E. O.REQUEST FOR URGENT (CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP OF THE TRANSFER OF US$45,560,000.00 (FORTY FIVEMILLION, FIVE HUNDRED AND SIXTY THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY).I hope this letter will not embarrass you since we have not had any previous communication. I got your reference from your country's trade department under private enquiry that is not related to my aim of writing you this letter and went further to have it confirmed by the Nigeria Exports Promotion Council(NEPC).I, on behalf of my other colleagues from different Federal Government of Nigeria owned parastatals decided to solicit your assistance as regards the transfer of the above stated amount into your bankaccount. This fund arose from the over-invoicing of various contracts awarded in my parastatals to certain foreign contractors some time ago.We as holders of official positions in various parastatals, were mandated by this new civilian government to scrutinize all payments made to certain foreign contractors by the past Military Government and we discovered that some of the contracts theyexecuted were grossly over-invoiced, either by omission or commission. Also we discovered that the sum of $65,560,000.00 (Sixty-Five Million, Five Hundred and Sixty Thousand United States Dollars Only)was lying in a suspense account, although the foreign contractors were fully paid their entitlements after executing the said contracts. We all agreed that theover-invoiced amount be transferred (for our own use) into a bank account provided by a foreign partner, as the code of conduct of the Federal Civil Service does not allow us to operate foreign accounts.However, we have succeeded in transferring some of these money, precisely US$20,000,000.00 (Twenty Million United States Dollars Only) into a foreignaccount in GENEVA (SWITZERLAND). Butunfortunately, the provider of the account has severed all forms of contacts with us as he has refused to adhere to our earlier mutual agreement insisting that the total amount be paid into his nominated bankaccount before disbursement will take effect. If for US$20M (Twenty Million United States Dollars Only) we are not compensated, how can one guarantee full compensation on remittance of the balance of US$45.560M (Forty-Five Million, Five Hundred and SixtyThousand United States Dollars Only).We are therefore seeking your assistance based on the balance amount of US$45.560M, which can be speedily processed and fully remitted into your nominated bankaccount. On successful remittance of the fund into your account, you will be compensated with 25% of the amount for assistance and services and 5% set asidefor expenses contingency.This transaction is closely knitted and in view of our SENSITIVE POSITION we cannot afford a slip, I assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free. We willavail you with our identities as regards ourrespective offices, when relationship is fully established and smooth operation commences. I am at your disposition to entertain any question(s) from youin respect of this transaction, so contact meimmediately through the above private email addresses( Presidency & mail)and fax number for further information on the requirements and procedure. Please note that the DEAL needs utmost confidentiality and your immediate response will be highly appreciated and we will use our own share of the money to establish a lucrative business in your country.Please you should contact me immediately with your private fax and telephone numbers where further details in respect to this transaction would be sent to.Yours truly,ALHAJI SULEIMAN ABUBAKAR.
