REQUEST FOR URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP
RE: TRANSFER OF US$10,500,000.00 AMERICAN DOLLARS INTO YOUR ACCOUNT
I, on behalf of my other colleagues from different Federal Government of
Nigeria owned parastatals decided to solicit your assistance as regards
transfer of the above mentioned amount into your bank account. Note that
these funds emanated from unclaimed contractual proceeds of contracting
firms who could not meet their financial obligation to their creditors.
Consequently, these firms went bankrupt and total liquidation.
We as holders of sensitive positions in our various parastatals were mandated
by the Federal Government to scrutinise all payments made to certain foreign
contractors and we discovered that some of the contractors have not been
paid their contractual entitlement which collectively left an amazing sum
of US$15,500,000 .00 (Fifteen Million ,Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars)
lying in a suspense Account, however, from our extensive investigation we
discovered that the foreign beneficiary companies have since been liquidated
and no longer existing for some years which motivated our intention knowing
fully well that all operations would be exceedingly smooth and completely
safe for all the parties concerned.
We have agreed on this side that the said amount would be transferred (for
our own use) into a Bank Account provided by a reliable foreign
because we are serving Government workers and the Civil Service Code does
not allow us to operate foreign Accounts.
Following our intention to carry out this laudable project expidiently we
however, succeeded in transferring part of this amount (money) precisely
US$5m (Five Million US Dollars) only into a foreign Bank Account in Beirut
- Lebanon, but the provider of the Account is up to some mischief and refuses
to comply w ith our earlier mutual agreement insisting that the total amount
be paid into his nominated Bank Account before disbursement will take effect.
We thus, believed and concluded that if in the first successful transfer
of US$5m (Five million US Dollars) we are not compensated how then are we
sure that when the balance of US$10,500,000.00 (Ten Million Five Hundred
Thousand US Dollars) is transferred into his Account that we will be sure
of our due compensation?
In the light of the foregoing, we are therefore seeking your assistance
so that the remaining amount of US$10.5m can be speedily processed and fully
remitted into your nominated Bank Account. On successful remittance of the
fund into your Account, you will be compensated with 20% of the amount for
your valuable assistance and co-operation. So far, much have been said and
due to our sensitive positions, we cannot afford a slip in this transaction,
neither can we give our identities as regards our respective offices, but
where relationship is confidently established and smooth operations
you will be furnished with all you deserve to know.
I am disposed to entertain any question(s) from you with respect to this
transaction. Contact me immediately through email first for further
on the requirements and procedure of this transaction.
Please treat with the strictest confidentiality and utmost urgency.
