URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL
It is with trust and confidence that I write to make
this urgent and important business proposal to you.
I am a senior accountant with Nigeria Petroleum
Cooperation (NNPC) here in Lagos.
The proposal of this letter is to seek for your urgent
assistance in securing the worth of an already
executed remunerated contract number
NNPC/PED/1440/LAGREF/95, executed to the NNPC by
foreign contractors and the contract sum was
deliberately over invoiced (inflated contract value)
to the tune of thirty-five million, five hundred
thousand United State dollars ($35,500.00m) only. The
original contractor has been paid following the
completion and commissioning of the various contracts
and they are unaware of the over invoiced.
Presently, these fund has been approve for payment but
still floating in the central bank of Nigeria (CBN)
suspense account awaiting activation. However, since
the initial contracts were executed by foreign firms,
only a foreign firm can also make claims or act as a
beneficiary for the purpose of transferring this money
out of Nigeria. I and my colleagues agreed together to
contact you for urgent assistance. We are in control
of all the procedures and we have capability to
manipulate any kind of difficulties we may come across
during the transaction. Your assistance will be needed
for two main reasons: (a) as senior government
employee, we are not permitted by the Nigerian law to
operate foreign accounts. (b) You will assist us to
arrange on investment potentials and prospects in your
country in order to enable us reduce part of the fund
back to our country. I and my colleagues also have
agreed unanimously to compensate you with 30% of the
total sum if you assist us to transfer this money in
your nominated bank account, 10% will be set aside to
offset incidental expenses that might be incurred
either of us in the cause of effecting this transfer.
The remaining 60% shall be our share. All necessary
arrangement require for a speedy conclusion of this
transaction have been put in place with top officials
of the Nigerian Federal Ministry of finance and the
Central bank of Nigeria to enable us conclude the
whole transaction within 21 working days.
What is required from you is (1) you bank details to
be used (where this fund should be remitted). (2) The
name of the company to be used as beneficiary must be
very reliable. (3) Your private phone and fax number
for easy communication. The nature of your company?s
business is irrelevant to this transaction. It is also
very important to inform you that this transaction and
information shall be handled with absolute secrecy and
confidentiality, because this deal involves some high
ranking Nigerian Government officials who would not to
be involved/mentioned in any form of scandal, should
this deal be made open/exposed.
We shall appreciate your acceptance to assist us to
conclude this transaction in no distant time.
With best regard and God bless.
