Dear Friend,


PLEASE ASSIST ME TO FINALIZE THIS TRANSACTION:

I have decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction,
Let me start by introducing myself properly to you; I am Mr. Mr.

marketing firm while searching for a reliable and reputable person to
handle this transaction which involves the transfer of the sum of
Thirty Three million United States dollars (US$33 Million) only, to a
reliable account abroad, Your role is important due to the fact that
there are lots of restrictions binding civil servants in my country,
we are not allowed to operate foreign accounts.

THIS AMOUNT WAS SECURED FROM AN OVER INVOICED AMOUNT ON A CONTRACT
THAT WE AWARDED YEARS AGO AND THE CONTRACTOR HAVE EXECUTED THE
CONTRACT AND HANDED OVER TO NNPC AND HAVE RECEIVED HIS FULL PAYMENT.

will stand as one of our contractor who have executed a contract here
in Nigeria and the beneficiary of the US$33million that is ready for
payout, Note that the reason for the transfer of these funds into your
account is because of our incapability as Government officials to own
a foreign account.

All the necessary documentation for the facilitation and approval of
this fund in your favor will be carefully taken good care of hence we
are involved. I am assuring you a risk free transaction as all the
modalities for the smooth transfer of this fund into your Account have
been planned; you have the opportunity to discuss your percentage (%)
/ (success fee) as we have mapped out 20% for your assistance.
