Hello Friend,

I am a senior director in the Nigerian Federal Ministry Of Petroleum and
Natural resources.

There is a contract fund in my ministry which has remained unclaimed for
years and after series of investigations we found out that the fund claim
was an inflated contract payment and the relevant documents to claim it
legally was missing hence the transfer of the fund was suspended
indefinitely by the federal government pending when all necessary legal
papers or documents covering the fund are provided by beneficiary of the

Therefore,If you are interested to work with me then i want you to come
forward and claim this fund as as the true beneficiary and we shall share
the fund accordingly.with my position and your cooperation/understanding
all the legal documents backing the fund in your name/address as the true
beneficiary shall be legally obtained and documented for transfer and the
transfer of the fund shall take place immediately.

Please,note that there is no risk involved as long as you are able to keep
everything to yourself only and maintain absolute confidentiality now and
after you have received the fund.

Yours Sincerely,
Mr.Michael Iwobi.
