bills totaling THIRTY-FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$35 Million) which we want to transfer abroad with the assistance and co-operation of a foreign company/individual to receive the said funds on our behalf or a reliable foreign company/private account to receive such funds.
However, we are handicapped in these circumstances, as the Nigerian Civil Service Code of Conducts does not allow us to operate offshore accounts hence your total co-operation in
this transaction is very important.
This amount (US$35 Million) represents the balance of the total contract value executed on behalf of my department by a foreign contracting firm based in the USA, which we the officials over-invoiced deliberately.
Though the actual contract cost have been paid to the original contractor, leaving the balance in the tune of the said amount, which we have in principle gotten approval to remit by telegraphic transfer (T.T) to any foreign bank account you will provide by filling in an application through the Federal Ministry of Finance here in Nigeria for the transfer of rights and privileges of the former
contractor to you. I have the authority of my partners involved to propose, that should you be willing to assist us in this transaction, your share will be 30% of the total sum, 60% for us and 10% for taxation and miscellaneous expenses.
Most importantly, I want you to know that this project will require some of our time and service but I assure that your stand in this matter will never be overlooked and you will be generously rewarded for your participation.
The business itself is 100% safe on your part, as long as you handle it with professional confidentiality.
Also your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction. I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me.
Endeavor to contact me immediately through the above email address to signify whether you are interested to assist us,as we have already concluded arrangement to finish this transaction within 10 working days on your response.
If you are willing to work this out with us,kindly forward the following information to me in your response.
1.Your Full Names.
2.Your Contact Address.
3.Your Personal Telephone Number.
Finally, I want you to guarantee me that our share will be honestly kept for us soon after the transfer is made.
