- Dear Sir,
I am Dr Osita John, the chairman of contract award and review committee set up by the federal government of Nigeria under the new civilian dispensation to award new contracts and review existing ones I came to know of you in my search for a reliable and reputable person to handle a very confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account.There were series of contracts executed by a consortium of multi-nationals in the oil industry infavor of N.N.P.C. The original values of thesecontracts were deliberately over invoiced to the sumof US$12,320,000.00 (Twelve Million Three Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars). This amount has now been approved and is now ready to be transferred being that the companies that actually executed these contracts have been fully Paid and the projects officially commissioned.Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account for subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the code of conduct bureau (civil service law) from operating and/or opening foreign accounts in our names. Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous, in return, we have agreed to offer you 20% of the transferred sum, while 10% shall be set aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) between both parties in the course of the transaction you will be mandated to remit the balance to other accounts in due course.Modalities have been worked out at the highest levelof the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of Nigeria for the immediate transfer of the funds within 7 working days subject to your satisfaction of the above stated terms.Our assurance is that your role is risk free. To accord this transaction the legality it deserves and for mutual security of the funds the whole approval procedures will officially and legally processed with your name or the name of any company you may nominate as the bonefide beneficiary.Once more I want you to understand that having put in over twenty-five years in the civil service of my country, I am averse to having my image and career dented. This matter should therefore be treated with utmost secrecy and urgency it deserves.Please you should signify your intention to assist by sending me a reply to this email to state your position on this transaction, if favorable we will take further steps to brief you the full details of this viable transaction.I want to assure you that this business proposal is100% risk free as we have done our homework properly.I quite believe that you will protect our interest by taking this deal strictly confidential, as we are still in government service, which we intend to retire from in full honor. Kindly expedite action as we are behind schedule to enable us include this transfer in the next batch which would constitute this quarter payments for the 2003 financial year.
Thank you and God bless.
NB.You are the only person I have contacted for now. Please let me know your capabilities as regards my proposal, as I do not intend to contact any other person, until I am convinced that you are not capable to assist me.
