PROPOSAL FOR TRANSFER OF TWENTY MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND
US DOLLARS (US$20.5M) TO YOUR ACCOUNT.
Your contact address got to me via export promotions council, your reliability and
trustworthiness in business transaction was the main conviction that compelled
me to solicit for your support in this deal. I am the assistant Financial Controller of the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Lagos, Nigeria and Secretary to
the Contract Award Committee of my Ministry.
In collaboration with my colleagues, we have agreed to transfer out of the
Country through Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) some amount and we will later
reinvest it abroad after the success of this transaction. The amount involved is
Twenty Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars (US$20,500,000.00). This is as
a result of over inflated amount of a contract.
The contract has already been executed and the original contractor had collected
his full and final payment. In as much as this contract was awarded to a Foreign
Contractor and the payment in dollars, we now need a Foreign firm that will
present itself as the contractor for this amount of Twenty Million, Five Hundred
Thousand US Dollars (US$20,500,000.00) and then the fund will be transferred
into your account. Since we do not want to use the original contractor in applying
for the payment, because the Contractor is not aware of this over-invoiced sum.
Therefore, I as the Financial Controller was told to write you by my colleagues and
see the success of the remittance immediately, you will however, be required to
furnish us with these necessary information.
1. Your personal phone number for easy communication

Beneficiary's name. It could be personal or corporate.
This information will enable us put APPLICATION OF CLAIM for the release of this
money from concerned Government Agencies and it will last for ten working
days. For your assistance we have agreed that the fund will be shared as
You as the Account Owner 20% Miscellaneous Expenses 5% Officials Involved
75% Now, we assure you that all arrangements have been concluded for the
success of this transaction, so if you are interested, reply us STRICTLY
