Dear Sir

I am DR DOM EZE , Deputy secretary to the Nigerian Football Association,
parent body of the World Youths Championship,
Nigeria 99'Local Organizing Committee, an affiliate of Federation of
International Football Association (FIFA).

In the course of our preparation to host the World Youth Soccer Championship
Tagged (Nig¡¦99) early last two years, huge sum
of money running into millions of United States Dollars was budgeted by the
then Military Government for the successful
organization of this competition. In the same vein, FIFA via its President,
Mr. Joseph(SEPP) Blatter, made millions of dollars
available for the same project, not to talk of Corporate Organizations and
Football loving individuals who made huge donations.

However, in my capacity as the deputy secretary, to both the Local
Organizing Committee (LOC), a! nd the Nigerian Football
Association(NFA), I,along with two of my colleagues in sensitive positions
were able to over-invoice most contracts, which were
awarded for the construction and the refurbishing of the 8 stadia used for
the competition. The contractors who handled these
projects have been paid-off.

It is pertinent to note that a total sum of thirty-two million United States
Dollars(US$32,000,000.00) was realized as over-invoice
after the successful completion of the project.

This over-invoiced sum is lying in my organization's (NFA) suspense account
with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), ready for
transfer into the beneficiarys account oversea, waiting for the appropriate
opportunity to do so.

In this years (2003) budget speech, the new Civilian President has ordered
that all foreign contractors debts should be paid in
order to boost more Foreign investors into Nigeria.

On this note, I have been unanimously mandated by my two colleagues to seek
an honest and trustworthy Foreigner who will
assist in ensuring the successful transfer of the above sum into a
personal/company account since the Nigerian code of
conduct does not allow us (Civil servants) to operate foreign accounts.

It is pertinent also to let you know that 30% of the total fund will be for
you, while 10% will be used to settle any expenses that
might be incurred by both parties and the remaining 60% will be for us (my
colleagues and I) to be invested in your country.

We have chosen you /your company to benefit with us in this transaction due
to the respect your country commands here.

You might be surprised and curious of an offer like this, be rest assured
that the modalities andlogistics towards the
successful transfer of this fund has been worked out. All we require from
you is your co-operation. This transaction is risk free.

We kindly request that you accord it the highest level of secrecy it
deserves. EMAIL:ezewise5@37.com
Your swift response will be highly appreciated.
