Dear Sir,
First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is
by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and "top secret". We
are top officials of the Federal Government Contract Review Panel
who are interested in importation of goods into our country with funds
that are presently trapped in Nigeria. In order to commence this
business, we solicit your assistance to enable us transfer into your
account the said-trapped funds. The source of the fund is as follows:
During the regime of the last Military transitional government of Gen.
Abdulsalami Abubakar, government officials set up companies and
awarded themselves contracts which were grossly over invoiced in
various ministries. The present democratic government of President
Olusegun Obasanjo set up the Contract Review Panel and we have
identified a lot of inflated contract funds that are presently floating in the
Central Bank of Nigeria ready for payment. However, by virtue of our
position as civil servants and members of this panel, we cannot acquire
this money in our names. My colleagues in the panel have therefore
delegated me as a matter of trust, to look for an oversea partner into
whose account we would transfer the sum of US$31,320,000.00
(Thirty-One Million, Three Hundred and Twenty thousand United
States Dollars) in which we hope to use in purchasing Agro Allied
Equipment, and to enable us to own properties and invest in the stable
economy of your country. Hence, we are sending you this email
message. We have agreed to share the money thus: (1). 20% for the
account owner (you) (2). 70% for us (the officials of the CRP) (3). 10%
to be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses. Please
acknowledge receipt of this message for proper briefing on the safe
modality for the execution to Email:
Yours faithfully
Dr. Rasheed Bako
