I am making this contact with you after satisfactory information gathered from the EU-Africa Chamber of Commerce (EUACC). Based on this, we are convinced that you will provide us with a solution to effect remittance of the sum of $148,000,000 resulting from over costing of contracts done for the African Union (AU) by foreign companies.

I am the chairman of the contract award commission of the African Union. My committee is responsible for all contracts award in all the member states in the African Union. We evaluate and secure approvals for payment of contracts executed for AU. We have tactfully raised values to some foreign companies for onward disbursement among ourselves, the Director of Accounts / Finance and Director of Audit.

This transaction is 100% safe. We are seeking your assistance and permission to remit this amount into your Account.
Please respond if you are interested.

Thanks for your co-operations.
Yours faithfully
