Email:email@example.com 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 positions 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$4,320,000.00 (Four Million, Three Hundred and Twenty thousand United States Dollars) which we hope to use in purchasing Agro Allied Equipment, and also 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 of this project. I await your eager response. Yours faithfully, Chief Ade Williams. Please Quote this Reference number (AW/02/04) in your response. __________________________________________________________________________ http://www.webmail.co.za/dialup Webmail ISP - Cool Connection, Cool Price
