Best wishes of good health and success in your
pursuits particularly through my proposal as
contained in this letter.Before going into details of my
proposal to you, I must first solicit you to treat it

My colleagues and I are senior officials of the
Federal Government of
Nigeria's Contracts Review Panel who are interested
in diverting some funds that are presently floating in
the accounts of the Central Bank of Nigeria.In order
to commence this transaction, we solicit for your
assistance to enable us transfer into your account
said floating funds. We are determined to conclude
transfer before the end of this financial quarter.
The source of the funds are as follows: During the
last military regime, government officials awarded
contracts that were grossly over-invoiced to
Contractors.The present civilian government set up
Contract Review Panel, which has the mandate to use
the instruments of payments made available to it by
the decree setting up the panel, to review these
contracts and if necessary pay those who are being
owed outstanding amounts.
My colleagues and I have identified quite a huge sum
of these funds which are presently floating in the
Central Bank of Nigeria ready for disbursement and
would like to divert some of it for our own purposes.
However, by virtue of our positions as civil servants
and members of this panel,we cannot acquire these
funds in our names or in the names of companies that
are based in Nigeria. I have therefore been mandated,
as a matter of trust by my colleagues in the panel,
look for a reliable overseas partner into whose
account we can transfer the sum of
U.S.$16,500,000.00(sixteen Million,five hundred
thousand U.S. Dollars). That is why I am writing you
You are at liberty to discuss with us what you feel should be your percentage share of the funds for assisting us.However,10% of the funds has been set aside to offset expenses incurred by both you and us incidental to the actualisation of this project.As soon as we receive the funds,the 10% will be used to settle both paties for expenses before we start the disbursment.
We wish to invest our share of the proceeds of this
project in foreign stock markets and other business till we are ready
and able to have access to them. Please note that this
transactionis 100% safe and risk-free.
We intend to effect the transfer within a few days
from the date of receipt of the following
Your name or company name, address, telephone and
fax numbers. The above information will enable us write
letters of claim and job description respectively.
This way, we will use your name to apply for the
payment and backdate the award of the contract to
We are looking forward to doing this transaction with
you and we solicit for your utmost confidentiality in
this transaction. Please acknowledge the receipt of
this letter and, I will bring you into a more
detailed picture of this transaction when I hear from you.
