REQUEST FOR URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP
First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction.
This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top
secret. You have been recommended by an associate who assured
confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction
of great magnitude involving a pending business transaction
maximum confidence. I was to meet you in your country in the
a government delegation presently in London of which I am a
. However our trip to your country was called off just this morning,
therefore I decided as an alternative to contact you by mail in the
belief that on my return to Nigeria you would have already received
this letter and responded.
We are top officials of the Federal Government Contract Review Panel
who are interested in the importation of goods into our country with
funds which are presently trapped in Nigeria. In order to commence
this business we solicit your assistance to enable us transfer into
your account the said trapped funds.
SOURCE OF FUNDS : After series of petitions was received by this
present regime from foreign contractors, and also reports from the
World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on the inability
of the Federal Government of Nigeria to fulfill obligations for the
payment to its foreign creditors ,our Head of State( The President) in
conjunction with his Council of Ministers formed this panel, and
mandated us to carry out a careful and comprehensive review of all
overdue payments to foreign contractors who have genuinely completed
their contracts and to effect payments immediately, so as to sanitize
the image of our great country caused by this embarrassments .
We have identified a lot of inflated contract funds awarded during the
last military regime of late General Sanni Abacha , which are
presently (floating) in the Central Bank of Nigeria. However, by
virtue of our position as civil servants and members of this panel, we
cannot acquire this money in our names. I have therefore, been
delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues of the panel to look
for an Overseas partner into whose account we would transfer the sum
of US$36,400,000.00 (Thirty Six Million, Four Hundred Thousand US
Dollars). Hence we are writing you this letter.
Needless to say, the trust reposed in you at this junction is
enormous, we have agreed amongst our selves that for your
confidentiality and assistance in this matter we would be willing to
offer you upon negotiation an agreeable percentage of the total money
and from the profit that will accrue from the net investment. It is
our intention therefore, having your understanding and co-operation to
invest this funds in importation and any worthwhile venture you might
deem fit to advise.
Modalities have been worked out at the highest levels for immediate
remittance of stated funds to your nominated account in 10 working
days, from date of receipt of the following information by TEL/FAX:
234 17 596066 (your bankers name and address, account number, your
telephone and fax numbers). The above information will enable us
write letters of claim and job description respectively. This way we
will use your company's name to apply for payments and re-award the
contract in your company's name. We are looking forward to doing
business with you and solicit your confidentiality in this transaction
. Please acknowledge the receipt of this mail using the above TEL/FAX
number. I will bring you into the complete picture of this pending
project when I have heard from you.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your urgent assistance is required as our assignment
will be concluded this month of December 2000.

the country for security reason and through the help
of a security company, I managed to smuggle the money

RE: MONEY TRANSFER / INVESTMENT PROPOSAL
INTRODUCTIO: l am Dr SANI IBRAHIM a Civil Servant in the Ministry of Health.
l know this proposal will come to you as a surprise because we have not met
before either physically or through correspondence. I got your contact from
our chamber of commerce here in Nigeria and have no doubt in your ability to
handle this proposal involving huge sum of money. My private Email address
is as above.
THE SUBJECT: My father ALHAJI IDRIS IBRAHIM (Now Late) was the Royal Head of
my community, ELEME (an oil rich town) in Nigeria. My community produces
5.8% of the total crude oil production in Nigeria and 0.5% of the Dollar
value of each barrel is paid to my father as royalty by the Federal
Government. My father was also the Chairman of ELEME Special Oil Trust Fund.
In his position as the Royal head and Chairman of the Oil Trust Fund, he
made some money which he left for me as the only heir to inherit.The money
is Twenty Five Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars($25.5m). This Money
originated from the accumulated royalties between 1976-1998 . Due to poor
banking system in Nigeria and political instability as a result of past
Military rules (1985-1999) , he deposited this Money in a Strong
Room/"VAULTS" with an open beneficiary in Apex Bank of Nigeria pending when
he would finish arrangement to transfer it abroad as a CONTRACT PAYMENT. He
was planning this when he died late !
last year of Heart attack.
THE PROPOSAL: Just before my father died he called my attention to the money
and charged me to look for a foreigner who would assist me in the
transfer/investment of the funds abroad. So l would be very grateful if you
could accept to help me achieve this great objective. I promise to give you
20% of the total funds transferred to your vital bank account as
compensation for your assistance. ten percent (10%)would be set aside to
take care of all expenses we may incure during the transaction. To indicate
your interest, contact me urgently and confidentially through my e-mail

business. All the legal Documents concerning this Money will be sent to you
as soon as we agreed together.
May the almighty God bless you.
