Attention: The President/Ceo,
1 Idowu Taylor Street,
P.O.Box 109, Lagos, Nigeria
My greetings to you!!.
Confidential Business Proposal.
Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered
from the Nigerian Chambers Of Commerce and Industry, I have the privilege to
request your assistance to transfer the sum of $47,500,000.00 (forty seven
million, five hundred thousand United States dollars) into your accounts.
The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract, executed,
commissioned and paid for about five years (5) ago by a foreign contractor.
This action was however intentional and since then the fund has been in a
suspense account at The Central Bank Of Nigeria Apex Bank.
We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come
in. It is important to inform you that as civil servants, we are forbidden
to operate a foreign account; that is why we require your assistance. The
total sum will be shared as follows: 60% for us, 35% for you and 5% for
local and international expenses incidental to the transfer.
The transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). If you find this
proposalacceptable, we shall require the following documents:
1) Your Full Names.
2) Your Residential or Company Address.
3) Your Private Mobile, Telephone and Fax numbers where you can be reached.
4) Your bank name,address and account number.
Alternatively we will furnish you with the text of what to type into your
letter-headed paper, along with a breakdown explaining, comprehensively what
we require of you. The business will take us thirty (30) working days to
Please reply urgently.
