STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL FINANCIAL PROPOSAL
RE: TRANSFER OF US$21.5 MILLION (TWENTY ONE MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND
US DOLLARS ONLY).
I am contacting you based on information and esteem recommendation I
received of you from a high ranking official in the commercial section of
the Nigerian Chambers of Commerce and Industry who guaranteed your
reliability and trustworthyness in business dealings. This business proposal
I wish to intimate you with is of mutual benefit and it's success is
entirely based on mutual trust, cooperation and a high level of
confidentiality as regard this transaction.
I am the Chairman of the contract Award/Advisory Committee (CAAC) of the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). I am seeking your assistance
to enable me transfer the sum of US$21,500,000.00 (Twenty Million,Five
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)into your private/company account.
The fund came about as a result of a contract awarded and executed on behalf
of my Ministry the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation. The contract was
supposed to be awarded to two foreign contractors to the tune of
US$65,000,000.00 (Sixty Four Million United States Dollars). But in the
course of negotiation, the contract was awarded to a Bulgarian contractor at
the cost of US$43,500,000.00 (Forty-Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars) to my benefit unknown to the contractor.
This contract has been satisfactorily executed and inspected as the
Bulgarian firm is presently securing payment from my Ministry, where I am
the Executive Director in-charge of all foreign contract payment approval.
As a civil servant still in active government service, I am forbidden by law
to operate an account outside the shores of Nigeria. Hence this message to
you seeking your assistance so as to enable me present your private/company
account details as a beneficiary of contractual claims alongside that of the
Bulgarian contractor, to enable me transfer the difference of
US$21,500,000.00 (Twenty One Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States

2. 5% for reimbursement to both parties for incidental expenses that may be
incurred during the course of the transaction.
3. 65% of the fund will be for me and my colleagues which we intend to
invest in your country with you as my partner.
We have strong reliable connections and contacts at the Central Bank of
Nigeria, as well as the Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no doubt
that all the money will be released and transferred if we get the necessary
foreign partner to assist us in this deal. Therefore,when the business is
successfully concluded we shall through our same connections withdraw all
documents used from all the concerned Government Ministries for 100%
security. I would require the following: -
1. Your company's name,address,telephone and fax numbers.
2. Your bank account and address where the money will be remitted.
The above information would be used to make formal applications as a matter
of procedure for the release of the money and onward transfer to your
It does not matter whether or not your company does contract projects of
this nature described here. The assumption is that your company won the
major contract and subcontracted it out to other companies. More Often than
not, big trading companies or firms of unrelated fields win major contracts
and subcontracts to more specialized firms for execution of such contracts.
All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for a smooth
actualisation of the transaction within the next few working days of
commencement. For further details as to the workability of this transaction,
Please contact me immediately whether or not you are interested in this
deal. If you are not,it will enable me scout for another foreign partner to
carry out this deal.

i've been saving these in my "con-artist" folder for a couple years, got i think 35 or so now... i know you're not going to believe this, but there have been (at least) a half-dozen people who have bit on the trash and some even went to foreign countries to "clinch" the deal. none of them ever been heard of since, except the ones who frantically called back for their company or family to send them more $$, and when that well ran dry they were never heard of again. "If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is". Hey, how about the people on tv last week complaining about getting skinned by some religious outfit; get this: They hand over their life savings to some religious "non-profit" organization who is supposed to be helping people in dire conditions, and these "investors" are told they'll get back a handsome return (like 20percent) on their investment.... Now, let's see, just exactly how is that supposed to happen, duhhhhhh, maybe the poor people in dire conditions are going to pay a lot of interest and the religiosos are gonna give it back to the investors......? Not on this planet?
