It is my great pleasure in writing you this letter on behalf of my
colleagues. As you may want to know and to make you less curious, your
particulars were given to me by a member of the Nigerian Export
Promotion Council (N.E.P.C.) who was with the Federal Government
delegation on a trip to your country during a bilateral talk
conference to encourage foreign investors. I have decided to seek a
confidential co-operation with you in the execution of a deal
described here under for the benefit of all parties, and hope you will
keep it a top secret because of the nature of this business. Please
before I proceed, I will not fail to ask about the modification of
your dear health which is momentous in human dignity.
Within the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN where I work as the Executive
Governor and with the co-operation of two other top Government
officials, we have in our possession as overdue contract payment,
bills totaling Thirty Two Million United States Dollars (USD $32
Million). The amount represented some percentage of the contract value
executed on behalf of Ministry of Petroleum by a foreign contracting
firm, which we the officials over-invoiced. Though the actual contract
cost has been paid to the original contractor, leaving the balance in
the tune of the said amount Thirty Two Million United States Dollars
(USD $32 Million) which we have in principles gotten approval to remit
by Key Tested Telegraphic Transfer (K.T.T) to any foreign bank account
you will provide. It is based on this that me and my colleagues have
decided to establish a cordial business relationship with you, hence
my contacting you.
We are seeking your assistance to front you as the original
beneficiary of the said fund so that we can release the fund into your
account for safety and subsequent
disbursement and investments in your country. This is why I am
contacting you to be our custodian for this fund because under our
protocol division, civil servants are
forbidden to operate or own foreign accounts so by virtue of our
position as civil servants, we cannot acquire this money in our names.
I have therefore been delegated
as a matter of trust by my colleagues to look for an overseas partner
whom will help us to transfer and invest with the funds in a
profitable business in his/her country. We have agreed to share the
1. 30% will goes to you as the account owner.

will commence the transaction from the date of receipt of the
following information from you i.

a new account for this business.
With these information, we are going to put in application for the
release of this funds (US$32 Million) into your account for us all.

transaction so contact me immediately through my private e-email
address firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your interest and
willingness to assist me and my colleagues in this lucrative
transaction for further information on the requirements and procedure

that can assist to investment the funds on his/her name without
linking our names to the project due to the present administration in
our country. It took us expensive ideas and money to fine-tune all the
preparations for this transaction to meet all legal and administrative
