"Make millions helping me defraud somebody else..."


I  am  DR.  Umeh  Martins.  The  financial controller of  the  Nigeria  National  Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)  Headquarters  lagos.    I  am writing  on behalf  of  my  colleagues  in  (NNPC) and  have  been assigned  to  seek  for  the assistance  of  a reliable  foreign  company  through which  we  can transfer  the  sum  of  THIRTY  MILLION U.S  DOLLARS ONLY  (US$30,000,000).  This money  is  deposited  in the  NNPC  Treasury  account with  the  Central  Bank of Nigeria.

ORIGIN OF THE FUND: This  sum  arose  from  the deliberated over-invoicing  of  contract awarded  by my ministry  (NNPC)  to  foreign  firm  in  the twilight days  of  the  last  military  regime.  This contract has  been  completely  executed  and commissioned and  the  contractor  that  handled this contract  has  collected  his  full  and  final payment  thus  leaving  behind  the  above  stated amount  which  represent  the  over  invoiced  sum. We have  been  safeguarding  this  money  for conducive time  for  it's transfer  out  of  the country  for our  personal  use.  However, the code of  employment does  not  allow  us  (civil servants) to  own  and operate  foreign  account  and  because  the  contract was  handled  by  aforeign  firm  and  the  payment made  in  dollars, we  now  need  a  foreign  partner that  will present  himself  as  the  sub-contractor so  that the  fund will  be  transfer into  your company's or  personal account. Your  address  was made  available  to  us by  a very  good  friend  who work  with  the Nigeria export  promotion  council and  he  assured us  of  your  company's  viability and  capability  in business   transaction.  This assurance  gave  us the courage  to  link  you  up  in this  particular transaction  and  I  hope  it  will be  of mutual benefit  to  all  of  us. Note  that the  nature  of  your  business  is  not  particularlyrelevant  to the  success  of  the  transaction.  All we  require is  your  willingness  to  present yourself  as  the  subcontractor  by  providing  your bank  information so  that  the  fund  will  be transferred  into  your account.

SHARING  RATIO:For  your  assistance  in  this business  ,  your share  will  be  30% of  the  total fund.  I  and  my colleagues  will  take  60%  while we  set  aside 10%  for  any  expenses  that  may incurred  in  the course  of  this  transaction.  If you  are  willing to  assist  us  in  this business. Forward the particulars of your bank account and also your private phone and fax numbers.

This  information  will  enable  us  put  an application  for  payment  approval  to the concerned Ministries and  final  to  the  Central Bank  of Nigeria  (C.B.N)  and  it  is  going  to last  for 6-7  working  days  starting  from  the day  we receive  the  above  information.  All modalities  for the  take -off  of  this  transaction have  been worked  out  and  further  action  will commence immediately  we  hear  from  you. I  am waiting  for your  reply  via  my private email address  for security  reasons.

Thanks, yours faithfully.

Dr.  Umeh  Martins
