Attn: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
URGENT BUSINESS TRANSACTION
I got your contact from the Library of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), and somehow I feel that we can both handle this transaction in good fate to our overwhelming benefit.
May I start by introducing myself, I am ENGR. GEORGE ORUMA IGE, the son of CHIEF BOLA IGE the former Minister for Mines and Power and presently the Minister for Justice and later shot dead on 23rd December, 2001.
I work with National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) of Nigeria, I am presently the General Technical Manager and also Chairman of the Contract Award Committee of my parastatal.
When my father was the Minister for Mines and Power he received a staggering amount of One Hundred twenty million United States Dollars only (US$120,000,000.00) from the Presidency for the turn-around maintenance of all Hydro Energy Station and a few Sub-station in the country.
He tactically hid away the sum of Thirty-five million United States Dollars (US$35,000,000.00) in a suspense account with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), this fund was clearly labelled "A Contractor's Payment". This he did before he moved to Ministry of Justice and later assacinated him.
Now that my father safely in his new Ministry, he has given me a go ahead to get a reliable and reputable foreigner that will assist me in receiving the fund in his account as the original contractor that has to be paid. He said this is my inheritance from him and that he will have nothing to do with it, more so, now that we have a young democracy all eyes are on the office holders.
One begins to wonder why I can not go aboard, open an account and have the money transferred there all by myself as this of course could have assured utmost confidentiality of the transaction.
I can not, because I am Civil Servant and the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria forbids any serving Civil Servant maintaining foreign account(s). Secondly, I can not resign my appointment in order to handle this transaction as an independent businessman, because I can not monitor this transfer effectively from outside my office.
Thirdly, the fund in question has been embarked "A Contractor's Payment", therefore, the supposed foreign contractor must be presented before the fund can be legally paid. Fourthly, my contacting you is born out of the fact that I need a foreign company/person with a strong capital base to hold this huge amount (US$35,000,000.00) in trust, otherwise eye brows could be raised if it is paid into a lesser account.
In transferring this money into your account, it is my considered opinion that you get 30% of the total sum, 10% shall be set aside to take care of all expenses, and 60% shall be kept in your account till I come over to your country to invest it with your guidance.
For a smooth sail of this transaction, a masterpiece plan has been put in place to the effect that the whole operation will take twenty-one working days to drive it to a successful or logical conclusion. (I mean to remit the fund into your nominated account ).
A contract number from a contract that has been concluded and the contractor paid in full has been reasign to this fund, which means that we now have an authentic contract number to work with. Every paper/file in connection with this transaction shall be carefully withdrawn from all offices concerned, after the money must have been safely remitted into your account, thus leaving no trace of the fund.
However, you should treat this business with utmost confidentiality, as I and my father do not want anything to jeopardise our position in the office. If you are interested in this transaction, I expect you to contact me through my E-mail address: to enable me instruct you on what to do as well as furnish you with further details. All I needed from you are the following:-
YOUR BANK PARTICULARS
THE NAME OF THE BANK AND ADDRESS
THE ROUTING NUMBER AND SORT CODE
THE TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS OF THE BANK
THE ACCOUNT NUMBER
YOUR COMPANY PHONE AND FAX AND YOUR PERSONAL PHONE AND FAX FOR EASY COMMUNICATION ALSO YOUR FULL ADDRESS TO REACH YOU.
Awaiting to hear from you as soon as you finish reading the message.
