Attention: Managing Director/ C.E.O.
Request for Urgent Business Relationship.
First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction.
This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential
and top secret. We shall be counting on your ability and reliability
to prosecute a transaction of great magnitude involving a
pending business transaction requiring maximum confidence.
We are top officials of the Federal Government Contract Review
Panel who are interested in 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 RECIEVE the said trapped funds ABROAD.
The source of this fund is as follows: During the regime
of our late head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha, the government
officials set up companies and awarded themselves contracts
which were grossly over-invoiced in various Ministries. The
NEW CIVILIAN Government set up a Contract Review Panel (C.R.P)
and we have identified a lot of inflated contract funds which
are presently floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N).
However, due to 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 the sum of US$31,000,000.00 (Thirty one Million
United States Dollars) WILL BE PAID BY TELEGRAPHIC TRANSFER.
Hence we are writing you this letter.
We have agreed to share the money thus: 70% for us (the officials)
20% for the FOREIGN PARTNER (you) 10% to be used in settling
taxation and all local and foreign expenses.
It is from this 70% that we wish to commence the importation
business. Please note that this transaction is 100% safe and
we hope that the funds arrive your account in latest ten (10)
banking days from the date of reciept of the following information
by TEL/FAX: 234-1-7747907: A suitable name and bank account
into which the funds can be paid.
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 name.
We are looking forward to doing business with you and solicit
your confidentiality in this transaction.
For security reasons, please respond only to the above Tel/Fax
number or email addresses. I will bring you into the complete
picture of this pending project when I have heard from you.
Dr. Lawrence Bariga.
