It is my great pleasure to write you this letter on
behalf of myself and my colleagues.
I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation
with you in the execution of the deal described
hereunder for the benefit of all the parties and hope
you will keep it as a top secret because of the
nature of the business.
Within the Ministry of Petroleum Resources where I
work as a director, Project Implementation and with
the co-operation of four other top officials, we have
in our possesion an overdue payment bill totalling
Twenty Seven million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars
(US$27,500,000.00) which we want to transfer abroad
with the assistance and co-operation of a foreign
company or individual to receive the said fund on our
behalf or a reliable foreign non-company account to
receive such fund.
The amount represents some percentage of the total
contract value executed on behalf of my Ministry by a
foreign contracting firm which we the official
over-invoiced. Though the actual contract cost have
been paid to the original contractor, leaving the
balance of US$27.5M which we have in principle gotten
an approval to remit to a foreign bank account which
you will provide. Since the present Government of
Nigeria is determined to pay every Foreign contractor
all debts owed so as to maintain good relationship
with Foreign and non-Government Financial Agencies, we
then decided to include our bills for payment with the
co-operation of some officials from the Ministry of
Finance (FMF) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
We are seeking your assistance in providing a good
company’s account or any other bank account into
we can remit this money by fronting as the
This process being an internal arrangement with the
departments concerned. I have the authority of my
partners-involved to propose this deal to you as you
might be willing to assist us in this transaction. For
your assistances we shall offer you 20% of total fund,
75% for us and 5% for any miscellaneous expenses that
may be incurred by both parties.
The business is 100% hitch free on your part provided
you treat it with utmost secrecy and confidentiality.
Please include your Bank Account particulars and
Tel/fax Number(s) for the deal to commence.
Also your area of specialization is not a hiderance to
the successful execution of this transaction. I shall
repose my confidence in you and hope that you will
not disappoint me.
Thanks and God bless
