I, ON BEHALF OF MY OTHER COLLEAGUES FROM DIFFERENT FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA OWNED PARASTATALS DECIDED TO SOLICIT YOUR ASSISTANCE AS REGARDS THE TRANSFER OF THE ABOVE STATED AMOUNT INTO YOUR ACCOUNT. THIS FUND AROUSE FROM THE OVER-INVOICING OF VARIOUS CONTRACT AWARDED IN MY PARASTATALS TO CERTAIN FOREIGN CONTRACTORS SOME TIME AGO.

WE AS HOLDERS OF SENSITIVE POSITIONS IN OUR PARASTATALS WE ARE MANDATED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA TO SCRUTNIZE ALL PAYMENT MADE TO FOREIGN CONTRACTORS, AND WE  DISCOVERED THAT SOME OF THE CONTRACTS THEY EXECUTED WERE GROSSLY OVER INVOICED, EITHER BY OMMISSION OR COMMISSION. ALSO, WE DISCOVERED THAT THE SUM OF (US$40.M) FORTY MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY WAS LYING IN A SUSPENCE ACCOUNT, ALTHOUGH THE FOREIGN CONTRACTOR WERE FULLY PAID THEIR ENTITLEMENT AFTER EXECUTING THE SAID CONTRACT.

WE ALL AGREED THAT THE OVER-INVOICED AMOUNT BE TRANSFERRED (FOR OUR OWN USE) INTO A BANK ACCOUNT PROVIDED BY A FOREIGN PARTNER. AS THE CODE OF CONDUCT OF FEDERAL CIVIL SERVANTS THERE ARE LAWS WHICH RESTRICT US TO A CERTAIN LEVEL OF BANKING FACILITIES WHICH DOES NOT ALLOW US THE OPPORTUNITY OF OPERATING A DOMICILIARY ACCOUNT (FOREIGN ACCOUNT) WHICH MAKES IT IMPERATIVE OF THE NEED OF A FOREIGN PARTNER LIKE YOU.

HOWEVER, IT MAY INTEREST YOU TO KNOW THAT WE HAVE SUCCEDED IN TRANSFERRING SOME OF THE MONIES BEFORE PRECISELY (US$5.M) FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY INTO A FOREIGN ACCOUNT IN MOROCCO (NORTH AFRICA), BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE PROVIDER OF THE ACCOUNT HAS SEVERED ALL FORMS OF COMMUNICATIONS WITH US IMMEDIATELY THE FUNDS WERE DISBURSED INTO HIS ACCOUNT. OUT OF THE US$5.MILLION WE WERE NOT COMPENSATED AT ALL, HOW CAN ONE GUARANTEED FULL COMPENSATION ON REMITTANCE OF THE BALANCE (US$35.MILLION) THIRTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY. WE THEREFORE SEEK YOUR ASSISTANCE BASED ON THE BALANCE AMOUNT OF US$35.MILLION WHICH CAN BE SPEEDILY PROCESSED AND FULLY REMITTED INTO YOUR NORMINATED ACCOUNT, YOU WILL BE COMPENSATED WITH 15% OF THE AMOUNT FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE AND SERVICE.

THIS TRANSACTION IS CLOSELY KNITTED AND IN VIEW OF OUR SENSITIVE POSITION, WE CANNOT AFFORD ANY MISTAKES, I ASSURE YOU THAT THIS TRANSACTION IS 100% HITCH FREE. WE WILL AVAIL YOU WITH OUR IDENTITIES AS REGARDS OUR RESPECTIVE OFFICES WHEN RELATIONSHIP IS FULLY ESTABLISHED AND SMOOTH OPERATION COMMENCES.

I AM AT YOUR DISPOSITION TO ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTION FROM YOU IN RESPECT OF THIS TRANSCATION, SO CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY THROUGH MY EMAIL ADDRESS FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON THE REQUIREMENT AND PROCEDURE.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE PUT IN MANY YEARS OF MERITORIOUS SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY AND THEREFORE WOULD NOT WANT OUR  REPUTATION DENTED, WE THEREFORE URGE YOU TO HANDLE THIS
PROPOSAL WITH STRICT CONFIDENTIALITY. PLEASE TREAT WITH STRICT CONFIDENTIALITY AND UTMOST URGENCY.
